Turn your WordPress blog into a Windows 10 app with the latest Windows App Studio update

Microsoft's free Windows App Studio tools have added some new features for anyone who wants to make a quick and easy Windows 10 app without any coding. One of them will allow a WordPress blog to be display in a Windows 10 app.

Microsoft says:

"We introduced a new WordPress data source that lets you connect your app to your WordPress blog. It pulls in content and displays it beautifully in your app so you can free your blog from the web and get it in front of 110+ million Windows 10 users by publishing it to the Store."

Microsoft has also added a Microsoft Ad control to the Windows App Studio tools, which will allow users to include ad banners, with content provided by Microsoft Advertising, as a way to gain revenue. Finally, there's also a way to include any links to related content in the app:

"Did you ever want to show related content in a section (such as speaker information for an event listing in a Convention app, or comments from a blog post)? Now it can be easily done in Windows App Studio Beta. This feature opens up new use cases and we will show them off in new templates in the future."

Microsoft has also added some new design features in Windows App Studio, including an image carousel that allows photos to be shown in a slideshow inside an app.
