What you need to know

  • There's a UWP Community Discord server filled with talented developers.
  • They've come together to kick off Launch 2021, where they're showcasing new apps.
  • You can see the apps firsthand at the event's webpage.

A number of Windows app developers have gathered their app efforts to produce Launch 2021, an event showcasing the best creations from those within the UWP Community Discord server. Launch 2021 has an app for everyone on display: Music recognition, interactive picture-making, and text editing are just a few examples of the features being brought to the table by the wide assortment of new apps.

Be sure to check out the Launch 2021 event page to see the full range of what's on display, especially if you're in the mood to try out new apps on your Windows-powered machine. One app being shown off will help you track crypto information and prices. Another lets you remotely manage your ARK: Survival Evolved server. Seriously, if you find yourself in need of a particular type of app, take a look at the carefully cultivated lineup provided by Launch 2021, as the tool of your dreams might just be there.

If you think this all sounds cool, know that this isn't even the first time Launch has happened. Launch 2021 is the third annual event in the series, with the first having been in 2019. What this means is that you may want to keep an eye on the UWP Community Discord server and UWP Community website so that you're ready for a potential Launch 2022.

Even if you're not keen on joining a community, be sure to check out the apps on display at the virtual event. Neat new additions to the Microsoft Store's massive library of apps are on display and are sure to make your Windows 11 (or 10, or other OS) life more interesting.

  • Didn’t they get the memo? Even Microsoft isn’t using UWP anymore, it is dead.
  • Didn't you get the memo? Latest Microsoft store and snipping tool apps are UWP
  • Yay! I Hope more come lol
    🥳🥳👏👏 In all honestly the application and adoption of uwp has been... Poorly done on Microsofts part. Maybe with webview2 and the plethora of other changes coming things can start changing.
  • I would like an app that revives live tiles.
