Compare UWP to Winforms (the old 32bit app stuff), making a menu system in Winforms is simple, you drag a menu onto your form and you have a menu bar, you type into the prompted space and you have a button... it is easy. but menus and buttons react how you expect. Take UWP... you need to custom make the Hamburger menu yourself, which is why all the UWP app's menus never feel consistant... even amongst Microsoft's own apps. They need to work hard to give developers the ability to get into the meat of the app (the actual reason they are making the app) rather than having to worry or bother with the UI. I agree that UI and UX is an important part of apps and should be completely customisable... but please for the love of all things .Net... give us some standard controls to use. Really hoping they announce more UWP controls at Build17 :) As for developing for Multiplatform... as a indie dev using Unity... its fairly easy. Unity exports the game as a UWP project that you compile using VS2015 or later. I recently gave up on Android... yes, i gave up... I had the OnePlus 3 which recieved the Nouget update and i didnt like it... i tried many launchers but none were as good as the Windows Mobile start screen. I also love that my PC, xbox and phone all run the same windows build, I hope Microsoft succeeds in the mobile market, I really dont want to suffer android or iOS again...
