Microsoft has finally made its Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app templates available for Adobe Photoshop. Previously, the templates were only available for Adobe Illustrator and Microsoft PowerPoint.

The templates contain UWP elements such as common controls, fonts, patterns theme colors, and type styles. Users can simply copy elements from the templates into their own Photoshop files. There’s also a template made up of nine screen sizes that enable for creating mockups to show the user how his app will scale on different screen sizes from 4-inch phones to 27-inch desktops. The templates also help the user to quickly create polished apps and visualize what the UI of the app will look like when the app is finished.
