Prism, for those that didn’t know, is an app that allows you to keep track of all your bills and stay organized. Prism connects with all of your billers and automatically notifies you when a new bill is due. You can use Prism to pay your biller directly and there are no fees or strings attached.
Prism currently has a Windows Phone app (titled: Prism Bill Pay), a Windows Store app, as well as an app on Android and iOS. A Prism user reached out to the company on Twitter and asked if they plan to release a universal app for Windows 10. Prism responded by saying yes.
@stilo602 Definitely planning to, once Microsoft releases their new virtualization platform SDK that will allow us to port from iOS/Android!

This is obviously great news for those of you who are Windows supporters. Once Windows 10 RTM is released, Project Astoria will become available and provides Universal Windows Platform Bridge toolkit that will enable developers to build Windows 10 apps for phones by reusing developers’ Android code. This will open up a whole new world of possibilities. You can sign up for the limited developer preview of Project Astoria here.
How do you feel about companies porting their existing Android/iOS apps to Windows 10 rather than creating brand new experiences? Share your opinions in the comments below.
