Microsoft has just made it even easier to publish your apps to the Windows Phone Store and Windows Store via the Windows App Studio Beta. According to Microsoft, over 1.1 million people have used Windows App Studio Beta to quickly turn their ideas into an app. Now, Microsoft has automated the process of creating screenshots of your app and helps you get your app published to the Store quicker than ever.
“Now after you create your app and select Publish Package, you will get a .zip file that contains your Store-ready publish packages, up to six screenshots of your app, the app logo you created, and publication instructions – everything you need to submit your app to the Store. You’ll of course need a Dev Center account to submit your apps. We’ve even produced videos that walk through how to publish your App Studio apps to the Windows Phone Store and the Windows Store,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
