    Hello everyone! I have a question! If an app is built using Microsoft's UWP, in store must say "Built for Windows 10" right?

    I don't believe that HAS TO say that, it IS a selling point because it implies a touch-friendly interface which is optimal for smaller screens.

    Oh. I thought "Built for Windows 10 " meant that you're using new UWP APIs..

    That's my understanding.

    I found an article that clears up this whole "Built for Windows 10" matter:


    http://www.winbeta.org/news/built-wi...-windows-store


    In short, this label serves to distinguish app that were built for Windows 8 from the ones that were designed with the latest API for Windows 10. The key difference mentioned is how the apps scale.

    If you went to school, you should be able to read and comprehend a "whole" article. And I shouldn't have to spoon-feed it to you.

    "Running Windows 8.1 apps in Windows 10 can be awkward and create a mixed user interface so knowing an app is built for Windows 10 is a draw."

    That doesn't describe why an app is a UWP or not, it describes a problems that could occur when using an 8.1 app on W10. It doesn't even mention scaling issues!

    Maybe you can read this....as you obviously went to school.

    To the OP the link is a good read to understanding UWP. If you have trouble understanding then mrmobileperformance can spoon-feed you.

    This thread is about:

    >>Hello everyone! I have a question! If an app is built using Microsoft's UWP, in store must say "Built for Windows 10" right?<<

    The article you linked says nothing about whether UWP app must be called "Build for Windows 10" or not. instead you're going into a straw man argument about scaling issues. If you want to the topic to scaling issues why don't you start a new thread about scaling issues.
