    I understand the whole 1 store for windows 10, but what does that mean for the apps in the Windows phone 8 store?
    If my app is only in the Windows 8 phone store, will it be available to be installed on a Windows 10 mobile device?

    The developer needs to adjust the code :)

    It already is most likely since W10M is backwards compatible and the 8 Store is being brought over.

    Thanks for the replies.
    So if it is brought over, do you know what will happen for future updates to the Win Phone 8 app store, will they also be replicated over as well?


    Thanks for the reply.
    So do you know what will happen with future updates to the Win Phone 8 store (after the initial copy over)? Will they be replicated across also?

    Of course, don't worry about it.

    even wp7 apps can be used on w10m but some of the older apps will have their layout a bit screwed up. some will not be able to connect to internet. had these app automatically installed after I restored an old backup in w10m. a bit surprising that dicebox and dicebox rpg (early wp7 apps) working flawlessly on w10m.

    There are some Windows Phone 8 apps that are not being ported over due to incompatibility, and the developers long ago abandoned them and they will likely not be updated. For example, don't expect Plants vs. Zombies from PopCap. If you own it, like I do, play it a last few times before you make the switch, because you'll lose it after.

    Most apps will port over with no issues, however, and will be moved by Microsoft. Some will no longer be available, but that won't be very many.
