    How can we tell if an app is a UWP? Now that the store no longer says "Built for Windows 10," how can we tell if it's a universal app or not?

    Some apps do mention it in the description.

    Also, if you have the anniversary update installed on your phone, you can scroll down on the app page and you'll be able to see what platforms it is available for. For example, if you was to open Twitter, you will see the options to sort reviews by PC or Mobile, and that tells you that it is available on both.
    MAUXIIS and Chintan Gohel like this.

    Yea, some of them do have it in the description. But even some of the UWP have Windows 8.1 as it's platform. Can't really use that definitively, right?

    That's a great point. You can't. Not sure if this is something Microsoft will later highlight or not.

    the other way would be to try opening store and checking that same app if it is available for that device, so pc or mobile or xbox

    Like I checked vinci app which is only available for mobile and on pc it will say it does not work on this device
