    Developers grab the WP8.1 SDK and develop top notch apps for all of us to enjoy ! i'm sure the new SDK will make your work much more easier than before, I suppose.....

    On second thoughts without having WP8.1 how are the devs going to test their apps?

    They can run them via the WP 8.1 emulator. I was playing around with the emulator just to see how things (keyboard, notification center, Cortana etc) looked, and worked in person.

    I've downloaded VS for windows express 2013 and installed fine, but I can't seem to download the emulators. when I run the download manager it does nothing. when I open VS the emulators are listed but when I use them I get a message saying the VHD file does not exist which I assume is because I haven't downloaded them. I've tried and tried but can't get them to download. anyone else having this issue?

    The SDK is part of VS2013 install. You'll have to check the checkbox for phone development before the install starts. When you install update 2 (RC), it will install the phone 8.1 SDK and emulators. If you didn't do this, you may need to rerun the VS install and add those features. When you create a phone project and hit F5, it'll start the emulator.

    Yep , Also, i would just like to report that the
    Code:
    Geolocator geolocator = new Geolocator();
    Geoposition position = await geolocator.GetGeopositionAsync().AsTask();
    position.Coordinate.(Longitude/Latitude)
    is now unsupported and replaced by:
    Code:
    Geolocator geolocator = new Geolocator();
    Geoposition position = await geolocator.GetGeopositionAsync().AsTask();
    position.Coordinate.Point.Position.(Longitude/Latitude)

    I should mention that the current status of the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK is RC (release candidate). It should officially be declared stable within a few weeks.

    Agreed. I installed once this RC and forced to fully reinstall Visual Studio later because of bugs. WP 8.1 SDk only two emulators work for me, the rest give error "Unsupported screen size" or something like this.

    Microsoft made biggest mistake to introduce new WP 8.1 and not giving it right after that to everyone and do not release stable SDK! I think most of people will receive update at the end of this year! This is fail as Samsung at that point will replicate every good part of 8.1! :(
