    Microsoft is getting closer to opening its bridge to iOS developers to help them develop versions of their apps to Windows 10.

    Microsoft officials are remaining mum about the status of its "Astoria" bridge for bringing Android apps to Windows 10. (Word is plans for that bridge may have been scuttled.) But it looks like it's full steam ahead with the iOS bridge, codenamed "Islandwood."

    FraWin.com's Cassim Ketfi discovered an update to Microsoft's Windows Bridge for iOS page that indicates Microsoft will be launching a new web tool "in the coming weeks" designed to automatically analyze iOS apps for compatibility with the iOS bridge.

    The coming app analyzer is in testing at the moment, but those interested in trying out the tool can sign up now through Microsoft's site to be one of the first to get results from it.

    Here's more on what the analyzer will do from Microsoft's page:

    As a Windows Phone user (Lumia 925), this makes me happy. There are so many apps people with I-Phones use, that just aren't available on Windows Phone, and the alternatives available frequently are of no use (particularly for social apps).

    I know that Ballmer wanted Android apps for Windows phone, but if Islandwood works out and I-Phone apps become available for Windows Phone, then Ballmer can suck it. That will be good enough, and won't require re-writing Windows Phone OS in order to implement it, like the bridge to Android apps would.
