    Huge news: Windows 10 can run reworked Android and iOS apps

    After months of rumors, Microsoft is revealing its plans to get mobile apps on Windows 10 today. While the company has been investigating emulating Android apps, it has settled on a different solution, or set of solutions, that will allow developers to bring their existing code to Windows 10.

    iOS and Android developers will be able to port their apps and games directly to Windows universal apps, and Microsoft is enabling this with two new software development kits. On the Android side, Microsoft is enabling developers to use Java and C++ code on Windows 10, and for iOS developers they’ll be able to take advantage of their existing Objective C code. "We want to enable developers to leverage their current code and current skills to start building those Windows applications in the Store, and to be able to extend those applications," explained Microsoft’s Terry Myerson during an interview with The Verge this morning.

    Yeah, that's a couple weeks old. They revealed much of this at BUILD about two weeks ago. I even posted some news about this. Funny how it's just now getting noticed.

    This will be good for me I've got quite a few IOS and Android apps, hopefully they'll port some of them over.
