What to expect if coming from iOS to Windows Phone

     • More rapid development
         Up to 4:1* advantage in time and code size vs. iOS

     • Apps are prettier by default
         Beautiful layouts & parallax scrolling built into stock templates

     • Typically less custom UI work
         Platform assumes high UI standardization across apps


                            * For apps where code is heavily UI-based

3.18.2013 - WWW.QUBOP.COM
4500 LINES OF CODE   900 LINES OF CODE

Visual Studio: substantial code automatically generated with app templates
3.18.2013 - WWW.QUBOP.COM
WP8 = 3 screen sizes, WP7 = 1 screen size (“Emulator 7.1”)
       Overall development experience: more like iOS than Android
