What Mobile Apps Can I Build with VS 2015?

|

Visual Studio 2015 is the most complete development environment for building mobile apps. With this release, you can build:

 Apps for Windows 10. At the time of publication, Windows 10 is available as a Technical Preview and you can build apps for the pre-release version by installing the developer tools for Visual Studio 2015.

 Apps for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 using XAML and C#/VB.

 Apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 using XAML and C#/VB.  Universal Windows Apps using XAML and C#. Visual Basic is also supported but requires some additional, manual steps.  Apps for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 using WinJS libraries (HTML5/JavaScript).

 Apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 using WinJS libraries (HTML5/JavaScript).

 Universal Windows Apps using WinJS libraries (HTML5/JavaScript).  Cross-platform apps for Windows, Windows Phone, Android, and iOS with C#/F# and XAML installing extensions and tools from Xamarin.

 Cross-platform apps for Windows, Windows Phone, Android 2.3.3 and later, and iOS (6, 7, and 8) using Apache Cordova and the integrated Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova.

Microsoft and Xamarin joined together in a partnership to make better tooling integration in Visual Studio 2015. However, the Xamarin suite does not ship with Visual Studio and is a product that you must purchase separately. For building apps for Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x with either XAML/.NET or HTML5/JavaScript, the MSDN library provides very good documentation. That said, in this chapter we focus on new tools for building apps using the JavaScript APIs from Apache Cordova with Visual Studio 2015, including a brand new Android emulator built by Microsoft.
