Converting Android apps into Windows Universal apps

by Volker Weber

Microsoft wants to make us believe that it is almost zero effort to turn an Android app into a Windows Universal app. Here is your challenge, Microsoft:

You have been working on a Sonos controller for years, and have been testing it internally for months. How about you make it work and release it? Maybe as a public beta? As a universal app of course.

Should be a piece of cake, right?

Hehe, gut, Volker. In their face 😁

According to this, it should be a matter of *minutes* 😇

Oder sie nehmen einfach die App für iOS ;) Soll ja auch unstressig sein die umzumodeln. ;)

Aber da mein Lumia 930 leider im Regen in meiner Tasche (sic!) den Wassertod gestorben ist, interessiert mich das leider nicht mehr. Dem iPhone das daneben lag geht's übrigens immer noch super.

Glück gehabt. iPhones mögen auch kein Wasser.

Submerged my 6+ on the second day I had it. Quickly taking it out of the water and sure enough it was ill-behaving. Put it in a bag of rice for two days and it recovered.
Still using it for Sonos even though I prefer their hardware controller above all. I get it, it was too expensive but would let the customers decide if they want to pay the premium. Oh well. At least that platform is still supported by Sonos. ;-)
