It doesn’t matter how well an operating system performs, how nice it looks, or what kind of features it has, if there aren’t any good apps then nobody is going to use it. Microsoft knows this all too well, which is why the company has rolled out the beta of Windows Bridge for iOS, an open source SDK that makes it easier for iOS developers to bring their apps over to Windows 10. 

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft is pushing users toward their ecosystem harder than ever, but one of the major complaints is still a lack of compatible apps. Microsoft assured developers that a Microsoft tool to go along with the SDK would help bring apps from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store to Windows. Now, we’re getting a first glimpse of how that process will look as Microsoft rolls out the beta of the open source Windows Bridge for iOS. It’s still very much a work in progress, at least according to the Microsoft blog, and a number of the features that were promised when it was announced still aren’t fully operational. Like with the Insider program, Microsoft is interested in building a solid foundation of developer feedback and bug reports well before the official release of the software. It’s also open source, released under an MIT license, so users will be able to not just provide feedback, but also potential solutions.
