Create apps for Android, iOS and Windows from your Windows 10 PC.

 Microsoft Build 2017 event was a display of Microsoft’s planned release of awesomeness for the year. As a new venture Microsoft teased a new aspect demonstrating how apps could be easily created on a Windows PC that would work on iOS, Android, and Windows.

The only major hurdle in the idea was that the standard libraries present for building interfaces is not cross-platform compatible. So, Microsoft announced a new unified markup language for user interface elements XAML Standard 1.0 and the .NET Standard 2.0 library for the code.

Or, in simpler terms — Microsoft now has a shared code library that allows developers to easily create apps for all three platforms with the same user interface with a minimal amount of effort. Which can only be a good thing for everyone, regardless of the OS you prefer.

*This feature is yet to arrive on the upcoming fall creators update for Windows 10.
