Windows 10 and Universal Windows App

UWP is an app for the Windows 10 and Windows 10 runs on a number of hardware devices: PC, tablet, Xbox, HoloLens, Surface Hub etc. UWP with just one API set and one app package and one store can reach all screen sizes from the smallest to the largest.

It can support different modes of interaction;
mouse + key board
game controller

Programming UWP apps is very flexible, just not limited to C# and XAML. You can use JavaScript(& HTML). You could also use Unity or MonoGame. You can mix them as well.

You will create just one project for (any) every device you want to address.

Let me enumerate the features:
  • Common API surface across all devices
  • Extension SDKs to do specific stuff on chosen device
  • Apps packaged using .AppX packaging format and distributed from store
  • One store for all devices
  • Adaptive controls and input are supported(Keyword Responsive design)
Go on, monetize your app!
