|Deploying Metro-Style Applications|
|Tuesday, 24 July 2012|
Windows 8 and Windows RT (the version of Windows 8 for ARM-based devices) emphasize Metro-style applications, which feature a touch-centric user interface design that is much different than traditional Windows applications. Metro-style applications also bring new installation techniques, including the Windows Store and several "sideloading" options for organizational application deployment. Metro-style application developers need to learn the Store's submission and certification processes, while consumers and end users need to become accustomed to using the Store. IT departments need to understand and implement Store usage policies and sideloading techniques to manage application distribution to employee PCs and devices.
