  • That depends on the app.

    In general, a Windows Store app can be built for ARM and will then run on Windows RT. The API are the same and they share the same code and project.

    That said, Windows RT devices tend to have lower specs than Windows 8 devices so you may want to test to make sure the app runs well.
