How metro apps interact with traditional apps

    Question

  •       The metro style app looks like pretty modern, beautiful and will be accepted by more and more users.  But now most applications are classic not metro on PC and they will coexist for some time. In this case, how metro apps interact with classic apps? Can we invoke classic app in metro app or vice versa? how we can transfer data each other? And so on.

  • Classic apps will run in desktop such as when you try open Computer , but this is the idea that give opportunity to developer to build more metro apps. There is still time untill release of Windows 8 and in this time I believe many developers are start thinking about metro apps developer.

    In Windows 8 you will see:

    1)Application that run as classic such as many of them at this moment

    2)Application that run as metro-app , such as weather and others

    3)Applications that will run in both mode that user could switch , such as Control Panel (metro and classic) and Internet Explorer 10
