  • Hi,

    creating a normal desktop application (maybe based on XAML) should be enough. You should keep in mind that the display is a little bit smaller and the user will use his fingers. That is the reason why you should make controls bigger in size. You should definitely test your application on a real device to see if you can use your application (are the control big enough? can you reach everything? etc.).
