  • Hi, Actually, it depends on the developer. I suggest go for C# since you are a .net developer already.

  • Do you need Windows Phone 8 or can you target Windows Phone 8.1? For 8.1 you can convert your existing Windows Store app to a Universal app and share most of the code.

    Note that your first link is for Windows Runtime Component not for apps. On Windows Runtime Components on Windows Phone 8 must be written in C++, but apps are usually written in C#. On Windows and WP8.1 components can be in .Net as well.

    Unless your app is DirectX you will use C# for it on Windows Phone 8.
