Is windows 8,1 app is a windows universal app RRS feed

  • Question

  • As far as I know , windows  universal app is an application which can be run on any windows platform ( mobile, tablet. desktop or laptop ) Am I correct?

    In that case why windows 8.1 app is called as universal app? because for 8.1 , we need to create separate packages for both store App and Phone App

    In windows 10, single package will run in all devices  and we can call it as Windows universal App, but why windows 8,1 called as universal app. Please provide some details

  • The windows 8.1 app model was the first step in combining the phone and store app models.  Windows 10 uwp completed the path to combining the phone and store apps
