  • This doesn't help much on the technical side, but I would encourage you to read this case study: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/windows/apps/hh868262

    Win8 is a different platform that iOS and I think that apps re-think their designs will do much better than those that are strictly ports from iOS.

  • There is a new app porting service by Bsquare (client) which was developed in collaboration with Microsoft to help you with that.

    The service adapts existing iOS, Android and legacy Windows apps for Microsoft’s new PC and mobile operating systems faster and better to speed delivery and reduce costs.

    If you're not familiar with Windows Phone 8 framework it could take an average iOS or Android developer team months to learn the tools, libraries and structures to begin porting apps. 

    Because Microsoft is spending more than $1 billion launching Windows 8, this is probably the biggest porting opportunity in the history of the industry for applications that can get in front of that wave to generate the most attention and visibility.
