Device Apps in Metro Style apps

    Question

  • Looks like the Deivce Apps in Metro Style( metro style device apps) are meant for devices that can be connected to your PC. Just like there are Metro style apps for connected devices , can there be Metro style apps for network connected devices? The scenario is like this: We run a Metro app and  it senses all the network connected devices whose package family name is contained in the Device Meta data in the app.

  • Metro style apps aren't meant to install devices. Windows supports automatic installation of some UPnP devices as well as WSD printers, so that is the customer experience we are recommending.
