Metro Style App Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a very basic question, is Metro Style UI changed to Modern Style? I have downloaded WinSDK in which I don't see Metro Style App Template in Visual Studio, what I see is Windows Store App. 

    Is windows Store App same as Metro Style/Modern UI Style? if not then how do I create metro style apps?

  • Metro Style Apps is now Windows Store Apps. Till releasing Windows 8 Release Preview (build 8400), MS says it Metro Style Apps and after releasing Windows 8 RTM (build 9200) renamed it to Windows Store Apps.

    Actually, "metro" is a design principle which is generic. It seems, due to trade mark issue MS has changed the name.

    Modern UI style also belongs to the same thing.Though introducing it several ways (using several terminologies) to the developers, philosophy of all are almost similar.
