  • hi , im a beginner in developing applications . 
    i have been searching online about the tools required.
    I have come across various softwares like VS15/13 Community , ultimate and pro.
    what does these all tools differ about?

    can we create windows phone applications in community for free?
    and also can we use JS CSS and HTML to develop applications in Community.

  • Hi Ariot. You can download the Community Version of VS2015 and it will have all of the tools necessary to write a Windows Phone app, including emulators (virtual machine) for phone. However, you must have a version of Windows (Pro/Ent) and a machine which will support HyperV in order to do so.

    You can us JS/CSS/HTML to write apps as well.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
