While still in its infancy, Continuum has great potential for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Universal apps. In this Channel 9 presentation, Keri Moran, Gino Sega, and Liz Threlkeld of the Windows Shell Engineering team, talk about how developers can create Windows 10 Universal apps for Continuum in the video below.
Microsoft tries to lure developers to create apps as part of the Windows 10 Universal app system by showing them an early look at Continuum. Throughout the Channel 9 presentation, numerous issues and hiccups that arise with the demonstration of Continuum. However, the potential of what Continuum can become is evident to anyone that sees it in action. If you are using the Wireless Display Adapter, or the Wired Display Dock, Continuum allows you to use your Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL as a portable PC.

Continuum is hobbled by the fact that it is only available using Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL. To grow and reach more users as Microsoft plans to in this Channel 9 presentation, Microsoft will have to find a way to make Continuum available on more Lumia phones.
