Read the Windows 8.1 UX and UI Guidelines
Windows 8.1 developers need to read the UX and UI guidelines before proceeding to the creation of apps. Find more information about this below.
If you’re looking to create apps for the Windows 8 platform, then you need to read the Windows 8.1 UX and UI guidelines before doing. We’ve previously explained what are the new features in the Windows 8.1 SDK and how to download it, and also provided links for the Debugging Tools in Windows 8.1. Now, it is time for the UX/UI guidelines.
Unfortunately, unlike the previous UX and UI guidelines, then one for Windows 8.1 isn’t available in the PDF format. So, head over to this page from Microsoft.com to find more about the UX and user interface guidelines. We’ll be analyzing the guidelines ourselves and will soon provide an article with some of the new features in the UX and UI guidelines.
Also, you might need to have a look at the index of UX guidelines for Windows Store apps, as well, where you will find detailed information on how to make your app ready to meet Microsoft’s requirements.
