Microsoft to increase cut from app revenues to 95pc for developers

The app was unveiled today for Windows 10 at Microsoft's Build Developer conference. We don't know the full extent of the differences just yet, but the app will begin rolling out to Windows Insiders fairly soon, so we should learn more about the differing limitations then.

Specifically, Microsoft has introduced a set of technology experiences aimed at addressing a more mobile workforce, including streamlining mobile Windows experiences across a variety of devices and platforms while blending web and app experiences.

Microsoft is also in the lane to give developers access to new tools and APIs to make enterprise apps. The new Microsoft Launcher on Android will support the Windows 10 Timeline feature for additional sharing capabilities.

Microsoft has joined forces with the world's largest drone company, DJI, to create new applications for the unmanned aircraft in agriculture, construction and public safety.

The experience on this feature may vary depending on whether the user has an iOS or Android device, due to Android's lack of restrictions, Microsoft will be able to mirror more features and be more dynamic.

The app is capable of allowing Windows 10 users to access their texts, photos and notifications as instantly as they appear on their phones. The updated Microsoft Teams APIs in the Microsoft Graph will allow developers to create organization-specific app in Teams, and these apps could be published to the Teams app store. The Your Phone app will be available for both iOS and Android and the way you interact with the application will obviously be different on both operating systems. Or respond to that urgent text message from your girlfriend without having to remove your phone from your pocket? However, as mentioned, gaming app makers get no relief as they will continue to pay a 30 percent of net revenue.

This is something we have seen from third party apps in the past, but now it's Microsoft's turn to have a crack of the whip. It's also adding rich card interaction to programs like Outlook, which will support Microsoft Pay so that you can pay bills directly from your inbox.
