Hence, in order for you to increase your website’s ranking in the search engine, it is essential for you to write and provide good quality contents towards your reader, which not only limits to the web contents of your website, but also with the blog contents.

The reason behind this is with the fact when it comes to web contents there is always a limitation behind is; you have a limited amount of space and number to display the contents.

The app market for Microsoft Windows 8.1 is growing… as per MetroStore Scanner there are now more than 150,000 apps available in the Windows app store, an incredibly good number in contrast to what they were a year ago. The reason for this rapid growth was primarily due to the reward system introduced by the Microsoft to lure developers to create and submit excellent apps to the Windows Store.

While far off from the incredible number of apps in Google Play Store and Apple App Store, 150,000 apps in the Windows Store means your app for Windows has an excellent chance of standing out on top. This is the perfect time to go for Windows app development. Besides, Windows app development is a lot easier than it seems, and you do not even need to know how to code!

Begin with Windows 8.1 App Development

If you are already a developer with in-depth knowledge of Microsoft technologies, then you can easily create a Windows app – no steep learning curve involved. Besides, you will probably have everything you need for development i.e. the coding tools.

To develop apps for Windows 8.1, you will need Visual Studio Express 2013, which is free and available to download from Microsoft’s website. Of course, you will certainly need Windows 8.1, as well.

Programming Skills

If you want to create an app by writing your own code, then you will need knowledge of either a programming language, such as C# (C Sharp), C++, or Visual Basic and XAML, or a web development language, such as CSS, JavaScript, and HTML5.

If you are unfamiliar with these languages, free e-books are available from Microsoft Press, which will help you with Windows app development. A plenty of code samples are also available from Microsoft’s website that will help and make things easier.

How to Develop Windows App without Programming Skills

If coding is not your thing and you still want to develop a simple app for Windows 8.1, Windows App Studio is just for you. Windows App Studio allows you to build an entire app, even if you do not possess any coding skills. With this App Studio, you can create simple apps with static pages and with feeds from YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and any other compatible RSS feeds. Easy-to-follow tutorial is available to get you started with App Studio.

Building “Touch-First”

Coding Windows app is similar to the way one would code a program for the Windows desktop. The interface, however, is something new altogether. The latest Windows operating system uses Modern UI (User Interface), and it focuses primarily on touch screen devices.
Microsoft wants app developers to design for “touch-first.” App developers will need to focus more on graphical aspects and consider things, such as keeping adequate spacing between tabs in the app so that users can select it effortlessly with their finger, which is by the way larger than a mouse pointer.
The consequence of this “touch-first” design requirement is that you will require spending more time on the design, rather than on building the application.
Furthermore, when you are going to develop an app for Windows devices, you will also need to consider how the app will look on different devices with different screen orientations. In recent Microsoft BUILD conference, Microsoft announced the release of an update for Visual Studio 2013, which will permit developers to create universal Windows 8.1 apps that will run on PCs, Tablets, and Phones. Therefore, considering the aspect of screen orientation has become even more important now for the developers while developing Windows app.

Mastering Windows 8.1 Design

Mastering Windows 8.1 design may sound tough, but useful web pages and books are available now, which can help you get a firm grip on the Modern UI design. The Plan your Windows Store app pages on Microsoft MSDN are an excellent starting point. They will guide you through all the necessary things that you need to consider while designing your app.

Furthermore, the Design Guidelines for Windows Store app pages offer some UX (User Experience) guidance as well as information on things, such as:

  • How to organize your app
  • Where to place commands like copy and paste
  • What commands will go in charms and what will go in app bar
  • What touch gestures are available and which ones to use
  • Where to place ads

Testing your App

After creating the right design and writing the proper code for your app, you will require testing your app before submitting it in the Windows Store. To help test your app, Microsoft offers Windows App Certification Kit, which analyzes your app code and evaluates the app for reliability, performance, and adherence to Windows Security features. The Kit also conducts a test to check if the app adapts to the Windows 8.1 Modern UI.

Submitting your App to the Windows Store

Once you are through with the testing, the next step is to submit your app to the Windows Store for approval. To do this, it is a compulsory that you have a Windows Store account. Unfortunately, for Windows Store account, you will have to pay a small approximate fee of $19 USD. The account validity is 1 year; hence, you will require renewing it every year if you wish to continue building and submitting apps to Windows Store. If you are a corporate, the fee is $99 USD per year. If you are a student or a start-up business, you can get a free Windows Store account through Microsoft DreamSpark and Microsoft BizSparka respectively.

Submitting your App

After you get the Windows Store account, it is time to submit your app for approval. This is the final stage. You will need to upload your app to the Windows Store where Microsoft will test and inspect it. Unfortunately, like most of the approval processes, there is no set timescale – it entirely depends upon how complicated your app is and how many apps are submitted. If, hope it does not happen, your app is rejected, you will need to review it again, fix the problem, and then resubmit it.

Cheers! You have your own Windows 8.1 App

Once your app gets approval, it will feature in the Windows Store. From here, your next journey begins. People will search and if they find your app useful, they will download it. If you have enabled advertisements in your app, you will earn some good revenue; else, you will at least earn a good name for yourself.

Why is it a good idea to go for PHP development? Well, the answer is pretty simple—it is beneficial in many ways.

In this technological epoch, people spend most of their time on the computers, smart devices (smartphone & tablets), and the internet. Because of this, it has become indispensable for businesses—both large and small—to have an online presence in order to do business. To have an online presence, the best way is to own a website. Anyone can build a website these day—free tools and building blocks are available. Nevertheless, such a website will not be sufficient—it will not entice visitors. Further, it will also fail to gain any visibility in various search engines—from where users will most often find the website—if essential SEO elements are not added while building a website. Aside from the looks and SEO aspects, website security is also a big concern that needs consideration while building a website. In short, to have a thriving online presence, a business needs a reliable, robust, and versatile website.

Fortunately, to have such a potent website today is no big deal. Businesses, in fact, have numerous options when it comes to getting a potent website built. By numerous options, we mean web technology options. There are Microsoft’s ASP.NET, as well as Open Source’s PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby, and lots of others. Each web technology is special in its own domain, but for reliable, robust, versatile, and affordable web solutions, PHP development has gained tremendous acceptance in the past few years. Not as old as Perl and Python, which are certainly excellent web programming languages for building websites and web applications, PHP still dominates the web with over 80 percent usage! According to usage statistics from builtwith.com, over 47,025,657 websites on the web are powered by PHP.

Businesses today can easily find and hire the services of experienced PHP developers in their locality simply by performing an internet search for a keyword like “Experienced PHP developers.” Of course, before hiring, a little research about the developers is necessary.

CMS Integration

Because the business is always growing, to reflect the growth, its website should also adapt with the growth. To reflect the growth on the website, by adding latest news and info, hiring a developer every time, is not a reasonable strategy. For such situation, a good, versatile web CMS (content management system) is useful. A content management system is a web software that works on the backend of the website, allowing website owner to modify and update the web content of their website. Even a website owner with as little knowledge as working with a word processing application can understand and use a content management system. With PHP web programming language, integration of a versatile content management system with a website is possible. In fact, the most popular and versatile CMSs like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and many others were created using PHP. Therefore, if a business needs a CMS for its new or existing website, PHP can integrate it.

Data-Driven Dynamic Website Solution

Simple business websites will not do, and the days of static and flash-powered websites are long gone. Today, it is the age of colorful, interactive, data-driven, and dynamic websites, and PHP flourish in this domain, as well. PHP can deliver interactive, data-driven, dynamic website solutions. A server-side scripting is necessary to create dynamic, data-driven website, and PHP is entirely server-side scripting language. Using PHP, web developers can easily create incredibly dynamic web pages. An interactive and dynamic website indeed enchants web visitors, making them stay longer on the website. With visitors’ prolonged stay, the chances are more of them to be converted into business prospects.

Aside from these, many other remarkable aspects of PHP make it the most popular and excellent web development choice for businesses these days. For a potent web solution, businesses should certainly consult good PHP web development companies. These PHP web development companies will understand the business requirements and deliver outstanding web solution that will enable a business to prosper.
