Photobucket® coming up with an app for Windows® 8
With an interface change in Windows 8, Microsoft is forcing the whole market to adapt to it. The latest company to jump on the bandwagon is Photobucket. Photobucket is currently developing an app for Windows 8.
The beta version of the Photobucket app was built in Visual Studio 11 with C# and XAML. Luke Swanson, VP of engineering at Photobucket, said that they were able to use only a minor part of the original code and had to write fresh code for developing this application.
This app is also developed for touch-based devices much like the platform for which it is built on, Windows 8. Photobucket already has apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry and this app will enable the users of Windows Phone and Window 8 to access them on their respective devices.
Swanson said that the Windows 8 platform offers them lot of advantages and hence they are developing this new app. He also praised the new Metro user interface of Windows 8. To know more about this, read the complete story here.
