Windows Blue to bring Phone Apps on Windows 8

Microsoft logoWe’ve already told you that Windows Blue is very likely to spawn updates for many other Microsoft products beside Windows, but it seems like the Redmond-based technology company has many more plans for the upcoming OS version.

According to a new job listing published by Microsoft and spotted by ZDNet, the software giant is looking for software developers that could port Windows Phone apps to Windows 8 and Windows RT.

Cross-platform app development is apparently a priority for Microsoft, with the upcoming Windows Blue very likely to bring major updates not only to the Windows platform, but also to Internet Explorer, SkyDrive, Windows Phone and Windows RT.

Windows Blue is expected to be released this summer and even though Microsoft remains completely tight-lipped on this subject, sources familiar with the matter have hinted that it may be even offered for free.
