Really this is good news for developers because now they don’t need to develop separate apps for Windows 10.by using this new move from Microsoft developers now can port apps from Android and from iOS to Windows 10.Developers have choice to do either simple port of the apps from Android/iOS or can add features provided by Windows platform by doing deeper work.
