Islandwood 101: Microsoft gives Windows Bridge for iOS tutorials

The Microsoft Build developer conference is up, coming and a year beyond Build 2015. It was then that the company announced its efforts to close the Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile app gap with a development bridge between the above platforms and Android and iOS. What was called Project Astoria lies in stillwater, but sources signaled that Project Islandwood has turned up green lights.

Today, Microsoft published the first of several tutorials for “Building a Simple App with the Windows Bridge for iOS.”

The process involves both a Windows 10 PC running Visual Studio 2015 and the Bridge program (or a virtual machine which one can get from Microsoft) and a Mac OS X 10.11 machine with Xcode 7. The Bridge program is on GitHub.

This tutorial ticks how to build a to-do list app in Xcode, importing it to Visual Studio and then using the iOS bridge. It also troubleshoots unsupported iOS API calls.
