Where is The Build App?

31 Oct

Yesterday at the excellent keynote at Build, Steve Ballmer clarified the importance of building great apps for the Windows platform. To back it, Microsoft provided all attendees with a Surface – if we promised to develop lots of apps. With the keynote in mind I searched the Windows Store for the Build App – I couldn’t find it. Instead I tried the Build website (www.buildwindows.com) on my Surface. I quickly realized that some part of the website was built with touch in mind – but certainly not most of it.

So my question to Microsoft is pretty simple: Why haven’t you build an awesome Build app that would inspire developers to build great apps?

You have a really strong support in your knights (the MVPs) that most definitely would have built it for you.

UPDATE (2012-11-02):

The Build app is now available at the Windows Store.
