Windows Phone 8 & Windows RT

  • Under Consideration

I know this has been addressed some on comments in other threads, but wanted to start a new one for updated info. I'd love to see a CE app for windows RT. I'm currently using the family safety feature on my MS surface, which works pretty well, but a CE app would be great.

Also, any chance of getting CE for WP8? with the move from the CE kernel to the NT kernel, I'm assuming that WP8 is different to develop for than past versions, it also seems that with the phone/tablet/desktop integration that Windows 8 has brought about that there could be potential for a "master" CE app. I know RT and WP8 don't have a ton of market share right now, but MS isn't going anywhere anytime soon and the lack of apps for these devices seems to be the biggest hole in CE's coverage right now. Thanks for what you do!

Still hoping that CE will release something for the Windows phone operating with 10.

just bought a surface pro and didn't realize CE won't work on it.  Very disappointed.

Hi Candiss, Thanks for writing. If it is, in fact, a Surface Pro it should have a full version of the Windows 10 operating system. As such, CE should work well. If it is a Surface (not pro), it has a stripped down version of the Win10 OS, and CE won't run. 

Have you tried installing yet?

Thank you for such a quick response Patrick! It is downloading now. Misunderstood what it wouldn't work on.
