Migrating the Khan Academy Windows Phone app to Windows 8
In partnership with Joel Martinez, the creator of the Windows Phone Khan Academy app (4/5 stars with 100+ ratings, Top 10 most popular app in Education category), we have finished a step-by-step video-series that shows how to migrate a popular, real-world Windows Phone app to the Windows Store.
Khan Academy is a not-for-profit company whose mission is to change education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere. Khan Academy has over 5,000 videos (150MM+ views) on everything from Calculus to Communism and everything in-between. Note, both the Windows Phone and Windows Store Khan Academy apps are 3rd party Khan Academy apps and are not officially endorsed by Khan Academy.
