Description

Web technologies are rocking apps! Dramatic improvements have been packed into the WebView and we have extended the control to WWAWindows Store apps using JavaScript and HTMLs. This session will show you how one control can bring together web content through new navigation events, integration with sSmartsScreen filter, and downloading content in order to render it locally.
