Description

Contracts are agreements between Windows and your Metro style app that allow you to integrate Windows 8 features into your app. For example, Windows 8 lets users share content from one application to another by using the Share contract.
 
In this session, you'll learn how contracts work and how to implement the built-in contracts such as Search, Share, Settings, and More. With Contracts, you can help users get more out of your app, and in a way that is consistent and intuitive, and they will reward you by coming back to your app again and again.

    • Developer

      There needs to be a way for one app to expose a contract to another. If I write a image processing app, I should be able to expose an image processing contract that other apps image producers) can consume to process their images
