Bring pen and touch input to your Metro style apps with ink

A session at Microsoft BUILD 2011

Thursday 15th September, 2011

10:30am to 11:30am (PST)

Metro style apps are much better with ink! In Windows 8, you code your Metro style apps for touch, and get pen and mouse support for free. In addition, with the new Windows 8 API for ink, you can expand your app’s capability and support ink strokes with precise control over Pen width and color. Add ink notations to your app, build an electronic whiteboard for families, create an app for the next Picasso—all these are possible. Interacting with your computer is going to be easier than ever with ink-enabled Metro style apps in Windows 8!
