Turn your WordPress blog into a Windows 8 app

I recently came across this service that will create a Windows Store app from your WordPress website. For free.  This can be a great chance to get more readers through this new distribution channel. You also might be able to get $100 for each of your WordPress sites.

  1. Go to http://ideapress.me/ and create your app.
  2. Register as an app developer (https://appdev.microsoft.com/StorePortals/en-us/Home/Index) for $49.
  3. Go to http://rj.cx/win8keepthecash to get your $100.
  4. …Profit.

So, you’ll have to sign up for a Windows Store developer account, but there’s a current promotion that pays $100 an app. So you can still come out ahead.

IdeaPress basically does the work for you to make a full-featured Windows 8 application for your WordPress site! No technical skills required, you just need to follow all the steps. At the end you can just generate the package to immediately upload in the Windows 8 store. It also gives the option to download the source code if you want to make further modifications. If you’re curious, it’s also open source so you can see how the template is generated.

I walked through this process myself for ryanjoy.com. It was very easy, though my blog could obviously benefit from more pictures in posts. http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/ryan-joy/e24ef253-e860-460d-b99c-5fe0f7b79d15
