I was quite surprised when the veil of secrecy over the Windows Phone 8 SDK was finally lifted and it was revealed that its API had in fact very little in common with the Windows 8 API. Windows 8 essentially provides two APIs for writing (Metro) apps. There’s the XAML API and then there’s Direct3D.... Great! I can write a native C++ app using Direct3D and by extension Direct2D. Direct2D is after all just a user-mode library built on top of Direct3D, but a very important one at that. It powers such notable apps as Internet Explorer on both Windows and Windows Phone. Then to my horror, I get to the bottom of this page and I see this...
You're not supposed to use Direct2D, but it does work... but you won't get into the Windows Store that way.
