New SDK for Windows 10 enables you to create jump lists with quick actions for universal apps
Yesterday Microsoft released the SDK Preview of Windows 10 Build 10563, which allows developers to integrate opportunities to interact with their applications using tiles in the start menu. We are talking about the introduction of a new API, through which you can create jump lists, which contains buttons for quick launch functions store apps.
Some apps already take advantage of this innovation. In particular, to test a new feature, you can use the app Tweetium in the latest insider build of Windows 10 (10565).
Updated development tools allow you to integrate the labels, leading to specific functions of the application directly to the jump list (context menu) tiles on the start screen. In the case of Tweetium is writing a new tweet. The menu is activated in two ways: by using the right mouse button or by long press with a subsequent tap on the ellipses (on touch devices).
Interestingly, this is also supported by Windows 10 Mobile, so in theory, the smartphones with the new mobile platform will be able to use the activation mode of the application features like 3D Touch from Apple even without the same touch technology.
