Creating complex UWP apps is possible (with high density UI)


I’ve read about Paul complaining that UWP is not making progress and can only be used to build “basic” apps.

As a UWP developer, I don’t understand that claim.

High density UI are possible. It is just a matter of sizing each button accordingly. For example:

That’s a sample app that looks like Visual Studio (with all the UI features like moving windows, docking, tabs, etc).

It works on Windows 10’s first build (1507).

And UWP keeps becoming more and more powerful for edge cases. For example, it is now possible to launch a UWP app from the command line. So, it is possible to build console applications with UWP.

So, I would like to hear some specific examples of technical features that UWP lacks and that is blocking mainstream UWP developers.
