Windows 8 developers can now make free Modern style promo websites

When a software creator or app development studio makes a Windows 8 or RT app, they are pretty much on their own in terms of promoting the app to the outside world, especially for non-Windows 8 users. Now a company called MarkedUp has come up with a way for app developers to quickly make a website that promotes their app to everyone else on the Internet that uses the Modern style effectively.

MarkedUp, which is also an analytics platform for Windows 8 and RT apps, has now launched what it calls MetroAppSite, and as you can see in the example above, it looks a lot better than Microsoft's own Windows Store website listings for apps. It even has an app screenshot carousel that looks like it is running inside a Microsoft Surface-like tablet.

MarkedUp added

MetroAppSite uses BootMetro and Twitter Bootstrap to give Windows Store developers an easy-to-modify, brandable template they can use to their own ends .... MetroAppSite’s CSS and design is fully responsive and touch-optimized out of the box. It looks great in full-sized web browsers and on mobile devices too!

MetroAppSite is free to use for both commercial and non-commercial products, under the Apache 2.0 open source license.
