  1. It would be great to use it in Germany!

    I can't download the app in the german Microsoft Store...

    • Is there a way to draw the wireframe on paper, take a scan and load it into Ink to Code and generate the UWP or Android code.

          • Ink to ERD and UML

            Hi, could you please add Ink to ERD and UML functions? Or else add separate apps for this? This tool is based on front end design first. Those of us with database and object oriented design may actually start with more backend designs first. MS Whiteboard is easier to use in general so it would be nice to use the best of this and MS Whiteboard to create the ERD and UML functionalities (tools).

            • Line terminators

              I generated the UWP code since I use Xamarin.Forms. The lines were terminated in LF instead of CRLF. Please either terminate the lines in a standard Windows CRLF, or allow it to be a setting for *nix (LF) or Windows (CRLF) line terminators.

              • Generate Xamarin Forms layout - it's not much more effort than UWP XAML.

                There is a missing opportunity to improve Forms generation. There are plenty of tools and startups generating code for native iOS and Android but nothing for Forms.

                      It’s an interesting feature to consider. We have some ideas around how to generate project skeletons based on the UI generated files. We’ll post an update if this makes it into backlog planning.

                      In the meantime, if this is something you’re interested in, upvote this idea. It helps us get an understanding of what’s important to you!

                    • Be able to import XML from Android apps.

                      So i already have a code base with XML views in Android and it would be great to sketch up modifications and then export them back to android studio as their UI designer is painful especially in a session with users..

                        • Pages with Arrows

                          Instead of the top-level construct being a View, make it a Page. Then, allow arrows to be drawn from buttons on a page, which would code-gen a very basic stack nav.
