vlc wp8A couple of weeks ago, the team at VLC released the VLC app designed for Microsoft’s Windows 8’s Metro UI. The app has been in development for quite a while now and we’re sure Windows 8 users are probably happy to finally get their hands on the app.

However back when VLC announced they would be developing the app, they also opened themselves up to the possibility that the app could be developed for Windows Phone as well, although recently they stated that the app would only arrive for Windows Phone 8.1, citing performance issues as one of the reasons.

Well if you’re wondering what the app might look like, one of the app’s developers, Thomas Nigro, recently took to Twitter and posted a screenshot of what the app would look like. He also confirms that the app will only be released once Windows Phone 8.1’s Store is opened, which is basically when the public version of Windows Phone 8.1 has been made available.

We’re not sure if this means the app will be made immediately available, or if it means that they will only release at a later date once Windows Phone 8.1 has been released, but either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information. Microsoft is expected to announce Windows Phone 8.1 at the BUILD conference which will be taking place next week from the 2nd-4th of April, so do check back with us then for the details.
