    Windows 8 operating system, as a successor of the popular Windows 7, brought a set of novelties, amongst which are the Windows Store apps. The new application architecture WinRT which forms the basis of Windows 8 and Windows RT operating systems, enables developers using C++, C# and VB languages the development of Windows Store data-driven and rich UI applications with the help of declarative XAML language. The development is enabled in an analogue way to developers of web applications who can use the combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Web developers can additionally use the new JavaScript library WinJS which among other features offers a set of rich, data-bound HTML controls and integration with Bing Maps and Windows Live services. As part of the thesis and with an integrated development environment Microsoft VS Express for Windows it is shown Windows Store applications prototype development, where the first one is based on development using C# and XAML and the other using HTML, CSS and JavaScript technologies. Compare the two approaches and comment on the findings.
