Pierre Henri Kuate is the latest winner in Microsoft’s Windows 8 app development competition for his app called PressPlay Video.

Kuate won an Xbox 360 for the app.

PressPlay Video is a media player providing the best experience for playing local video files (including MKV and FLV).

PressPlay Video supports advanced touch, mouse and keyboard controls, and comes with an integrated explorer which displays the folders inside your libraries, removable devices, HomeGroup and media servers.

Kuate’s next step is to build a similar app for music, movies and series under the PressPlay umbrella.

“I had a lot of app ideas, and chose the most interesting and useful one to build. My thinking is simple: build a great free app and then monetise it,” said Kuate.

“The Windows Store is a good opportunity for any developer with an entrepreneurial spirit. All it takes is a great and unique idea to be competitive at a worldwide scale.”
