APIs in this namespace are typically used for a Microsoft Silverlight app for Windows Phone. For most scenarios, similar APIs exist that can be used by a Windows Runtime app for Windows Phone, and if you use these APIs you can apply much of your code to a universal app. See:
- Windows.ApplicationModel.Contacts namespace (particularly ContactInformation class)
- Windows.ApplicationModel.Contacts.Provider namespace (particularly ContactPickerUI class)
There are some scenarios where you will need Windows.Phone.PersonalInformation API even when writing a Windows Runtime app. For example, see the Contact Picker app sample. For Windows Phone, the sample uses the Windows.Phone.PersonalInformation API to prepopulate the contact store for demonstration purposes.
