 # Windows Phone Development Guide
-The `cordova` command-line utility is a high-level tool that allows
-you to build applications across several platforms at once. An older

-separate archives for each platform. Expand the platform you wish to
-target. The tools described here are typically available in the

-plugins, see Using Plugman to Manage Plugins. See Application Plugins

+file for more detailed directions.
+These tools allow you to create, build, and run apps.  For information
