Reference: 
• http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn609832.aspx
How about using a Portable Class Library (PCL)? 
“This type of project has been improved in Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 and 
now, if we target Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1, we’ll be able to use all 
the common APIs. 
However, PCL produces a single binary that works as is in all the supported 
projects. Handling divergent APIs requires using higher-level abstractions, such 
as dependency injection or IoC containers. We can’t simply use conditional if to 
define platform specific code.” 
Reference:

1. Download & Install “Shared Project Reference Manager” from MSDN: 
• http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/315c13a7-2787-4f57-bdf7-adae6ed54450 
2. Add Project to Solution: 
3. Add Class Library for each platform (Win 8.1 & WP 8.1) 
4. Add Shared Project Reference to each Class Library.
