    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx is what you may want to read.
    Note that background processes are usually not called "console app"-s, that is just Symbian-specific naming habit (which is based on a mis-understanding). When searching for this topic, windows phone 8 background task/process/daemon/agent provides better results.

    Re: console apps on wp8

    When developing native code for WP8, usually you develop libraries. See the templates listed at the bottom of http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx - so it is more like the early-NDK development on Android if you are familiar with that.
    Some starting points for reading about native code topics: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr.../hh700360.aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx (if you are interested in porting, there are some words about it one level back).
