Its only UNIVERSAL if it runs on ALL Devices.

Win 32/64 .exe = Windows PROGRAM - (To become known as Windows Desktop Program / App)

Win 8 App = METRO APP (TIFKAM) - dont worry there are only a hand full of these.

Windows 10 App = Windows 10 APP - (to be known as just Windows app when Windows 15 comes out)

Android App = Android APP

iOS APP = iOS APP

HTML 5 APP = UNIVERSAL APP (as should run on any system with an HTML 5 compatible browser)
