I stumbled on this GitHub project via the Windows Developer Show podcast - http://windowsdevelopershow.com/2013/11/episode-138-xplat/

The toolkit itself is really powerful - it's quick to get started but has a modular approach allowing lots of future changes and extensions - e.g. it lets you hook up local files or Azure Mobile Services for data and it provides complete Windows Phone, Windows Store and Android templates.
The github readme is a great resource to get started - it has links to heaps of intro docs and videos, it talks you through the extensible and modular code, and it's already been used to hook up lots of apps including lots of game guides, restaurant menus and more - take a look at some of them on http://pjdecarlo.com/2013/12/awesome-apps-for-windows-phone-and-windows-8-built-with-xpck.html.
The author of this package is Microsoft Evangelist - Paul DeCarlo - pjdecarlo - and he's also recently been touring and talking about how to use it. Take a look at his blog for lots of fab info - pjdecarlo.com
Paul, this is awesome stuff - love seeing people shipping, making tools and making money from apps that they've built for all users on all platforms - simply fabulous! Definitely badge of awesomeness winning too! Super work - thanks :)
