Windows 8 beta was laid bare before the world by Microsoft on Monday. As already reported earlier the Windows 8 also includes an App Store. The App store will act as a repository of apps developed by various developers and users can then browse through the wide range of software available on the store. The Windows 8 store has a variety of categories of apps along with a cover page displaying list of feature apps.
According to Sinofsky:
It’s like ordering pizza. You know where your app is at all the steps along the way.
The store will feature two types of apps: the traditional Windows app currently in vogue and the Metro-type apps which will run on Windows 8’s tile-based touchscreen interface. The metro-style apps will only be available through the Windows 8 store. Microsoft seemed to have taken a cue from the Mac OS X Lion which was only made available through the Apple App Store.
Just as in the case of Apple’s App store, the apps on the Windows 8 store will also have to go through an approval process by Microsoft. Apple is very stringent in its approval process; let’s see how Microsoft goes about this process.
According to Microsoft, developers can submit both free and paid-for apps to the Windows 8 Store free of cost, whether they are traditional apps or Metro-style.
Take a look at the video below for a better understanding of Windows 8 store:
