There are mobile apps out there for just about anything you can think of. Whether you want a new way to send Tweets or a high-tech replacement for a whoopee cushion, you should have no trouble finding it for your smartphone. While Microsoft, Android and Apple have offered these apps for a long time, no one has ever brought them to your desktop computer - at least, not until Windows 8. We'd like to introduce you to the Windows Store, a feature of Windows 8 that allows you to choose from thousands of available apps to use on any of your Windows 8 devices.
To get started with the Windows Store, access your Start screen and click or tap the Store tile. The Windows store takes advantage of the new Windows 8 user interface, so you'll notice it takes up the full-screen and doesn't have the menus and links you might expect.
