Windows 8 is an operating system that brings some of the best features of tablets and desktops together. One of the coolest advances is the availability of Windows 8 apps in the Windows Store. The idea itself is not new, apps have been on smartphones, tablets, and laptops for years, but it is a newer addition to the world of Microsoft.
The Windows Store is not as laden with offerings as its Apple or Android counterparts, but the selection will surely continue to grow as developers tap into the potential of this new market. Even at this early stage, though, Microsoft users do have some great choices that can make computing simpler, easier, or just more fun. Many of the programs will be familiar to you, but now you can experience them in a new way: specially prepared for the new OS. Here’s our list of the top 15 apps on Windows 8 so far.
