Windows Store

Contributor(s): Colin Steele

Windows Store is the online marketplace for Windows 8 and Windows RT users to purchase and download apps.

Microsoft announced the Windows Store in September 2011 and opened the marketplace in February 2012. As of October 2012, the Windows Store contained about 3,600 apps.

The Windows Store does not sell apps for the Windows Phone platform. Those apps are available through the Windows Phone Store.
