Microsoft shows off Windows 8 marketplace

Windows 8 StoreMicrosoft has given further details on how its app and games marketplace, called Windows Store, will work in the upcoming Windows 8 platform.

The tool is designed for downloading Windows 8 apps that use the Metro interface on tablets and PCs. Unlike Apple’s iTunes App Store, it does not handle mobile apps, as these are distributed for Microsoft OS-based handsets via the Windows Marketplace.

Windows Store, which is expected to arrive alongside the Windows 8 beta in late February, has been designed to put content in front of people rather than making them search for titles, according to Jonathan Wang, a program manager at Microsoft. “On the Store landing page, we will continually feature new and exciting content, changing frequently so that customers come to expect there’s always more to explore within the store. The landing page integrates featured content with navigational content — like categories and lists of featured apps,” Wang wrote in a blog post on Friday.
