The Windows Store

Microsoft's answer to Apple’s App Store provides users with free software (for now) that can be transfered to other devices like phones running Windows Phone 7.  The Windows Store takes on a Metro-inspired design with its clean UI which arranges categories and subsections for quicker navigation and download. Speaking of which, it also offers trail versions of apps. All that’s needed is a Windows Live Messenger or Microsoft ID account to access the online service. Though unavaiable at the moment, we're curious to see how dope its Metro-compatible apps are once the company releases the full version of Windows 8 later this year.
