With Windows Phone Releasing Apps So Quickly, What Does This Mean For Windows 8?

about 340 new apps getting added every single day. This change happened rather quickly, with it taking only four months for the marketplace to double. Windows Phone is a solid OS, but it hasn’t been that popular. Windows 8, on the other hand, will instantly arrive on tons of PCs and tablets, making it a great platform for app developers. It should only be a matter of time before Windows 8 makes it way over to the 50,000 mark. Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if this happens within six months after its launch. So if apps are truly the key, I wouldn’t worry that much about Microsoft’s ability to catch up with high-quality releases based on their current track record. What I am curious about is what our readers feel Metro needs in order to better appeal to desktop and laptop users. There is no denying that tablets are a focus with Windows 8, but the desktop/laptop world isn’t dead yet, even if it is moving ever closer to its final retirement. If you are on the fence about using Metro in Windows 8, what would change your mind? For me, a higher powered browser is a start, an OpenOffice metro app because I’m cheap and don’t want to pay for MS Word, and perhaps an iTunes app would be great starters. There are more, but that would certainly be a step in the right direction. What would it take to win you over to using Metro more regularly? Conversely, are you already using Metro primarily, if so what apps have persuaded you to do so? Share your thoughts below.]]>
