Two Browser Versions of Windows Store to Find Windows 8 Apps with Browser

Windows Store made for the Windows 8’s "Modern" UI apps (Metro apps) is getting bigger and bigger each day with new apps, however, unlike other similar app stores, for example, Play Store for Android, Windows Store has no option for browsing apps with a browser; you need Windows 8 to use the Store. But, now you can browse Store apps with your browser using services like MetroStore Scanner and Great Windows Apps portal.

MetroStore Scanner works the same way you do on your Windows 8. You can search or browse apps by category to find your favorite apps quickly. Also, you can filter apps by country or know whether a particular app works on your country.

 Moreover, by clicking the “details” button, you can go to the official Windows Store page and if you’re on your Windows 8, you can install the app right from there.

The “Great Windows Apps” portal is another similar service, but there is a difference. It is designed to assist you to find quality apps for your Windows 8 device.

The portal categorizes and filters apps hosted on the Windows Store based on several factors such as quality of app, design, level of information provided by the developer and users review.

The Windows Store offers an impressive amount of apps made for the "Modern" UI to download. Now there are over 21000 apps. All these apps are certified by Microsoft and can install on your Windows 8 or above devices. [Via –]
