Windows 8 Convertible PCs Proliferate as Windows Store Apps Blossom
Microsoft says Windows 8 was designed for work and play, for today and into the future. As OEMs have produced a new class of PCs, tablets and all-in-ones with new touch-screen features that deliver entertainment and productivity, the possibilities for new apps have begun to unfold. Since the opening of the Windows Store at the launch of Windows 8, the number of apps available has more than quadrupled. Along with major brands such as CNN, Audible, Hulu Plus and Netflix, the Windows Store now features many top games and other entertainment apps such as Angry Birds Space and Music Maker Jam. The ability of Windows 8 to work across devices is making content more portable, so people can get what they want on whatever device they're using. With more apps being introduced every day, Microsoft News Center has launched a new "App of the Week" series to take a look at some of the latest and greatest. eWEEK looks at some recent hit apps, and some of the best hardware to play (and work) with them.
