There were some points on Windows store & how it behaved during the launch & after Windows 10.Making Windows 10 universal was a bold move from Microsoft but now it seems to be a right step in the right direction.
The store has seen a huge growth with no. of unique visits & no. of app downloads.The no. of store visits was more than 3 billion. Some more universal Windows 10 apps are coming like Netflix, NPR, Pandora, Shazam, TuneIn Radio, Twitter, Uber, Wall Street Journal, 1-800-Flowers, and many more. Each day , new development is happening . More & more developers are being attracted towards Windows 10.
“These developers see the opportunity hundreds of millions of customers present – and we’re just getting started.”
The new Windows store has seen,
