Microsoft Expands the Windows Store

Microsoft Expands the Windows Store

In February, Microsoft debuted a preview of its Windows Store for apps that will run on the Windows 8 Metro interface. Now, it’s expanding that preview, adding 33 more countries to bring the total to 38 countries. At the same time, the company is adding support for seven more languages and increasing the number of market-specific app catalogs from five to twenty-six.

Although the new app store is still a preview, Microsoft says the Windows App Store has seen millions of app downloads “by people in more than 200 markets.” Similar to other app stores, Microsoft takes a 30 percent cut of all sales (20 percent for apps with sales over $25,000).
