At this point of time, it’s hard to tell how long it will take the Windows Store to make the virtuous cycle between consumers and developers in a full fledge. No doubt, Microsoft has a strong hardware. But it’s all with the third party developers to mold their online store to a prefect app ecosystem.
Most of the analysts who reviewed Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet voiced their criticism only on the dryness of apps in the Windows Store. There weren’t high quality apps but we can predict Microsoft is going to set that right.
We all know how typical consumers place Windows in their day to day life, they trust it too well. So it’s up to Microsoft to make constraints bond with the app environment, where bigger guys like App Store and Google Play roll the dices.
Now that more than 4 million people have upgraded their OSes to Windows 8, Twitter picked this nice time to announce that they are planning to do a dedicated Twitter app for the OS.
The company tweeted “Windows 8 needs a great Twitter app. So we’re building it. Looking forward to sharing it with you in the months ahead.”
Although Twitter had official apps for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Blackberry, they never had a native client for Windows PC platform. Since they are starting it from scratch, the app will probably get to Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 as well.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has confirmed that ESPN, Dropbox, Walt Disney, and Lego are making their apps for Windows 8. And for the developers, Paypal is readying their support so as to making transactions for Windows 8 apps.
