Microsoft contains about 100,000 Windows Store apps as compared to more than 975,000 Android apps in the Google Play store as well as the estimated 850,000 iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch apps in Apple Store. With a more appealing perspective, Windows 8.1 is a better platform to boost Windows Store application development. Thus, it is expected that Windows 8.1 should increase Windows Store application. By offering better navigation in Windows 8.1, Microsoft has begun the preview of Windows 8.1.
One of the developers explained that Windows Store app development is done to a certain level. It is not very difficult but for programming it for tablets, you need to rewrite some of the code, some of the front end so as to make it work on the phone. In fact, many people are not looking forward to see Windows Store apps development. But, Microsoft is continuously making the application development process better for Windows Store.
Customers are not very much excited about the development of Windows Store apps but may be in future this development will become important.
