This post is all about the top Windows 10 Apps in the Windows Apps Store. Windows Apps Store was added as part of the Windows 10 Update in 2015. This is very much similar to Google Play Store, iTunes App Store, Mac App Store. Traditionally so far, Windows applications were downloaded as a setup file and installed separately. But this new approach of Windows Apps Store will allow streamlining and reviewing apps submitted by users.
Using Windows Store
You can use Windows Apps Store either from the Store app installed in Windows or using the Web portal. You can choose Get App from the web version of Windows Store which will initiate the installation process.
The Windows Store has all the necessary filters to streamline apps according to your preference. The clean user interface will help you to have a good app experience.
Top Windows 10 Apps
In the last two years from 2015, Windows Apps Store has progressed to a considerable level. Developers around the world are updating their existing Windows softwares to Apps versions. I have listed couple of apps that seemed really good & useful.
The biggest players in social media have come up with their own version of Windows App. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many more.
Cloud Storage has become a great part of our digital lives for storage and remote access. Dropbox, Box, OneDrive by Microsoft are available for Windows Operating System.
Photo Editing is another important software category that a lot of young people both novice and professionals use on a daily basis. Personally I am a big fan on photo editors. I started my early tech life crawling in Photoshop and CorelDraw. Fotor and Adobe Photoshop Express are the most eye catching free photo editing apps in the Windows Store.
