    Where'd the apps go?


    I just upgraded from Developer Win 8 to Consumer Edition on my Samsung Slate and All the apps are gone. I went out to the store, thinking maybe the beta didn't have those apps by default, but I can't even find a paid version of the Piano app. I can't remember all the apps that were included, but when I search for piano in the store, I only get the Biological Piano result. Where did they go and how do I get them back? Do I have to clean it all off and dual partition so I can still have them? Seems a bit lame. And has anyone tried typing on the tablet keyboard? I constantly get doubled words, international characters, etc. I have to slow down in order to type. Doesn't seem very practical.

    CP removes the Metro-Apps from DP - afaik there is no way to obtain the DP apps in CP - untill it will be offered in store.

    Note: I was experimenting with this issue today. The problem is: You can do dirthy tricks to copy the files from DP - but the apps won't be signed in a right way, so they will not run. And I haven't managed it to sign them in a proper way.
