    is there a seach for finding apps in the app store


    I want to download an app for the simple game of yatzee, i notice there is like 600 game apps, instead of scrolling through all 600 apps, can i just type my yatzee search in somewhere and be guided to optional apps for the game?

    Yes. Open the Charms Bar select Search then Select Store and then use the search box.
