    Places to download free win8 apps?

    I know there is an unofficial windows 8 store "" for free win8 apps download. Any other places? Thanks!

    I think that is the only "collective" one. But, you can google for the individual ones. Just put "App" after whatever you seek :eg. Cut the rope app.

    Even within the official Windows store, some installer will direct you outside from winstore to the developers website. Be cautious about this. Some external websites have misleading links and installs a lot of crap in your PC which could slow down your PC sometimes.

    Correct me if I happen to be wrong, but their was a power shell way of installing apps for Windows 8, as I saw something about installing apps not in the Windows Store when the Skype developer preview circled around the web. I do not think their is enough consumer demand for something as unofficial Windows Store apps, seeing the real restrictions on the store seem to be low. Most apps in the Windows Store are free. I hope this helps!

I tried downloading various apps from the store, but the message I get was I can't install this app. For example, I tried to install PDF Reader 8, and I get error code 0x80070032. Does the error code reveal what the problem is? I am running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1, on the Lenovo IdeaPad.
