    With the new April 2014 (8.2? 8.1.1?) update, the Windows Store app now asks users (who haven't already done so) to add a payment method to their Microsoft account when they try to download an app, even if it's a free app - but hang in there! After canceling out of this three times (I think), the dialog stripe will change to a warning, with an "Ask me later" button.
