Windows 8 apps store cracks 20,000, most of them free

    I wish they would download. I've got several that are pending and haven't downloaded. I've stopped them and tried to download them again and get the same thing. I've had one that did install.

    They may not all be perfect, and I assume there are some bad ones among the 20,000, but I'm rather liking the ones that I find. The Kindle book reader is working out well for me. And Hearts Deluxe is the nicest-looking game of hearts I've ever played.

    Sure makes it convenient when my young niece and nephew come over and want to play on my computer. They know enough about the concept of apps and app stores that all they have to do is look through the list, and click on something that looks interesting. Couldn't be more simple.

    I agree that it needs the big players here. 1) a real pintrest app (2) a real facebook app and (3) a tap a talk style tile would be great as well...

    LOL, glad you got it sorted firebird Murphy sucks that way
