Windows Store: What’s new? A day in the life of the Windows Store

The most common request I’ve gotten so far is “what is new on the store?” The Windows Store app on Windows 8 shows you in general what’s been added, but doesn’t do much to break it down for you.

Though it can be a lot of information – the store is adding roughly 50 or more apps per day – some days far more, some days a bit less, I thought I’d share “A day in the life of the Windows Store”.

From my research, today, Sept. 19, 2012, there were 61 applications added in the US market. They are listed below. Yes, I know, there are several that have non-English titles. Yes, those are available for US English users. They are hidden by default, but can be viewed by going to the Settings charm in the App Store, and selecting Preferences, then turning off the option to “Make it  easier to find apps in my preferred language”.

  1. Great info. Thanks for sharing.
    How are you pulling this? I rarely see updates whenever I go to the “New” section.

  2. myScoreboard is an app in the sports category that you missed. Developer here.

  3. Thanks for the comment. I actually didn’t miss it, it just showed up in my statistics on the 18th (the day prior).

    For those who are interested, myScoreboard (x86|x64|arm) is available here:

  4. Hi Will – thanks. I’m not pulling this through Windows 8 or the store app at all. I gave up on that early as I couldn’t ever automate it and I was frustrated with the little insight it gave to the information. My info is largely pulled from the Web-based view of the store.

  5. Heh, thanks for listing my app. DOF Calculator is mine.

    Just as a sidenote: I’ve received a review putting the accuracy of it in question in comparison to some pretty prominent online version. I’m using actual sensor data instead of placeholder values per camera format. Hope people won’t make me feel like Don Quixote in that regard once Windows 8 launches properly and more reviews will be flying in. 😀

  6. Is there an easy way to check out the new apps for each day? I would love to drink from the Windows Store firehose tooo :))

  7. There isn’t yet – but I have an idea I’m working on. I’ll hopefully have something later this week.

  8. Thanks Mario – I’ll admit I hadn’t looked deeply (ahem) into the app itself. Looks interesting. Best of luck!
