The success of Windows 8 and it’s metro interface is totally dependent on the apps that will be available in the new- reimagined version of Windows.
Since the introduction of Windows Store in the Consumer Preview, a lot of apps have been added to it. Release Preview was also launched with a bunch of new apps . There are some great apps currently present in the Store .
But here is a list of some Metro styled apps that I would definitely want to see in the Store right from the first day of Windows 8 launch.
- FACEBOOK App:- I want a Metro styled Facebook app for Windows 8. I know there are several apps now present in the market which do the same but I would like to have a Facebook app from Facebook which should also support chat within the same app.
- VLC Media Player App:- I had read somewhere a few days back that VLC won’t be making a metro styled app for Windows 8. Being my favourite video player , I would like to have a metro version of it. So that I don’t have to switch to the desktop everytime I have to play any video file(specially .flv files)
- CRICKET App:- I am from India, a cricket crazy nation. So I would surely want a proper Cricket app for Windows 8. The Sports app which was included in the release preview didn’t included cricket.
- NERO App:- I would also like to have the metro version of a disc utility software such as Nero. Nero has been a very famous disc burning utility over the years and I would like to see it rocking in Windows 8 too.
- AVAST Antivirus App:- I would also like to have a metro styled Avast antivirus app too. But Microsoft is actively discouraging Avast from making a metro version, which is at least for me, Very surprising.
So, these are the few apps that I want to see in Windows 8.
