It’s that time of the month again! Microsoft is hard at work on applying the finishing touches on Windows 8.1 along with the built in Metro apps that are set to arrive with the new operating system.
But at the same time, it continues to refresh and enhance the current Metro apps for Windows 8 users.
The company has just released new updates for several of the default Windows 8 apps, as it continues to refine the Modern UI and the overall user experience for people that are making the switch to this brand new working environment.
Metro Weather, Sports and Travel are the three apps that have received new builds, and same goes for the Fresh Paint app in Windows 8.
A shiny new version of Fresh Paint is also set to arrive with Windows 8.1, bringing with it a much improved feature set and new options to create digital art.
For better or for worse (the latter most probably) updated release notes are not accompanying most of these apps, at least for the time being, but it can be expected that Microsoft is offering bug fixes and performance improvements on both Windows 8 and Windows RT.
These new versions are being delivered to users through the integrated Windows Store as of this writing, and to get them, simply launch the tool in Windows 8 and hit the updates section.
