The First Public Sector Windows 8 application is here

It seems the first public sector application has been developed for the Windows Store.

The app is called Bay County Tax Collector and it’s made specifically for the Bay County, Florida tax office. The app is designed to let users search for property and real estate taxes in the Bay County, Florida area.

The app was made by a company called VisualGov Solutions which has done software development for other public sector organizations.

It’s an interesting category to watch and you can be sure that worldwide local, state and governement organizations will be watching closely to see how this goes.

If Metro (yup I said it) adds value, this may open a tidal wave of new apps in this category.

      Yeah I killed Disqus.

      I might apply it at some point but the SEO downside is way too great.

      The blog has 7700 comments. Disqus and Google do not seem to agree as far as SEO goes…
