If there is one thing that the Windows Store needs, it is oodles and oodles of official apps. As in official clients to popular websites, services, businesses, institutions and organizations.
Third party apps are fine — and there are plenty of these for Windows 8.1 — but official ones are the real deal. Good news, then, that another official solution has found its way to the Windows Store. WTA, the Women’s Tennis Association have coded one up and released it for Microsoft’s platform.
Going by the rather illustrious name of WTA – The Official Windows Application, this app brings player profiles, photos, news, and rankings (along with a ranking history) plus detailed information about upcoming tournaments. In a delightful design, at that. The UI is slick.
Here is the brief and simple official description:
“The Official Windows App of the Women’s Tennis Association. Check out news, photos, stats, rankings and more for your favorite players.”
As you can imagine, this app is for fans through and through, and it shows in the beautiful and elegant design, wealth of information and gorgeous photos. Even social feeds are included.
And one of the most interesting features of this app is the versus mode that measures how two players rank up against each other in terms of matches, prize money, country, age, height and other such criteria. The free app is compatible with all Windows 8.1 devices, including ARM based ones.
