MetroStore Scanner shows comprehensive list of Windows 8 apps – Web Store?


You may have visited Windows Store for Windows 8 in which you can see all the apps available for Windows 8 but, the Store only shows the apps which are available in your country/region. Now a third party developer has made a website showing apps available in Store from around the world. You can view the description of apps and download links are also provided.

Vlko a developer has developed a website which shows all the available apps in Store on the website. You can’t just view the apps in your country/region but, apps available in specific countries can also be seen.

The website has been named as MetroStore Scanner and the source code of this awesome app compilation technique is also available for everyone. The website looks more like a web store for Windows 8 apps.

MetroStore Scanner for Windows 8 apps can perform all the functions of a regular app store which can be seen on any web store like Google Play, Apple’s App Store etc. You can see the complete descriptions of apps, search for your desired ones, select from different filters, select from your country and sort them.

MetroStore Scanner is also updated regularly with new statistics from Windows Store apps globally, and the total number of apps is also showed.

You just have to press the app and the details of the app would open. You can view its complete descriptions, countries in which the app is available and the original download links are also present.

This online web store for Windows 8 apps is the first one of its kind and Microsoft should have followed the same for original Windows 8 Web Store but, unfortunately, there is no such thing for Windows 8 to view Windows 8 apps online.

This open source project is just awesome and would be very helpful for people who want to get updated with latest Windows 8 apps and app counts.
