Store

You use the Store app to access the online Windows Store and browse and purchase new Windows 8 apps for your Windows 8 PC. The main Store screen is divided into a number of app categories, including Spotlight, Games (see Figure 6), Social, Entertainment, Photo, Lifestyle, and Tools.

Figure 6. The main Store screen is organized into various categories, such as Games.

In each category, you have four choices:

• Click an app tile to see that app’s details.

• Click New Releases to see a list of the latest apps added to the category.

• Click Top Free to see a list of the most popular free apps in the category.

• Click the category name to see a complete list of the apps in the category. From there, you can filter the apps by price (for example, Free or Paid), and you can sort the apps (for example, by highest rating or by newest).

Clicking an app displays the app’s details, including its user rating, price, description and features, user reviews, permissions, and more.

Weather

The Weather app is a straightforward weather forecast program. When you first start the app, it might ask if it can use your location. If it’s your local forecast you’re after, click Allow and you’re pretty much done. You can also add other places to the Weather app:

1. Right-click the Weather app screen and then click Places. The Places screen appears.

2. Click Add (+). Weather prompts you to enter the city name.

3. Start typing the name of the city you want to add.

4. When you see the name of the city in the list that appears, click it. Weather adds the city to the Places screen.


Tip

To make a city the default (that is, the city that appears on the Weather app’s live tile and that appears first when you launch the Weather app), display the Places screen, right-click the city, and then click Set as Default. Alternatively, if you want to add a second Weather app tile to the Start screen, display Places, right-click the city, click Pin, and then click Pin to Start.
