The Microsoft Store application for Windows Phone was just updated to version 2.3. The change log describes improved customer experience in the catalog, but we're having a hard time agreeing. It’s still a little slow and confusing to use. For example, there’s no category for phones. You also need to use search to find Nokia Lumia devices.
The new version 2.3 now also displays ratings and reviews for products, as well as letting you add shortcuts to your favorite categories.
What we like about the Microsoft Store app is that you can see what's going on at your local store. If you want to attend an event at your local store, you can use the app to view a schedule of what's happening there in the next few weeks. It looks like my local store is giving demonstrations of the Xbox One almost every day.
You can also use the app to shop online for products available through the Microsoft Store. While we’re glad Microsoft keeps improving their Store app, we think it needs a lot more work.
