Enjoy Windows 8 but feel like you could use some more apps? Chief Evangelist for Windows, Steve Guggenheimer has you covered. He has taken the opportunity to highlight a handful of apps that are heading for Windows 8. We're closely approaching this year's Build conference (which we're attending), but that hasn't stopped Redmond from building momentum in the desktop app store.
So what's on the horizon? We've got a nice little list here for you rounding all of it up:
edjing - A social DJ app with a community of 2.5 million registered members sharing mixed tracks. A variety of effects will be available to create the perfect tunes, utilising files from a personal library. It's noted the audio capabilities in Windows significantly reduced development time for the app to be produced. Available later this week.
Great British Chefs - The UK's leading award winning recipe website that is now available for Windows. The app brings in over 300 captured recipes from 28 of the UK's greatest chefs. The app is available today, head on over to the Windows Store and pick up a version.
Tesco Groceries - One of the UK's largest retailers has released an app for Windows 8, offering Click & Collect functionality. Working closely with Microsoft, the retail chain has been able to produce something special for the Modern UI, mixing in a fully featured check out and order system. You can download the Tesco app today.
Time Out - The International media group produces websites, magazines, travel guides and apps designed to be the essential guide to what's happening in cities around the world. Entering on Windows 8 with apps for Barcelona, London, Los Angeles, New York and Paris, consumers will be able to check out an interactive and stunning guide before and while traveling. You can download the Time Out app from the Windows Store today.
VEVO - Everyone knows VEVO. If you don't, it's a popular music video and entertainment platform, which has arrived on Windows 8. Over 75,000 HD music videos are available for users to check out and enjoy, as well as live concerts and original programming from artists all over the world. Snap view is supported, enabling users to watch through thousands of videos while browsing the web. Download VEVO from the Windows Store today.
Vyclone - The unique social video service has arrived with an app that offers friends and family to capture videos and bring them together for a single moment (Birthday, vacation, wedding, etc). Windows tablets can capture video in landscape mode, which joins other intuitive features to make the experience that more special. Download the Vyclone app from the Windows Store today.
Where's My Mickey? - We've covered Disney's attempt to pump life back into its IP, so here's Where's My Mickey for Windows 8. Coming soon to Windows Phone as well, the puzzle game will offer humorous animations. Coming soon across the Windows ecosystem. Stay tuned for more information.
There you have it, folks. Not a bad line-up if we do say so ourselves. Be sure to head on over to the Windows Blog to check out the full details and whatnot.
