Take a peek at the clean, new look of the Windows 10 store

One of the many new parts to Windows 10 is the Store. In the latest Technical Preview we get a first look at the redesign. Functionally it's basically the same as the existing Windows 8.1 Store at the moment but with a substantial visual overhaul. Gone is the green and in its place comes flat gray tones.

It's still in beta – as is pretty much everything in Windows 10 right now – so anything and everything is still subject to change. But here's how it looks right now.

Windows 10 Store

Besides the new, more subtle gray look, the biggest thing you notice immediately is that the sideways scrolling is gone. It's all vertical, all the time in the new Store app, but at least how apps and games are grouped together remains largely familiar. There's now a large feature block front and center, with the charts, collections, suggested picks and so on all below.

Collections also get a nice visual upgrade, with a big, bright band traversing the width of the screen highlighting them now. When you're looking at a chart or a category, the options are now clearly displayed down the left hand side with a grid of icons to the right. And of course you can use it just as well in a window as you can in full screen.

There's definitely going to be more to come as we get closer to launch in both appearance and features, but for now gorge yourselves on the plethora of images we've got for you below.

  • Looks much better!
  • I just hope they add some color and don't leave it so bland with that grey.
  • I loved that gray :)
  • Yeah, that's fine, you can love the gray,but as with Windows 7 and 8, there are no options to the blue theme Windows foisted on its customers.... give us back a choice,please !!  You did with XP with which I personally loved and used the avocado color/theme, and then you took our choices away with the intro of Windows 7.   What's the point of that! What is absolutely hated by all your customers, Microsoft,...and listen up, Apple and Google: when you take away one's options, and this repeatedly happens it seems, you kill the spirit of all your enveavours, and leave a very bad taste in everyone's mouth. When first you offer options to your customers,you're making them happy because you've given them choices, but when you subsequently, take them away away, you destroy the goodwill you created. Is this rocket science?  Methinks it's a case of common courtesy.....it's also known as good customer service. Sorry MSZika,I know I'm ranting, but your small comment above triggered a response, and so now I'll shut up.
  • What do you mean? With Windows 7 you have even more possibilities. Check out http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-computer-colors.
  • Thanks for your comment! Yes, I knew about what you refer to,  but one is still stuck with the ugly blue background on the window itself (best checked out windows photo viewer) and blue side bar can be viewed on the Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization page itself (which you  directed me to), and on all menu bar/tool bars etc. .
    While the blue theme might appeal to some, perhaps  many......it is Microsoft's paternalistic nature, taking away the choices, everyone was comfortable with in Windows XP,  that I strongly object to, as do many others. With furtherance to your comment,  I disagree that changing the color of the border is in itself changing the theme.   If it's strictly dealing with the border,  its not dealing wholly with the theme and in many cases produces a 'clash' with the native blue Windows people continually  shove at us. Cheers! Jack
  • I actually like that gray :)
  • I think the grey looks gorgeous :)
  • That gray does look ugly Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Interestingly you can still get to the old store by tapping the 'Store' button in the Xbox app. Edit: In fact most OS shortcuts still link to the old one. Eg, finding an app to open an unknown file type.
  • yeah the old store is still there
  • Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit like Google Play Store now? :O
    *takes shelter*
  • Looks like ios
  • It also looks like the Mac App Store.   *also takes shelter*
  • There comes the fan boy :P :D
  • I agree, the gray is BLAND and BORING. Would need lush colours to make it look appealing. Please add colour and make it a beautiful experience. I prefer the current 8 version to this rubbish.
  • yeah. i love the grey, but they should also add accent colors, the one's chosen by the user, just like windows phone os. what i really loved about windows phone design is its monochrome colors with an accent color that emanates throughout all apps. i hope windows 10 continues this design principle.
  • I'm not sure if this would cause issues, but an option to make it theme color would be my preference. Especially since it's currently my theme color...
  • I agree. It definitely looks better, but it needs some color.
  • Current windows 10 presentation has shown multiple color theme choices .I guess the color scheme for store will be consistent with that. Personally i love that gray rather than typical microsoft blue or green
  • Add shades gray?
  • How about 50?
  • lol, comment of the day!
  • I dont like the back button only taking up an entire inch of of the app..
  • They need to stop the rogue app submissions. There are so many fake GTA Vs in the store. I told MS about one, and they sent ME a form to fill in . I wrote back to say "hey, its your own store, you clean your own f mess up. Its your customers who will be unhappy not buying the legit app" but the address was not emailable. Unlike the beautifully curated store on Apple. Microsoft need to massively up their game on this. Its a disgrace.
  • Apple have a mess too. If you search Skype or any popular app, there are about a hundred photo editing apps from a chinese developer. Its just more prominent on Windows because there are fewer apps so its more noticable.
  • i had a bad app my first ever win phone app lol they told me to leave bad comment to warn people and they reinbured me my money.  The app is no longer available.  I like that service.  Never seen that issue on a iphone, but my friends say it was common place for them.
  • Yeah it needs to be a little smaller, but I think it's probably relative to screen size.  for touch screens, it's a must to have it that big.
  • Yeh maybe, just have to see.
  • Idk, we manage to select the tiny fucking arrow to comment/reply to someone on this, non-landscaping pos.
  • It's ugly.... He green was so dynamic :( functional too...
  • I hope they change those desktop icons
  • They're changing more and more icons with each new build released. I'm sure they willl get to the rest of them soon.
  • I think he means the ones they've introduced in this last version. Did you get the chance to take a look at them?
  • Wish those desktop icons look more align with Metro UI like the ones in Settings/ Control Panel app. Making it flat and overly colurful doesn't jive with the rest of the UI imho.
  • Jeve, what is a plethora? - Three Amigo's
  • A Lot.
  • Would you say I have a plethora of piñatas?
  • Oh yeeess...I would say you have a plethora.
  • It's a funny one: technically plethora means an excess, but it's becoming synonymous with 'lots of'. Language changing, as it does.
  • And it is a Greek one btw from the word Πληθώρα (:
  • Sideways scrolling was weird anyway.
  • Yes, yes it was.
  • Yep, with the last update when you can view the taskbar even in metro apps in my PC resolution (1366*768) was impossible to move the scroll
  • I got some trouble with the resolution to. Got a 2560x1600 retina display. And because the enormous amounts of pixels to calculate. Some features are slowly and animations are buggy.
  • Sideways scrolling was/is great and is part of Metro/Modern. We seem to be sinking into a gray and boring abyss here! Unique, dynamic and beautiful seem to be disappearing!
  • Maybe. But I think the backlash against Microsoft spurred them on to do this.
  • Ms needs to keep touch and mouse input close. For, I expect BT and OTG support for phones, pronto. You hear that MS, you mother fuckers.
  • Swiping sideways on a touch screen is fine, but scrolling down with a scroll wheel to make the screen scroll sideways is non-intuitive. It's like when apple decided that the default scrolling behavior in OSX would suddenly be the opposite of what it was.
  • I agree with you here.
  • I like it it is more desktop friendly
  • Love it, can't wait to see the windows phone version
  • Unless it is also vertical, abandons panoramas in lieu of the infamous hamburger menus, and ends yup looking like another iOS
  • The two are completely unrelated. Panoramas are for multiple primary screens. Hamburgers are for hiding links to less primary pages. The one flaw with panoramas was that it didn't leave many options for links to things like settings, without over promoting them into primary screen positions.
  • Umm... Three dot menu, especially since it is available from the bottom, instead of an awkward place in upper left but not very top of the screen
  • The 3 dot menu's great for things like in messages to hide the delete thread button, or internet explorer for its options. But then in situations where you start to go over 10 items its not so great because you cant have icons and your scrolling more. e.g. Facebooks menu can be quite long. Sometimes the three dots can deprioritise things a little to much as well. I think theres definetly a place for both of them. Particularly when you comsider options on the bottom bar and three dot menu usually are for the context of whats on the screen. Delete thread means delete the thread your on. Whereas the hamburger is normally the same menu on ever screen and acts as a link to another page. 
  • Yes exactly
  • My daughter was trying to compare her iPhone 4s with the parallax scrolling on our start screens, it was impossible to break through.. Then I saw her toking on hashish, hence, I understood her confusion.
  • Do you only see standard Windows apps, or also apps that were originally designed for Windows Phone?
  • Right now you see only what's in the Windows Store.
  • You will only see apps for your region and that are applicable to your device. So no phone apps in the store when on a computer.
  • That's too bad. I was really hoping MS found a way to let phone apps run in full Windows. There are many apps available for phone but not tablet
  • That looks amazing.
  • Thank you, I spent alot of time and effort at the expense of my marriage.
  • Is great fireeeee Windows in the world
  • Looking very good so far. Many new small visual updates in this new build at the desktop and I'm really happy to see vertical scrolling now in the Store. Very good!
  • And I'm just starting getting used to the sideways scrolling and liking it...
  • Same. All of the things that are changing most people have adapted to by now. Not sure how to react yet. Guess I'll have to wait and see when it is officially released.
  • People want change. And yet they also don't want change. Can't have it both ways, sadly.
  • I never liked the side scrolling on my laptop, because there was no mouse wheel, but when I tried it on a desktop, I loved it. However, I love this new design even more.
  • Agreed. Either they should accept what is there, or quit whining and just move on to something they will like. But its the Internet...sadly it wont work that way.
  • Spoken like a true sheep; never critical, always complacent.
  • "Baahh baaaa bah baaa"...... that means go fuck yourself in my "sheep" language.
  • That there is some funny shit.
  • Assuming you were replying to me that is. Its hard telling who's replying to who on these forums.
  • I never understood the aversion to side scrolling. Maybe it was just me, but i never had any issues adapting to it... I thought it worked well considering the side scrolling of the start menu.
  • Already I prefer the vertical scrolling on desktop because it's just more natural feeling to me with a mouse and a scroll wheel. However...I'm not so sure I'll be as happy with my Surface.
  • It does make more sense to scroll vertically on desktop, especially with mousewheel. However I kinda like the sidecrolling on tablet, even if it feels weird at first. That also seems to make sense on widescreen. It always feels to me like I'm scrolling inside a letterbox when there is little vertical space.  
  • I would say vertical scrolling for portrait mode, and horizontal scrolling for landscape mode would greatly fix that issue. Or just have a toggle somewhere where you can choose either or.
  • Switching depending on position would likely be horribly confusing; a toggle to choose your preference would be great, though!
  • I just noticed that you can still sideway scroll but with arrows that appear when you hover the mouse over the categories.
  • How about the store for Windows 10 for phones? :P
  • Wait until February xD
  • Just imagine the store is shrinked and add a hamburger menu icon
  • Exactly!! Everything for phone will be like this: Shrinked with a hamburger menu.
  • You don't have to use your imagination. Just shrink the Store window to its minimum allowed size and voila you have the phone experience. 
  • Right, because everything is a Universal app in Windows now.
  • What about phone apps on desktop?
  • Universal apps with tailored UI for desktop size
  • Exactly, not sure what's Su hatred to get... There is no, or will no longer be a phone app on PC, or PC app on phone, it's just an universal app scaled to whatever res device you have,@SaikrishnaM go play AgeOEmpire:CastleSeige on a pC and WP for an example (probably a bad example since I'm still having loading issues on my Win 10 preview...)
  • Much more professional looking.
  • It looks slightly similar to the Ubuntu Software Centre. Just so slightly. ;)
  • So slightly, you mean it is so slightly that it almost look like ubuntu's?
  • Not really, but the app details page and placement of the navigation tabs (below the back button) feels similar to the app details from Software Centre (last time I used one was I think Natty) Add a little hint of shadows and it could look more similar to the Zune PC Software
  • Looks a little bit like the Mac App Store too. Ah I'm not complaining, you know what they say! If you can't beat them, take what they haven't patented, bend it to your advantage, and then proceed to beat them senseless with it!
  • Yeah! Just like a Trojan horse xD
  • Does a Trojan knows what a patent is? :p lol
  • It does indeed remind me of the Ubuntu software centre..
  • It actually looks more like the Zune desktop music player.  Almost completely identical.  Zune started the beautiful of metro, and i'm really glad the Store looks like it now :D
  • I hope the store's search algorithm has been improved also. I'm completely aware GTA:SA is in the store, but if I search for it using the search bar at the top right corner, It won't pull it up, no matter what.
     
  • It pulls it up for me, and I'm still on build 9879 right now (The new build isn't done downloading for met yet, 87% done).
  • @Nicholas, that's all the confirmation I need. I was actually using the search on Windows 8.1. @Arsonist, I'm in the U.S :-\
  • Maybe it isn't available in your region?
  • Wait, an app store? We don't need an appstore "we have no apps". Eat on a big black one mwahahahahaha Windows 10 will shut up the fruit markets and the aliens.
  • I always though of androids as robots.. But I guess aliens can also work
  • I think he was referring to Alienware :)
  • Holy shit Microsoft is ranking Windows to a whole new level 0,o...
  • Loving this new look. Great job Microsoft.
  • Well done Microssoft... :) Eagerly waiting for W10 for phones :)
  • Im not able to use the store in the new 9926 build It's very slow and crashes imedeately. It shows 11 app to upgrade but (store beta included) im not able to upgrade them, and the icons are all black. any fixes?
  • Persevere. I had the same troubles but in the end I managed to get them to download. Once the Store updates itself it should start working.
  • i cant get it to update any apps and the hamburger button doesnt show for the store beta. is there a way to force check for a store update?
  • In settings > update and recovery > preview builds > toggle fast/slow update and check for updates normally helps me if I can't get a new build patch
  • Honestly, I thought horizontal scroll on things like the Start Screen and the Store were good changes from the other OSes, but I am glad to see the return of the vertical scroll. Horizontal scroll still works well in some apps.
  • Not in the WC app for Windows 8.1 :)
  • I don't like the colors..
  • Submit insider the feedback to have options! Night and day mode! Let the change of your PC theme affect the color of the store! Feed the feedback Insider!!!! :-)
  • It's a theme colour, just like the Xbox app and Office.
  • Wow!
  • I think it is grey because of the theme in currently
  • lol! Yeah! What theme was being used on the Computer the screen snapshots were taken from? If it's the theme than everyone who doesn't like gray is just criticizing this editors theme lol!! and saying the theme looks very Google Play / iTunes / Ubuntu (o, kind of miss Ubuntu - messed with it back in the days of Vista).
  • iTunes?
  • I thought the same thing... ITunes plus Ubuntu store, it's funny, b but the aim is to make touch devices more user friendly with the continuum feature, plus Windows 10 is built from user feedback Su I'm not surprised to see more of the best of all worlds coming to Windows 10
  • Zune.  Go look at the beautiful Zune desktop GUI... it's just like it :)
  • Looks nothing like iTunes, except for maybe the theme color, but that's about it. I'm sure in the final build or future releases you'll be able to change that
  • They better show the date when an app has last been updated or it will suck as much as it does now! This is a crucial piece of information that helps me decide which app to download.
  • Agreed
  • Good point, have you sent that feedback in as yet? I'll " Me too" it
  • I'll send it in tomorrow, I'll give you a link then. Or maybe someone who has installed the preview and can see the new store (is it in the preview?) can tell if it shows the update date.
  • Cool bnz, was gonna just search through the feedback app to I find it, Bt that'll work
  • UI is hideous 
  • Not sure that's Technically correct (I may be wrong...) but the UI would indicate problems navigating for example.. If you mean it's not visually appealing to you, then that's different... Is it that you don't like the colors? The new layout? Have you submitted your feedback?
  • Am I the only one who thinks their new interface(s) kind of resemble the Zune GUI?
  • I'm glad i wasn't the only one that thought this!!  I still use the Zune desktop music player daily and this looks A LOT like it.  LOVE IT :D
  • First thought is l don't like it and it looks like the apple store
  • Wrong, it looks more like Zune desktop GUI (which is a good thing!)
  • Only the colors make it look like the iTunes store. The actual layout is nowhere close to it.
  • Why did they use grey? Looks like the apple store :-\
  • I think this is the light theme. We'll get a dark theme something like the Xbox app.
  • Man, don't be one of those people that always has to find something to complain about. It's an improvement! if you want them to change it, leave a suggestion with the app.
  • +1520
  • Wrong, he is entitled to comment his view here, unless you feel your more important than everyone else. Also he is right, that gray is horrendously ugly and bland.
  • Horizontal works well with 16:9 tablets / touch screen other than it is a pain. Vertical scrolling works for desktop users, certain tablets and essentially all smartphones. So can understand the shift, especially since it is a universal app. However I doubt vertical scrolling would fit into the x1 ux as everything is displayed horizontally.
  • But most displays are horizontal and vertical scrolling is still better.
  • If they seriously hope to compete with Steam by bringing Xbox games to Windows 10 (e.g. the upcoming Fable Legends), then they need to have a separate, Xbox-only store, preferably inside the Xbox app, otherwise PC gamers will scoff and largely ignore it, like they unfortunately did with Project Spark in the Windows 8.1 store.
  • I have a feeling that project spark will benefit great from win10 coip. Lets wait and see what MS does, we are all testers and our feedback is gold for MS.
  • Much much better
  • The question is...will it start up the first time you click or touch the icon, or is it going to 5 dot across the screen until you give up and end it? I can't tell you how many times the store and other metro apps have done that to me.
  • While it does look good,I hope they really worked on the damnable store search.
  • Horizontal scrolling was the biggest problem with Windows 8
  • Agree
  • no , it is not.
  • Yes and no. It really all depends on the device, and the orientation it was in. Now if it was a 20+" device in landscape mode then it would be a major pain in the ass. But a little 7" tablet in portrait mode was actually pretty easy to do so with. Maybe in Windows 10 they could have a toggle to choose how you want to scroll through the Modern UI. Its all about options, not killing off something entirely just because somebody hates it. It doesn't make it fair to those that do like it.
  • Agree, for tablets and phones pivot is better and easier to use.
  • I think the new Windows 10 Tech Preview Update is cool & full of colour, alot quicker more responsive. Took 90mins to Download, Install Restart & Apply Settings. But it's well worth it a completely new look.
  • Are they telling us - NO MORE PIVOTS?
  • Depends on scenario I think.. Pivots may not be universally applicable as they are better suited to smaller screens. But a cousin of pivots are the tab-like headings for each category.
  • They're moving away from pivots, eadier to code/ port apps from/ to other OS I believe.
  • On PCs, pivots isn't good....
  • On tablets pivots are better and easier to use though.
  • I think on the phones the pivots will still alive. Just redesigned, like more modern header style. :)
  • Actually there is pivots, just not in giant fonts anymore.  The text in ALL CAPS at the top are the pivots (just like when you open the OneDrive app on Windows Phone currently).
  • It's still in beta, in the final release it may show it's True colours lol
  • Why grey???? Dafaqqq.... I loved windows for the color schemes it offered before
  • You and me. This example is so not Metro.
  • Lookin sick
  • I want colors
  • +1000000000000000000000000
  • I like the new design BUT...doesn't it resemble iTunes a bit too much? That's the first impression I got of it.
  • Not at all.  If you look carefully at the styling, it's a lot like the Zune player for desktop but with slick grey instead of orange/pink.  I like it a lot.  It gives Windows a more sophisticated look.
  • @thaman04 do you own a Zune? Or do you want to discredit the idea that iTunes was a source of inspiration for w10 store? I say this because I see you giving the same reply to all those who say: it's looks like iTunes.
  • I don't know about him, but I do have a Zune. And yes, it does kinda resemble the Zune software if you look closely, but I would've never made the connection myself. It's like when they point out something you didn't notice and then you can't unsee it. Still, I would've preferred the Zune colors over silver.
  • Looks like itunes store due to the theme color. Lol
  • I'll go curl up in a corner and cry.
  • Dont forget to bring the tissues to wipe your tears up afterward
  • I'm gonna need a whole lot of them.
  • Looks real nice so far. Now give me the a look at the new games hub was hoping for more in 8.1 but really looking forward to what we get in win10.
  • Great job with it. So much better. The grey helps the apps stand out more. Makes a lot more sense to be vertical scrolling as well. 
  • I agree. Sometimes simplicity is the key to great design. A lot of people dont realize that. Just making it shiny and throwing glitter all over the damn thing can really complicate it sometimes.
  • I think this is rubbish. A gray, boring and bland experience that looks like the Google Store. If Microsoft want to attract Android fans to Windows Phone they need to make it better, not the same! imho.
  • They could always give people the option to change the theme color of the Store as well. Plus this is still in development too. Things can always change, and most likely they will.
  • Does it have any phone apps in the store
  • Wow about time i remember the store was a complete mess
  • Finally
  • I remem​ber a grey lumia 920 that was limited release. Who has that? I want my 1520 to get that tone.
  • That was slick
  • I like it. I takes a little from the current Xbox Music design. I just hope that they fix the search feature that hasn't worked since Windows 8 launched.
  • I actually think it takes a lot from the Zune player for desktop :D
  • I like it.
  • so much spoiler.  wait til i install mine
  • What the heck? It looks like iTunes...
  • Thank you Microsoft for getting rid of the sideways scrolling!
  • WOW!  Looks very slick!   Does anyone notice it looks a lot like Zune? :D
  • Good thing it's a beta because it's pretty bland.
  • Gray reminds me of apple products. So not a fan. But I love everything Microsoft so im sure ill eventually love it lol
  • They still haven't added a part where you can buy a phone, tablet, PC, laptop and other electronic devices like Google and Apple did.
  • Desktop/tablet versions getting prettier, phone version uglier..
  • Looks like iTunes. damn it MS why you abandon METRO !?! WHY !?!
  • This is great!
  • Looks really rough IMO. They have a lot of work to do on all these apps for Windows 10.
  • I feel so left out.:o( I have the latest Tech Preview that came out today but I still have the old style store. Why, why, why. :oP  
  • Never mind, found it.
  • Scrolling vertically is much better.
  • That dead space next to the back button is quite unsightly. Other than that it looks... Meh.
  • That's better, but please no Android support....
  • Zune store?
  • problem in the app... it says installed app owned & install option inside
  • Put that in the Windows Feedback app, not on here. Microsoft is more likely to acknowledge the issue on there
  • ^What he said. The whole purpose of being a Windows Insider is to feedback to Microsoft so it can be made better.
  • The only gripe I have against Windows Store is that how many apps are stuck in Pending state without downloading even when I'm on the fastest connection that I can get. I cannot use many apps because they don't download at all.
  • Just installed on my Ativ Tab 3. took about 6 hours....
  • Not visually appealing enough.. No microsoft colors( because of which the windows 8 OS became famous ) arent there.. :(
  • Don't you think back button should be universally present in title bar on system level like this People app?http://imgreserve.com/?p=492414
  • I still can't see a point in the store for "last updated". This is pretty important to me, because you can see if the App is supported or not. In WP it's there, but not in Windows :/
  • I'm sure they'll put it in there. If they put it on Windows 10 for Phones, it'll be on desktops as well
  • Love this
  • Wow look modern not windows 7 1970s
  • This is what I always wanted the store to look like. Hope file explorer will also get a visual overhaul like this.
  • Sideway scrolling was the worst idea . Hope all apps starts using vertical scrolling. Yes MS needs to add some color like in the new calculator app and other places
  • The UI looks like the website UI of windows store.
  • For the people using Windows 10 rn. Is it safe?
  • To me its look like MAC OS IDK why
  • So much class..Hope they find a better way to implement that "Back" button though. Don't want a huge stripe of nothingness staring at me taking up content space.
  • And we were thinking Windows 8 was awesome lol
  • This is coming for the phone version too, right?
  • Horizontal scroll was a part of the metro design. *Sigh* silently Microsoft is killing it's own unique design concept...Maybe in near future Apple/Google will copy that and people will say: "Wow! That's so cool!"
  • They should provide themes options something like they did in outlook.
  • I'm getting error when downloading something from new store beta. As soon as I press install error comes up :/
  • Excellent and cant wait! Looks so much better then the windows 8.1 store
  • Looks like a really nice improvement over what we had before.
  • Windows 10 should be released for tablets with windows rt, because the architecture is the same as mobile phones with windows phone 8 (to be updated). Updating windows rt, so it would be a small adjustment of cellular version that would require much effort on the part of Microsoft and would increase the user base of the new system.

  • It's good but is tooooooooooooooo much unstable and takes tooooooooooooooo long to load! Once it's minimized, it starts from the first step (i.e. to show the loading dots screen)!! Needs a lot of improvements. For the time being, I'm using the old green Store app. :)
  • I'm loving it, looks much better. MS doing good work.
  • I can't find in this new store where to force check for app updates like you could in the old one, is it totally gone or just really well hidden?
  • Although I think it looks better now, I cannot help but spot Apple's App Store and Google Play Store design similarities here and there.
  • Loving that Google inspired taskbar. I'm so glad to see that Microsoft has given up trying to do its own thing and will just give us Android/chrome Windows.
  • I would be pretty happy if windows 10 for phones looked like this as well. I like it. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • have not installed the beta as i do not have a free test rig at the moment. 1anyone checked if it is possible now to delete apps from your history now? this has been bugging me no end and caused me to not test any apps after a while and leave the shop completely for over half a year now. i want a history where i can keep the apps that i found good so i can reinstall them easily not a non-configurable garbage dump of all the failiurs.
  • omg look at all that wasted flat space
  • Although I like the new visuals in WIn10 for the most, I hate it they're slowly moving away from certain design style rules of Metro/MUI. Especially the apps suspiciously start to look like Android/iStuff apps, which I don't think is a good thing. Win/WP8 has it's own distinct style, and it's slowly seems to fade away. As with some of the UI features, like certain swipes and such.
  • The focus model is ruined. Why is there an accent bar under every item in the task bar instead of just the active one? Why do I have to squint carefully to tell which window is active? Give us back our colors!
