Open installed apps from within the Windows 10 Mobile Store

After talking about how the Windows 10 Mobile Store now lists in-app purchases for apps which contain them, there's another cool little feature that's in there too.

Once you've installed a new app you can open it up right from the Store.

The Windows Phone 8.1 Store gives you an option to view your new install, but not to directly open it and go into the app. That's changing it seems with Windows 10 Mobile. A small, but welcomed feature, and is one of a number of refinements to Microsoft's app shopping experience.

The new Store is now the only store as of build 10166 and thankfully it's had a lot of work since the really early builds. It's still pretty buggy and crashes frequently, but it's perfectly usable. The bugs will get ironed out as we get closer to launch but it's getting better with each build, so it's going the right way, at least.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
