Windows 8 is built around apps and Microsoft obviously knows that, so its efforts to get closer to developers and encourage them to create apps for the new platform are not at all surprising.
This struggle continues with a new video showcasing a “new world of apps,” as Microsoft calls it, which basically allows you to make the best of a Windows RT tablet with just one tap.
It’s “a worldwide app store with over 1 billion potential users,” Microsoft says in the video and “over the latest 2 years, more Windows licenses have been sold than Android, iOS and Macs combined.”
Of course, this has nothing to do with Windows 8 and its slow debut, as several sources familiar with the matter have hinted that Microsoft executives are a bit disappointed
with early sales of the new OS.
The company, on the other hand, has said that more than 40 million Windows 8 copies
had been sold in just one month.
