Windows 8 Store–Not Very Efficient

December 31, 2012 3 comments

After trying for over a week to get Windows 8 to work effectively with my Dell XPS 17” Touch Screen Laptop I was finally able to do so, unfortunately I had to wipe off all of my software and do a total clean installation. I decided to just move on and go to the Microsoft windows 8 app store and to my surprise (Not really, Microsoft always does that kind of stuff) the store experience is confusing, not effective and wasteful, but the one thing that I could just not believe was the total lack of feedback to the user if an app was already installed, instead of getting a quick visual cue at the top level I had to drill down to find out the app was already installed. Seriously! add a small badged to the already installed apps please after a couple of days and weeks most users could forget exactly what they have already installed. Smile

 

Notice how at the top 2 levels it does not indicates that the app is installed, is not until the 3rd last level that the user finds out the app is already installed.
