Along with the rebranding of Windows Phone Marketplace to Windows Phone Store, Microsoft today announced number of improvements to Windows Phone Web Store. One of the main feature added was the new search experience powered by Bing.
The new Search box makes it easier to: â€¢Find apps even if you make spelling mistakes or typosâ€”for example, â€œFacebokâ€ instead of â€œFacebookâ€. â€¢Find similar apps more easily. For example, type â€œguitarâ€ and youâ€™ll see relevant apps even if they donâ€™t have â€œguitarâ€ in the title. â€¢Finds apps in same genre. Type â€œhealthâ€ to see apps related to dieting, exercise, and more.
The new online Windows Phone Store now adds some new browsing options to make finding apps even easier.
In the Store, for example, youâ€™ll now see Top Free and Top Paid. The renamed and improved New+Rising list is not only refreshed more frequently, but takes into consideration how quickly an app is being downloaded. A new addition to the lineupâ€”Best Ratedâ€”ranks apps based on customer ratings and actual usage patterns for a more nuanced picture of whatâ€™s great.
TheseÂ changes are coming to Windows Phone Store appÂ in our devices as well. Also as a result of the community feedback, Microsoft hasÂ decided to make racier apps a little less visible.
