Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting more applications in the Windows Store, part of Up and Running with Windows 8.
The applications that are included with Windows 8 will probably get you started …off pretty well, giving you access to most of the features you're likely to use …on a regular basis. And of course you can install additional …applications that you already have. And perhaps you've even upgraded an …existing computer, so you have applications already available to you in …Windows 8. But before too long you're probably going …to find that you'd like to add additional applications into Windows 8 and let's …take a look at an example of that. I'd like, for example, to add a clock …application so that I can have a live tile on the start screen that features a clock.…
So we'll start off by going into the Windows Store. …I'll click on the tile for the store and that will, of course, bring up the …Windows Store application. You'll see there are a variety of …sections here that are available. We have the Spotlight section, some …applications and options that are being highlighted by the Windows Store. …
