The Windows Store was introduced last week, but the video demonstration released by Microsoft didn’t really let us have a good look at the store. Fortunately the folks over at Winunleaked.tk manage to get their hands on some screenshots, to show us a little bit more of how it looks like. We get a good look at how the installation and top apps screen look like and judging by the screenshots, the Metro UI is being used very well, making the store look appealing and apps easy to distinguish from one another.
However, I can’t help feel but there’s a bit too much empty white space which could be used more effectively. Then again, this could be an early version of the Store and not what it will look like next year. It was also reported that you can just simply use your Live ID to log onto the Windows Store as opposed to requiring an internal domain address in the past. The Windows 8 beta is said to be released in early 2012, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for that. In the meantime, stay tuned for more leaks and reports to surface.
