Chapter 4. TileWorld’s Starter Apps

The Windows Store is meant to be the TileWorld Mall of America. That’s where you’ll find the real gems: thousands of apps that work great on tablets and touchscreens of every ilk. The basics are all there—Netflix, Skype, New York Times, Wikipedia, Evernote, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja—and the catalog grows all the time.

In the meantime, though, Microsoft starts you out with about 20 TileWorld apps of its own. Here they are: miniature missing manuals for each one. (They’re listed here alphabetically, since their specific order on your screen might be different.)

Note

The Bing and Messaging apps are no longer part of Windows 8.1. Bing is now built into Search, and Messaging has been replaced by Skype.
