The Windows 8 store app lists apps by category ("Spotlight", "Games", "Social", etc.). Is there any way to browse a complete list of apps in the windows 8 store?

You can do a wildcard search to browse them all in the store, this is kind of a workaround that I just stumbled on while messing around.

Edit: It looks like you can use a few different characters, for example:

*, # and %

Also, one thing I would like to add. You can use any special character like *, #, %. –  Zuck Nov 4 '12 at 17:28
Yup looks like your right, ill add it now. –  Taylor Gibb Nov 4 '12 at 17:31
Thanks! I see 6125 results, not 7386. Why are our app counts different? –  Matthew Nov 4 '12 at 17:43
