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 %

  • 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
