I've been using windows 8 since its launch. I've seen a prominent growth in the number of Windows 8 store apps. Most of them lack quality and there’s actually a very few number of official apps showing up in the past few months. Companies like Facebook and Google didn't show any interest in building officials apps for the Windows 8 platform.  In the past weeks, we've seen Microsoft and Google feuding over the removal of YouTube app from the windows store because of some violation of their API’s.
