Great Windows Apps
This is the app version of the website http://www.greatwindowsapps.com - an alternative Windows Store that filters out the garbage to empower users to discover great apps.
Windows 8 is beautiful. Microsoft have created an operating system designed for the future and it really looks great, particularly when you use it on modern, touch-driven hardware.
This great OS needs great apps. However Microsoft seems to think that it just needs an awful lot of apps.
Having said they expect 100,000 apps in the Windows Store within three months, Microsoft's goal is clearly quantity over quality; simply to be able to boast numbers that rival those of other platforms.

Ugly apps make Windows look ugly. Worthless apps make Windows feel worthless. It's neither of these things.
Our app provides a true alternative with the following features:
