Microsoft Store adds ‘private audience’ apps to its Store

Sean OConnor

It's a real-time WW2 game and needs as big a screen as possible, so I've actually been surprised how many people play it on a relatively tiny iPhone screen!

I think the problem with the Windows Store is it doesn't get much prominence hidden away in the Start menu thing for a start, and they only seem to give any prominence to big name titles. The AppStore used to let *every* new title appear in the 'new' section, until you'd be pushed off after a few days by the next batch of games, so as a small developer you'd at least get a shot of getting some coverage and then maybe spread by word of mouth. And if the Windows Store doesn't highlight new stuff that people might be interested in, what's the point of them going there for a browse?
