Some of the apps don't load for me. For example, I'd like to install this app: http://apps.microsof...cf-849c10baf65a

If I click 'View in Windows Store' it just takes me to the main store page. It also doesn't find the app if I search for it within the Store. Is this because of geographical restrictions?


I actually just installed that. But from the Store directly.

Webradio snaps to the volume control and means I don't have to listen to radio in my browser anymore ;)

Free without ads (at the moment).



Thanx for this Neobond. But are there no Country stations? Or is there an actual way to search stations?

It looks it could be geographically restricted. It doesn't appear when I search the store.

No. It only has stations for Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands, unfortunately. :(

if you're on Windows 8 go into the app store and use the search button on the charms bar (that search button is universal for all metro apps) (as are most the other buttons on the charms bar)

I'm guessing they're rolling out more of the store to more markets/locations as they slowly start to add more apps into the mix from the way it sounds.

You still can't download additional tables for PFX2. Can "you"?


Yes you can. I purchased three new tables. They are great!

Return to the Games App during the 'wait'. The purchase has to be made there. At least that where I found it on my end. (I opened PFX2 within the Games app)
