Adobe Photoshop Express storms to second of most popular free Windows 8 apps

The list of the top 10 most downloaded free Windows 8 apps on the Windows Store doesn't seem to change all that much. When we last looked at the list in April, Xbox Smart Glass was number one on the list and it remains on top of the current lineup of free Windows 8 apps.

However, there's a new challenger. The Adobe Adobe Photoshop Express app, which launched just a couple of weeks ago, is now in the number two slot right behind Xbox Smart Glass. It would appear that the Photoshop branding for this rather simple photo editing app means a lot, and we wonder if this will cause Adobe to speed up development of a full Photoshop app for Windows 8.

The current top 10 list of most popular free Windows 8 apps includes some old favorites (Skype, Google Search, Netflix) along with some new entries, including the third party Facebook app, Facebook Now in the number three spot.

The full top 10 list of most popular free Windows 8 apps is as follows:

1. Xbox SmartGlass
2. Adobe Photoshop Express
3. Facebook Now
4. Skype
5. Google Search
6. Pac Pac Man
7. Netflix
8. Microsoft Solitare Collection
9. YouTube Player/Downloader - MegaTube
10. Amazon
