Microsoft plugs new business themed Windows 8 apps

With the launch of Windows 8 in late October, the number of apps made especially for Microsoft's latest OS continues to grow. Today, Microsoft put the spotlight on a number of major businesses that have launched new Windows 8 apps to distribute their products to other business customers and consumers.

In a new post on the official Windows for Business blog, Microsoft goes over some of these new B2B Windows 8 apps. One of them is FoxFast from Twentieth Century Fox. Microsoft states that the new app is an extension of the FoxFast.com web site, which offers marketing materials and videos for its movie and TV shows. The blog adds:

The next natural evolution for the site was to make its great offerings even more accessible, so Fox created the FoxFast Windows 8 app – a touch-first app that scales to work on a variety of devices. The new app provides customers with an authenticated experience to securely screen content and manage marketing assets. User experience matters in entertainment, so creating an excellent experience with Windows 8 means it’s that much easier for broadcasters to stay connected to their businesses.

Other Windows 8 business apps mentioned include the Digital Health Scorecard from Johnson & Johnson that gives consumers some idea of how healthy they might be by answering a series of questions. The furniture retailer Rooms To Go also has its own point of sale app for Windows 8 and Bank of America has launched a Windows 8 mobile banking app for its customers.
