SpongeBob and more Nick stars in new Windows 8 app

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SpongeBob SquarePants! Yes, one of the wildest and best children's TV shows of all time has made its official Windows 8 debut, thanks to the launch of the new Nickelodeon app today for Microsoft's latest OS in the Windows Store.

The new app has a lot of information for both kids and adults about our favorite living sponge, along with his friend Patrick, Squidward and the other residents of Bikini Bottom. There's also a game, SpongeBob's Jellyfishin' Mission, that can be checked out.

The new Nickelodeon app also has information on its other popular TV shows, including animated shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and The Legend of Korra and its live action sitcoms such as iCarly and others.

Again, this shows that the Windows 8 platform is quickly becoming one that major companies and media organizations want to use to release their touch screen-based apps, just a few weeks after its general release. Hopefully, Microsoft will offer up some kind of official update on the status of the Windows Store and the number of apps that can be downloaded for its users.

I could not decide if a WART tablet was for me, I was concerned about app availability but not now. With SpongeBob in the App Store I will be picking up a Surface just as soon as I can. Office and SpongeBob apps are what I use most.

Maybe the quality will start improving. Right now it's mostly crap like fart apps or really badly written trivia games, they really need some quality control. Of course they let just about anything in because they want to crow about how many apps their store has.

there is actually pretty good selection I find.. Wayyyyy better then when I had either the HP touchpad (returned it because there were no apps at all) and the Asus Transformer Prime (which had very few apps back when I got it.. they were all just cell phone apps)..

I find some nice ones from bigger companies.. way better app store then any other with in the first 20 days of launch.. I really give props to Microsoft for not falling for the old trap of allowing people to download phone apps on their tablets.. which made using the touchpad and the transformer prime useless because it took forever to get through all the phone apps to get to the ones made for that size tablet.

I don't think you actually use 8 do you, go on admit it, you don't do you? come on we're all friends here, we wont think bad of you if you just admit to your trolling behaviour......

/hides awaiting the backlash of windows 8 haters comments like "oh so I don't like windows 8 and that makes me a hater, grow up" blar blar - a trolling comment is a trolling comment, if its backed up with reality I would treat it as such and engage in adult discussion, but as it is I'm calling troll.

No they aren't all bad, but really on a desktop they are all worthless. Fullscreen apps on a 24" monitor is riduclous. These are all phone apps, and as far as the games they're almost all terrible.
