A new app has landed on the Windows Store and it is an app store, within an app store.
The app is the Windows 8 version of the AppUp Center from PC processor maker Intel. The company has offered the AppUp Center for a few years now, mainly for use by laptop and netbook PC owners. The Windows 8 version acts as yet another direct software download store for games, productivity, security and other PC software.
There's another third party app store, Softonic, that also has a Windows 8 app available for download this week.
With at least two third party software download stores available for Windows 8, one wonders if Valve might also give in and develop a similar app for its Steam PC game service. Valve has said it plans to offer non-gaming software on Steam, but as we reported before, a planned launched of September 5th never materialized.
