Windows 8 SkyDrive app updated; Oprah gets her OWN app

On Thursday, Microsoft announced that it would update its many in-house created Windows 8 apps for RTM users before Windows 8 is commercially launched on October 26th. Now, as revealed by McAkins Online, a new update for the Windows 8 SkyDrive app has been released.

The new version of the app offers up a new landing page that includes a video tutorial to get people up to speed on the SkyDrive app. also reveals that searching for files is now enabled, along with renaming and moving folders and a way to access the Recycle Bin.

McAkins Online also noticed another new Windows 8 app that has appeared for download in the Windows Store. It's the official app for the cable TV channel the Oprah Winfrey Network, otherwise known as OWN

The app's description says:

Your on-the-go guide to becoming your best self: spirit, style, health, food, home and relationships. Get hand-picked advice from the most trusted experts. Plus, keep up with the latest from Oprah, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Here's the kicker: The Windows Store website says that the OWN app was actually developed by Oprah herself. Yes we know; it was likely one of her employees, but we can still imagine Oprah sitting in front of her desktop monitor and programming the code for her Windows 8 app. Hey, it's possible.
