The Windows Store on Windows 8.1 will emulate Google Play and Apple's App Store, with lists of top free apps, new apps and top picks right on its homepage, so you don't have to dig. Microsoft promises to give more info about each app, so you know exactly what you're getting before tapping Download, and a related apps section gives more options.
The new app description pages displays screen shots as large tiles and sections certain information behind tabs, and you can navigate through this information by scrolling to the right. And if you know exactly what app you're looking for, a search function in the upper right gives you quick access. Not to mention, all apps in the Windows 8.1 store have been updated.
