“..shopping for apps on WindowsPhone.com has gotten a lot easier recently, with more accurate search results, new categories, and the addition of Collections, our handpicked guides to the Store’s best apps and games,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post. Microsoft has added a universal search that makes it easier to find apps and information on those apps, as well as the ability to install apps via SD card. Users can also re-install an app to their Windows Phone 8 device, based on data saved in your app purchase history. “As long as you use same Microsoft account, you’ll see a Reinstall option beside each of the apps in your purchase history—just click it to put the app back on your new phone. This feature is available for both free and paid apps, which you don’t have to buy again,” Microsoft adds.
