    If the app won't run in Windows 8.1 it won't install. I have apps on my phone that won't work on my computers and I have apps on my computers that won't on my phone. When I look at my apps in the store they are listed that they are incompatible and won't install. I just don't see how this makes the apps any better.
    I have found myself that the ones in ten store are faster and have more added to them.

    I'm not saying that some apps made for Windows 10 are not better. I don't know if they are or not. I'm saying a app that only runs on Windows 10 will not install on a earlier version of Windows. I don't see why "showing" that a app was made for Windows 10 is anything to get excited about.

    Tried 10 Returned to 8.1
       15 Feb 2016 #23

    So a user running either 7 or 8.1 and very happy with their OS, is going to switch to W-10 just so they can install an App that was built for W-10? Yea Right!

    Those that use 8.1 might want to see if an app in 10 will work in 8.1
    Windows 10 I find has a better store app
    I think you misunderstand.... an 10 app can only run on 10

    you will not see a Windows 10 app anywhere else except in the Windows 10 store....
    you will not see a Windows 8.1 app anywhere else except in the Windows 8.1 store
    you will not see a Windows 8.0 app anywhere else except in the Windows 8.0 store

    Example I use AlarmClock HD on all of my Windows 8/8.1/10 machines
    but each one, is different,
    there is a Windows 10 version
    there is a Windows 8.1 version
    there is a Windows 8.0 version
    each one has to be built to run on that platform and that version is only available on the corresponding OS.

    some may suggest you upgrade to a different version, for it to run better or run at all, but I have only seen those in 8.0 machines where they wanted you to upgrade to 8.1., I have seen no reference for 10 apps.

    and you may have to pay for each version separately...
