Windows 8: Microsoft Metro Apps Ratings and Review Status

betalogo

While just browsing around the Windows Store in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview I decided to take a closer look at the marks being given by users of the Microsoft collection of Metro apps.  These apps will provide a lot of core functionality for the upcoming OS.  They are App Previews so I am positive these current versions are not anywhere near their finished counterparts that we will see later on.

Nothing scientific here beyond the numbers being reported in the Store for each app which is an average of the total ratings submitted for each app.  These are listed from most ratings received to lowest per app.

I was going to post some tidbits from the reviews but unfortunately most folks forgot that they are App Previews and most of the comments show that.
