Windows 8 store is broken

Do you like the windows app store. I’m not a huge fan. It has a sloppy interface and several things are broken. The main fundamental issues with the windows store is the fact that the search algorithms are quiet useless. They often do not understand what you are looking for and give you improper results. If Microsoft wants to make this a viable option, they need to put some serious effort into improving this functionality. It frustrates me while trying to search for applications.

The other big thing is they need to tighten the branding search. If you search for Facebook, there will be about 20 different items that show up and Facebook isn’t’ even the first one. It gets quite frustrating for most people and I hope they really fix this soon if they hope to gain any ground.
