Improvements coming to our online app store

Many of you already know about the infrastructure upgrades to the Windows Phone Dev Center we’ve been rolling out the last two months. Less obvious is that these backend changes have also allowed us to make some improvements to our online consumer store for apps and games.

To that end, make sure to check out today’s post from my colleague Mazhar Mohammed, who details some of these changes, which we’ve just started to roll out. One notable change is that Marketplace is now called the Windows Phone Store. Like our visual design, the Store name is just one more thing Windows Phone and Windows have in common.

As always, I’m eager for your feedback and questions.
