    New update is out for those PC users running the latest 8.1 Update. The new app store look, feel and usability is vastly improved. Thank the gods! Go to your settings and check for updates. You won't see anything that says 'app store' anywhere, but it is in there. In total I had nearly 200mb of updates today on my PC and 88mb worth on my Dell Venue Pro 8.

    Yes, a much welcomed change. There are so few quality apps in the app store and the poor layout of the store (before this update) made it even harder to find.

    This is great! I rarely (read never) use the start screen but I'll check it out and play around with the new store.

    I don't see the update on my phone :confused:

    I don't see any OS updates in the settings nor do I see an update notification in the store - what am I doing wrong?

    I believe he's talking about 8.1 for pc's, not the phones.
