Microsoft has brought out new Metro apps for the Windows 8 store, much to the delight of those who enjoy working on the Metro UI on Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Windows 8 Gets New Metro Apps, Including A New One For Twitter

Microsoft has released a new set of Metro apps for Windows 8, which includes a Twitter app for Metro and also some games. The Twitter app is a fully functional Metro app that will help users take full advantage of the Windows 8 Metro UI with its touch gestures and full screen view with Snap. This app was part of the initial Developer Preview release in a much more basic manner and was then taken off the build before Consumer Preview was released. Now it has finally come back to Windows 8 in its full glory.

Part of the new apps is a traffic app called INRIX Traffic that gives you real time information about traffic situations in your local area. This specific app has the capability to run across Windows Phone Platforms as well, which means you can take it with you wherever you go.

Microsoft’s LifeCam Studio has also received a Metro style dashboard as part of this new bevy of Metro apps. It contains a variety of different settings for the webcam and comes with built in special effects that you can use with the webcam during live chat or video/photo sessions.

Adding to the fun element is the Hydro Thunder Hurricane app — a popular arcade game form the Xbox Live platform that has now been ported to Windows 8 Metro. It is a boat-racing game that comes built in with two boats and different tracks to choose from. Developers of the popular game have announced a full version release in the near future. This version will have as many as 11 tracks and various different kinds of boats to choose from.

Other app titles include the Euro Cup 2012, Channel 9, FlipToast, The Big Picture and Discourse. These five apps join updated versions of the older apps to make for latest wave of Metro apps. One of the useful updates is the Metro version of the WordPress app that lets users make posts right inside the panel — a feature that was added in the latest update.
