Windows 8's Bing-powered news app is an excellent example of what can be done with Metro-style design: it's clear, well designed and easy to use — with a wide selection of news sources from around the world.
Similar to the News app, the travel app mixes images and editorial content with tools to help you find hotels and flights, and plan your dream holiday. Its panorama views take advantage of Metro's side-scrolling design.
Windows 8's Store is where you'll find and buy Metro-style applications. It's also how you'll be able to track down desktop applications — with links to third-party sites from inside its catalogue.
