  • MORE

Microsoft Windows app store recently passed 150,000 apps available. That's a far cry from the 1 million+ available on Google Play and Apple's App Store, but you have to start somewhere. Plus, having a lot of apps isn't the same as having a lot of great apps. Still, some of the key apps from other platforms still aren't available for Microsoft's new OS. Some of these programs, such as YouTube, are available as Web-based services, but they haven't made the move to Windows 8's Modern UI. These are the 8 most important apps that still aren't available for Windows 8.1.
