Google Released Chrome Web Store!

The Google Chrome Web Store

Google has followed the Apple footprint to launch its own Chrome Web Store. Like Apple’s apps store, the Chrome Web store offers a wide range of apps, extensions and themes which works on Chrome. Once you are in the store, it is intuitive to find the apps categories on the left-hand section.

Once you have searched your favorite apps, simply click on it and it will brings you to its own page displaying all related information about the app. Some apps are for free but some require you to buy it before you can install it. If you are not satisfied with the apps, Google allows you to cancel your order within 30 minutes after you have paid the app. Not a bad idea!

To start with, I recommend you to install “NPR for Chrome”, “Dream2”, “NYTimes”, “Poppit” and “Amazon Windowshop” because these were the apps being demo’ed in the launch event and Google even invited senior officers from NYTimes, Electronic Arts (EA) and Amazon to run the demo.

You can literally find your installed apps by opening a new tab. All of the apps will be listed nicely in the first row.

While most of these apps are developed in HTML5 format, the user interface are so rich, visually appealing and interactive. I have tried NYTimes and absolutely love it. The display of news and images are never been engaging and interactive. I think viewing and navigating the page with touch screen device by flipping with fingers will be an awesome experience. Too bad I don’t own any of those devices but still quite enjoyable using keyboard. And, you can read it offline if disconnected from internet.

The store starts with 500 apps and is growing fast. For developer, it is yet another great store for you to showcase your masterpiece and generate popularity. For normally user like me, I have another choice to download great apps and enjoy them!

Visit at https://chrome.google.com/webstore and I am sure you will love it like I do.
