    The Discussion

      I really like all of those improvements!

      But one question: will there be something like subscription for apps in the future? Like my app costs $1.99 for one year and then you have to buy it again (actually I would like $2.99 in first year and every other year is $0.99 or $9.99 and $0.99 every month). Since a lot of apps have a server in background this would make it very easy for developers. And I consider this better than In-App purchase or my own payment. I think you get the idea.

      I would also like to see subscriptions. It's important to me and I'm holding off on developing some apps for the store until I see it. There's been hints that it's coming, but I was hoping it'd be discussed more at Build.

      I do like these new store improvements, though.

      @Matt17, yes, as we mention in the presentation, Subscriptions is already in preview, and will be available to all Windows Store developers this Summer.

      Thanks for coming back to the comments and linking that video. Just what I was hoping for, and a good talk overall. Like the video banners.
