Windows 8 is still in beta, but that's not stopping app developers from getting their apps in the Windows 8 store, already. Cbazaar, an Indian ethnic wear retailer have got their application in the Windows 8 App Store and are also claiming to be the first e-commerce application in the Windows 8 store. The app is available for free and can be found in the “shopping” section of the store. To fit in with the Windows 8 tile theme, the metro UI, the app, too has added large tiles for navigation. The app provides the choices of Indian ethnic wear that their website displays plus more designs that were made specifically for the app. The design house introduces 150 to 200 new designs every day. They say their designs reach more than a hundred thousand customers across 54 countries, “in all continents” (even Antarctica?).

The app also claims to grow 100 percent year on year and showcases “riot inducing” karigari from various parts of the country. To download this app, you need to download Windows 8 Beta OS from Microsoft website (find out more here), which is free. After the OS is downloaded, you will find the Cbazaar app in the shopping section of the Windows 8 app store. Speaking on the launch of the app, Rajesh Nahar, CEO & Co-Founder, Cbazaar said, “It was quite a challenging task to keep in pace with the technology that allows us to venture into a whole new realm of handling apps. Furthermore, accomplishing this advancement at a break-neck speed marks a niche, and bridges the gap between the end user's demands and our capability to serve, technology-wise. We are expecting to witness a sea of change, an obvious result of this progress.”
