3. Small Selection of Apps:
Limited applications are available in store to download. You will be amazed to know that even the official Facebook application is missing.
4. Installation is not Possible from Any other Source except Windows Store:
You cannot make downloads of your own choice. You can only have those software applications, which are widely available in Windows store. This also leaves a negative impact on the users.
