Transcript of "Windows app store concept"

  1. 1. “The Windows App Store”<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Inspired by Steam<br />
  4. 4. Discover applications<br />
  5. 5. Discover applications<br />For Windows apps<br />
  6. 6. Discover applications<br />Central location for Windows apps<br />Free and paid apps<br />Focus on free apps first, minimise burden of payment processing<br />Find application updates<br />New versions, features, changes<br />Makes it easy to “get” the apps<br />No visiting websites, figuring download location<br />
  7. 7. Discover applications<br />Offer app reviews, ratings<br />Increases trial, decreases risk<br />People discuss apps in one location<br />Way to discover new apps<br />Downloadsquad, Lifehacker shows demand for small, useful Windows applications<br />
  8. 8. Scenario<br />Go to app store<br />Find “Firefox”<br />1-click downloads EXE from Mozilla servers<br />Runs the EXE<br />Ideally: silent setup<br />If paid app: provide key/registration for copy/paste<br />
  9. 9. Store APP CONFIG<br />
  10. 10. Store app config<br />Cloud storage of application preferences and configurations<br />Store application preferences and profile-like data<br />Ex. Firefox profile, Photoshop brushes, FTP software stored logins<br />Similar to Steam Cloud<br />
  11. 11. Store app config<br />Either manually upload of data<br />Automatic scheduled upload (potential monetization)<br />Indirect backup of application configs<br />
  12. 12. Store app config<br />Would support,<br />File structure configs<br />AppData files<br />Files elsewhere<br />Registry based configs<br />Smart archiving<br />Ex. Ignore “cache” folder in Firefox profile<br />Filter out config not globally applicable<br />
  13. 13. Scenario<br />Backup Photoshop config<br />Select<br />Brushes<br />Swatches<br />Preferences<br />ZIP archive, upload<br />
  14. 14. Manage applications<br />
  15. 15. Manage applications<br />User profile-based<br />List of applications installed<br />Version update prompts, downloads<br />Paid application keys, registrations<br />
  16. 16. Scenario<br />Reinstalled PC<br />Install Windows<br />Download/install/launch app manager<br />1-click dl & install all “my applications”<br />Installs apps<br />Installs configs for those apps<br />
  17. 17. Implementation<br />
  18. 18. Backend<br />Backend powered by “custom rules” for each app<br />Define source URL, configs folder/registry<br />Control over what apps are in the db<br />Similar to Apple’s approval process for app submissions<br />
  19. 19. Backend<br />Do not need third-party developer support<br />Potential API/backend for developers to self-update their listings<br />
  20. 20. Future<br />
  21. 21. Future Scenario<br />I go to a random PC with an app I need<br />I sign into app<br />Backups current PC’s app settings<br />Applies my settings<br />Once done, removes, restores previous settings<br />
  22. 22. Future<br />Potential framework/foundation/guideline for universal application config structure<br />
