Filtering the Microsoft Store

Be nice...

So I just realised the Microsoft Store can be filtered and sorted!

Clicking on the heading of each section allows you to drill down into that category with extra filtering and sorting options.

This behaviour fits the metro design guidelines to the letter (i.e. the content is the UI) so I'm not sure why I never realised this functionality existed, especially because I've been using the music app for a long time now and it works the same way.

Perhaps it was just because I've never needed to filter the Store until recently.

In any case here are some screen shots for anyone in the same boat as me (ok, so maybe I'm the only one. Like I said... be nice)
