    MS has some store games like Forza.. But yeah general third-party stuff is kinda meh. Facebook, I think Netflix.. Google plainly said they have no interest in developing any "Metro/Modern/etc" apps (which shows how long ago they said that). I like UWP apps when I can find them since they look good on HiDPI. The Mail app handles 4K way better than even Outlook 2016.

    - can't backup and restore apps (to avoid re-downloading)
    - can't easily backup saved data
    - apps are really basic with hardly any features
    - ms games are huge downloads
    - store is still glitchy, download problems, installation problems etc
    - can't move / copy a game to another pc because of encryption, get forced to down it all again
    - must sign in on many apps / games or they don't work at all

    probably more bad things to list but that's what i got right now.

    'Windows Store App Backup' by Kiran Murmu
    ================================================================================

    1] Enter the App path:
    ex. C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Disney.TempleRunOz_1.6.0.25_x86__6rarf9sa4v8jt
    Copy the 'Windows App' path which you want to backup, click on the left side
    console icon and select "Edit" then "Paste" and hit enter.

    2] Enter the Output path:
    ex. C:\Users\User Name\Desktop\New folder
    Copy the 'Output' path where you want to save the backup, click on the left side
    console icon and select "Edit" then "Paste" and hit enter. Backup process will start
    immediately... this may take some time to make package.

    3] A Window will pop up 'Create Private Key Password'
    Enter your password and click 'OK' then follow steps, or click 'None' button to skip.
    This process may take some minutes after that backup App is ready to use.

    4] Use 'WSAppPkgIns.exe' file to install the backup App. Copy 'WSAppPkgIns.exe' from the
    'WSAppBak' foler and paste to 'C:\Windows\System32'. Now open the backup App (.appx)
    file using the 'WSAppPkgIns.exe', and make it default 'Opens with' program for (.appx)
    file.

    *You must have installed Windows Store App license of the App to run the backup App.
    *You must have installed 'Dependencies Package' to install the App. (You can backup
    dependencies package too)
    *You must not delete any file from the 'WSAppBak' folder, or program may not works.
     
  9. are UWP's/PWA's safer then Win32 Applications then? :/

    I think they are, at least some apps like Skype is safer because it's 64 bit while the desktop app is still 32 bit.
