Microsoft increases app-roaming limits, from 5 to 81 devices

Microsoft increases the number of Windows 8 and 8.1 devices that users can install app on from 5 to 81 devices (NASDAQ:MSFT)

A few weeks from the launch of its next iteration of its flagship OS, Microsoft has increased the number of Windows 8 and 8.1 devices that users can install Windows Store apps from 5 to 81 devices.




Microsoft's new app-roaming limit begins on October 9, and will involve all Windows Store/Metro Style apps that are associated with a single Microsoft account. The news comes directly from a new Microsoft "Windows App Builder" blog which was posted on September 27. The blog post reads: "Developers that decide to have the app enforce a constraint around the number of devices must disclose that constraint to Windows Store customers and set expectations appropriately."


Increasing it to 81 is a nice touch with Windows 8.1 coming in just a few weeks time.
