We have known for a while now that Microsoft has been working on a Windows Phone 8.1 refresh, and today we have been given one of our first looks at the freshened UI thanks to leaked screenshots. The leaks were first spotted by WPCentral, and show that Microsoft has put a lot of work into redesigning the Windows Phone Store.




A new "Featured" tab will display apps that have been custom recommended for you based on your previous app downloads, while a new "Quick Links" section will serve up a list of categories that neatly organizes apps in an easily navigable list such as featured apps, games, and top paid and free apps. App pages have also been redesigned to better display the apps features, comments, and updates. Finally, the Windows Phone Store will now have dedicated sections that will allow users to check for updates, view active downloads, and more.
