Microsoft is all about unifying devices as of late, and that continues today with its merging of the Windows PC and Windows mobile stores.
Now if you search for apps in the Windows Store on your PC, mobile-only apps like Instagram and PayPal will show up, too. For the time being, they come with a disclaimer that reads "This app will not work on your device", but you can expect PC support eventually, at which time the disclaimer should be removed.
In any case, this represents an important step in Microsoft's goal of unifying its operating system and devices.
