    Since Microsoft's app store is now officially called "Windows Phone Store", not "Marketplace", could we have the forum "Marketplace Apps" changed to "Windows Phone Store Apps" to correctly represent Microsoft's terminology?

    I concur probably best to keep it in line with whatever MS is calling things these days even if they are not consistent with their branding.

    Thanks for the suggestion this really needed to be updated. After some discussion we decided to go a different way. We are getting rid of the word marketplace and since the forums are under the WP stuff header we don't even need WP in their title. So now its just Apps and Games. Thanks again for the suggestion.

    You're welcome. I like the new titles. That will be applicable even if Microsoft decides to rename its store again.

    Having trouble accessing that section now. Sometimes when the page loads it shows as Apps, sometimes as Marketplace Apps, sometimes as Windows Phone Apps and leads to a dead link 90% of the time since this morning. Have tried clearing my cache and it still happens.

    I can duplicate the issue. I'm running Firefox Nightly in Windows 8 Pro x64.



    Same thing in IE10.



    Same thing in Opera 12.12 x64
