Windows 8.1 apps windows 10 store RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do Windows 8.1 apps show up in windows 10 store? (it is my understanding that they do)

    If so; do windows 10 UWP Apps receive any kind of of 'points boost' so they appear in preference to other 8.1 apps?

    I am publishing an 8.1 app and deciding if it is worth making a UWP version when I do not require any of it's additional APIs.

  • I have a Windows 8.1 app in the store. It does show up when searching for the app or it's keywords. But it does not show up in the "top free apps" list at all. In the Windows 8 Store, it is on place ~20 in the free apps list, but on Windows 10, it does not appear at all. This is pretty bad and it has caused my app's download numbers to steadily decline since Windows 10 introduction... Not sure if the situation will really improve by moving to UWP. Do other devs experience the same issue?
