With today's launch of the Windows 8 Release Preview, Microsoft has also released some new and improved versions of its various first party Windows 8 Metro apps via the Windows Store. One of the new apps is called Fresh Paint, a new drawing and painting tool.
In its description on the Fresh Paint web site, Microsoft indicates this app is for kids and family to enjoy. It states, "Discover delightfully real paint that behaves like real paint where it should and better than real where you need it. Blend and mix colors to get just the look you want." The app also allows its users to zoom in on their creations.

Microsoft has also updated a number of its previous Windows 8 Metro apps for the Release Preview, including its Photos, Music and Camera software. In addition, there are a number of new third party Windows 8 Metro apps that have been added to the Windows Store. We will go over some of those new apps in a future post.
