Great news! Esri has launched a native application in the new Windows Store available on devices running Windows 8 or Windows RT.  The product name is ArcGIS for the Windows Store. 

The application provides a preview of features available to the ArcGIS Online mapping platform on Windows 8/Windows RT.  With the app you can explore a gallery of compelling maps that showcase relevant demographic, commercial, and environmental topics. Use the app to view, navigate, and learn more about these maps with your fingertips.

Support for the ArcGIS for the Windows Store Preview is handled through the application itself.  Once you have the app installed, there is an option to contact Esri.  With that said, we want your feedback. So please, get the app today from the Windows Store and tell us how we can improve the experience.
