  3. I am using Windows 8 and I don't have these games, and funny I don't have kids. LOL! Nevertheless, I can say yes, these games are good for children, the math and painting app are two applications I love among all.

    I found this post shared on Kingged.com, the Internet marketing social site, and I "kingged" it and left this comment.

    1. Hii Metz,

      I liked your first line statement "I am using Windows 8 and I don't have these games, and funny I don't have kids." Thank you so much for sharing your view about these Windows 8 apps here on my Blog.

      As you said that sometimes, a pop-up appears on your Windows 8 screen that you can download 8.1 version. This is a common notification from Microsoft. Windows 8.1 is the upgraded version with some new features of Windows 8. So they are notifying you. If you don't wish to upgrade then ignore that notification. There is no need to be worry.

      Keep coming and sharing your view Dear Metz Miranda……!!
