Microsoft launches Apportals to improve app management on Windows 8


From All About Microsoft:
Its latest attempt is a new technology meant to simplify the way apps are grouped, located and distributed that the company is calling Windows Apportals.

Here's how Microsoft officials described Apportals in a July 11 Springboard Series blog post:

"A Windows Apportal is a Windows 8.1 app that can integrate your entire Line of Business (LOB) stack into a single, modern, touch-based experience. The concept behind Apportals is simple – introduce the same nested folder structure common in a desktop OS to the modern mobile OS. The result is a UI experience that allows the user to drill from the Start screen (composed of Live Tiles) to another mini-Start screen (composed of Grid Tiles). And best of all, because an Apportal is built out of the OS, everything that runs on Windows runs in a Windows Apportal, including Desktop Windows 7 Applications; Modern Windows 8 Apps; and Web Applications."
