The Windows app Store has been down quite a rocky road this year. As some big names drop support for Windows apps, others opt to join. Just like the infamous Chinese app Ali Express, an online shopping platform with 100+ million products and offers by far the most competitive rates on all sorts of products globally.
The app is also known to offer some of the most interesting and generous deals on weekly and daily basis. Thanks to Alibaba.com, a Singaporean E-Commerce giant, Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users have finally got the most anticipated shopping platform on their fingertips.
The largest online retail app has a lot to offer to its users. You can purchase all kinds of products from Chinese vendors, only at a much, much cheaper price. The categories range from clothing, accessories, electronics and gadgets to car parts, machinery and even beauty products. You name it, the app has it.
Having been a frequent shopper of the store myself, the only downside I found was the shipping period. It can be painstakingly long. Of course, you can always choose to pay the shipping fee and get it delivered sooner. Else, the process could take MONTHS.
The app is very ‘Windows 10’ when we talk about the overall interface. On the other hand, users are not very pleased with the UWP, claiming that it is ‘just a web-wrapper’ and that Alibaba didn’t put much effort into building a proper mobile app for the platform. However, this should only be seen as an initial step and the company is planning on improving it substantially in the coming releases.
You can try out the AliExpress app for Windows 10 here for both PCs and smartphones. It is best to be the judge yourself and to find out on your own if it’s worth the effort or not.
