New Metro Enterprise Apps Coming To The Surface

Over the past few months, Microsoft has been working with Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop Windows Store apps for the enterprise.  On July 1, the company announced our ISV Program, AppsForSurface, which provides devices and funding for app design intended to get key enterprise apps on Surface and Windows 8.  Microsoft has announced new participants to the program:
