Last October, alongside its Surface Studio all-in-one desktop PC , Microsoft introduced the Surface Dial , describing it as “a new tool for the creative process”. Priced at $99.99, the rotary controller offers new ways to interact with a range of software – but it requires app-level support to be able to do so.
Microsoft has now made it easier to find apps on the Windows Store that support the Surface Dial. Microsoft’s Jen Gentleman (@JenMSFT) revealed that the company added a new Apps for Surface Dial collection to the Store over the weekend, more clearly signposting such apps to users.
The addition of that new page does, however, highlight the limited number of apps that offer that support. Currently, just 17 apps are listed there – quite a small selection, given that almost nine months have passed since the Surface Dial was announced.
