In terms of features, you're not going to find much here with Windows 8 App Remover. That doesn't necessarily mean that it isn't useful, though!

Windows 8 App Remover is actually a very small application which runs as a normal Windows desktop application which can quickly and effortlessly remove Metro or "Modern UI" apps which have been installed on your system. Unlike traditional application uninstallers, Windows 8 App Remover focuses solely on those pesky Apps which appears on the Start Screen.

The application really only has one interface screen, but it can sort applications and provides access to things like like Sports, Travel, Food&Drink, PDF Reader, Skype, etc. You can either "Select All", "Deselect All, list apps or mount them.

It's rather useful overall and quicker than using the clumsy interface Microsoft somehow managed to release.
