Why has the "share page" disappeared ?

The usual "share page" has disappeared from the Rift website. It's too bad. The actual "Experience page" is a mess. It is not classified by categories, such as:  education, games, simulations ... etc, as it used to be before. Also, it seems there's no more free downloads.    Actually, many apps for free download have disappeared. 

Why this change ???

    It's been replaced by the Oculus Store. There are free and paid games on the Store.

    Where can I find the store? Do you mean the Experience page below ???  
    https://www2.oculus.com/experiences/rift/

    This is the one I am complaining about because many apps got lost.
    Thanks

    Cybereality,

    The support has just told me that many apps have been eliminated gradually.

    You can download the Store here:

    Keep in mind, many of the demos on Share have not been updated to the new SDK so they won't work anymore on the consumer software package needed to run the consumer Rift. Sorry.

    I am confused now. I have the DK2 and the support has told me the opposite what you said. She said there are few free apps on Oculus Store but they may not work with the DK2.  If she is right, what is left for DK2 users?

    Waiting for your reply.

    P.S: Will have a look on your link.

    Thanks

    Tania

    Now I am confused. I have the DK2. The support told me that  the few free apps on Oculus Store may not work with the DK2.  Saying that, what is left for DK2 users. 

    Also, the link you send to me, is the store ??? Or only the oculus set up for downloading the runtime ????

    Waiting for your reply.

    Hi Tania.
    Oculus store works fine with DK2. I havent found anything that wont work yet

    The Oculus home and store has given DK2 a new lease of life thats for sure. There is tonnes of stuff on there , paid or free.


    But...I do miss the freeform randomness of Share
    Drift VFX Visual, Virtual , Vertical

    Want 970GTX on Macbook for good FPS?

    @pjenness ;

    Thank you.  I  feel better now. But it seems that you agree with me about the previous form of the share page.. Anyway, I need free demos to start developing. Just to light up my inspiration.  Can you send me a list ??

    I go to web pages such as http://riftinfo.com/list-of-oculus-rift-video-players-available and they link programs to your store, but when I arrive at store I get a barrage of games I have no interest in and no way to "FIND" what I am looking for apart from clicking "view all" buttons and the apps still dont show up? Need a search button for those that have a clue what they are looking for !! And the page needs some categories that make sense for instance FREE , EDUCATIONAL, GAMES, APPS,  DK2, CV1 at the moment its like walking into a library that has had all the shelves and filing system removed and all the best sellers piled at the front so you have to wade through them and randomly pick things up to find the novel you actually came to look at. Most of the time leaving and trying to google an outside link to find it.

    Bob Bitching,

    When you say "no way to "FIND" what I am looking for apart from clicking "view all" buttons and the apps still dont show up..

    Have you downloaded the new oculus set up version? Because also I had this problem, and I only visualized  the apps buttons after downloaded the set up version. But my problem persisted because the new set up version wasnt compatible to my DK2 :'(

    Tania, 

    You can skip the setup when you install the new Runtime (Oculus HOME software) and it will work just fine with your DK2, at least for the time being.
