    Fun and possibly helpful question:

    What's your favorite/most used Desktop app, and Metro app to use on your surface?

    Let's leave OneNote and Netflix aside since we all love those by default :)

    Bing News is surprisingly good to get everything amalgamated from major news sources.

    News Bento I use to read other articles and as an RSS reader. I use it to subscribe to newsfeed from this forum as well.

    I use Hyper to organize YouTube channels and to download videos to watch offline.

    Tunein is great for internet radio. There are a lot of categories and it's easy to set yout favourite stations.

    Yeah the Bing apps are awesome! I use Bing Sports, Bing News and Bing Weather all the time. They are all absolutely gorgeous apps!

    Drawboard pdf. Not necessarily the best app in the world, but its the only app other than vlc, utorrent, and office 2013 i care to install. Seems to do the job pretty well.
