    Default The 10 Best New-Style Windows 8 Apps

    Attachment 1427

    Sure, Windows 8's new kind of application—formerly known as Metro—aren't up with iPad apps in numbers yet, at only about 5,000 available in the Windows Store compared with 275,000 in the iTunes App Store for Apple's tablet. But there are already some prime choices among them, many with names we've become familiar with on the other platforms. I refer to these full-screen, touch-friendly apps as “new-style,” since Windows 8 (but not Windows RT devices like the Surface) still run all the millions of standard Windows applications.

    We don't include what may be the most useful apps of all—Microsoft Office $215.99 at UFC Tech —because it comes included with Windows RT and the 2013 version for Windows 8 isn't out yet (though you can get it as a highly recommended free preview). We're also ignoring any of the other very useful apps that come preloaded on all Windows 8 and Windows RT installations—Mail, People, Calendar, Games, Internet Explorer, Messaging, Photos, Music, SkyDrive, and Video. Nor do we consider the included informational apps based on Bing—News, Finance, Sports, Maps, Weather, Travel, and the Bing app itself.

    We’re also not including games here, though there are many available, from popular casual games like Angry Birds Space, Cut the Rope, and Flow Free, to more graphically stunning options like Adera and Reckless Racing. We’ll certainly get to a Windows 8 Gaming roundup soon. What we wanted to do for this first list was to assemble a collection of apps that can make your Windows 8 PC or tablet productive, creative, and informative.

    Everything here is free, though some have in-app purchases. Even apps that cost money often offer trial versions—something not available in the Apple App Stores. All these apps run on Windows RT devices like the Surface as well as on Windows 8 tablets, laptops, and desktops. You get all of these new-style apps from the Windows Store, which you’ll find on the Start screen represented by a tile with a shopping bag with the new Windows logo in the middle.

    Getting apps through the store adds several advantages: They’re all checked for security, installation is a one-click affair, you can install them on multiple machines you log into without paying multiple times for paid apps, and updates are centrally managed, with notifications for apps needing updates. So without further ado, here are our top choices for the budding new operating system.

    I can't wait to get my hands on my new laptop on Windows 8 OS. I have seen a lot of suggestions on what apps to have and I hope I won't have much trouble using Windows8.
