    Best Microsoft Store Apps

    ... or most useful apps for T100.
    I'm migrant from android world and i was thinking that there would be nice to have some list of most useful apps for metro ui.
    I already know that there is no tapatalk app like in android, but maybe there is similar app on win 8.1
    Momentaly I only installed facebook and twitter app.
    On Facebook app it is strange that for poke it opens IE in desktop mode. There is no poke option on metro ui?

    Good idea.

    I haven't found many myself.

    The Microsoft Store is one of the big disappointments of the Win8.1 environment right now but coming from an Android environment that's had many years to mature, I have my fingers crossed that with the introduction of these small form, portable, long battery life full Windows 8.1 systems such as the great and mighty (oops that's from the Wizard of Oz) Asus T100 that app writers will soon step in and begin supporting the Windows platform.

    As for MS Store apps I've tried... dozens and dozens. As for store apps I use... Facebook, Netflix, HuluPlus, and Weather.

    Yeah, so far, I'm not a huge fan of the store...a few things here and there. But, that is not why I bought the T100....it is a full on computer, so I mostly take the route of installing actual programs, instead of 'apps' (it's all a bit semanticsy, isn't it).

    Beside my upgrade to Office Professional 2013...I've installed more than 15 apps from the Store and made them all tiles.

    I only install apps that I actually will use...if I don't use them within 30 days...they get uninstalled. Still, so far I have used (multiple times) 12 of the 15 so far. There's plenty to offer...but if people are looking for free ones only...that will narrow the pickings by about 1/3.

    i enjoy the YouTube app by Hyper.

    I don't really mind this thing "doesn't have all the apps", because I have my Phone for that.
    I use my T100 as a portable touch-enabled netbook and also as my main device.

    Hypertube is great, prefer it to the web version. Other apps I use regularely are redditing, twitter, facebook, netflix, flipboard, frost (weather). Very pleased with those, but hoping there'll be a wider selection in the store soon. But that's the great thing about this little device - switching between metro and the full version of windows. I've gotten so used to it and i'm loving the whole experience.

    Pickings are VERY slim in the Win 8 app store. The Flipboard and Wall St Journal apps are pretty good. MediaMonkey is a decent music player.

    Still missing many basic apps like Pandora, Spotify, Sirius/XM radio. I know MetroRadio is a third party substitute for Pandora but it's pretty bare bones.

    Anybody know of a metro app for Sirius/XM? I haven't found one yet.

    Check out the programs from bluestacks.com. They allow you to sync apps from your phone to your computer. They have other apps available on their market, and if I was reading it correctly, can let you run android store on your t100.
