    Hulu+ and Netflix are great if you use those services. OneNote and Remote Desktop are indispensable in productivity (Remote Desktop is really good if you have a computer at home to use for hosting desktop applications).

    Great suggestions. This should be a sticky. I'd add a few

    Armed! - crisp tower defense game (available on WP8 too). Play against computer or remotely against others.
    DragonBox+ - super entertaining game for kids and adults that secretly teaches them algebra (seriously the best learning game I've ever seen)
    Fitbit - to view your fitbit steps and sleep activity
    Skype - great, updated version of the Skype client (the Win8/RT version is the best)
    CascadeSkier - Ski resort conditions for those in the Pacific Northwest United States
    Pulse - newsreader I use along with Discourse and News Bento
    mobile.HD - view MKV files natively, either locally or streaming from a local network. Works with Music too!
    Music Info - Best UI around and the absolute best music player I've seen for Win8/RT
    gMaps Pro - Mapping and directions - including Google Latitude to view locations of friends sharing via Latitude

    Bing Daily News app - Great customization and great presentation
    Pulse.me app - Great news aggregator.
    The Gunstringer - It's like Temple Run.
    IE 10 - I have a bunch of websites pinned with IE. Works great.

    Gmusic - If your like me and have an Android phone, and previously uploaded a ton of music to Google Music, then this app is a must. Gives you access to all of your google music that you uploaded (I have like 30+gb of music, and was debating to transfer it to a different service, but whoever this dev is - THANKS.

    Cheezburger -for all the meme-ers out there this program is an aggregate of the daily best hits. Supports left and right swipe, pretty good for such a random app.

    One that should be mentioned is adobes pdf reader. Its just been the most consistent reader for me, especially with my gimassive textbook files. I also actually like my reader that comes with surface itself, though I know quite a few people bark at it.
