    Hi, is there any other official TV channel app like CBS, FOX, TBS, SYFY, CW, etc?
    Hey there,

    ABC is there, NBC FOX and the like all have news apps...not sure about TV, but really, with the likes of Hulu, Hulu+, NetFlix, Vimeo, Vevo, Metrotube, I think you're pretty much covered. Also, everyone forgets about the ability to pin to start. Maybe it's because the browsing experience on the ipad and various android devices is terrible. Go to the TV site you want (we're in Canada, so we use CBC the most), and pin to start, it's that simple and no need for an app.

    For those that haven't got it yet - the foursquare app is amazing.

    More apps for your viewing and using pleasure,

    7Tutorials - FREE - need to know anything about Win8? How about your Windows phone? Hands down the best tutorial and tips & tricks site on the net. A very well designed and professional app to boot. From novice to expert, you'll find something you never thought of, we guarantee it.

    Liberty Book Reader - FREE - great epub reader that can handle anything including free epubs from DropBox! Change fonts, sizing, night mode, it's own nice little bookshelf and the animations and navigation of this app are fantastic. Well supported by the devs with constant updates based on user feedback.

    Skitch Touch - FREE - crazy good app. My personal favourite use for this app? Pixelating bills or documents before I send them. This app has too many uses to list, try it out!

    Forismatic - FREE - some of the best apps for the MicroSurf are indeed the simplest ones. Beautifully designed, simple and clean, this is indeed the best 'quotes' app in the marketplace. Screensaver, snap-to, digital photo frame? The choice is yours.

    Wizard's Choice - Freemium - is anyone else, like me, old enough to remember 'choose your own adventure books?' A very well written, engaging story awaits, give it a whirl! First episode is free, the rest will cost you a tiny bit. Great app and highly recommended.

    Have fun downloading!

    For those in the UK, TVCatchup is a brilliant app for live streaming of all 'freeview' channels.

    I saw tunein radio mentioned earlier in the thread - I'm a fan of this on the ipad, but the win8/RT version just does not work properly/consistently.

    Hi, is there any web browser app available in Windows Store for RT? I wish to have web browser app that supports ad-blocking function, I really hate ADs in webpages......

    Amazingly, FL (Fruity Loops) Groove works amazingly well. Loads within 3-4 seconds, runs rock solid. I'm not a musician, but it seems very capable. I'd like the ability to load samples and export to MP3, but I think the former is a RAM limitation more than anything. It's normally $9.99 but it's half off for the month of September.

    Ok folks let's try this one more time but I'm going to try a new format to my posts.

    NEW:
    Bamboo Page - FREE - well, Wacom is here with an official app! A note taking and sketch app 'optimized for Windows 8. Multiple tools, add detail with zoom, supports share and exports to the cloud. A very unobtrusive interface and fantastic responsiveness when writing or drawing on Surface are it's greatest strengths. Do yourself a favour and download this one now.

    OLD:
    Nick - FREE - another official app, this time from Nickelodeon. Have some little ones in the house that just can't get enough of Sponge Bob, or maybe you secretly have a thing for the Ninja Turtles? Videos, games, info, it's all there. Another great app for Surface that is a must if you have kids.

    OVERLOOKED:
    Hockey Nations Powerplay - $3.99 and Free Trial - Simply one of the best hockey games I've ever played. Worth more than double the asking price. 18 teams from around the world to choose from or customize your own. Runs butter smooth on Surface, controls are intuitive and easy to use, graphics are fantastic. Third party devs like this deserve our support. Download it and try it, even if you're not really into hockey, it's just a blast to play!

    Are there any good music apps for RT? I looked at MediaMonkey and MusicInfo but they both are overkill for what I'm looking for. I just want something like VLC for RT. I've been searching the store and online and have had no luck so I'm guessing I'm screwed. XBox music is just plain awful... I don't want to sign in to listen to my music. I just want something that will play local files without any added baggage. I never though I'd say this but Windows Media Player is looking good by comparison. Thanks.

    Sounds like you want Groove:Smart Music Player. Awesome app, check it out and let us know if this is what you're looking for.

    Thanks for the suggestion but Groove:Smart isn't what I'm looking for. It tries to do too much. I'm just looking for a bare bones, basic player that doesn't sync to the cloud, require an account, second guess my taste in music or share with social media. It seems like such a simple idea... Also, I wish apps in the store would warn you about being ad-supported. I tried a few others and ended up uninstalling all of them. I'm willing to pay for an app if I like it but I detest ad supported apps and would prefer to see that mentioned so I won't bother to download it. Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate it.

    Freda is a good eBook reader. You can read books from several sources, including SkyDrive and local storage. That last is nice; I transferred a bunch of epubs from my laptop using a USB drive, and can open them from Freda. It also syncs across devices if you have it on Windows Phone. Nice.

    I'm thinking of buyimg a Surface rt but need to know if there are apps for ftp and also photo resizing coming. I see there are coding apps for writing html and css already. Have looked on the Apps site but wish they had dates so we could see how many new apps are appearing. I use Photoshop touch and Textastic on the iPad and they are wonderful. Wish they were on the Windows Apps site.
    Thanks
    I use ShareTo: Resize with hundreds of photos from a D800 and it doesn't choke.

    I never got mFTP to work, but maybe you could.

    ps.

    I'd like to add [WaterMark] and Code Writer.

    Thanks but it has no last.fm :(

    Anyway using Xbox Music app I have another problem: it ruins all my music metadata despite I disabled the specific option. I hate it!

    For now I'm using Groove: it has microsd support but no last.fm scrobbling. I just sent a feedback to its developer...
