    I am curious to know what apps will support Continuum out of the box. Or for that matter... what apps it might support in the future.

    I know MS announced their office apps (onenote, word, excel, outlook) will all scale, but I was disappointed that they did not mention the ability to use a big monitor and full size keyboard to do things like sending text messages using your phone. I don't see why they wouldn't, considering they are attempting to integrate sending text from your PC using Cortana... why would they skip over this?

    I am also a bit confused as to why Minecraft (one of their probably flagship games at the moment) wasn't built as a universal app so you could play it using the 950. I wonder if it will be in the future.

    Theoretically, any Universal Windows App that's available on both Mobile and PC will support Continuum, and this should include Messaging + Skype.

    so far: office, skype, a few games and they are a few others that have been listed as UWA (universal windows apps)
    Coming: facebook, twitter, Instagram *rumoured WhatsApp but WhatsApp has WhatsApp web*
    I also saw windows is trying to make win32 apps available with continuum as well

    I'm a bit disappointed that there isn't a way to see which apps are universal (easily). Searching only brings me to threads from a year ago or half broken lists created by users. It would be nice if it was viewable as a tab in the Windows Store.

    If they bring Win32 support to phones, I'd bet Windows will become a major player, if not overtake the two within a month. If they truly want to "put a PC in everyones pocket", this is absolutely the next step that needs to be taken.

    Correct. Baconit, Pandora, Fedora, Tweetium, all the core apps, GroupMe, Sygic, Trakter, etc. all work.

    Edit: Jumped the gun on Fedora, which does not work.

    It will be universal and I can't remember when Windows Central said the release was planned but I thought it was late November/early December.

    It'll be universal and works with Continuum. You may even catch a glimpse of it tomorrow.

    Should we expect a review of the 950 with the new app on it?
