    What are some essential apps for the Surface Pro 2? Apps that are essential on the surface, apps that make the Surface experience better, or apps that are just fun to have around?

    I'd add Sketchbook Express. I'm thinking of buying Sketchbook pro, but it's full desktop program and it's $50. Wish they had the $1 mobile version (with layers and brush controls), but since we've got full win8, we can run that. For games, I love Rayman. I bought it for wp8 as well..

    I haven't started using it yet, but I also bought FruityLoops FL Studio, which is musical loop remixing app.

    I guess it depends on what you want to do with your sp2.

    Up until this latest version it used to be $100. It's an amazing program even at $100 and a ridiculous bargain at $50 if you're at all serious about stepping up from express.

    I have my Surface Pro 2 mostly for school and gaming purposes. However, I wanted use this thread as a sort of catch-all list for the best apps to use on the SP2.
