    I'm curious to know which apps you guys are using these days?

    I'm fairly boring as I mainly use my surface pro 4 for work so I use a couple of work specific programs and Drawboard is another program I use quite a bit for tweaking and signing documents etc

    I'm just using grover podcasts for listening throughout the day.

    What about you guys?

    Is this to keep track of projects or notes or how do you use it?

    I like the clean look of Nextgen Reader; performs without issue. (But still wish Windows mobile had a share function akin to Android's).

    PS
    Seems we have similar tastes: I also use Drawboard and Grover Pro.

    Yes, I would also have to go with Nextgen Reader. In my opinion it is the best news aggregator among all platforms.

    Sounds like a lot of love for Nextgen Reader! Any other apps you're enjoying? Any that you specifically use only with your Surface Pro 4?

    Nothing Surface specific. Just some stats software for work.

    Awesome! Yeah, as I use this as my work device I don't put a lot of additional apps on here that aren't really needed. I experiment here and there but keep it pretty tame for the most part.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Nothing SP4 specific really. Just that some like MS Office, mTalk, and Twitter must be on it for it to be complete.

    For sure MS Office, but I use that on all machines so not Surface specific.

    True. Its just that since I've gotten an SP4 I'm using it more and more as my go to device. I'm on it more than my laptop!

    @meattray @TgeekB @Player Piano @eKeith @niklas_h - wish I had a Surface Pro 4 so I could properly participate in this discussion lol

    Question though - are there any apps NOT available that you really wish you had on your SP4?

    @James Falconer honestly I'm pretty happy with the app selection. Considering this isn't a mobile device I wouldn't use things like Snapchat or other of the "missing" windows 10 type apps. Considering I mainly use this as a business device, I haven't run into an instance where I was like "Darn I wish I had that app".

    I'd like to potentially see more apps incorporate the surface pen if anything though. That would be where I would like to see some changes. I mean there are a few and they work fine but I think that's an area Microsoft could expand. I know I'm using physical paper less and less with this device but it would be nice to build that out even further.

    I work with electricity and I draw circuits on blueprints - so I can put a price for a customer.
    Working great.

    I use "TouchMe Gesture Studio" (horrible name, awesome app) to do some really great touch based control (for instance, 3 finger turn right or left to turn up/down volume, etc.)

    I also use gesture controls in Edge for quick browsing, works well with the pen (forward, backwards, jump to top, jump to bottom).

    Welp, sticking just to "app", you know, the ones from the store, there's Microsoft Edge, Slack, Messenger, Hypersonic and Outlook. For non-store stuff, Visual Studio 2017 and Microsoft Excel.

    From my battery Usage stats, it says I use Edge, word, skype, OneNote, myTube & Cortana the most. I'm surprised that Steam & Netflix weren't higher on the list. Well, there you have it, my top 8 applications
