    iCookbook
    Wine Table
    Cocktail Flow
    TweeTro
    YouTubeRT
    MLS

    Cocktail flow is such a nice app! If not the nicest I have seen!. I've been enjoying:


    Nextgen Reader
    Xbmc Remote+

    Now I need a good smooth EPUB reader with highlighting and a photo editing app that removes red eye... and possibly a video player that will play .mkv and CHROME please! Then I am all set. The rest will just be fun additional apps.

    We seem to be using the word official rather liberally around here. This is wish list stuff based upon personal preference. There also isn't a thing on your list I would consider must have, or that I would even want. Not trying to be rude but how about we title threads what they are?

    I called it official in the sense of this will be the one stop thread for great app recommendations. Feel free to participate or see ya later.

    ya huh. Use the Devices Charm when playing a video and with your xbox on (i don't think it matters who is signed in either) and you can push video right to the xbox in HD glory and remain with full control of your Surface (unlike using Smartglass).


    You can do the same with local music and also the video app as well. I hope more apps plug into the devices charm for audio/video sending.

    I actually prefer YoutubeRT over Youtube+ because when downloading videos, it asks you where you want to save in your computer (in mp4 format that can be played using the stock video app). Also you can save it in mp3 format as well if you just want the song. I don't know if you will still buy music because this is so powerful.

    There's an app called The Big Picture that I really like. It is just an occasionally-updated collection of professional photos from the staff of the Boston Globe. Some of them are truly beautiful, and it lets you download them to use for your lock screen etc.

    One minor bug I noticed: When you choose to save a photo it will save the previous photo, not the one you're currently looking at, so go one photo past the one you really want and then save. I'm sure they'll fix that in the next update, but it gives you lots of choices for a beautiful lock screen or desktop bg pic.

    Good find.

    Anyone know if there's a guide to installing the Firefox nightly builds? I keep getting a message saying it won't run on my PC.

    Youtube+ does the same thing though, and instead of a 7-day trial before purchase like YouTube RT, Youtube+ is entirely free with only a tiny ad, or you can pay to remove the ad.

    Just another thing to keep in mind when deciding between the two.

    i should add....Ads have been pretty non intrusive on most free apps. Most just put a banner ad at the end of the scroll. Though Wine Table, a beautiful app, has some ugly banners that pop up from time to time...i'd be happy to pay for ad free experience since these apps imo are more beautiful than ipad apps.
