    Hello
    Whats the situation with Microsoft Store apps for Windows RT?
    Is it worse than Windows Mobile Store?
    I found Surface RT for 50$ but cant justify the price if im going to use in Desktop mode with Internet Explorer 90% of the time
    Whats the situation with
    Facebook
    Messenger
    Skype
    Viber
    Tapatalk
    Soundcloud
    Youtube
    Mail clients
    and
    Web base Flash support

    Without those thing is good as brick!

    Thanks

    The RT is a Windows 8.1 device. If you want apps you are in the wrong place.
    Facebook and others have stopped support for 8.1 devices.
    Take a look in the store https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/windows-phone.
    Apps will tell you what platform they support. if they don't support 8.1 mobile they won't be in the RT store.
    Office on the RT still works just fine. It is not a brick.

    It’s a fine web browsing machine at $50 but it won’t be much else than that. (Although Office 2013 onboard is nice.)

    It's a crime these are still being sold. Microsoft unloaded them in 2013 to junk dealers and they lay in wait for the unsuspecting victims to be trapped by what might appear to be a "deal" which isn't really a deal at all. Many of the apps that used to be available are being pulled, even removed from peoples devices, you don't really own an app, they can delete it anytime they want. Big Brother has you...

    You get the RT with Office 2013. If you want to work it is still for you. If you don't understand what you buy it's time to learn.
