    So, I'm looking for great apps to try out in Windows 8. Recommend me some names of apps that are in the Marketplace, and I'll try them out :)

    Thanks.

    Nice, thanks for the suggestions, however Allocine is unfortunately in another language so I don't know what it is exactly.

    I use WeatherBug because I like to keep tabs on the weather. Maybe that's just me, but I'm kind of interested in the weather.

    Also you NEED Reversi Free. It's just a fun little game that is a huge time-waster for me whenever I get bored of working.

    The default Win8 weather app isn't enough? lol

    And meh, I don't like casual games much. Thanks though.

    From what I can understand from your broken english Allocine is an app that lists movie trailers, allows you to view them, and then finds cinemas currently showing the movie?

    Regarding asking us for Windows 8 apps, we're still in the learning phase too. When we find them and like what we see we'll let you know.

    Since becoming an Android n00b, I have tried literally dozens of apps. Most of them free by the way. I just got done cleaning out my Google Play store account of the Android apps I no longer need or want. That took about 30 minutes or so. Whew! I am definitely more discerning about which apps I now download and use. My Tablet has 64 GB of internal storage, so that's not an issue for me. I just hate going to the app drawer and flipping through 4 screens of apps is all! LOL!

    Must say, my favourite app at the moment is TuneIn radio.

    Also just installed the Tom and Jerry app. It has every episode of classic T&J available to watch.

    Hello. To start one thing if you would all applications of all languages.
    WStoreChoice.gif prefer 2.png Prefer.png

    Here is my new list test

    Amazon 2.png Fichiers.png Fichiers 2.png Lecteur.png Sybth.png Youtube Player.png YTP.png IMG_0049.PNG IMG_0050.PNG Google.png

    Amazon good app, very complete and usefull.

    SketchBook : Cool with an touch and free. It's an equivalent of paint for touch but it's still nice.

    Booking.com unnecessary because the website is more complete.
    Fichiers - 1.69€ probably the futur of Windows explorer. Possible improvement.
    Youtube Player Not bad but can be improved.

    WinZip - 6.49€ Offers many option if you would create, protect and send by mail a zip folder. Maybe usefull for some person but not for me.

    Animateit : fortunately it's free because very bad result. It's the only app "modern UI" for create the animate gif.

    Piano 8 : I like the piano. :)

    Synth - 2.99€ Limited for price but can be some nice trick.

    Xilophone 8 idem for for free.

    At last, the last app is splashtop streamer who permit to use Windows 8 on an iPad.

    Is deezer available on windows 8 apps? It is amazing on android. I don't understand what business model it uses because it provides all the music you could ever possibly want free of charge and in good quality streams.
