    My favourite app at the moment is Xbox Music. I love it because the work really well with my Xbox Music Pass and the interface is great. It is also especially good when syncing my collection seamlessly with my Lumia 920.

    I like SmartGlass. I got quite passive-aggressive with my Kinect voice control – so it keeps my blood pressure down.

    I have two favourite Apps, Skype because it is swish and I also like OneNote, mainly because I love the wheel menus, brilliant way to use it on the Surface.

  4. Lee Phillips says:

    Khan Academy is my favourite, the app itself is really fluid and all the tutorials on there are really interesting!

    My Sad true favourite app is the Microsoft Posterpedia app. All the architecture of all the major products, just waiting for the rest of the server 2012 ones to be published.

    When teaching these products it really does help delegates to be able to understand the architecture better when they all work together.

    Cool app!

    I have 2 favourites at the moment, the first is OneNote, I just love how my notes can be synced across all my devices with no effort. I also love Code Writer as I can get a coding fix on my Surface RT!

    I really enjoy the Netflix app. The Kindle app is also kind of cool, the text is so easy to read and follow on a large laptop or tablet screen.

    However the new 4OD app is fast becoming a favourite, it works well through with the Windows 8 interface.

    Definitely OneNote, fast replacing Evernote as my preferential scribble pad.


  9. John Seaman says:

    Angry Birds Star Wars.  Do I really have to explain why 🙂 Fantastic game


  10. OneNote both desktop and 'Modern UI' best note taking bar none and MetroTwit snap view is excellent
