Anyone come across a good TV show management app? I use TVShow on my WP, helps me keep track of all the tv series I watch etc.

^Have you tried TrackSeries?

One thing to note though is that once you mark the latest episode as seen, it marks all previous episodes as seen as well. I'm not sure if it will implement marking "middle" episodes as unseen.

So happy this app came out quick, eBooks/audiobooks from libraries ftw. A but buggy, but works for most part.

Yeah, that's what I'm going with atm, it seems like it's got a scrolling bug though but no biggy.

I just might be picking this up soon. I'm finally teaching myself more than just small little bits of programming I've picked up over the years, so this will come in handy for projects I work on while I teach myself. :)

An annoyance with the Store - the ratings and reviews are independent by region. Makes no sense and also makes the Store look less active than it actually is.

There's a pretty steady flow of apps incoming. I don't know the exact numbers but feels like there's a couple of hundred new apps every day. Worldwide total I guess will hit 15,000 this weekend, with ~8000 apps in most markets.

Pulse is online and it is pretty great. Closer to the web version than iOS and Android, which is a good thing. Between this, News Bento, Nextgen Reader, Modern Reader, News360, Bing News etc. etc. Windows 8 is already the best platform for news reading. Most of these apps are beautiful and work wonderfully with touch and mouse alike.
