The new Stumbleupon is beautiful. Have to say, for all cross-platform apps the Windows Store versions are so much better looking than the iOS or Android counterparts. Now just needs some bug fixes and adding in missing feature, which is only a matter of time.

Nextgen Reader is great Google Reader client. Of course, as it's the first version, it has some bugs and maybe lacks some features but the UI is great and it seems to be the only app with Readability / Instapaper full support (it doesn't simply load their websites with article content).

My Explorer does the unthinkable - makes file management comfortable and easy on touch devices.

I have a BMI and weight calculator in the store. For 2 US bucks, you can unlock simple tracking (chart control cost me money, so I kind of want to recoup it). The calculator itself is free tho. Uses some US Navy formula, used during their checks up, to get your body fat. (Also, apparently BMI scales with young and old age, I'm about to fix it once I get decent references).

It's my own app but hey :)

Information about crimes in your area and info on where the investigation is up to.

LOL, there's actually a live crime database in the UK?

^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.


This app is awesome! Thank you for mentioning this!

Anyone using WeatherFlow? The live tile for the citys I've pinned never seems to update.

Yes, WeatherFlow and Bing Weather are the two weather apps I use. Updates just fine for me. Make sure they have background permissions. On a related note, the most popular mobile weather app, The Weather Channel, went live yesterday.

It does, weird. I don't get it. Maybe i'll just uninstall and reinstall it. See if that changes anything.

Does anyone know of any ebook reader apps that support .epub files with Adobe DRM? I've been looking through the Store but I haven't been able to find any.

The TrackSeries app is beautiful! It is a bit sluggish on my Surface RT though. Becomes unresponsive for a few seconds after I open a new page or open an episode. Anyone else having this issue?

It's a bit buggy right now after the latest update (around 2 weeks ago, iirc). Live tiles aren't updating real time as well. I'll just wait for the next update.

Well that's good to know. Hopefully the next update will fix it. Other than that, the app looks gorgeous!
