Huh...I haven't seen that usage scenario really come up. If anything I've generally seen one monitor dedicated to older style WinApps and one dedicated to Metro style stuff. I haven't really seen an issue with that usage scenario.
Any examples of where this would come in handy, with some specific usage scenarios?

By snap do you mean that almost useless in 80% of apps mode where you can make one app a quarter of the size?
One example I can think of it doing some research with IE10 and wanting to take notes with Onenote. I would have to constantly switch apps using alt-tab or the graphical app switcher hot corner.
I know I could use the desktop version of IE10 but usage case still stands.

Uninstall the game, then go back into the store and look at games/apps you haven't installed.
Fruit Ninja was updated into a paid app, which causes the problem on the update. Try uninstalling, go to the Store, go to Your Apps, and re-install it from there.

Appreciate the suggestions, but I should have been a bit more detailed - I can't uninstall the App. It doesn't show up on the Start Screen, or in the Apps list so there's no way for me to uninstall it through the GUI. I checked in PowerShell and it shows installed twice, with the same "PackageFullName" value but it won't even let me uninstall it from there.
I was able to install the app on my Windows 8 desktop without issue though, so I'm pretty sure the problem is my tablet just thinking that it is installed when it really isn't. I might have to remove the app files manually , but that's a really bad experience, something I hope we don't have to get used to.
(Hey Shane, how's it going man? Been a long time since Winstock )

How does the usage case still stand if there is a way to do what you are asking that is supported?
Oh, and I just did Snap with OneNoteMX and IE10 Metro...you can have either be the smaller snapped item, and both work...so mind trying with something else?

Shane, I think you know what we think of your usage scenarios...guy simply asked why he can't run an two RT apps on two monitors at the same time.
