    I like Zillow, great for browsing eye candy properties.

    Plex & Sling rule, though depending on what Hulu liveTV is like when it comes out of beta -- that could change... :cool:

    I'm still waiting for the true ala-carte service: 20 channels for $20, and I choose the channels -- premium services like HBO, Showtime, etc would be add-ons, but anything with commercials could be included in the 20-pak. Pipe-dreams are fun... :confused:

    Asphalt Racing (? can't remember the name-son likes this one)
    they also like the Disney channel apps

    as for games, I like:
    Leo's Fortune
    Solitaire

    I enjoy the:
    Lowes TV App
    Home Depot App
    Zillow

    Sling and HBO Go for me. I watch Nets games on Yes channel on Sling. So I've cut my cable subscription. And I subscribe directly to HBO Go.
    For the games I like Alto.

    We use it mainly to Infuse to play our ripped movies. And iTunes for movies.
    I would love to get those iTunes series also to Finland!

    CBS All Access - TV Series with No Commercials
    DirectNow - Live TV like News
    Channels - Live TV and DVR (for Shows not on Hulu or CBS)
    HBO Go - $5 with DirectNow.
    Showtime Anytime - HomeLand and Movies. Add On with Hulu
    Netflix - Original Series and Movies
    Starz - Moves. Add On with DirectNow.

    My favorite apps are my most used apps. WatchAid and QVC top the list. WatchAid is everything the TV app should've been. As for tv service apps I use Hulu and CBS All Access. Both are No Commercial plans. I also have Netflix.

    I watch a ton of YouTube but I hate the app. So I feel conflicted about listing it. But I use it so much that I'm listing it anyway.

    I don't game much on my tv because I prefer playing on my iPad mini and watching tv simultaneously. But if I had to choose I'd pick Asphalt 8.

    Infuse

    I signed up to Disney and Netflix but my TV doesn't have HDCP so not working. I can get a box that fixes that though apparently.

    Infuse and Disney Life - I don't really play any games on it, due to the remote (and none of them games seem good enough to justify purchasing a controller)

    Movies is one of my most used, but least favourite apps
