    I wish Google would get some stuff on there. Google maps, Google voice, etc.

    The only apps I use in metro are Netflix, photos, and weather. I feel like everything else is just easier to use the real websites. Facebook has metro apps already.

    Hulu, SmartGlass, Mail, Calendar, Weather, SkyDrive are pretty much all I use these days. Most stuff can be done through browser so not too much need for apps.

    Mail, Calendar, Weather, SkyDrive are all easily done in browser too. So basically just Hulu.

    The benefits of a real browser which gets overlooked by most people/reviewers.

    This is the huge advantage windows tablets have IMO. The only programs I like in "app" version are things like Google maps which are better in app form due to being used while mobile. It makes you realize the sacrifice made using dumbified "apps" all these years.

    The only app I really need is the Kindle app.

    The rest are just the default Metro apps, pinned websites, a couple games, and shortcuts to software on the Win7 desktop

    Apps that replicate website functionality are redundant on a tablet.
