Watching ESPN alongside email
I'm a sports nut, and the ESPN app is a very good Windows app. Watching highlights using the app is a good leisure activity, but I still need to keep up with work email. Not that I watch video on ESPN when I'm working, mind you.
When I do use the ESPN app I usually do so with the Mail app open in a narrow pane on the left. That lets me see all email as it arrives when I'm not engrossed in watching my teams. Which I never do when I'm working. Honest.
Flipboard and Internet Explorer
The Windows version of Flipboard is a good way to watch out for tech news, while keeping up with my Facebook friends. My favorite way to do that is with Internet Explorer in the other pane using snap view.
This has the advantage of having links I tap in Flipboard open up in the browser, while keeping Flipboard open.
Email and Calendar
I frequently have to check my calendar based on briefing requests I get via email. The snap view setup you see in the image above is a common sight on my Windows tablet. It's very useful to see email and the calendar at once and I do this a lot.
