Windows 8 tablets are great tools for working with PDF documents. PDF Touch takes that a step further with a touch-optimized interface that supports pinch/zoom which comes in handy. It is a PDF viewer and editor that allows marking up documents with a finger tip.
PDF Touch really shines when used on a tablet with pen support. Marking documents is outstanding with a pen and signing documents is natural with pen in hand.

MyRadar Weather Radar
Urban dwellers know how important it is to keep up with weather conditions, especially if rain is in the day's forecast. Few things are as bad as getting caught unprepared for rain and it's common to check the weather before heading out for the day.
MyRadar is not a fancy weather app, the Bing Weather app included with Windows 8 is quite good at that. No, MyRadar only shows the rain forecast on a graphical animated radar map. It's touch-optimized, supporting pinch zooming and tapping anywhere on the map to change the center of the radar.
Note: The area had a lack of rain so the image above doesn't show any activity. When there is rain in the area it does quite a good job showing it, the reason for its inclusion in this collection.
