I love to listen to international radio and the tablet is a great way to do it. This app is one of the first apps I install on any platform and the Windows 8 version is good.
You can stream audio from lots of radio stations all over the world, or find your favorite local stations. The interface is very attractive and easy to use with simple touch operation.
If you have a tablet you must get the Netflix app, and Windows 8 is no exception. This app is gorgeous and a fun way to work with the online Netflix service.
You can even watch your favorite video stuff on you Windows tablet.
This is not a Windows 8 Metro app but is worth mentioning. Installing the Chrome browser to the Windows 8 desktop gives full Chrome functionality, including extensions.
Note that if you make Chrome your default browser on Windows 8, you lose the ability to easily access the Metro IE browser. It seems Microsoft has chosen to remove the Metro IE browser from the start screen and even the All Apps screen if you make Chrome your default browser. The desktop IE browser is still accessible but not the nice touch-friendly Metro IE browser.
