Windows RT: the essential apps

Windows RT: the essential apps
If you haven’t heard it by now, let us make it extra clear - Windows RT is not the full Windows 8. No, it won’t run Photoshop, Dreamweaver, or whatever traditional Windows program you throw at it. Except for Microsoft’s Office package that comes pre-loaded.

Knowing this alone will save you plenty of confusion. But still this won’t answer the burning question: what apps does Windows RT have then, and which ones should I install right after getting it?

There is no universal recipe, but we’ve narrowed down 10 apps that should come handy for pretty much everyone out there. You might still feel like you are in a ghost town in the Windows Store after you download them, but at least one thing is clear - this time around, unlike with Windows Phone, developers will just have to start cranking up apps soon. We just see no way all those tablets, laptops and desktops would be left without their attention. So just give it some time.
