In Pictures: Top Metro apps for Windows 8 power us...
Although the creator of Calculator Free -- Digitalchemy -- has had trouble keeping its website up, no doubt preoccupied by the overwhelming demand for its Kindle and iPhone apps, this simple, colorful Metro calculator works like a champ. I particularly appreciate the way it looks when Metro snapped it to the side of the screen (see screenshot), making it much easier to keep at hand than the old-fashioned Windows desktop calculator. With a copy-and-paste capability that actually works, a Start screen tile that always shows the latest calculation result, editable input (until you press enter), and an abbreviated tape journal, it’s the calculator Microsoft should’ve included in Metro but somehow overlooked.
