In Pictures: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

The delightful dozen: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

Hyper for YouTube YouTube is undoubtedly one of the most glaring Windows Store no-shows, and while dozens of YouTube players have sprung up in Microsoft's app store to try to fill the void, most are simple Web wrappers or other uninspired fare. Then there's Hyper for YouTube.

Hyper for YouTube rocks not only because it sports an imminently usable, incredibly attractive black-and-red design, but because it comes complete with bells and whistles like video quality options and YouTube Account support. (Yeah, it sounds basic, but that's just how lackluster Hyper's competitors are.)

The start screen is a bit basic, showing only the Most Popular and Favorite videos, but Hyper's Search charm support is top-notch. And don't tell Google, but the app lets you download videos, too

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
