Drawboard PDF
Put your pen and paper to the side. This productivity app is a handy tool for reviewing and annotating PDF files. You can use the annotation tools in Drawboard PDF to create new PDF files, mark up existing content, and save documents as compatible PDF files. You can test the app in a three-day free trial and, if you like it, purchase the full version for $10 on the Windows Store.

Meh...
I got through the first four or five clicks and then realised that actually, NONE of these fluffy bunny apps were either useful or important.

Re: Wunderlist, WolfRamAlpha
@sachinEE. Think about writing about your activities on wunderlist and at the press of a button, the information transfers from your PC to your mobile phone without you having to type it again in your mobile once you go out.

Re: Addictive
@kelly22: I don't think I would switch to WolfRamAlpha because it is directed for students and I am plenty happy with Quora. I did get Flipboard though. The feed could have had some tweaks.

Re: Addictive
@mak63 I found the same thing. The apps have been downloading and launching quickly on my Surface Pro, so it has been fun exploring the Windows Store. Hopefully things continue to run smoothly!

Going to the Windows Store is like going to Redbox. It's kind of addictive. Well, if you like movies that is.

In any case, I downloaded a few apps that the article mentions. Love it!

Re: Wunderlist, WolfRamAlpha
I debated including WolframAlpha in this roundup because it is geared towards students, but it's really a cool information hub. If you're not using it for work, it's a handy tool for doing research or simply learning more about different subjects.

Wunderlist, WolfRamAlpha
These two W's are hardcore apps for people like me. Although WRA is for students, I would love to check out this app for the naughty kids in my home. Wunderlist would be productive if Windows Connect is available.

FlipBoard
Fianlly a good workplace app. Often I get bored at work and since we don't have that much time searching out from the internet, I would love to have this app to browse the topics I love to read about.

I Love this app. It will help in reducing the stress at work. It also better that it gives you the opportunity to create your own.
