Windows 8/RT App Spotlight, Part 9

It's been a while since the last time I've posted one of these. Like me, developers have been busy. After digging through the Windows Store again this week, I return again with more amazingness in the form of ten new third-party apps for the Windows 8/RT app spotlight.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the other parts one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight of this app spotlight.

Liberty Book Reader

Free

Li4dx9o_medium

I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s no shortage of good ereader apps on the Windows Store. Liberty Book Reader, however, may very well be the best I’ve found so far.

ESPN

Free

Ngdfurk_medium

This is the app to have if you’re into sports—the crisp UI mixed with ever-evolving functionality make this one a must.

Daily Cyanide & Happiness

Free

Cyanide? Happiness? Kthx.

iFontMaker

$4.99

59ebyqn_medium

This app really shines as a dead-simple way to make awesome new fonts for you every need. There’s no trial, but it’s worth the price.

App Stars

Free

S9f3nyx_medium

Get this app. Check it every day or so. You’ll love it.

VBA8

$3.49

Bqrbo9j_medium

The lack of touch-friendly emulators is thinning on Windows 8. This GBA emulator works flawlessly in my experience, but don’t expect it to handle GBO or GBC games.

Dragon’s Blade

Free

Jd3mr2i_medium

The Windows 8 version of the awesome Windows Phone game. It’s a great classic-style RPG.

My History Digest

Free, subscription required for most content

Oohpulh_medium

Sometimes computers aren’t for just games, but for learning. The My History Digest app offers great articles on a host of historical topics and is still the best looking app I’ve seen on Windows 8.

GDrive Pro

3.99, trial available

Kpznebx_medium

Google isn’t supporting Windows 8 or RT? So. This app is likely better than whatever they’d come up with for their Google Drive services anyway.

Steam Tile

Free

Rdi7lxg_medium

Feel like pinning Terraria and Magicka to your Start Screen with a tile that looks like it belongs? Now you can.
