gMaps

You may have heard of a useful navigation tool known as Google Maps. It's not on Windows 8. The handy-dandy third-party gMaps app is, however, and it delivers everything you expect from Google's nearly ubiquitous map service, including traffic information, public transit routes, bicycling routes, weather overlays, and a choice of street view or satellite view. Note that Windows 8 has a built-in Bing map application, but it isn't nearly as feature-packed as gMaps is -- or, more important, nearly as accurate.
