Toolbox for Windows 8 Windows 8 isn't exactly bristling with little tools and applets, but this app is: It offers a Web browser, calculator, world clock, stopwatch and more. Unlike typical Windows 8 apps, these mini-apps don't hog the whole screen; you can run up to six of the tools on your screen at once.

Dictate voice notes, doodle, check the weather, see what's up with Facebook and more -- all at the same time. You can also build separate toolsets so you can call up a suite of them with a tap or click.

The app currently offers 11 tools, with more on the way, according to the developer.
