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

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

The ESPN app The ESPN App doesn't have the world's most innovative name, nor does it offer any particularly unique features. In fact, it performs exactly as you'd expect an official ESPN app to act—but that's a Good Thing for sports buffs.

ESPN's Windows Store offering includes up-to-the-minute scoring updates for a wide swath of sports, news a-plenty, and a big selection of eye candy in the form of videos and still images. Plus, it syncs with online myESPN accounts and packs deep pinning capabilities, allowing you to pin Live Tiles for your favorite teams to the Windows 8 Start screen. Even ESPN Insider content is free in-app for a limited time. Seriously, it's hard to ask for more.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
