A Detailed Overview of the Essential Windows 8 Apps


Windows 8 comes pre-installed with some basic apps like Mail, Photos, Music etc. to help users get started with this all new interface. I have been thinking of reviewing some of these default apps lately, but most of them were in the preview stage till the Windows 8 Consumer Preview edition.

Now with the RTM edition launched, these apps are no more in their development stage. Hence I decided to take some time out and share an overview of each of those apps in the bundle so that this article acts as a reference point for anyone looking to learn about this new feature of Windows 8.
