New to Windows 8? Check out this video tutorial I made to help you get started with Windows 8. The video is meant to help you get started, but to truly get used to the new OS, you need to have hands-on time with it. Windows 8 is all about muscle memory. Continue reading
If you love listening to YouTube videos in the background, in cases of music or podcasts, for example, then you might have noticed a short-coming in the metro version of IE10 in Windows 8 and Windows RT. If you play YouTube videos or audio from, say, Pandora, and you switch away from IE to another app, all audio stops. To listen to web audio in the background you must use IE10 on the desktop. This is very annoying for tablets, like the Surface because the desktop is hard to use with touch. Luckily, we have an elegant solution for listening to YouTube in the background without going to the desktop. Meet YouTube RT.
The biggest reason for me to recommend this YouTube app over any other is because it keeps playing the audio even if you switch away from the app. Almost all other YouTube apps fail at multitasking this way. In addition, this app embraces the metro design language and has an overall polish to it. As an added perk, you can even download YouTube video for offline viewing! There are some other neat features that I detail in the Pros/Cons section later in the post.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so there are some screenshots!
As you can see from the screenshot above, you have various download options. In addition, can add videos to your “Now Playing” playlist for a lean-back experience, change streaming quality, or exit in or out of fullscreen mode. We’ll get to that in a bit.
Here, the video keeps playing even when I switch away from the app. You can see the name of the video and the uploader when you use your hardware volume keys while in another app. Very handy.
Another cool thing this app does is it keeps playing the current video even when you browse YouTube or do a search. On the screenshot above, notice the mini playback controls while I am browsing.
Finally, here’s a screenshot of playing video in non-fullscreen mode. Here, you can view video description, related videos, rate and comment on the videos, etc. You can also click on the uploader icon and check out their latest uploads, subscribe, and other standard stuff. There are a lot more that I didn’t take a screenshot of, including the download manager.
Now, before going any further, I will let you know this is a paid app, with a free trial option. At the time of this writing, the app costs only $2.49. Note that I will take extra care when recommending a paid app for obvious reasons. I want our readers to be confident that you are paying for quality products. I always recommend trying the app before buying, and will rarely recommend apps that doesn’t offer a free trial. So go ahead and try the app before deciding if you want to buy it.
Finally, let’s summarize the pros and cons.
- Good YouTube streaming experience, with multiple streaming quality options
- Play YouTube video in the background while working on other apps.
- Video keeps playing when you browse YouTube; offers search suggestions.
- Download YouTube videos in various qualities to your PC
- Connect with your Google Account to see new subscriptions, favorites, watch history (They also appear on your live tiles)
- Like, comment, and favorite apps. Make playlists and watch multiple videos in a row automatically
- Your settings syncs with your Microsoft Account. No need to reconfigure when installed on a new PC.
- Well implemented Snapped view
- Paid app (try before buying)
- Occasional crashes
- Videos are cached. They take up large disk space over time. The only solution I found is to uninstall and reinstall the app to clear the cache.
There you have it. You can download this app from the Windows Store! YouTube RT

Since we are talking Business Apps dropping in the Store today, (see the SAP App earlier today) here is the first App in the Store from Resco, a business App and its free? Most of you from the Windows Mobile Timeframe will definitely remember as they were one of the de-facto software developers in the years of yore. Now they are moving their Mobile CRM app up to the Windows MX App world. The App is solidly built and packed with features. Let the App speak for itself:
IMPORTANT: For full experience, the Resco Mobile CRM app requires an access to Dynamics CRM server (4.0 or 2011, on-premise/online). Without this access you will be only able to work with the local demo database.
Resco Mobile CRM app is a client for Microsoft Dynamics CRM that allows accessing your data anywhere and anytime. The app works in online or offline mode and it does not require any middleware or additional server – just install it on your device, connect directly to your Dynamics CRM and use it with your real data. You can access/create/delete/modify all data.
This app rapidly boosts the productivity of sales people and field service technicians. Now they can create new orders or quotes, access all invoices, accounts and contacts, schedule the appointments and many others.
Online/Offline Mode – switch between online and offline mode or select one of three modes the app will work in after launch: Always online / Online when connected to Wi-Fi / Manual mode
No Middleware needed – insert Dynamics CRM URL and login credentials and you are ready to go
Custom entities support
Advanced filters and sorting
Integrated Bing Maps

And so the Nook App finally drops in the Store. I blogged this first with the Keynote of Windows 8 launch that we are getting the Nook App in the Store. My apologies for bringing the news late as the app dropped in the Store while I was at work. As to be expected of an App in which Microsoft has a personal invest, it is a superbly built app, fully featured and leaves the Kindle App in the dust. Basically the Kindle app is a joke at the moment. For an app that was built for the Metro experience, it was poorly implemented, it has the worst paging experience of any app in the Windows Store. You have to look carefully before you see you’ve turned a page. If you blink you’ll miss it. So, here is B&N showing off the Nook, my question is how much of the App was built by B&N, I will put my money on it that MS practically wrote this app. Just look at the size, ticking 15Mb, that’s a lot of feature packed into an MX App. With this app, the value of your Surface and Windows 8 devices just gone up! For the description of the App itself, I’ll leave it to Barnes & Noble as follows:

Here is Sammy joining HP in the Store with a dedicated app for their Printer Products. I must confess I am surprised at the quality of the app. For those people complaining that Metro Apps (or MX Apps as I am recently calling them) could not be made to do anything serious, you need to have a look in the Store for Apps like this. I just twitted a few minutes ago the first OCR App in the Store for example. So we are seeing more and more serious apps as Devs are getting the hang of MX APP Development. The App is really full featured, and they are claiming it is for all Samsung Printers, no matter which model you have. So, you may be a lucky customer if you have one of Sammy’s printers. Here is the full description from the Store:
Samsung Printer Experience is an application that lets users manage and control Samsung printers and MFPs. With this free application’s simple user interface, users can easily scan and print with Samsung multifunctional printers. Samsung Printer Experience brings further flexibility and convenience to users by supporting several advanced settings and status notifications, as well as ordering supplies and viewing troubleshooting guides.
Monitor the status of your printers and show printer information
Features allow for troubleshooting, supplies ordering and configuring your printers
Advanced settings allow users to configure machine settings, network settings, address book (for MFP only) and maintenance.
Scan directly from your MFP and save images as JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP or PDF with useful features like rotating, flipping, or cropping, etc.
New features allow for single or multiple image selection automatically
Pin to start for quick scanning and browsing images stored on your PC.
If you are one to the lucky ones with Sammy’s printer, go ahead and download this app via the Source link.

Let me just start by saying that I am very disappointed in Twitter. Well, we know that with Twitter’s updated version of the API, new developers are limited by Twitter’s new and strict API rules. As I understand it, the new API only allows up to 100 thousand user tokens, after which a program trying to access additional user tokens must consult twitter for permission. This means for third party twitter clients, it can only have up to 100 thousand registered users without needing Twitter’s approval. The latest victim of this new enforcement appears to be the very popular Windows 8 app, Tweetro. Continue reading

Here is another run of the News from the Windows Store. First my sincere apologies for missing the news run last weekend, I just couldn’t catch a break, had to go native and please the family. Coupled with an absorbing project at my day job you can understand my spottiness also online, via Twitter etc.
So here we are two weeks after General Availability, as Microsoft love to call their public deployment of their wares, and the Store is still waxing strong. As you can see from the Stats above, we grew 3656 apps in two weeks. Divide that by two and you have the per week number. Question is can Microsoft keep this momentum up? Time will tell. You can also see the exponential growth on the graph. Funny thing is, there are bonehead bloggers out there bad-mouthing the new platform for lack of apps. There you have almost 10000 apps, and how many does an average person have on their device again? Of course you can argue most them are chaff, yes, so it is with all App Store that I know as of today. Its all about Quality Apps. There are quality apps in the Store right now and more are still coming.
I will not burden you by listing all apps that debuted these past two weeks, but the Quality ones you will see I have already blogged on this blog, and the other that are worthy of mention are listed here below. I am sure you’ll find something for yourselves in the list. In the category of news is the return of the Trackage app in the Store, it was pulled for some reason, now it is back. Also HP has decided to make their Windows 8 Introductory Demo app available to everyone. You can now download the app in the Store on all devices and not only on HP devices anymore. Flixster also made news this week by releasing a major Update that fixed most issue with the app. I refused to blog/mention the app because of various issues with the app. Now, the app is fully usable so you can go download it. My personal favorite this two weeks have to go to the two Apps released by Telerik in the Store. Please see my post about them on this blog.
Talking of Chaff in the Store, have you also noticed that our friends from India own the Windows App Store? There are more Apps from India than every other localized countries combined in the Store. The Windows Store is in this way of much more value to someone from India than any other part of the world. This should be an incentive for other countries to catch-up. Let kids learn to code for crying out loud! Anyway, the number of apps now in the store has reached an impossible level that it is humanly impossible to be mentioning each app. I am now very selective in what I blog or mention, so if you see me blog an App here on this site, you can be sure it will be worth your money. That doesn’t mean I will not miss some apps, so please I welcome your suggestions if you think I have missed some killer app that you really love.
Back on the Stats. Have you noticed Entertainment and Education Categories left Games in the dust the past weeks? Simply incredible if you ask me. Education takes the crown, seconded by Entertainment and Game came on a measly third. The Education increase can be attributed to a few companies releasing books as Apps filling the Store like there is no tomorrow. Good for number chest-thumping for Microsoft, but makes it difficult to see the forest from the trees in the Store. I am still watching the Store like a hawk for the big Apps announced in the GA Keynote. ESPN is still not in the Store for example. I’ll keep you posted. Pardon me that I didn’t have time to collate the Paid/Free Apps numbers this week, I owe you one on that for next week.
On that note, I’ll leave you with these Notable Apps that I didn’t have time to blog but worthy of your attention:

Here is another Reference App from Telerik in the Store. For those of you that doesn’t know Telerik, they are a company that caters to the needs of Devs all around the World, most especially in the area of Metro (MX) App Developments.

OK, here is another app I’ll recommend to any of you Video Addicts out there. If you spend your better part of the day on YouTube watching the same videos over and over again. You might as well download it locally and watch it till you drop without incurring the wrath of your ISP or pay through your nose with 3G Data cost. The little gem works as advertised, I was a bit skeptical initially so I decided to give it a spin before I recommend it to you guys. What do you know, it actually downloaded all my favorite K-Love Music Videos I threw at it without a glitch. It queues them up nicely and downloads them on the background so that when you even switch away from the app, the download still continues. I suspect it is using BITS transfer service. Awesome. You can choose you favorite file format to download, *.mp4, *.webm etc.
The app is not much of a looker, but that is not why you’ll download it right? As long as it gets the job done, you’ll be doing the looking in your video player trust me.
The App is free of charge, supported by unobtrusive ADs. So go ahead, download the app now and add it to your toolset via the Source Link.
