I just picked up my VivoTab RT and there's not a lot of talk about apps in RT. I'm feeling silly trying to sift through the garbage to get to good, useful apps. Does anyone have any suggestions for apps? What are your favorite apps? What do you use your RT tablet for?

I have a few unique suggestions.
DI.FM - A Digitally Imported Radio App - DI.FM app for Windows in the Windows Store
Deal Flux - Daily Deal Aggregator (Woot, 1SaleADay, etc) - Deal Flux app for Windows in the Windows Store
HackerNews Reader - Hacker News client - HackerNews Reader app for Windows in the Windows Store
Spent quite a bit of time making each app a unique and great Metro-Experience
Full disclosure; I'm involved development-wise with each one. Either way, take a look!Co-Founder of Quixby.com | Custom Computer building simplified.

National Rail app is good if you ever wanted to check out if the UK trains are delayed or cancelled :). On top of that I use:
NextGen RSS Reader
MetroPass for password security
Kindle for reading on the go
Microsoft Solitaire Collection
Onenote (I take photos of the text in a book in my phone, insert the pic into Onenote and then let it sync so I can view it later on the Surface).

Didn't this thread already exist? Good apps for Surface
Lots of great ones there. For me it's,
Armed! - crisp tower defense game (available on WP8 too). Play against computer or remotely against others.
DragonBox+ - super entertaining game for kids and adults that secretly teaches them algebra (seriously the best learning game I've ever seen)
Fitbit - to view your fitbit steps and sleep activity
Skype - great, updated version of the Skype client (the Win8/RT version is the best)
CascadeSkier - Ski resort conditions for those in the Pacific Northwest United States
Pulse - newsreader I use along with Discourse and News Bento
mobile.HD - view MKV files natively, either locally or streaming from a local network. Works with Music too!
Music Info - Best UI around and the absolute best music player I've seen for Win8/RT
gMaps Pro - Mapping and directions - including Google Latitude to view locations of friends sharing via Latitude

Reason is that I'm thinking about a Windows Tablet, but the Windows Store has me concerned. There is A LOT of crap in there, and even more crap pretending to be official Apps (pretty sure a lot of copyrights are being violated). I can't find most of these Apps in the Store, might be my region though.
I really rally want a Windows Tablet but I can't sell the choice for Windows to my wife if the Store's such a mess (not that I won't try). I have high hopes that the Store will improve though, and not just the Store contents, but also the search, which is pretty minimal.
