ModernMix – This app fixed Windows 8!
I have been playing with this tool for a few days now. It lets you spawn and run any “Metro” app on Windows 8 in a window on the desktop. Or run them natively as full screen as they normally work.
This – without question – is a killer app for Windows 8. The fact I can run the Email / Calendar / Music apps in windows makes them true replacements for the legacy windows apps or web site apps.
Very impressed and its cheap $5.00! I bought one license and have it on my tablet and my desktop.
Here’s an image of what it looks like when running Metro/Modern apps on the Windows 8 Desktop. This is the mail app and the built in weather app.
