The anticipation the techies and geeks experienced since June 2012 of Windows RT Tablets was alas, silenced. The Windows line of tablets failed to turn iPad and Android tablet users to their side. What was it that made the Windows tablets fail? Was it the design? Was it the poor user experience? Was it the cost?

Most people who have experienced using the Windows tablets say that there is really nothing exciting about using them. They say it is much like using a Windows PC or laptop, so there's nothing new to look forward to when using it. A good number of users also complain of the programs or apps that are included or they could download with the tablet. Unfortunately, the Widows tablets just didn't take off.

Much like the Windows phones that did not really take off as grandly as expected, many think Andoid and iOS gadgets still have better apps, and they would want some of the apps available for them to also be available for download on the Windows RT platform. This may be a difficult thing to achieve, but for fanatics of the iPad charging station, here are four apps that they think sets then apart from other tablet users:

Skype
One of the apps that would make the RT tablets suitable for turning into a mobile office is Skype. A lot of tablet owners use this not just for chatting or calling friends but also for business and work. This would come easy as Microsoft runs this. It would be odd not to include this in the line of the RT apps.
Evernote

Evernote is another app that would be great to have on the Windows tablet. Even if Microsoft has the Skydrive cloud support, a lot of existing tablet PC users are already used to the Evernote cloud system. If Windows app developers can manage to sneak in Skydrive cloud support on Evernote, or even make their own version of the app, then that would be great.

Kindle App
Having the Kindle app on the Windows tablet would make it an even more useful device. Currently, Windows phone owners can download the Kindle, Bookviser, or Adobe PDF Reader to serve as their e-book reader apps, but the device does not have a pre-installed e-book app. For a tablet PC, having this app is a must, so Windows app developers better get ready.
Google Chrome Browser
Giving access to the Chrome browser might be a suicidal act for Microsoft since it already has IE pre-installed in its tablet. However, given the popularity of this browser, they might be able to draw in more buyers. If they could get IE to perform like chrome, then maybe users wouldn’t complain too much.
There are a lot more iPad apps that would be great to have on the Windows tablet, if you consult those that sell iPad charging station and other iPad peripherals. But then, everything remains to be seen until we have the tablet in our hands.
