    Windows 8.1

    Need apps suggestions

    Hi there.

    I have recently bought a WIndows 8 Lenovo laptop and i love it so far. Having had two years of owning a Macbook i'm "back" to where i am more familiar with.

    I just need to ask about apps suggestions and alternatives to:

    1. Youtube - I found the "official" app on the Windows store a bit rubbish really. It's more of a stretched-out web version. Any good 3rd-party ones out there?

    2. Maps - I heard there is a dedicated Maps application on the store. Is this true? Any good 3rd-party alternatives?

    3. Streaming TV - I like watching sports especially Football, WWE Wrestling, Tennis, etc. Any good apps out there to download?

    4. Torrents - Any good torrent client you guys can recommend?

    Please advice. Thanks.

    Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

    I am a mac user myself and I just bought this desktop the other day, so I dont know about good programs.
    But I think for torrents , utorrent works just as good on my desktop as on my iMac/Macmini. Try it out!
