Bing TRAVEL - The 360o interactive pictures make it really cool

One of the apps I love most on Surface RT is the Bing Travel.

It's cool, fun with great travel reviews and deals finder.

I LOVE THIS: But the coolest thing on it is the 360 degree panoramic pictures. You pick a picture and in full screen, it shows the image as you move your tablet to left, right, top or botton. The tablet works as a windows to the scenario. It's really cool and  everybody I show this feature, gets very impressed.

MANAGING YOUR TAVEL: If you want to full manage your travel adding your fllights, hotel and car reservations, you should use WorldMate Apps. With this apps, you simple email the reservation confirmations from almost all airline companies and travel websites and it automatically creates to your Travel info and appointments. I will  review this apps soon.
