The new Metro apps try a friendlier approach to user interface than Windows is usually known for. Its travel features -- built on the back of Frommers.com content -- packages web content as if it were an inspirational app.

Those of you planning your next getaway can get a helping hand from Microsoft’s Windows 8 Travel app.
