    Lately, I've been using the weather channel app just to see what's in store for the day/week. I'm curious to know what other apps people are using/finding useful?

    Use them every day, and they work just fine for me. (mostly NOAA weather stuff, some sports, etc.

    I voted "Most" but it's closer to 100% than it is to 50%.

    It's easy to keep track of baseball scores quickly while watching other programs.

    Ever since upgrading my router to a D-Link DIR-825, TV Apps have been excellent.

    Once I got some router settings set properly, I have no problems getting Apps to work on my HR20-700.

    I voted most, really in my case it's probably close to 95% available.

    I haven't explored them too much yet, but they have always worked when I have tried them.
