Microsoft has spent an astounding $1.5 billion to promote their surface tablet operating system, however many apps are still not offered with the system.

  

Perhaps developer’s unfamiliarity with the system is the reason so many fundamental apps that most other tablets have are not included – including the Facebook app.

  

Other apps missing are Barns and Noble Nook app, Twitter, Pandora, Words With Friends, Spotify, Amazon, Pinterest, Yelp, and countless others.
