    Hey All,

    Another moving over from apple here :) I am getting the Lumia 800 (i know the new ones are available soon however on tight budget)

    Hopefully it will be a speedy move as i'm already using windows 8 on my pc, so am familiar with the OS. I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice about decent apps?

    Welcome to WPC and congrats on making the switch to WP!

    WP7 is still an awesome platform, regardless of whether WP8 being out.

    Apps that I have (don't use many though):

    • WPC (Windows Phone Central) - News & Forum access
    • eBay
    • ESPN (both Nokia's & ESPN ScoreCenter apps)
    • Evernote - my favorite for cloud based note syncing
    • Flixster - find out what movies are out and the times they're playing
    • iHeartRadio - radio
    • IMDb
    • Netflix
    • Nokia Apps - City Lens, Drive, Maps, Music, Trailers & Transit
    • PhotoSynth - Panaroma + Social networking twist
    • SoundHound - Music identifier. I like more than Shazam.
    • Stop the Music! - you'll need this if you listen to music on your phone
    • WhatsApp - instant messenger
    • Weave - another news aggregation app.
    • Zite - like weave. enjoy it more than Flipboard.
