    Good Technology - Until it's updated for WP8, we can not purchase/use new WP devices for our very large company. I've had to tell 14 people to return their 920's just this morning.

    Shuffle Party - a free Xbox Live game by Microsoft surprisingly is missing.

    I was going to say TuneIn but I see that's already covered.

    We're talking about apps that were already on WP7 and now not on WP8. That's just an app wish list. Check out Pageonce for a Mint alternative.

    Since you have an inbuilt pdf reader, I don't really see the necessity of adobe reader in WP8

    I know you are talking about existing apps, but since you mentioned mint.com, I put out a 3rd party beta mint app. Details here:

    I see that several of my favorite apps are missing:

    - Photosynth
    - Bing Translator
    - Skype (a full version that allows you to delete your history)

    All of the above are coming (confirmed by their respective teams/blogs)

    There is a PDF reader app for WP8 pushed out by Nokia, works well. Spotify is coming soon as well.

    Some apps that use Nuance (Dragon Speech/Dictation)...have issues when doing Text to Speech (Say Mail, Ask Ziggy),etc.

    That's it for my 'high priority list'.
