Hi, I will be getting my Ativ S today and I am concerned about some apps not present on WP.
Can you recommend your best alternatives?
1- TrustGo antivirus or just your favorite free a/v
2- Something to watch TV live (from Spain only) (only for spaniards this question I guess).
3- Best browser with good text reflow (to enlarge and still fitting the width)
4- Choose Browser
6- Call recorder (if it exists)
7-Feedly or RSS Demon
8- Google Books
9- Google Maps (the Google one is there full?)
10- Google Earth
11- Google Translate
12- Torrent Downloader
13- MX Player
18- File Manager
19- The best equalizer and volume booster you know
Thanks a lot in advance.

2. Sorry. I don't live in Spain.
3/4 Unfortunately, the alternative browsers on Windows Phone are just skins of IE.
5. Try using Pouch. (It's integrated into the WPCentral app, after all.)
6. There's an app called "Call Recorder", but it doesn't work on WP8.
7. Nextgen Reader might be the one you're looking for. Nextgen Reader | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
8. No app yet.
9. Use gMaps. gMaps | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
10. No app yet.
11. No app yet.
12. Use wpTorrent. wpTorrent | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
There's a paid-for version, by the way.
13. Hmm. Music+Videos is decent, but not really as good as Zune. *sobs*
14. The default photos hub should suffice.
15. None so far. (Try contacting Autodesk)
16. None so far, as far as I know.
17. I don't really know how to find this on WP.
18. There is no file manager on WP.
19. There should be one on your phone. Haven't encountered any Samsung WPs yet, though.

Thanks a lot. I'm sure it's going to be beautiful and faster, but I don't know how I will react to the missing apps. There seem to be too many missing with no alternatives.
I can't wait for the UPS guy ringing my bell.
