    Hi all,

    I just ordered my new HTC Trophy today (should get it tomorrow) and was wondering if I would get some suggestions from the WPCentral community as to what Apps to download or at least consider for my new phone.

    Just a little something about myself: I've used Blackberry and am currently still using my Palm Pre Plus... so I know about the apps that are carried across all platforms. I'm really looking forward to hearing about apps that unique to WP7!

    Thanks guys!

    United Nations News
    The Onion 7

    WikiPanda

    IMDb
    Adobe Reader
    Amazon.com
    Ebay
    Cocktail Flow

    The Microsoft YouTube app if you plan to view any YouTube video. And ProSports Scores for minute by minute updates of MLB, NHL, NBA and NFL games on a live tile. That's pretty unique. Sports Scores is another similar app. I use both.

    I dont see this in anyone's list but I think Pageonce is a really useful program. It keeps track of Credit cards and other things like bank balances, netflix account, and a bunch other things. Been using it in WM 6.5 days.

    Now if I can just get:
    A GOOD shopping list that syncs (trying Shopglider and so far not exactly the thing I want!)
    A Password manager that syncs (I WANT SPB WALLET FOR WIN 7!!!!) , but they wont say diddly about what they are working on.

    Then my phone would be complete!

    Evernote, WinMilk, OneNote for shopping lists work great.

    Last Pass is available if you use it. Hopefully more come soon.

    Try 1Password. It's only read-only now, but when it comes out of beta, it'll will cost and bring features like editing. I usually enter the passwords on my PC or iPhone 4.

    For shopping app try Smart Shopping. A robust that includes syncing/sharing lists. Designed for shopping unlike some of the other list type apps.

    Look no further than Sky Wallet for passwords. Syncs securely with your SkyDrive account and includes a free desktop client that also syncs with SkyDrive. So one app for all your WP devices and PCs. And a tool to import data from most popular electronic wallet apps.
