    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.

    Quicken or Mint.com, a good DLNA client and a good media player that can play mpg files like mobo or mx player on the android.

    The official Skype preview is available for WP8 users, Skype | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    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:

    Photosynth is gone

    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'.

    Adobe reader was finally updated and was pretty speedy and nice to use.
