    I've been test-running lots of apps lately, to see which ones would work best with the most effective and usefull features...and most of all, free.
    I do pay for some apps btw, and am in for supporting the developpers, as their work must be able to continue...but for some ppl, there is no other option but use free apps, so for THEM, I would like to pass this gesture.

    Of each app I'm listing, I've used several alternatives to perform the job, and these came out on top (for me) :

    Yes there are a lot of great free apps out there. Thanks for sharing this list. But I did notice that you forgot one very important and very good app. The WPCentral app!
    WPCentral | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    Yes, there's a 99 cent price on it, but the free trial is unlimited. If you can support Jay by buying the full version, you'll get a few extra features!

    Thanks for the list! BTW, I think Adobe Reader is a better alternative for PDF Reader and I didn't know TTPod was available in WP (had used it in Symbian earlier) so thanks again! ;)

    Yes, it actually is now, because by now Adobe can also open files on SD...
