    Just bought a Lumia 928 from someone on Facebook. Updated it to 8.1. Love Cortana! Not using it as my daily driver just yet, still using my LG g2. The lack of apps makes it hard to switch completely. But I really like the OS. Any suggestions on apps and tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

    It would help if you told us what apps you use.
    EDIT: Oh and welcome to WP!

    Well if you're into Social apps go check out Rudy Hyun ( I think I speed it correctly) in the all store he made alternatives for Snapchat, Instagram, Vine, etc.

    Welcome to WPCentral. Good to see that you have given Windows Phone a try and you are liking it. Gradually you will get accustomed to it. There are several good apps available to download. What is your taste ?

    Thanks for the quick replies. I use a lot of Google Apps, another app called invoice2go. Like I said I really like the OS and Cortana is great.

    MetroMail for Gmail (and others) unless the stock app works for you.
    Metrotube/myTube for YouTube.

    Chech integrated and preinstalled apps carefully first before You open store. Google account integrates fine and setting up mail, contacts and calendar is easy.

    Welcome. Gmail, contacts and calendar works fine. No luck with Hangouts or YouTube. Although myTube and MetroTube work well.
    Facebook Beta from MSFT is much better than Facebook App.
    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    I am a heavy google drive user with my two businesses. Is there an app that plays well with google drive? Or does anyone have any experience switching to onedrive? I've been swapping my sim out after work and using the 928. The more I use it the more I like it. Thanks for the fast replies.

    Log into the Google Drive account
    Use a little-known tool called Google Takeout to create a personal .ZIP drive of all existing data
    Unzip the file on the proper device and simply drag and drop the contents into Microsoft OneDrive
