    I really like my new 1520 but there are two apps I am not finding replacements for as I try to move over from Android. I've searched pretty exhaustively, but I'm hoping I missed something.

    The first is RocketPlayer... While I can't explain my compulsion I have been rating songs in iTunes so long I cannot abandon the practice, and I cannot find any app that will sync iTunes ratings. I have considered getting a small iPod but I really would like to have everything on one device.

    The other is SMS Backup +. I love how this app makes all of the SMS messages visible in a folder in Gmail, even backing up pictures. I found an older app that seemed to do this, but nothing recent. I know Window 8 phone backs SMSs up, but I find the way they are viewed through Outlook a bit convoluted and unreliable. I also would not like to lose the ability to view old SMS messages on my new phone.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    I found out how to see mine from a post by Justin429 in this thread:

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...p-outlook.html

    "Click Messaging History.
    Press F6 (or click in the address bar)
    Press END
    Press BACKSPACE one time
    Press ENTER"

    See what I mean about convoluted? :-)

    Wow.. that was ridiculous. Had to remove the b, then hit the "sort by conversation" part... and even still it's hard to view them because each individual text is it's own "message"
