    You could try starting here: Top free apps | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    As a means of looking at different apps and seeing which ones come close to what you want.

    For the Google Keep, is there any reason why OneNote isn't a good replacement?

    Thank you. I have looked through the app store was just hoping for some possible user input on the ones i listed.

    Ive never used one note before, the company i work for is using office 2003, i will definitely look into it though.

    Thanks again

    OneNote is the way to go for notetaking. Its very comprehensive and will be preinstalled on any WP (its a MS app)

    Wallet is good for reward cards, credit/debit cards ect (another preinstalled one)

    There are many apps in the Marketplace for password keepers/organizers. However, I simply use OneNote for this too.

    Deekfit Gym gets great reviews for a gym app. It has a tracker for your workouts and other stuff too.

    While the media likes to keep bashing WP for a lack of apps, its not really true. Yes, it has less apps (still in the 100,000s) but what's there is mostly very high quality. I'm an ex-Android user too and ive never felt I was missing out. The overall user experience is much better with WP.

    Enjoy your 1520. I'm jealous!

    I will definitely try these out. After holding and playing around with the 1520 at the store i just ordered it, just from the short hour i spent with it there is no comparison to anything else i have used as far as the OS goes. Just my opinion but i'm very excited about what lies ahead with windows phones.

    I had blackberry and went to the galaxy note when it came out, didn't regret that move and moving to windows phone is an even smarter move.

    Thank you for the input!

    For keepassdroid you can use 7pass, the databases are compatible and stored at Skydrive.

    I am always amazed more people don't give OneNote a try. It has awesome functionality, really too much to list and I love being able to pin pages or notebooks to the start screen.

    I would recommend Fidme for reward and loyalty cards... it integrates with wallet app (preinstalled) and has a huge database of rewards memberships...

    For notes, nothing comes close to Onenote and there is also evernote and note plus.... I personally recommend onennote though...

    For fitness I like the entire series of Hardfox apps... I personally use their 6 pack and tabata apps... Just search for hardfox... Other favorites are 6 week training and Gym PocketGuide...

    For password manager I use password padlock

    All of the apps I suggested are free in the store... Enjoy...

    For password management try Sky Wallet, it even has SkyDrive integration. To replace key ring, go with FidMe. Hope that helps and welcome to WPCentral!

    These don't relate to the needs that you identified (although I will also put in a plug for OneNote), but to me they are absolutely crucial for enjoying my Windows Phone.

    1. "Maps" from developer Mohammed Adenwala (free). The Bing Map UI is hidden by default on Lumia phones, instead making you use the HERE Maps interface. As the latter seems sluggish, inefficient, and less intuitive than the former, I need an app that restores the Bing Map UI. That is what this app does.
    2. "Stop the Music!" from developer Boodev (free/0.99). When you play music on your Windows Phone, the song remains on your volume bar until you either a) play a different song, in which case that one will stay there; b) reboot your phone. This app stops the song from showing on your volume bar.

    So obviously you usr keepass darabases. Unless you want to transfer all your PWs to another app I recommend 7Pass. It has SkyDrive integration so you can download your .kdbx works completely offline too so once you download your keepass database you dont have to keep your keepass database on your skydrive in the cloud. Very secure. I HIGHLY recommend it for any Keepass user with WP

    JEFIT:
    BodBot is there for tracking multiple workouts, not just bodybuilding. Almost all of Runtastic's
    apps are currently in the Store. Endomondo is available as well, though I'm not sure that's exactly what you're
    looking for. ProGym is a little more comparable to JEFIT since it is mainly for logging strength training and bodybuilding
    workouts. BeFit is more of a workout generator than logger, but it does track your workouts.

    Befit
    BodBot
    Endomondo
    ProGym
    Runtastic

    KeePassDroid:
    There are a few passwork managers currently available but my app of choice is Enpass. Seriously the best at storing
    and syncing your passwords. Its cross-platform, with apps on Android, iOS, and BlackBerry 10. Its desktop app can also
    import from other password safes like 1Password, SPB Wallet, mSecure, eWallet, and of course Keepass. Though it doesn't
    have SkyDrive backup like other popular choices, it does provide backups to Dropbox. Though if you don't want your info
    in the cloud then you have the option of keeping everything offline, as I do. But you'd have to program each password should
    you want to switch devices. Totally worth the money. SplashID Safe is also available. As someone else suggested, there's also
    Sky Wallet which syncs to SkyDrive.

    Enpass
    Sky Wallet
    SplashID Safe

    Google Keep:
    We all know Google apps aren't available but OneNote is by far my favorite option on Windows Phone. Simple but handy
    with automatic syncing just like Google Keep and it comes pre-installed. Of course other options are the much more feature packed Evernote. There's also
    NoteBot with SkyDrive sync. There's also Papyrus if you intend to use a stylus with your 1520, its a nice note pad which
    jumped over from Android when the 1520 was announced. FastNote Pro is also a worthy mention, and its a beautifully designed
    app, also with SkyDrive sync. Write is a dead simple, clean note taking app though I'm not sure if it has SkyDrive sync or not.
    InNote is another stylus focused app for the 1520.

    Evernote
    FastNote
    InNote
    Papyrus

    Key Ring:
    Though I don't use this sort of app, a quick search brings up two popular and cross-platform options, FidMe and CardMobili.

    CardMobili
    FidMe

    Also, though not what you were here for, I implore you to download these apps from news sites to keep yourself updated with everything new and exciting in the Windows Phone (but also Windows/Xbox) world:

    WPCentral
    WinBeta
    Windows Phone Insider

    JEFIT Pro - No idea. My workouts consist of opening bottles of wine.

    KeePassDroid - Both 7Pass and MetroPass are compatible with KeePass password databases. I use both on my phone; one for my personal passwords and one for my work passwords, as I have different SkyDrive accounts at home and work, so to keep each synchronized separately this was the best solution. Both apps support synchronization via SkyDrive and Dropbox, but neither is perfect in this. 7Pass has conflict issues sometimes, and MetroPass requires manual re-downloading and uploading. I prefer the interface of 7Pass, but MetroPass seems to be getting more attention from its developer, and there's a "Modern UI" (aka "Metro") version of MetroPass for Windows 8 and Windows RT.

    Google Keep - Microsoft OneNote, especially if you use SkyDrive, because then you can access your notes on any Internet-connected device. There are OneNote apps for Windows desktop (Microsoft Office) , Windows Modern UI, Windows Phone, iPad, iPhone, and Android, as well as the OneNote web app (part of SkyDrive).

    Key Ring - Nothing available impresses me right now, but Windows Phone 8.1 will include this in its built-in Wallet app, so maybe just wait until that comes out in April this year.

    Well good move , get a 1520 Lumia...im jealous . I also want one. For workout apps, Adidas micoach and runtastic , fit bit are for me very useful and informative. For note taking . Number one is ONE NOTE. Using a Lumia is indeed powerful because its office apps are preinstalled like Microsoft office excel, word, SharePoint, office remote, box, camscanner, handy scanner, evernote, mint, SkyDrive, and a lot more. Email, windows live, Gmail, yahoo mail . Lync 2013, due, jongla, Nokia conference, Nokia chat, group me ....very useful for office use.. So don't hesitate, just get the Lumia 1520 ...yellow or red . Good luck and enjoy Lumia 1520 windows OS
