    While I don't in general use 'tasks lists' myself a friend does and swears by Tasks.

    I just the Mint app on the windows store. What's wrong with that?

    I'm happy to be wrong, but I don't see a Mint app anywhere, feel free to link it.

    - OneNote is fine for note taking; I am looking for more "to-do" functionality with scheduling and a clean concept of "this task is done"
    OneNote does have checklist ability, it's a button down below. If you want a schedule though then yes look elsewhere. The default calendar app though does have a todo column complete with schedule, reminders, and checklists to be completed.

    To be honest there are some really good quality apps in the store, but they are paid apps.

    I just saw that Bing rewards can be exchanged for money to spend on buying apps. If you have not already started using Bing rewards, as a windows phone user you should consider it.

    Anyone know if there is a nice "File Manager" type of program for WP8? Something I can use to actually "Browse" the phone's file system? It would be a nice thing to have for troubleshooting/"power-user" type of functionality.

    What problems are you having with Graffiti Radio? I'd love to get these fixed for you!

    Great post. Try Flashlight-X - I have a 920 and it doesn't crash. There is a free version (ads).

    Maybe I should try MetroRadio again. I found Graffiti Radio much better on WP7. Biggest gripe before was that if I paused earlier in the day, MetroRadio would not seemlessly pick up where I left off like Graffiti does.

    Great list! I too just moved from an iPhone4 to a Lumia 920. The only app I'm still looking for a decent replacement for is Logmein Ignition. Any suggestions?

    I would of been in the same situation as you, coming from the iPhone for to the HTC 8S but the sods at HTC crippled the phone with 1.3GB of free space. So I had to return it as the handful of apps I use wouldn't fit on :-(

    Hi I am new here and just got my phone yesterday. I searched in the store for Monkey Media but nothing comes up. Does it have another name? I also have an ipad and I am looking for a program where I can transfer my music from ITunes. Thanks

    Great original post, i would love to see a post similar to this for people coming from android. I will be receiving my yellow nokia 920 soon and would love a nice concise list of comparable apps.

    "I may, one day, miss the video out capability of the iPhone; hopefully a nice Play To DLNA app comes out soon"

    Can this be handled with just an app? Is the phone's hardware capable? Very curious, as this is one of the things I was unhappy about with my 920.

    Nokia already have a DLNA Play To app for their WP7 phones. Its working great and I've been using it to play music and videos from my phone to my Xbox while I'm using my PC for gaming. I don't know whether the WP7 version works on WP8 or not but there is no reason why such an app cannot work or ported to a WP8 device if it works on my WP7 Nokia Lumia 710 phone.

    I'm sorry, I confused DLNA with MHL. I found a MHL cable online that said it works with the Lumia 920 but I'm not sure if it's actually possible.

    ...I love my lumia 920 but trying to save a pdf from an email just filled me with rage and looking for a file manager since release has really made me realize that this phone is just a novelty.
    I have found that you can browse files using the Office app (well, Office-centric files and .PDFs if you have the PDF Viewer installed), but yeah, it would be great to find something I can use to browse/"Power Use" the file system with. :(

    TuneIn Radio is available for WP8, I have it installed and use it on my ATIV S and on the subject of Facebook have you tried the Facebook Beta, yes I know it has some issues but it's way faster than the standard WP Facebook app.
