Hi all,

I just ordered my new HTC Trophy today (should get it tomorrow) and was wondering if I would get some suggestions from the WPCentral community as to what Apps to download or at least consider for my new phone.

Just a little something about myself: I've used Blackberry and am currently still using my Palm Pre Plus... so I know about the apps that are carried across all platforms. I'm really looking forward to hearing about apps that unique to WP7!

Thanks guys!

Here's my basic app rundown (no games listed just regular apps):

News360
BBC News
WPCentral
Windows Phone News
Tech News Now
USA Today
United Nations News
The Onion 7

WikiPanda
Send to WP7 (uses plugin on most browsers to send webpage to your phone with one click)
Flixster
IMDb
Adobe Reader
Amazon.com
Ebay
Cocktail Flow
Craigslist A+
ESPN Scorecenter
Facebook
Flickr
Geocaching (Groundspeak version)
FML
Home Depot
Insider
Lastpass (if use)
KBB.com (kelly blue book)
last.fm
tunein radio
Lazyworm Youtube app (or supertube...I prefer lazyworm)
Netflix
OpenTable
Prime TV
Shazam
Twitter Client (I use Seesmic)
Sat Rad Player (if use xm/sirius)
Weather (the weather channel app) or Weatherbug
Yelp

The more unique stuff is whats built into the OS like facebook integration, office, zune music player, xbox gaming center ect. And of coarse the unique UI throughout.

The Microsoft YouTube app if you plan to view any YouTube video. And ProSports Scores for minute by minute updates of MLB, NHL, NBA and NFL games on a live tile. That's pretty unique. Sports Scores is another similar app. I use both.

How about Pageonce?

I dont see this in anyone's list but I think Pageonce is a really useful program. It keeps track of Credit cards and other things like bank balances, netflix account, and a bunch other things. Been using it in WM 6.5 days.

Now if I can just get:
A GOOD shopping list that syncs (trying Shopglider and so far not exactly the thing I want!)
A Password manager that syncs (I WANT SPB WALLET FOR WIN 7!!!!) , but they wont say diddly about what they are working on.

Then my phone would be complete!

Evernote, WinMilk, OneNote for shopping lists work great.

Last Pass is available if you use it. Hopefully more come soon.

Try 1Password. It's only read-only now, but when it comes out of beta, it'll will cost and bring features like editing. I usually enter the passwords on my PC or iPhone 4.

For shopping app try Smart Shopping. A robust that includes syncing/sharing lists. Designed for shopping unlike some of the other list type apps.

Look no further than Sky Wallet for passwords. Syncs securely with your SkyDrive account and includes a free desktop client that also syncs with SkyDrive. So one app for all your WP devices and PCs. And a tool to import data from most popular electronic wallet apps.
