    Since you're giving me permission, I'll add Audiocloud, Monument Browser, EVA, Spotify, and Awesome Tube.

    I had to think about it but those are what I always open and reach for.

    Edge

    Right now Loco Music because Groove uses too much battery.

    I also use other apps like Pandora, iHeart Radio, podcast, Audible, ProShot, but those are the ones I use every day. I probably use the phone app the least, but by necessity it is the most important. So in all actuality, I have a multifaceted audio/video media device with voice and text communication capabilities!! LOL

    Haha! For me, I kind of love the indie apps on this platform a lot and I miss them when I use my iPhone.

    First party apps are cool too but I don't know, the indie apps are more fun for the other apps I'm looking for aside from Instagram, GroupMe and Slack of course.
    I can't believe that I forgot about ProShot. I love it too.

    So what's your take on the Tweet It! app, better than the official or similar too. Does the app get updated regularly? Tried searching web about it but most info is outdated by several months, and app store seems to omit dates when apps in general were last updated... Could be blind on the latter so if we are someone please enlighten me.

    Non core/non Microsoft Basically 3rd party only top 5 (edit: Ok I totally failed at nailing down 5)

    1) Whatsapp
    2) IM+ Pro
    3) Instagram
    4) myTuner Radio Pro
    5) NextGen Reader
    --- not super functional standalone but serves a big purpose for me in terms of information at a glance ---
    6) Tiles for Outlook (had to add it cause it's such an awesome tile and it does just that, all i want)
    7) Appointile I still use it just to have a nice calendar list on the lock screen.

    Games I play - just enough of a distraction without being burdensome on time :)
    1) Pocket Tanks
    2) World Domination
    3) Alphajax

    Edit: I avoided these cause theoretically I could make do with webpage, but I do use them all the time
    1) Sofascore (NHL hockey follower)
    2) NHL Scores & Alerts (I need a better one to follow all the stats for my fantasy pools!) :)

    I'm new to WP. Only got three must have apps thus far, Skype, Tunein and WC. Need something to manage my email better, a Wikipedia reader, and route tracking app.

    There should be an app that keeps a list of apps on your phone and tracks their usage on your phone. I bet, if this app was available on apple and google phones, most people would find that they don't "use" 100s of apps much rather 1,000s.

    3. Nextgen reader
    4. Adobe reader
    5. 8zip
    6. WhatsApp
    7. Slim for Facebook
    8. 6tag
    9. Client for YouTube
    10. Monument browser
    More than 5, but good apps nonetheless.
