    I'd prefer official apps from Microsoft or Google or some other reputable brand. I don't want 2 download some app that some nobody hacker put in the app store.

    Can someone make some recommendations? Also, I am shocked my Lumia doesn't come with a voice recorder app pre installed because the text message
    Feature let's me attach voice notes. Very strange.

    Not sure about a voice recorder app. I use sky wallet for passwords. Its a good app and has a good interface. Plenty of entry fields.

    I'm not sure if you want to record the audio or do speech recognition. If you want the latter, just press and hold the Windows key, when the speech recognition starts, then say "Note" followed by your message. The phone will convert it to text and store it in a OneNote note on your phone.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. So annoyed windows doesn't have them pre installed with their own versions of those features.

    Voice recorder: really don't have a suggestion.
    Password manager: I use Password Padlock. Very good app. Plus, there is a Windows 8 version. Both the phone app and the pc app can sync to Skydrive to keep each other updated. Very good app. In the US Windows Phone app store: Password Padlock | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    I'd recommend Lastpass for a password manager. They have good apps for WP, W8, iOS, Android and Blackberry as well as extensions/add-on's for Chrome, IE and Firefox; and of course a web-based interface. Great password generator, the ability to have multiple log-in's for each site, secure notes, categories and a LOT more.

    While the desktop browser extensions enable auto-fill or even auto-login, keep in mind the browser on WP (like iOS) will not allow this. This is an OS limitation that applies to every password manager. You'll need to open the Lastpass app and copy/paste your password, or else use the app's built in browser (which works fine).

    I moved to LP a few years ago and could not imagine life without it. I like knowing that I have strong, unique passwords for every site- and can access them from any computer with a browser (or even offline if I choose).
