    LiveGaming if he's into Twitch
    Games are a safe bet of course.

    Download more games, more games!

    Set up XBOX Live on Windows Phone if he's into that sort of thing.
    Ask him what kinds of games he likes as well, so you have a rough idea of what you need to search for.

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't read the OP. Hey, I'm a bit hasty :P

    Why not have 6snap and 6tag? Take note, those kinds of apps are what may be popular with his peers.

    (I mixed paid/free)
    Halo: Spartan Assault
    Subway Surfers
    Temple Run 2 (similar to above)
    Asphalt 8, if it's available for 512 MB devices

    Of course, you should take a look with him to see what he fancies, i would prefer i had some input when I was 13. (although I was left alone with my ancient gadgets though then, yay)

    This list is for anyone, I find them handy universally.

    The #1 Toolkit app just recently featured on the homepage is handy for anyone.
    6snap if he's interested in snapchat
    Adobe Reader, might come in handy at times.
    Counters - counts stuff

    Messenger if he happens to use Facebook messaging a lot.

    Metrotube and/or myTube for YouTube
    Nokia Camera
    Office Lens if he finds it handy, probably not.
    ooVoo/Skype, if he uses those.
    Pandora could be nice for music streaming.

    Game: Spartan Runner, GBA8

    Voice Memos

    Espn Hub to keep track of sports, C/net to keep track of mobile news, Mobile Nations for all things mobile not just WP8, Weather app of course, Help and Tips to help him get the most out of his phone, Skype for all things messaging, Checkers, Chess, Pacman for a few quick games, Kindle for books, the list goes on and on.

    If he's into comics or manga, there are a couple of those readers too.
