    I just placed an order for Lumia 1520. I'll have it in 2-3 days. Meanwhile I'm hoping you guys will suggest some good apps to install. I've already compiled a list of apps.
    1) Whatsapp & FB
    2) PayTM
    3) IRCTC
    4) TOI
    5) mytube or metrotube (which ever allows download of videos from youtube for offline viewing)
    6) Makemytrip
    7) Redbus
    8) Mollyplayer
    9) Adobe Reader
    10) Remote Desktop (any good alternative for this?)
    11) mynotes or evernote
    12) connectivity tiles
    13) Bookmyshow
    14) Zomato
    15) 1password
    16) Weave
    17) Cricinfo
    18) Flipkart

    I'm interested in Photo related apps. I'm not going to do much editing but I'd like to have 1 or 2 handy apps.
    I'm also interested in games. I'm gonna install some popular titles like Temple run 2, Subway Surfers, Angry birds, Asphalt etc but I'd like to get some recommendations here too.
    If you have any other recommendations or tips please feel free to share. Thanx in advance :)

    Nokia's suite of photography apps are very useful, such as Refocus, Cinemagraph...

    Games, I suggest Halo: Spartan Assault, Spartan Runner, potentially Super Monkey Ball 2, VBA8, Where's My Water...

    10) Remote Desktop (any good alternative for this?)
    16) Weave

    I'm also interested in games. I'm gonna install some popular titles like Temple run 2, Subway Surfers, Angry birds, Asphalt etc but I'd like to get some recommendations here too.
    - Teamviewer is a good alternative to Remote Desktop
    - Nextgen Reader is the best RSS reader. I prefer it over Weave.
    - If you like strategy games then you can try out Kingdoms and Lords, Wordament is good for vocab, Frozen free fall is a great game too the best substitute for Candy Crush Saga.

    Congrats on your new L1520. Its a great phone and your gonna love it.
