    I hope this is in no particular order, because the ebay app is MUCH more important than the Amazon one...

    The truly amazing thing about this story as evidenced by the lack of comments is that maybe MS has more of an uphill battle than once thought

    Most people don't even have their Lumia 920's in the states yet, mine is arriving later today/tomorrow. Unfortunately AT&T is helping to ruin the hype behind the release of WP8.

  • What? No MonsterUp Adventures? :) None of my phones are without it! (WP7 or WP8)
  • whats with all this crapware? now Toms Guide is promoting crapware?
  • Hulu? Anyone.....Anyone? Hulu?
  • CaedenV
    PC Remote
    Bible (youversion)
    Demote It

    Other than games, those are all the ones I like to use on a regular basis on my lumia 920 (other than the native installed apps)

    Currency X
    Mail app
    Weather app

    That's all that's useful on the desktop really, so many better things that are in 'windowed' form

    Doesn't WP8 have the Sound Hound functionality natively? I know WP7 has it.

    If you host Google Ads this one is inevitable (although still in beta): Metro AdSense: https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/metro-adsense/6776b823-cd2b-4dbd-9e02-93e26f236829
