What good apps for my lumia?

Now got the 920, what apps are good out there?

So far got me CloudyBox for dropbox, SGBuses, Weather Channel and TuneIn Radio (though nokia music seems to be much nicer).

Check out Twabbit if you need a Twitter client

edit: SurfCube is a few dollars but it's a much better browser than IE10 because of UI and lock rotation controls.

There's Counters by Nokia but it's not on WP8 yet. For the saving data part IE10 has server-side compression (I think that's the buzzword) built in.

Not sure if these are available for WP8:

1) The Weather Channel weather app
2) SGTransport
3) SGTaxi

But of course, your xinvideos is an awesome app which I think all Singaporeans WP users should not forget to install.

At least I wont forget to install it.

Here are the apps I'm using

Transport apps:
Nokia Drive
BusGuide (I do agree SGTransport has more features but when a simple bus timing/route application is needed, BusGuide fits the bill)

News:
Channel NewsAsia
iToday (although UI sucks, and I hope it gets improved eventually)
STOMP (already removed unfortunately)

Entertainment:
9Gag
SG Movies
Soundhound
SuperTube

Information:
iChangi
NLB Singapore

To add on:

FlightAware - to track flights worldwide (only international airlines are available for tracking). Basically, you can set an alert to tell you when the flight has departed/arrived.

I recommend the weather app "weather flow". It has both lock screen support and small/med/wide tile support. I am very impressed with the app, though it is a bit expensive at 3 dollars. But I feel it's worth it for the eye candy it brings to my lock screen!

Too bad always same weather forecast here, eh?

Let's see what else I use...mostly what i also used for the past 2 years on 7.x:

All Nokia Exclusives (not all pre-installed and most need an update that's not shown!)
WPCentral App
Skype
Audible
Amazon Kindle
Connectivity Shortcuts
XE Currency
Battery Level for WP8
gMaps Pro...but Nokia Maps should suffice now...only bought it before ;-)
iChangi
Metrotube
PDF Reader
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn apps as backup for the people hub ;-)
