Team Viewer for WP8: http://www.windowsph...90-c1777bdfe9e5


Not bad, but needs to get better. No mouse icon on the screen when remoted into my Server 2012 Essentials vm. I emailed feedback on it.

Not sure if it was mentioned but MS's 'Where is My App' and Nokias Spotlight Social beta are an interesting to do app list they have going.  Found out Mint is actually slated for this year too.  (Though I think I'm done with them for good for dragging their feet so long)

oh hai !

 

Since I can't find something à la Google Listen that is also free, I come here before you to help me in my quest of the perfect podcast app for my little Lumia 920.

 

P.S. : I already tried Podcast! which is very cool from a GUI standpoint but it's not free and because of that I can only store 2 podcasts that I've downloaded.

Well, (if listed) you can use the over the air abilities.  If you are looking for the Zune/WP7 synergy we all knew and loved, you're in for disappointment.  The WP8 sync app was recently updated if you want to try creating the list in Zune then importing it.

 

Best 3rd party I think I've used was SlapDash.

There's a new playlist wireless sync app out. 

 

Playing Sync is an audio synchronization utility, which synchronizes Windows Media Player playlists to a Windows Phone 8 device using wireless network.

Application requires desktop component software to be installed first, which is transparent to the user, works in a background and does not require any additional configuration as well as mobile app, which automatically configures connection with remote machine during first run.

 

Key features

 

  • Configuration boils down to installing all required components
  • Synchronization over WiFi
  • Search for specific playlists or songs in collection
  • Synchronization of whole playlist or selected songs

Requirements:

 

  • Minimum supported PC OS version: Windows 7
  • Minimum supported Mobile OS version: Windows Phone 8
  • PC and mobile device must be connected to the same wireless network

PC app:  http://machinized.com/playing-sync/

Mobile app: http://www.windowsph...fc-54bccdf02f0e

 

Price is as little as 0.99$.
In trial mode synchronization is limited to one song at a time

 

Until MS re-adds wireless sync to WP8 like it was in Zune people might want to give this a try.

Here are some good apps for Windows Phone:

SkyDrive: Access and upload files to your SkyDrive account. It’s also used by some apps to access files, so I highly recommend installing it.

Fresh Paint: A good drawing app from Microsoft.

Nokia Cam Pro: Adjust the way you take pictures.

BBC IPlayer: Has access to episodes of programs from the last few days.

Some of my most used apps

Prime Tv- Track Tv shows, while hasn't been updated in ages i find it better then TV shows as it can sync to and from trakt so always a backup

 

UC Browser- Feature rich 2nd browser when IE just isn't cutting it

 

PC remote- get app to navigate your PC, I using the pro version though. need that copy&paste input

 

SysApp Pusher- For all those unsearchable apps

 

Toggle- Mostly just for double bill that goes from Cell then Wifi from one short cut

 

MyFreeApp- What could be better then a free app a day

For those who are big on games and RPGs for that matter, Square-Enix has brought Final Fantasy 3 to WP.  It's a 450MB download and costs $15 but it's the best FF out of the old original ones.  Just head to the store and do a search for Final Fantasy and you'll see it, I don't have a link handy since I'm on my phone atm.
