Offerings like this on WPCentral is why I'm down to just under 4 gig on my Lumia 920.  Thanks Rich!

Haha..i have like 7 gigs left because of this very thing!! Hopefully ill be able to delete some apps that this one will turn into doubles..

Yeah. I just got a new 920 due to the spinning gears and went to my windowsphone.com account to look at all purchased apps. I was extremely surprised to find that I am pushing 300 apps downloaded/purchased, with only 30-50 of those subsequently deleted...not that I use them all, but 250 "useful" apps isn't too bad :)

Cool, I wanted this one for a while.... I forgot about it when I had my 928 credit...
 
Thanks Marc for the tip !

I use "base" every time I park in a big parking lot, so I can find my way back to the car.  Works great.  Even at its regular price, Jack is worth it.

Off topic but the Nokia Lumia 1520 will be available in cyan color, for those wondering if the color was ever going to be included in the color option lineup.

There is a big button 'Apps' which I think it's useless like an adware. This button will redirect you to the other apps that developers have. This is not a professional way to advertise your apps as a programmer. Eventhough it's free, I won't use it because of this.

Anytime an app is on special free, download it if you don't need it uninstall but its yours to download from then on

Anyone know any apps that take advantage of the 1020s built in barometer. It would be cool to see the current reading as well as be able to see a 24 or 48 hour graph.

Well, this is a great app to fill the J in my apps list. Now I need good apps to fill the Q, X, and Z slots.

There's one functionality that I'm not finding anywhere in these toolboxes. 
On my former Nokia N9, I had a toggle to turn off the screen and that was just amazing. Instead of using the physical button, you would just click on an icon, which was far more convenient. Of course, it's all about being lazy but that would be much more useful to me than a led lamp or a compass. 
Would be great to have a tile to turn the screen off. Everything would happen on the screen! Double tap to awake and simple click on a tile to turn it off. 

If you buy an app on sale, do you have to pay the difference the next time you download it? Nope :) You're technically buying it on sale for the low price of $0.00

I had the same question. If you download an app while its temporarily "free", if I uninstall it will it still be free for me in the future?

downloading an app for FREE is considered a PURCHASED buy. If you have purchased it, it is yours forever as many times as possible. That's why folks here download a free app but cancel the download since once you start the download, MS thinnks you purchased it and can re-download it whenever.
It will go through the payment options but then it will say 'you already have purchased this app' and then you can download that SAME app again. You can review all your purchased apps at http://www.windowsphone.com under Purchase History.
