WP7.x to WP8 app compatibility list

(edited: 12:57 eastern, Nov 10 to add apps, Thanks jhoff80, decimus plancus, mattdchambers)

A lot has been made about the impending fragmentation of the Windows Phone app ecosystem in the lead up to the Windows Phone 8 launch. The ironic thing here is that even though apps like Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars are WP8 only apps (right now, they are coming out for WP 7.x in a couple of weeks), the reverse situation of WP7 apps not being able to run on WP8 devices seems to be more prevalent right now.

I thought it would be a good idea to list the apps that WP8 can't run yet (or hasn't received a WP8 specific version). If someone make a list of WP8 apps that can't be run on WP 7.x, I'll be happy to help with that too. Please feel free to add apps you've
