Testing WP8

I won a Windows Phone from Verizon (via a sweepstakes from their official Twitter account) and it's either going to be the Nokia Lumia 822 (I hope not) or the HTC 8X (hoping so). I'm currently the owner of a Verizon Galaxy Nexus and I can't wait to be rid of it. The screen is awful (and cracked :/) and the battery lasts like 3 hours, maybe 6 hours max if I don't hardly use it.

I really want a Droid DNA, but I see this as a great opportunity to try WP8. However, I really don't think I'm going to like it much from what I've seen of it so far. But, I'm going to try to give it at least a month. I need some help though. I need some help trying to find good (free) apps that can replace the apps I use on my current phone.

I'm a huge Twitter user, so I need a good free Twitter app. From what I've seen so far, it looks like all of them are slow. I need a good Twitter app with a decent interface, live tile support, and it needs to be fast. This is the most important thing I need to find. I don't really care about Facebook as much. I also need a Pocket client, because I use it all the time. I hear 4th and Mayor or whatever is a good Foursquare app. I need a good Pinterest app, Google Talk app, Hootsuite app, Dropbox, SMS syncing solution (like mySMS), and YouTube app just to take care of the basics.

If I can cover my basic apps, I may be able to consider keeping a WP for longer than the trial month. However, if I can't find apps covering those needs, I might even sell it and buy the Droid DNA faster than you can say "Windows Phone". If I can't find a good Twitter app especially, I won't even go three days. Would love some help finding good apps to try to make this work out, cuz I'd love to have this work. Thank you for your help in advance. :)
