    Can I use some of this list and add it to mine? I'd look it up each app and put each one in the category it belongs in? I think we can all build a whole list and I can just keep editing the first post and give credit where it's due. Let me know if this is okay?

    That's my entrance fee. If Remember is not included , then for me there is no reason to give up my Z30. All my other wants are part of what we've seen as included so far, or can be handled through the Google Play Store.
