So, with the 920 coming to AT&T tomorrow, I started thinking about the fact that I'm going to have to reinstall all of the apps that I currently have on my 900.
That brings the question- has anything at all been done to improve this experience? On WP7, you have to install each program manually, one at a time. Windows 8 gives you a "Your Apps" menu that lets you batch select apps to be installed.
Does WP8 act more like WP7 or more like Windows 8? Do we even get an app history in WP8?
(And yes, I am aware of the "Reinstaller" app for WP7, but that's a kludgy workaround that still requires you to manually click install on every single app you want.)

Yes you do. I just had my Focus next to me and just went through the list and downloaded what I wanted again. It isn't hard, just tedious.Pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in Mason, MI

Go to settings>find my phone> enable push notifications.
Then sign into WindowsPhone.com and go to purchase history. It will list all of the apps that you have downloaded. Go down the list and reinstall any apps that you want on your new phone. This works but it seems like the site is having problems as it is very slow right now.
Edit: ha, looks like rkgriffin beat me to it.

I just went there too and noticed that only my paid apps are visible. That is a royal pain in the ***. So I guess I am going to have to fire up the trusty old Focus once more, grab paper and pencil, make a list and then do it all by hand. Unless anyone has any other ideas?
