My son just got a Nokia 521 windows phone 8 and I'm looking for ways he can access the media stored on the 2012 Essentials box. Is there any good apps for administrating the box from Windows Phone 8?

I know there is a Windows Phone 7 app for WHS 2011 and there is a Windows Phone 8 for 2012 R2 Essentials in the works.

"My server" is the app you want for WP8. Fine for accessing files and pictures.

Tho personally i get much better results with PLEX running on the server and the PLEX app on WP8 for music & movies.

My bad! I missed the R2 part. Having just spent the day transitioning from R1 to R2 I just discovered, as your post suggests that the WP8 and W8 "My Server" apps don't currently work. I need to read more carefully  :P

Here's hoping the updated apps are released soon!
