I just tried Apex Launcher and I love it! It's so nice to get rid of that silly Google search bar, and to be able to use my home screen in landscape mode.

Just found a great little program on Lifehacker's list of best programs for 2012 that I hadn't come across yet called Wave Control. Great for people that play music a lot. Allows control of music (start/stop/next/last/disable) with a wave of your hand over the phone. Great if your working with your hands getting them dirty and don't want to touch the phone or just don't want to have to turn on your screen to change songs or pause/resume. Free version works great, Pro version unlocks a few more features. Also has a Tasker plugin for programming that works great. I programmed a simple Tasker profile that when my phone connects to my Bose bluetooth speaker it loads Rhapsody, loads Wave Control and then enables it. Slick.

Not really an app, but I just discovered a widget on Google Maps that I can set any address for (I have my home addy set) and just hit the widget and it pulls up the GPS for home.

Sygic and Opera. I don't use Sygic often, but it has helped me most times I needed navigation. I was in London, but with my first Android phone - ordered a chineese one, dreadful. Waited for GPS signal lock for 20 minutes and it lasted for about 2 minutes and looses it again. And the restarts... oh, the restarts. Now, with the Galaxy S3 - no such problems .

I love the idea, and have seen several iterations in various apps. However, if there's an address - like home - that I'd use enough to make a widget worthwhile, well, I probably know how to get there ...

If your GPS is stolen and it has your actual home address, a thief has a direct path to your front door.

I have entered a gas station address near my home, to get me to familiar surrounding in case l get lost and need the GPS to help me out of a jam.

The second best would have to be Bonsai Blast, which is a more complicated and challenging game than I expected.

wow call me slow but i just set up Google music last night and so far i am in love
I have a GNEX so space is very precious and i found myself always changing my music on my phone because of this issue, but now i have it all synced up with Google leaving me tons more space on my phone (might download some games again)... another this i really like is the high quality streaming is amazing although not recommended unless you have unlimited data plan because about 20 minuets of music is about 200-500 MB

I just downloaded a photo editor app called "photo editor" LOL but truth be told, it's awesome. I'm not a photoshop kind of person. i just want to be able to crop, rotate, add simple borders, write on the photo occasionally. This does all of that and will save as a secondary photo so you can keep the original. Maybe it's old-hat, but to me, it's awesome.

Safe in the Cloud password manager. Whats different about this one is that it will sync to all your devices including your pc.

I'm wondering if I'd see that kind of improvement. I've had mixed results with battery saving apps. However, I do see Green Power getting a lot of good reviews.

As for things I absolutely love on my phone...Voxer, for talking with friends without burning minutes. It's like the best part of push to talk with message services. Pretty handy. Also, Groove IP (paid or free, paid has better sound tweaking capabilities) for making Google Voice calls over wifi. Handy if you burn through minutes of a plan, or like me, experience intermittent coverage where you live.

Half of my phones life is wifi.

Keyboard right now is SwiftKey 4, which I'm loving. It's the first predictive swyping text keyboard that actually seems to say what I'm trying to say.

Cam Scanner has been a lifesaver for me. Between that and online printing services, I don't really even need a scanner/printer anymore. Scan to .pdf, image file, etc. Handy as could be.

Talk To Me Cloud is a fantastic app for languages. I live close to Mexico, and my Spanish is so/so. If I have any kind of data though, I can get by with this app. Speak, get translation. Nuff Said.

Last but not least, Wifi Tether for root. Forget paying 15 dollars a month. Pssshhhhhh.

Greenify (rooted phones)
This app kicks all kind of a$$. Anyone who is rooted should definitely check it out!
It's the benefits of "freezing" (ex. Titanium backup,etc. ) an app without having to actually freeze it!

I'm giving it a shot. It looks like all it does is provide an easy interface for various networks all in one spot. For example, you can just use the app to watch shows on CBS, FOX, etc that are freely available to watch on their sites without having to go to each site separately.

Apparently it's legal to stream but illegal to download so as long as you're just streaming you won't get into trouble. The people who download and put the links up however can be prosecuted.

My most favorite so far is Contacts+ because it organizes all the info on my contacts and I can post on fb, twitter, send whatsapp msg, call, etc in one place. Very handy, I love it!

I'm not sure if this has been mention but Smart Tools is a great app to have. Actually it's a few apps in one type of tool set. I haven't used them all but still playing around with it.

Migrated from the Top Paid App discussion, which was locked while I was composing this message...

SwiftKey: worth buying for the Flow feature. The three best keyboards are Swype, Swift key Flow and Kii.

Titanium Backup Pro: was the backup app I used until I ran into a serious problem on Friday: Titanium Backup requires root access to work. My phone had root access before Friday. On Friday, I backed up some apps and data before Samsung pushed the Jellybean update onto my phone. I uninstalled some root apps, thinking that I would just reinstall them after the update. After the Jellybean OTA update (which erased root access,) I found out the existing rooting method would no longer work. Which means I can't use Titanium to retrieve my backups until an updated rooting method becomes available. So note I have some backup data that I need but can't get back, courtesy of Titanium Backup. As soon as that happens, I am getting a backup app that does not require root access.

Beautiful Widgets: Not worth it. The downloads section is a mess. HD Widgets is better, has a cleaner and organized interface, and also has a higher rating.

Root Explorer: Overrated. So many other better alternatives. I prefer ES File Explorer, which is free and also uses root access.

ROM Manager Premium: this is the worst experience. waste of money. Unless you plan to flash ROMs, avoid. Also avoid it if you have newer phones. This thing installs ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery, which was its selling point but is now a liability on newer phones. Newer phones can detect the presence of CWM and refuse to OTA update your firmware or OS. I've been reading so many people having problems CWM with updates due to CWM. CWM is also impossible to remove/uninstall once it gets into your phone.

HD Widgets: Better than Beautiful Widgets. This is the home page widget I use.

ROM Toolbox Pro: Lots of useful tools. Love its built-in file explorer (better than Root Explorer IMO) and ad blocker.

Where's My Water: Good game but not great.

Tapatalk Forum App: Using it right now. One of the apps I use most often.

Camera Zoom FX; I bought five camera apps, this is my default camera. Love the stabilizer sensor, which most other cameras do not have. (The others are mostly specialty cameras like panoramic camera and special effect cameras.)

Office Suite Pro: Document To Go is much better. I think this is the greedy app that wants to nickel-and-dime customers for individuals add-on components that should have been included in the paid app. Avoid.

SetCPU for Root User: more of hassle to set up and use than anything else. I bought it to underclock my old phone in sleep mode to save battery. My current phone already has that feature built in.

Smart Tools: waste of money. Seemed useful but I've never actually used anything from it. Does not allow direct access/shortcut to the flashlight, or let me put the flashlight on lock screen, therefore is basically useless for me. (I really just wanted the flashlight but the whole suite was on sale.) Ended up getting TeslaLED for that purpose.

SuperSU Pro: should not have bought it because I already had SuperUser Elite, but people keep saying this one is better. Well, it's not. It's not worse either. It's not that different from SuperUser.

Cut the Rope: I should stop buying casual or puzzle games... There are too many and becoming generic.

Angry Bird: why is this game so successful? This is a total ripoff of Crash the Castle on flash sites from years ago.

Oh well... I'd stop here...

Anyway. The single most most most useful app is Folder Organizer. Keeps my apps labeled, categorized and organized.

Default Pixel Artist

My favourite is "Pixel Artist". Its the fastest real-time camerra app with great effects, and sliders to customize your photo + you can create your own effects.

My favorite two right now are swiftkey keyboard and flipboard. After trying many keyboards, I went ahead and bought swiftkey. and I have also tried many news apps, I keep coming back to flipboard.
