Default Favorite App so far.... Developers please see link to Announcements above.

I would have to say that locale is my favorite app so far. I had some trouble with it being inconsistent last week, but now it seems to be running smoothly. I'm saving battery power by having it turn off my WiFi settings while I'm at work, during work hours.


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

I'm a big fan of AnyCut. It brings the functionality of the phone straight to the foreground. Love it!

Bonsai Blast is far too addicting. My battery life suffers dramatically because of it. Lol.

I forgot about anycut! I guess it seems more like a setting than an app, but you're right it does make things easier!

Locale - this app is very cool. I have a profile for work, home, my parent's house and a default setting for when none of those are active. Oh and I have one for night time. I get to work and it turns the volume down a bit, changes my 'desktop' image, turns of the wi-fi (so the security guys don't bug out), and it changes my ringtone and volume. At home the Wifi goes on, pictures changes, volume goes up etc. At night I have it turn of all network stuff besides the phone istelf and mutes the sound. It's great. Love it!
I use the Weather Channel and Shop Savvy apps quite a bit too

Default Any Clip

Any Clip!

I use it in google toolbar and send any kinds of notes to my phone.
And on the phone, just click the link or adress to run browser or map.

Plus, it has a web interface.
I use it to send app market link from my own web:

for example to send the app Music On Demand:

HTML Code:
<a href="http://anyclip.blueslabs.com/send?market.android.com/search?q=Music%20On%20Demand" target="_blank">
<img src="http://anyclip.blueslabs.com/static/icon.png"
border="0" alt="Send link to your phone"></a>
Or like this to post the link here:

HTML Code:
[URL="http://anyclip.blueslabs.com/send?market.android.com/search?q=Music%20On%20Demand"]

CardioTrainer has my vote.

Out of all the apps I downloaded (God knows how many hours of sleep I've been losing playing around with that phone), I found CardioTrainer one of the most impressive programs on the Android. The current recession has left a bit of a dent in my wallet, and I wasn't really interested in paying for any applications (Buying the G1 was my self-made promise not to spend any more money this year on non-essentials), so CT being free made it a lot easier for me to dl and use.

Of course, just being free wouldn't be enough to make me like a program, but it at least allowed me to try it. Also, being a fit freak, I installed the program and took it for a spin. Its pretty cool in that it utilizes GPS technology and Google Maps in order to pinpoint exactly where I am running. It's also got voice commands, a race against yourself option (which I find probably the most useful part of the app), and best of all, its all in my phone so I don't have to drag a crapload of hardware around with me. When I'm done with my run, I can then check out my stats and route which is uploaded on their website, www.worksmartlabs.com/cardiotrainer/about.php

Another AF Member mentioned this point ....
Think of the G1 as a Base Unit which you added the feature you like that make the phone personally yours ... with out the BLOAT of all kinds of features you might never use ... But can easy add with a special app most of which are free or very reasonably priced ...

IMO ... it is the best of all possibilities ...!!

i wish the market had a way of sorting by ratings, and not by popularity.

my favorites would be skymap, gmote, and where, which now has the voice search.

I purchased a HTC Magic today, and am on Android 1.5 - loving the functionality all the apps bring to the phone.

Favourite apps so far: SMS Popup, Locale, Rings Extended and the Retro Clock Widget :P

Google Sky Map. Great way to show off Android. I wonder if future Android netbooks will have accelerometers?

Tough question...favorite - is that an app I use everyday? a market app?

Since I am not good at deciding - I broke it down like this:

Default App - Browser
Communication - ChompSMS
1.5 apps - Camcorder
Widget - Forecast Widget 1x4
Background - Timeriffic
Games - Cestos
Music - Imeem
News - USA Today

Post The List

For me, I cannot pin down a single app. There are too many out there that perform a host of different things. Instead, I'll tell you what I downloaded and why. I have others, but they may be leaving my phone soon, as I have not found them very useful.
  • CalorieCounter by FatSecret: Barcode scan the food you just bought, and it will give you all the nutritional facts about it. You can also add it to Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner/Snack group and it will tell you how you're eating. Man, I gotta slow down on the Whoppers!
  • Backgrounds: I never like the same image, so this is a great app. You can scan through a list of wallpapers created/formatted for the G1 and mix things up.
  • Compass: Okay, so I never really NEED this, but it is so cool to use. Pretty self-explanatory app.
  • Where: Great for road trips. Uses your location to determine where to find things in the area.
  • Ultimate Stopwatch: There are several stopwatches out there. This is the one that was graphically appealing and did the job.
  • Ringdroid: If you like music for your ringtones, this is definitely a must have app. You can take snippits of your favorite parts of the song and make it into a ringtone. Also has the capability of assigning the ringtone to the contact while in the software.
  • imeem Mobile: Streaming music client. I have a couple that I use. This is a recent download, and so far I like it.
  • Linda File Manager 1.2.10: Great for managing files directly on your microSD card.
  • Power Manager Full: There is also a trial version of this, but I bit the bullet and spent $0.99 on the full version. This is what I would refer to as a killer app. Great functionality in managing items that you need on/off depending on your conditions. For example, I have the screen remain on when I use my phone as a GPS unit in my car, and I have the USB plugged into my 12V adapter.
  • My Tracks: If you are into running, biking, or hiking... this is the application for you. You can record tracks, download tracks from Google Maps, store waypoints... many features. Pretty awesome features.
  • My Maps editor: If you are using My Tracks, you need this.
  • Exchange By Touchdown: Unfortunate that Exchange is not natively supported on the G1, but Touchdown offers a great solution. Probably the best exchange tool I've ever used (I come from a WM6 background). It is the most expensive piece of software I purchased for my G1, and worth every penny.
  • TuneWiki: This is a just a fun piece of software. Plays songs on your phone, or streams from Last.fm or ShoutCast. Additionally, downloads lyrics and presents them Karaoke style on your phone. Even more: You can click a video button to search YouTube for the video of the song. Really great!
  • Battery Widget: Places a battery icon on your desktop
  • Brightness Profiles: Quickly change your brightness settings using the desktop icon. I admit that I use this less and less now that I have Power Manager.

Quick question - doesn't Locale absolutely hammer your battery if you need GPS on all the time for it to work? Or am I missing something?

My partner and I developed a free app that doesn't use GPS with the specific intent to not hurt the battery.

Check out Timeriffic. It controls various things on the G1 using timers.

Let us know what you think. If you like it, be sure to rate it.

The Calendar widget added in version 1.5 is my most important app. Located on my main screen, it always shows my next calendar entry and one press takes me to the current date and time on my calendar.

I LOVE SpoofApp. My favorite app for my Android phone fo sho. The voice changer + the call recorder is the best thing ever. I prank my friends (and enemies) all the time with the app and there's no way they can tell its me. Then you have the recording of the call too! I started sharing the really funny ass ones on my Facebook. haha.

Three way tie between Gmote, Google Listen, and My Tracks.
Very much looking forward to the upcoming ADC2 to add to that list.

Abduction World Attack - very addictive game

Phone Fusion Visual Voicemail - Very handy for viewing voicemails, I've started using Google Voice, but am reluctant to basically switch over my phone number at this point so Phone Fusion is great for calls comming into my T-Mobile #

ChompSMS - This is just a much better program for SMS IMO

Weatherbug

ShopSavvy
