Arrow Your top 5 apps

let's start a list and see what everyone's top 5 apps/games are for their X10. It can be free or paid. Also give a brief description if you can for those that don't have that app. An app just might show up that you haven't tried yet already!


Mine so far:

1. Helix Launcher - love the shortcuts and double tap feature that allows you to see the other screens
2. Handscent SMS - totally kills the SMS program that comes with the phone
3. Google Maps
4. Google Sky Map - see the universe by slowly moving the phone around. Damn cool showing this to other people.
5. Jewels - game is addictive

3; guitar strings - simple guitar tuner

4: office suite - view excel, word docs

5; es file explorer - browse sd card , windows shares, ftp + app manager

2) Mort Player (Folder based media player with an audiobook version too which both run through the same widget, absolutely perfect for me!)
3) Quickdial (awesome one click dialer)
4) Math Alarm Clock (the best alarm ever, you have to solve a sum before it turns off guaranteed to wake you up!)
5) Battery life (the best battery widget! Even has voltages if you want it)

Default Re: Your top 5 apps

1. ADW.Launcher - fast and customizable home screen.
2. FolderOrganizer - great way to keep your apps organized and access them quickly.
3. xScope Browser - best and fastest browser I have yet found for the X10.
4. Swype - any other keyboard pales in comparison to the sped and fluidity of Swype.
5. Pure Messenger - viewing emails, SMS, Facebook updates and more in a customizable widget just shows why Android rocks over iOS.

Honourable Mentions
Abduction - horribly addictive game.
bTunes - fast and smooth MP3 player with lock-screen controls.
NewsRoom - best RSS/article reader, bar none.
PdaNet - don't tether without it.

-----
Written using Swype. Please excuse any mis-selected words, I tend not to pay attention.

Camera 360 - better camera app with way more features
SwiFTP - FTP server for the phone so I can send files from any computer to and from the phone (great if you don't always have your USB cable)
ScoreMobile - from The Score (one of the 3 sports networks in Canada) shows pretty much every sport, odds and good update times...some games also have a real time blog of the game so updates are as instant as TV...I use it for NHL, NCAA and NFL and sometimes MMA
Skyfire - my favorite browser because it converts some videos on the fly. I can view highlights from hockey and football which I can't do in the default Browser
XPeria Flashlight - I have used it dozens of times....very helpful

Other apps/games:

Alchemy - the game....mix elements and create new objects....good waste of time.

Angry Bird, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio

TV Show Favs (lets me know when new TV eps are coming out from my favorite shows)

AppBrain App Market - better market app that syncs apps and lets me create app lists I can share with friends

ArcMedia - best media playing app that plays pretty much every video type from FLV to AVI to MPG.

Thumbs up Top 5 Apps.

Hey everyone, first poster here, just thought I'd jump into the conversation!

I very rarely download apps that cost me money. Not cuz I'm a student and permanently skint, but because I have found so many brilliant apps that are free! My top 5..

5) Ringdroid - Lets you take music and trim samples of it to set as your default ringtone or notification tone. Might sound simple, but you'd be amazed how many people have the latest BBs and iPhones that cannot do this!

4) Smart Keyboard - Gets rid of the QWERTY keyboard originally installed on your phone and replaces it with an old-skool keypad. Great for people with chubby fingers like me

3) Sky+ - Invaluable app that lets me set my programs up to record when I'm out the house. Could not live without this app!

2) Where's My Droid? - Amazing free app that, when you text your number a specific phrase/word, activates the ringtone so you can find your phone when you have it on silent (I have a co-worker who loves to hide my phone, and this one foils her all the time!) and also can enable GPS to track your phone when you lose it. I haven't actually lost my phone but I tested this out with my partner one night and was amazed it gave me an accurate reading when I didn't even have GPS switched on!

1) SayNoTo08 - A brilliant app that, when switched on, automatically gives you alternative numbers for companies within the UK when you try to dial their 0845 number from your mobile. This app has saved me LOADS of money since I moved into my new flat!

The Android Market is a great way of killing time, browsing though all the apps and downloading them! This one thread will keep me busy for the next week or so, trying out all the ones you guys suggest! Thanks!

I play Jewels, Touch Pool 2D or PacMan Championship to wind down in bed before sleeping. That list and the games constitutes 95% of everything I do on the phone...not a high end user I know.

File Expert - Android app on AppBrain
QuickPic - Android app on AppBrain
Minimalistic Text for Android | AppBrain.com
Bookmark Tree Manager | AppBrain Android Market

And basic stuff (very difficult to list 5 total):
