I use DiviClock, a free clock widget. It looks nice, and tapping it gives you access to the alarm clock and calendar. (I helped the developer with the alarm clock bit. NBd). Give it a go, y'all. Matt

How about the WOW Battle.net Authenticator? Came out early this week, and is now a necessity as far as I'm concerned!

What do you think the best diary or journal program is? There isn't much of a selection, but I tried MyDay and I think that it at least has potential. Note Everything is kind of like it but I don't think it has a calendar.

Facebook (obvious reasons)
Radar Now (quick access to a radar direct from the NWS)
SportsTap (even better since the update - quick access to every score imaginable)
Newspapers (one touch access to numerous newspapers)
Places Directory (find restaurants, bars, stores, etc..)
Pandora (customize your music)
iheartradio (clear channel radio stations nationwide)
Music Junk (download music & find lyrics)
Spare Parts (keep check on battery usage)
PDAnet (tether a pc to your Eris)

Apps come and go on my phone, but here are a few I backup for new ROMs/reinstalls:

antivirus (Just good to have)
WaveSecure Mobile Security (Anti-theft app, also good for backing up contacts, SMS, and other files)
Free Dictionary Org (The best dictionary for its size)
Quickpedia (My favorite Wikipedia app)
WiFinder (Simple no-frills WiFi manager)
craigsphone (Good Craigslist app, very functional)
NetCounter (Keep track of your 3G/Wifi usage. A must)
Phonalyzr (Moniter your airtime minutes)
dg QuickCut (Do-it-yourself shortcuts. Good to have)
SDMount (Rescan/reupload your SD card in one click)
Places Directory (Simple, effective)
Dolphin Browser (Beats the stock browser in HTC phones, anyway)
Handcent SMS (VERY customizable text-messaging program)
Volume Control (Instant access to all your volume controls)
Proximity Sensor (No more accidental cheek hang-ups!)
Battery Widget (Obvious reasons)
i Music (Pirated music for your listening pleasure. ARRR!)
Startup Auditor (Decide what apps start when you boot your phone)
vibrate mode by force (Eliminate silent mode and/or ringer. Handy app)
Spare Parts (Just get it)


Snaptell and Barcode Scanner are 2 other essentials, but they seem to have disappeared from the market. I lost them when I rooted my phone, and now can't get them back. If anybody can hook me up with the latest versions of either of them, I would really appreciate it.

It's not great. If you can get a Google Voice invite, use that.

Facebook: duh
Handcent: the BEST SMS app, has popups, TONS of options
Home Switcher: experiment with home apps
Last.fm: alternative to Pandora, better interface than Pandora
My Verizon: duh
AudioManager: Great volume control app, new version just this week has great interface redesign. really good widget comes with it.
Movies: movie database app, check showtimes, watch trailers, etc.
Not Call Log: Make the phone return to home after hang up, no more pocket dials
Pandora: duh
PdaNet: tether PC
Rhapsody: not available in market yet, i'm running beta. if you have a rhapsody-to-go subscription, it's awesome.

TV-Guide: only really useful if you're traveling to know what's on when you're in a hotel or something.
Weatherbug: the BEST weather app out there
Wordpress: edit and manage your wordpress blog

For me, the "must haves" (besides a file manager and a folder organizer) are :

Traffic Cams (to deal with unpredictable NYC traffic)
Music Junk (great song availability, simple interface, quick dl's, small size)
Opera Mini (as a second browser, when speed over functionality is needed)

Copied and pasted from my other post in a different thread on this subject:

My must haves:

Acontacts - use instead of default dialer
Handcent - use instead of stock messenger
Weatherbug - weather
Audio manager
Afile lite
Astro - file manager
Colornote - notepad/checklist
Sdrescan - check for changes on sd card when transferring files over WiFi
Imusic - music downloader
My Verizon

I have many others but these are my main must haves.

I just recently found this app posted in another forum. I haven't seen it posted in the "Eris" forum yet and figured I'd share it in this thread because it is my new "Must Have" app.

AppBrain

The description states:
"Finally it's possible to install Android apps from a web interface!
Browse the app market on AppBrain from a desktop computer and use this app to install and uninstall the apps you selected on that website!
Appbrain.com has: Related apps, fast search, popularity lists, wishlists, and sharing of app lists!"

I think its MUCH easier browsing apps this way than through the market.

I tried this a while ago but wasn't impressed. They have made improvements and it is now quite useful! Screenshots, reviews, install apps directly to the phone, recommended/related apps... You can even make lists of apps that you don't want to use yet but want to keep an eye on for later...

This is how Google should have made the market in the first place!!

Nice app, shouldn't there be a way to get around app market location limitations if we are actually using the web to search for apps? How does the website know the location of the device? Google account?

Default Any good live wall paper for HTC Eris 2.1?

I tried downloading the Aquarium Live wall paper but couldn't get it to work.

After the OTA, I did download Google Goggles...pretty sweet!! And Nav is tremendous!

Don't bother with live wallpapers. They will not work on your Eris.
