this is the thing, everyone has a different definition of "must have" so eventually every app in the market will be posted here...

Not really. Because the market store isn't as good as the Iphones market store for searching I think doing it this way will help people get some good apps. I feel like even though everyone has a different definition people will still only post useful, good apps on here.

AndroLib, Find all applications and games available in the Android Market for your Android Phone, HTC Dream, HTC Magic etc...

Click top of the day at the top. Refreshes everyday and new apps are added to the inventory. Just search for them in the Market.

My top 5 are:
Ringdroid
Abduction (Doodlejump duped)
Trap!
AK Notepad
ATK (Used sparingly)

Gameboid. Tilting Mario around the screen with the accelerameter is killer.

did you buy or are you using lite

where did you get the games.


as for this thread. It is just a good insight what apps people are using no harm in posting must have apps.

as for the battery widget. I notice that when i had it my battery was draining out faster. Since then i deleted it and my battery is lasting longer

I started out using lite, with which you can use in game saves and everything works. GBA games are made for mobile, so most of them have pretty reasonable save points. (The SNES Final Fantasy games ported to GBA added save anywhere for example)

Then I decided to buy the paid version for even more save options and to support the developer. I got the games just Googling for them.

I want an app that will help me identify trees. Just photos of overall tree shape, bark, and leaves. Maybe categorized by area.

Ultimate would be to take a photo (or point camera) at a tree feature and have it identified.

Make that app.

Long list of stuff up there. The most useful one I have installed for customization is Ring Extender.
It allows me to assign any sound I have to my incoming text messages and notifications so I know who is texting me.
It does not show up as an app so there will not be an icon for it. To use it,
press menu/settings/sound and display/phone ringtone or notification ringtone. A pop up will ask what program to use, choose rings extended. You will have access to other ringtones, mp3 files, or sounds that you have on your SD Card.
If you have a 3rd party text like chompSMS, you will have to customize the sounds through that application.

For Bloo are you guys using the free version? And also, does it allow Facebook chat?

I'm surprised no one here mentioned "Robo Defense" (Game). So fun, I bought the full version and I rarely purchase games.

Make sure you follow these directions. If you try to open it, it will just give you an error screen.
To use it, after it is installed...
From the Home screen - press menu>settings>sound and display>phone ringtone or notification ringtone. A pop up will ask what program to use, choose rings extended. You will have access to other ringtones, mp3 files, or sounds that you have on your SD Card.
If you have a 3rd party text like chompSMS, you will have to customize the sounds through that application.

Thanks for the list of must have apps. However, lots of people post what they call the app, not necessarily the actual name of the app. When we search for the app listed it says it does not exist. Pleas post the actual Market Place name of the app so others are able to find it in the Market Place.
thanks!!

Ok since the update to ChompSMS I can't get it to work. Have uninstalled and reinstalled more times than I can count. Every time I hit send button it force stops. Sucks. Maybe they will have new update that will fix it.

ChomSms is doing the same thing to me as well but only for Verizon numbers. When I text someone thats on a different network it goes through..... I had to download Handcent to send out texts and its working flawlessly...... I am liking Handcent more and more

Mine is working. No problems sending to VZ or others yet. Do you have to reboot your phone after setting the chompSMS to default?

I wouldnt call it "must have", but I came across a very handy app ... aFile Lite 1.2.0 by mAPPin Inc. Formerly known as Discover.

It allows you to transfer files to and from your phone using the WiFi in your phone. The only downfall thus far is having to restart the phone to use the files.

Does anyone know how to reload or mount/unmount the SD card without hooking it up to a PC? This program would be perfect if you could move the file over and it would show up right away.

Menu -> Settings -> SD card & phone storage -> Unmount SD card

But um...I don't know how to mount the card once you do that. Probably have to either hook it up to the computer, or physically take out the card and then put the card back in. Doh...

Edit: Yeah, I took off the battery cover and took out the microSD and put it back in. It mounted automatically. Pain in the... though.

I just noticed there's a space to the right of the camera that should be where the flash is! Dang it...I wish they had kept the flash in there, instead of skimpin' out like that...

Edit: Yeah, I took off the battery cover and took out the microSD and put it back in. It mounted automatically. Pain in the... though.

I just noticed there's a space to the right of the camera that should be where the flash is! Dang it...I wish they had kept the flash in there, instead of skimpin' out like that...
Good to know, but defeats the purpose of having an easy was to move documents onto your SD card from your computer. If there was a toggle for mounting/unmounting that would work well.

I thought google goggles only works with 1.6. When I do a search, it says, no matches in Android Market.

my current favorite app has to be gmote! it is a remote on your phone to open things on your computer such as music movies and internet. You need a computer that can use internet on a wireless network otherwise it won't work but it is fun to randomly turn music on from anywhere in your house.

GOT IT!!! SDrescan by Benjamin Rosseaux

SDrescan v1.0.1 Application for Android | Tools




Ok, so now it is a must have. Using your WiFi connection you can transfer files from your computer to your Eris or from your Eris to your computer using aFile. If you move the files to your Eris, you then need to run SCrescan so the Eris can find the files. This is so much easier than using the USB connector.

A lot of these apps on here I use everyday! But for me, an app that is a must have is "Screebl", free and works perfectly. This app uses the accelorometer to prevent your phone from sleeping while you are using it. I suggest you check this app out, once you install it you almost forget it is there. But if you ever uninstall it you will want it back ASAP!!!
