Default Best Apps for the Razr

Hey folks,

As I am still kind of new to the device I am always searching for the best apps and new stuff that people have used and enjoy. I did not see this posted, if so I apologize.

Maybe we can just keep a list of apps that seem to play well with the device based on first hand user experience. Maybe list 3 or so that you have found to be great apps.

I will start with five..(my phone is still stock, so if an app only works in rooted devices, list that)

Go Launcher EX..great for customization, themes. Many options.

Camera Zoom FX..nice camera app with a lot of customization options.

Tapatalk..great for quick forum reads and posts.

Dragon Go..pretty slick for local look ups, food, places, searches. voice.

K9 email..multi accounts, good uder interface, works with Go notifications

I'm not a big app hog, most of what I use is stock on the phone, but I'd recommed

Go Launcher (I couldn't get used to the Blur launcher, the 'all apps' button was just in the wrong place).
Tiny Flashlight (great for when you find yourself in the dark somewhere)
CPU Spy, for when you're wondering what your phone has been up to.

If rooted, Titanium Backup.

I used to use dialer one... I found touch pal dialer and couldn't go back... But that was before moto. I actually like the stock dialer on the razr.

Does anyone know a good simple widget/app for switching from CDMA only to CDMA/LTE?

Hmm not quite what I'm looking for. Is there one that's a widget that can 1-press switch it from 3G to 4G LTE? Preferably with a graphic that shows me which I'm currently using at a glance. If got a Wi-Fi widget that does just that, and was hoping for something similar.

I've seen lots of request for a widget like that, so far nobody has found one, that I've seen.

I made a shortcut for Wireless Networks on my Home Screen to switch back and forth.

Light Flow is a great app. Especially since the razr has so many different LED color choices. Can set a certain color to all your different notifications.

Sandisk memory zone is also a great app.
