good list. i will be adding some. i would add mp3 download free version to the music category. i have that on my phone and i download tones of music then plug my phone into the computer to rename all the songs. I like it. I don't know know legal it is or how many viruses circulate but it works for me.

*iheartradio- picks up stations from around the country and maybe inernationally as well.

*/xiialite- i like it cause it allows you to search by kbps meaning you play it without wifi but it may cut out after a minute or two, but I agree best results if used with wifi

*videobox- allows you to download and watch youtube videos from your sd card.

*ustream viewer- allows you to watch livefeeds off of ustream

*/scanner buddy- gives you livefeeds to tons and tons of feeds from all over the world. again works without wifi but cuts off to buffer from time to time so for best results use with wifi.

*/prankdial- this app is great does exactly what the name says also works without wifi(takes along time to listen to playback of prankcall) so for best results use with wifi

*youtube.apk- found it on several forums and it allows you to view youtube vids from android browser as long as your connected to wifi.(app not located on market)


tools

calender pad- comes with an awesome widget that you can use to see entire month on one mainscreen.

@Respect: True the phone out of the box doesn't support Youtube. First you have to download a Youtube apk.file off the interweb. Then if you have a wifi connection and the apk.file installed onto your phone. Youtube does work with the app and the webkit browser.

look it up buddy it's a fact.

QuickContact is great for fast contact inputs without having to enter menus,
Picasa Tool is a breeze to use and runs smooth on the i1

Youtube works just fine..
However you have to find version 1.3 (or less) as thats the only version that works with our 1.5 OS system..
Any version above 1.3 will not work..

Do some research before you complain that an app doesnt work~

Text Messaging
-----------------------
ChompSMS (chompSMS) - Free text messaging application with LOTS of customization options. Simple and easy to use, great alternative to the default program. It looks just like the Iphone messaging (the little balloons).
