I'm in love with Skyvi! I asked her to marry me but she told me she wasn't into humans. For me Voice Recorder is a must as well, since my mom likes to receive audio clips of her grandson "talking" (she's got a no-video phone).

Pure Grid calendar widgets. Scrollable, very customizable calendar widgets, the best one I've found to show week view.

Oh and LightFlow, definitely.

I tried beautiful widgets but it seemed out of resolution for me and ended up using HD Widgets which, imho, looked much better.

Or maybe she isn't a lesbian.

I believe you have to allow location settings with your GPS.

gotta add NOVA launcher to this list. if you download it and don't change any settings, it IS the stock launcher. why not give yourself the option for more customization though? they have put in so many things that should have been standard in ICS.

I like Beatiful Widgets, but also (if I can afford to buy this thing next month) Oruxmaps. It's the best stand alone GPS app that you can create offline maps with IMHO. Does tracks and everything else.

Yaah, Oruxmaps!

Tasker, but I haven't been able to get it to work on ICS yet. It keeps crashing on me. aCar is also great for keeping track of when I need to have things checked and what sort of mpg's I'm getting.

I like Fancy Widgets. You can assign what apps open when you touch different areas of the widget. Examples: I touch the minutes and it opens my stop watch and timer app, Hours opens my alarm clock, date opens the calendar, weather icon opens my weather bug app. You can assign any app you want to the 8 different areas, it also has an option to display your battery percentage in the widget next to the date.

Widgetsoid - I tried the individual widgets and although they were nice, but I really liked having the toggles in my notification bar instead. Customizable too!

Nova Launcher - enhanced ICS home screen plus reclaim your screen where the google search bar is!

I think Android Sync Manager is a must,especially since they use the new file system.
Skype is now working thanks to a fixed patch by XDA developers. File Picker is one of my favs as well as titanium backup. Astro file manager is one of the first apps I install on it.

What is the paypass locator for? Do you have to have a Mastercard to use this? Or is this just an app to locate stores that use google wallet?

Some pretty cool apps to try out listed so far.

One thing though if someone could clarify it for me. This Amazon App store, for the free app, do you have to have a credit card for the "free" app? I tried to download todays and it said there was a problem with my payment method

You'll need to put a CC on your account. It won't get charged. I honestly don't know why they need it, but I put mine in anyways. I kinda made a big fuss over it, but I guess it wasn't that big of a deal breaker.

I guess I'll add some more apps.

Movie/Flixster = nice apps for showtimes from theaters and movie reviews
Shazam = Alternative to Soundhound, does the same thing
Riptide GP = one of the best looking water racing games
Talking Tom = good apps for kids, mindless funny quotes repeated back to you
Spectral Soul = closest thing to Final Fantasy Tactics
Cut the rope = clever game that tests your brain
CarHome Ultra = nice car app

Well I know it runs in the background all the time even if you don't have a Google+ profile/account. I disabled it since I don't use Google+ (or facebook or myspace for that matter), but I haven't noticed any change in battery life.

In fact my phone burned through at least 14% of the battery with the screen off and no apps running while I was sleeping.

I have really been enjoying circle launcher. I have a clean home screen and just touch the center and have about 20 apps pop up like magic. Its great.

I like Parcels a lot, I do quite a bit of online shopping and it's nice for tracking the packages.

What features does PowerAMP have that you like? I was unimpressed with the stock music player on my Incredible. I just got the Nexus last night and haven't used the music player at all, but I might want to look for something new.

Aldiko anyone? This phone makes a great little book reader.

FartDroid. All in all it's not that great, and the banner ads are worse than they used to be, but when your phone starts farting Jingle Bells... it'll always get a chuckle.

On a more serious side:
I love using Audio Manager (paid or free).
AndChat - best IRC client I've used for Android thus far.
Aldiko - and one of these days I swear I'll actually finish reading all those H.P. Lovecraft books I downloaded.
ConvertPad - unit conversions of all sorts
EStrongs File Explorer - switched to it when Astro got outta beta. After it updated to include multi-version backups and now even color coding... I love the app.
A Flashlight app - The one I used on my Droid is no longer on the market, so I went with Tiny Flashlight + LED. I saw how the Dev donated several phones for the Phandroid contest and thought that was pretty damn cool of him.
Tricorder - no longer on the market, but I had it backed up from before it got pulled. It crashes sometimes but it's still freaking cool.

this wasn't on my list of must haves until the update yesterday, but TinyFlashlight will now let you shake the phone on the lockscreen to activate the rear LED on ICS devices. this is a lifesaver when you need a flashlight fast, as is generally the case.

Since switching from LauncherPro to ADW EX I discovered Android Pro Widgets. 14 different widgets for bookmarks, calendar, twitter, etc... It also has theme options. Even the free version has a great looking theme.

I'm getting my Gnex on Monday!
