    So I know this forum is on its way down as many people have moved on to new phones and such, but this is more of an Android question.

    Now that we have all had about a year or two with Android and have tested thousands of apps/ widgets/ home replacements etc. what are your absolute MUST HAVES? Things that you use on a daily basis... (rooted or not, wtvr)

    For me, I am rooted with CM7.1 and although I used to use LauncherPro+ they rarely updated so now I use Go Launcher and am quite satisfied.

    Widgets - Beautiful Widgets (Smaller Home) and Pure Calendar Widget have been on my phone since forever and considering I only have 3 screens I think they are kind of important.

    Folder Organizer is a must for anyone who doesn't want the iPhone feel of having all your home screens covered in apps.

    Apps - Astro, DW Dialer (best replacement dialer I have found), Handcent, Pulse (RSS), Read It Later, Titanium Backup, Miren Browser are crucial for me

    Games - Air Control, Backgammon, Chess, Burn the Rope, Cut the Rope, Hexxagon

    While there is a lot more on my phone, these are my "Best Of" based on how often I use them.

    I am always looking to change and add to my phone, its why after a year and a half my phone still feels new to me.

    So please comment and post your MUST HAVEs...

    I'm going to skip some of the ones already posted....

    Friendcaster - facebook app, you can *zip* (hide) entries based on key word or person. I think that is the main thing that sets it apart from other FB apps

    Gesture Search - search your phone by drawing gestures. I use it when I'm too lazy to scroll thru the app drawer. But it can be used to search for anything on your phone (including contacts)

    Gesture Search Bar - used with Gesture Search so that a long press on the search button brings up gesture search

    Hurricane Hound - I live near the Gulf of Mexico so I like to keep an eye on the location of the nearest hurricanes

    Sign - It's a speed dial app based on unique gestures/swipes that are set up by you

    SlideIt Keyboard - you slide your finger across the keyboard to enter text

    Timeriffic - control mute, vibrate, wifi & airplane mode based on times you've set up (not as powerful as tasker but easy for me to use)
