    Let's get this started in anticipation for tomorrow when we can get our hands on the new phones. I'm an Android newbie, but I've scouted out a few apps I plan to download pretty quickly (don't know the exact names for some of them).

    Full suite of Google apps (maps, calendar, navigation, night sky, goggles, etc)
    ESPN
    Time
    Barcode Scanner
    MapMyRide
    Level/compass

    Will also look for a good hiking/camping GPS-type app (eg, an app that will show me where i am on a map, hopefully without 3g service), a variety of sports apps, some games, who knows what else.

    Especially for those more experienced Android users, what are your "essential" apps for the Fascinate? Help us get started right!

    Here are the things I am going to download as soon as I get my phone:


    • Google Maps
    • Launcher Pro
    • Barcode Scanner
    • LED Flashlight
    • Facebook
    • Solitaire
    • Sudoku
    • Cubed (Although I am still not sure about this one yet. I am hearing that the music player for the Fascinate is pretty fantastic)
    Those are the basics for now. I will download more apps as I see fit, or as I start to need more apps for various things.

    Appbrain - has a similar feature to appaware, also lets you install apps from your PC
    Astro - great file browser
    Audible - self explanatory, plays audible books
    Craigsnotifica - best craigslist viewer/search, can run in the background and search for your terms
    Fox News - great news app, runs a little slow sometimes
    Fring - free video/voice calling to other fring users

    Wireless Tether - self explanatory
    XBMC Remote - awesome if you have something running xbmc on your network

    Thanks for the input. Several there that I've thought about adding but forgot about. Can't wait to get my phone this afternoon and start downloading.
