    I am new to Android (and frankly, decent smartphones in general) but I have been very impressed with Pandora. StreamFurious also works well.

    Pandora works beautifully.

    I am a BlackBerry refugee, I had it on my BlackBerry and I would have been very upset if it didn't work.

    Hmm, I'm going to have to try Wifi On/Off again because it didn't work for me, same with Bluetooth On/Off but I'd really like to have both working.

    EDIT: Ok, I'm an idiot - I didn't know how to add widgets before this. Wifi On/Off works perfectly for me now. Bluetooth On/Off doesn't work though, it just sits there always off.

    I'm happy to add Locale to the list.

    For those that don't know, Locale is an app that can automatically change your phone settings based on your GPS location, time of day, etc.

    At first, I couldn't get it to find my GPS location. I ran google maps to see if it could find my location, and it did, effortlessly. I immediately went back to Locale and this time it found my location just fine.

    The Power Control widget that comes with the phone allows turn on/off of wifi, GPS, bluetooth and synch, without having to download any extras, and seems to do the job nicely... It also lets you adjust the brightness.

    Here is a list of Apps that have worked for me as of today:


    • Bubble - A handy level app

    • ASTRO File Manager - Solid app that lets you manage the files on your SD card

    • TasKiller free - Great app for seeing what is currently running and it lets you kill all the running apps with one press on its widget.

    • ESPN News Widget - Great!

    • NBA Game Time Lite - Great app to get up to date NBA scores

    • FartDroid - Why not?

    • WeatherBug - Works great. Puts the temperature on the top left side of your notification bar.

    • Pandora and Slacker Radio - Both work great

    Games

    • Doom for Android - Tough to control looks sweet
    • aiMinesweeper - Great minesweeper game
    • Baseball Superstars 2009 - Awesome baseball game
    • NESoid Lite - NES Emulator, I now have 400+ Original Nintendo Games that work well. Though the controls with the DPad and A+B buttons take getting used to.
    • SNESoid Lite - Same thing but SNES emulator. Works pretty well.

    +1 I tried both. Weather bug detects your location from your GPS. Weather channel asks you to enter your location.

    I have the free versions of the nes, snes, and genesis. If no rom is opened, and you close the program, they all trigger a force close.

    As it's NFL Sunday, SportsTap has quickly vaulted to the top of the list.
    lastpass is also a fav of mine from the PC, but the integration on the Droid is not quite as good as far as I can tell.
