    Barcode Scanner - To scan QR codes
    Quick Setting - To turn off 3G
    LockPatternOnOff - To one-click enable your lockpattern
    AppsInstaller - FAST way to install any app that you may have gotten from a non-market (i.e. LEGAL) source
    HistoryEraser - Clears call logs, browser history, market searches, etc
    Ringdroid - Make your own ringtones, alarms, notification tones from music on your SD card
    SysTray Monitor - Displays percentage of battery left on the notification bar (and/or a few other things)
    Google Voice - ... if that's your kind of thing...

    There are a few others too, but I'm not sure what you use your phone for so they may be pointless :)


    If you are going to root (get admin controls of) your phone, there are a ton more!


    Welcome aboard BTW!! :D

    You won't be the only one reading the posted answers. Got my Epic (moving from an old Treo) the first day available from Sprint, and I've been looking ever since!

    I really like K-9 Mail for email.

    Sirius/XM-since I already subscribe to this satellite radio service for my car.

    Enjoy your Epic!

    I'm a newbie, as well. A couple days ago when I first got this I found a Redbox app but now I can't seem to find it again. Anybody know what might be going on with this? Is this typical of the Android Market, for apps to cycle in and out??

    **just to clarify, not the app with the so-called free codes, the app that located vending machines and permitted online reservations.

    I am a fan of these-

    Fildo (a music download app, like the notorious imusic)
    Astro (a file manager. haven't had to use it yet, but I'm sure I will eventually)
    OI Safe password manager

    and these games are some of the funner games I've found:

    Gem Miner
    Robo Defense
    Parallel Kindom (the novelty of fighting slimes and direwolves on a map of my neighborhood wore off pretty quickly, but it's still worth looking at!)

    If you haven't installed AppBrain, do that first! Other (free!) apps that I like:

    Tiny Flashlight
    Relax and Sleep (a sleep machine)
    Google Places
    Scanner Radio (gets local police chatter)
    TripIt (forward/manage your itineraries)

    ShootMe, to get screen grabs of your phone. market says for rooted phones but worked on my non-rooted phone
    TuneIn radio - local hd radio stations
    Shazam - tells you the name of the song your hearing, in case you dont know but want to know
    NESoid - Nintendo emulator, just get the game roms online (doperoms.com is a good choice) and put them on the sd card and nesoid will play them, works awesome with the keyboard. Check the dev's other apps too, he has other systems along with the NES
    Handcent SMS - text messenger app that offers more options and flexibility than the stock app

    Anyone know the best app to replace SplashMoney? I really liked the features of that program with categories, budgets, reports, etc.

    Don't know if it was mentioned but I just found FOLDER ORGANIZER and it's fantastic!!! Lets you organize your apps by categories and put them in pop up folders on your home screen.
