    I just received my unlocked g1 the other day. I was a hardcore i phone owner but now switched over. I am trying to find out all of the useful apps and if there is anyway i can get access to the paid apps? Also is there anyway i can download and read pdf or doc files?

    most of the good apps are free..with the exception of a few paid apps like HelloAIM ...

    the best apps i have found ... esp if your phone has root access..are the following:

    AK Notepad - best notepad app i have found..its descent
    Apps Installer - quick installer.. it searches for all the .apk install files and lets u install them
    Discover - if your desktop/other laptop is connected to the same wifi network as ur g1...you can have an ftp-like interface between g1 and the outside PC ..its a nice alternative to using USB wire
    Download Crutch - lets you download any file type directly from default browser
    Droidsans tweak tool - tool to enable autorotate
    gmote - cool app that lets you use ur g1 as a mediacenter remote for you PC and also you can use your G1's screen as a touchpad and move your cursor.. go to the program website to read more about it..its really cool
    Imeem mobile - really good 3g/edge/wifi radio ..lots of artists and very customizable
    jetcet pdf - only app that can really open/read pdfs..not that great but its better than nothing
    quickpedia - its wikipedia on ur phone it renders really well
    ringdroid - take full mp3 songs from your music collection and assign which part of the song you want and it makes a ringtone file out of it..very cool
    shazam - same as iphone shazam app
    shopsavvy - scan barcodes with this app - searches for best prices online
    skype - its a skype app with incoming/outgoing skype call support
    SMS popup - really nice app ..very simple but i love it.. it pops up as a translucent small window with the name and sms right there so you can see it ... with close and reply options right there
    unzip - unzip utility for g1
    video player - the best video player i found .. it supports the default codecs that g1 naturally supports but it also has a cool auto-rotate feature when playing videos...very nice

    I do not have root access. Should I get root access or look into it? I also am not able to look at paid apps.
