    In no particular order:

    K-9 Mail (good replacement email app - will handle your Gmail via IMAP as well as other IMAP and POP3 accounts)
    Dolphin Browser (good replacement to the default web browser)
    BeebPlayer (watch BBC iPlayer TV)
    Record It (if you're in the UK and a Sky+ customer)
    eBuddy (does all sorts of Instant Messaging - I only use it for MSN)
    Shazam (for those times when you hear a song and want to know what it is)
    Twidroid (if you use Twitter)
    Aldiko (for eBooks)
    Astro (useful file manager)
    B-Folders (secure storage of information)
    Barcode Scanner (to scan barcodes from web sites and install search for software)

    Metal Detector - just cos it's a cool little show-off

    Games:
    Robo Defence, Project INF, PapaStacker, Flight Director

    Just my thoughts.
