    Hey, grafc, have you tried IP Cam Viewer? I tried Tiny DVR (hoping it really would act like a DVR :p, but it didn't :(). Its a nice app too and seems to work well. But IP Cam Viewer is awesome...the app developer, Robert Chou is constantly adding support for new cameras, etc. Just wanted to give you a heads-up.

    Cheers!

    Launcher Pro Plus has to be at the top of my list. I purchased the "plus" so that I could size icons and widgets on peripheral screens. Launcher Pro Docks and Icons complete the customization package, for me, with the exception of "colors," an app that allows for selecting a solid color of your screen (I use black).

    Screen Off (by Seltzer, there are several apps by that name).

    Better Cut.

    Live Scores.

    MyCast Weather.
     
  11. I love ADW Launcher. Sick amount of customization for your home screen. And free, which is nice. (buy an add-on to support the dev. He deserves it.)

    Note Everything Pro for lists, checklists, and note taking. Bought the pro version for the ability to stick notes in the notification bar and checklists.

    Android Agenda Widget for keeping track of important dates, tasks, and work stuff. It displays multiple calendars and my Google Tasks when its integrated with...

    Dato GTasks. Nuff said.

    Quick Profiles. Allows control over volume, ringtones, screen brightness with one click. Handy when going from home to the cubicle to a meeting. Also, I can finally switch my humorous work ringtone and a sedate home ringtone with a touch. The work ringtone scared my kids (its the Gorillaz "M1A1" sample from Dawn of the Dead...)

    Probably:

    Tweetdeck
    Evernote
    Kindle
    Lastpass
    Dropbox
    Google Voice
    Dropbox
    Quick Settings
    Vlingo
    ESPN Score Center
    Titanium Backup
    SMS Backup+
    Calltrack

    (Sorry, I can't limit myself to 5. I want all of these. Titanium, though, only because I rooted.)

    WHAT?!? We're going to have to take back your geek card if you keep that up.
    Dropbox is a far easier way to transfer files from a to b (to c to d to e etc...)
