    Just got my Motorola DROID by FedEx overnight and I'm playing around, looking for what neat things I can do with it. I'm so excited, it's such a pretty piece of electronics. It's almost like I'm bouncing from excitement inside (but keeping it calm externally since I'm at work)

    That's why I'm here... trying to figure out which ones those are.

    Too bad my signal inside this building is all but completely blocked, I just have to make a list to download later I guess.

    The essential apps that I would recommend (and that I use) are:

    Advanced Task Killer - to kill those annoying apps that are written poorly for android and don't close on their own/use loads of battery (don't set it to run all the time though)

    AK Notepad - simple notes app

    ASTRO - file manager app

    Barcode Scanner - very useful for finding apps, also pretty cool

    DroidLight - see in the dark using the dual-LED

    Goggles - very cool visual search function with google

    Google Sky Map - fun app for finding constellations

    Google Voice - adds a second number to your phone, if you have a gv account

    handyCalc - graphing/scientific calculator, huge features set

    Key Ring - get those dumb rewards cards off your keychain and put them on your phone

    Maps - self explanatory, great for navigation, never get lost again

    Movies - with rottentomatoes reviews, great for finding a movie to go to

    Pandora - listen to streaming music for free

    Ringdroid - create your own custom ringtones

    SchottGunn and The Schwartz Unsheathed - mess around with your friends

    Shazam - identify music you don't know

    ShopSavvy - scan barcodes and find the best price for an item

    SMS Popup - sms notification app with quick reply, reply, close delete and custom notification settings

    SNesoid, NESoid and Gameboid - emulators, some of the best games for android can be played this way

    Where's My Droid - never lose your phone again, text your phone a keyboard and it turns your volume up and rings if you lost your phone and it's on silent

    Where - find gas stations, restaurants, yellow pages stuff etc.

    Wikimobile - wikipedia for your phone
