    Lots of good apps listed, so to not be redundant:

    Juice Defender is a must have, for 2.2 Task Killers don't work
    Fring - if you are running out of minutes you can call out for 1.2 cents a minute
    Skype - Same as fring, but you can talk to other Skype friends free

    Virgin . . . please let us delete the crap apps!!

    I love these :)

    What camera app do you guys use? In another thread someone recommended I try Camera Advance Lite, but I can't sort out how to use it. Where do the pictures go?!

    The stock has worked best for me and I use pic say pro for editing. I usually don't like stock but this is the best I've found.

    Go Launcher
    Widgetzoid2.0
    1TapCleaner
    WeatherBuddy+InstantRadar (much less space than Weatherbug which "was" a favorite)
    Folder Organizer
    MultiPictureLive WP

    Others I can't live without but not used daily:

    Minimalistic Text
    Dropbox
    Skyfire
    CarMaintenance
    ShootMe
    ColorNote
    QuickPic

    Does Anyone know if the Beautiful Live Weather app has the windshield wiper thing when it rains? The HTC Does, but not sure if the LG app is the same

    Mine does not have the wipers. :(

    Edit: While it does not have it on the live wallpaper, it does have it on the view weather screen with Beautiful Widgets.

    I just tried an app I really like. "Bookmark Tree Manager". I was looking for a way to organize bookmarks with folders, not really caring what the browser did with them. This app lets you change text size and color, create your own folders, and keeps track of what you're doing in the default browser (and has auto back-up feature). Really nice and small app size (this is set on LARGE text for my old eyes), I've tried 4 or 5 others.

    Thank you for sharing this app! I searched for something like this awhile back and never found anything that suited me, and this app is perfect! I think my fav part is you can enlarge the text... my eyes are old, too! :D

    I've been use Xscope browser a few days because it's fast, small, and has nice bookmark links... but I just tried Opera Mini (hadn't tried it a long time), and I must say, it's also fast and has a lot of really nice features. It's UI is very nice, graphics seem clearer, web page handling is nice (option for "single column" is nice), nine custom speed dial links on home page, does not build up cache at all, and you can add search engines to the search bar! Also after a few days, with 100 bookmarks added, the app is still only 880mb... and cache never build up.

    Only I don't like or haven't found the answer for is how to import bookmarks (from default browser). Not a big deal since I use Tree Bookmarks I mentioned previously.

    ADW Ex launcher (adw gets no love! It's much better than LP, IMO)
    Android Pro Widgets
    SwiftKey X
    Simple Text Icons
    Get Glue
    Moon + Reader
    Minimalistic Text
    Wikidroid
    Folder Organizer

    Edit: I just read the last few posts and got reminded of a few more:
    Ghosttown
    Quick pic
    Simiclock
    Go dialer (love the speed dial)
    Color note
    On call end (makes it so you go back the the homescreen after a call instead of your recent call list. Why don't we have a built in option for this, I ask?)

    I've noticed that myself.

    Right now my favorites are:
    Google Docs (I have most of my favorite recipes in .odt and I copy/paste them to my Google Docs and then read them on my phone while cooking)
    Google Voice
    Plants Vs Zombies

    I use Go SMS and GO EX Launcher as well.

    But the champs of my app list are Link2SD, Root Explorer and the stuff that makes root possible.

    Heehee. This is one addiction that's actually good for your brain. :) Most people think crosswords are an old fart thing, but I've been doing them since I was in my late 20s, thanks to the influence of my Grandmother (who just passed in Jan at 101, and was as sharp as a tack until the last 6 months of her life).

    Toolish13, is that the Grooveshark to control your PC, or to actually listen to Grooveshark on your phone? Which App?
    Thanks.
