    I have so many. I had to see what I actually used most in a day.

    1. Tasker - Right now I have tasker turning off all my volumes during my sleep times during the week. Any of my favorite contacts will still ring the phone, otherwise not a peep. It will also text me the phone's location when I text the phone a certain set of numbers. Love Tasker.

    2. SetCPU - Every good rooter should have this app.

    3. Kindle - I read, what can I say

    4. Angry Birds - I only need 2 more golden eggs.

    5. VideoCam Free - I take a lot of video instead of pictures. This app opens the video recorder instead of the camera app.

    In interest of full disclosure, I wrote #5. I needed an app for that and couldnt find one.

    My $0.02 on task killers: generally not needed. However, if you own an older or lower end android phone knock yourself out. Just remember that it is an app and occupies memory like any other app.

    2. F-Plus(blue notify)- Sends facebook notifications to your phone
    3. Swype(most recent version)- replacement keyboard
    4. Beautiful widgets- Clock Widget and weather widgert for home screen
    5. HideNseek- Allows ability to hide pictures video and files you dont want people seeing

    6. Estrongs File explorer- allows app backup blue tooth sharing and root access: pwns Astro
    7. Adobe flash- watch anything
    8. gochat pro- the hands down absolute best dedicated facebook chat app

    9. Auto killer(root only) -automatic task manager. install and forget :)
    10. Set cpu(root only) drastically improve battery life or phone speed by manually tweaking your phones processing power
    *11*. *AdFree* (root Only)- Block ALL ads in non paid apps and browser

    I can go on forever but anyway theres so many good ones (13. handcent, 14. Music Junk). If any apple fanboy ever tells you that iphone apps are better you should go on the market and download 15."caller id faker"; i promise you he will be rendered speechless.

    1. LauncherPro Plus
    2. Tasker
    3. Calorie Counter by FatSecret
    4. Handcent

    google listen
    good podcatcher for keeping up on my techy podcasts.

    audio/spoken word books. best when used with a subscription. audible.com/twit2 for a discount.

    tower raiders
    I can't believe how long I've played this game. I'm trying to beat it's many, many maps on hard atm.

    battery time
    only reason I use it is for the % left on the status bar. Just wish android would let me replace the stock icon.

    led desire light
    use the camera flash led as a torch. I love being able to vary the light brightness. This app is designed for the HTC desire though.

    Sleep timer
    I'll add a 6th since not everyone has a desire. set a timer to stop audio playback automatically.

    So if I have an unrooted Evo 4G, Task Killers don't really help save battery? It what ways can they be detrimental to your phone?
  10. chrlswltrs

    chrlswltrs Well-Known Member

    you just don't need task killers and they won't work on froyo anyways, froyo removed their ability to kill an app

    Congrats! :) I've lost a few pounds, but I use it more to "keep me honest" and as a preventative measure. It's definitely a great app.
  12. chrlswltrs

    chrlswltrs Well-Known Member

    Thanks. It is hard but this app definitely helps, once I lose another 70 lbs I am going to keep using the app to make sure it never comes back!

    For growing my movie/tv series collection:
    1) Torrent-fu - Remotely control torrents from my phone, includes bar code scanner and search
    2)IMDB - Just a well designed simple app by imdb. Find movies/tv shows, proceed to download using torrent-fu.

    Phone Security:
    1)Lookout - Find my phone when missing, set off alarm, backup stuff, antivirus. Just like knowing that if I lose my phone or have it stolen, it might just be a click away.

    1)Laucher Pro - of course
    2)Widget Locker - ""
    3)SwitchPro - nice toggle widget with transparent capabilities
    4)Beautiful Widgets - Fancy weather/clock widget

    Show off to friends apps:
    1)Layar - Virtual 3d app for seeing stuff around you. Add layars like shops, wikipedia, etc. Very cool.
    2)Google Sky Map - Of course
    3)Google Goggles

    And others:
    1)Gas Buddy - See gas prices anywhere. Great app.
    2)Score Mobile - nothing beats it. Great sports app.
    3)Skydroid - Great golf gps app.
    4)Vignette - Best camera app available. Worth the money.

    SWYPE = amazing
    8pen + learning curve = 10x better then swype
    angry birds

    set CPU

    Brian Rubin Well-Known Member

    Might you explain how 8pen is that good? I tried it and haaaaaaated it.

    Also, what's Blapk Market, if I might ask?
  24. blkbeltkid17

    blkbeltkid17 Well-Known Member Contributor

    i see it as really good because i never have to take my finger off my screen and i find typing a lot faster after you get over the learning curve that comes with knowing where all the letters are ... and you can set certain gestures to type in phrases you use the most like i have a counter clockwise circle and it prints out hey sup and i can send it...
    Blapk market is a referral only market where members free source .apk files to download aps to you phone (pre cracked paid apps)
  25. Hell yeah! I have a qwerty but still love swype to do things quickly in portrait mode. Only discovered Twicca today but finally its got mix of ui and features I've been after. Tweetdeck is too short of features, and twidroid is a little ugly and now has ads.
