    Since the Droid comes out Friday and I'm sure everyone wants to be all set to play with their new toy, I figured it'd might be a good idea to compile a list of people's favorite apps (preferably with a short description of what they do).

    Just a thing to think about to make everyone who is just entering the android world (raises hand) a bit easier.

    So what apps can you not live without?

    To me the only MUST HAVE/Can't live without are:

    Advanced Task Killer Free
    eBuddy
    AK Notepad
    Layar

    Although the music player in the hero should suck so I guess you will need another one for that =) And prop something for a cooler homescreen like ahome/pandahome or what they are called XD

    Check out this list - Google Maps - 20 Android Apps: Our Favorites - Tom's Guide

    On my own list in a Word document that look interesting or necessary:

    • Flyscreen - Lock screen customization
    • Locale - Location Based settings
    • Shopsavvy, Barcode Scanner, CompareEverywhere (will try them all out)
    • MobileDefense (find your lost phone, remote wipe)
    • Ringdroid (make your own ringtones from songs)
    • Pandora (internet radio)
    • Shazam (listens to songs and finds name and artist)
    • SMS Popup (popup notifications for SMS)
    • Facebook
    • Pure Grid (calendar widget that looks like HTC's widget)
    • Gasbot (find the cheapest gas)
    • GPS OnOff (on/off switch for GPS)
    • WiFi OnOff (on/off switch for WiFi)

    yeah and i have typical internet explorer 8. how are we supposed to research app before you invest in phone. Phones looks and sounds good and i know they will market new generations of the phones in future just like iphone but give us a chance, huh!

    I believe cyrket.com is for accessing from an Android OS phone, rather than a CPU or other mobile browser.

    I agree with Pandora and Shazam.

    I am comming from a WM device and have come to rely on apps like WmWiFi Router and PDAnet. I would also like to see a nice media player app with more media formate support an a better UI as well as a new browser that utilizes the pinch to zoom part of multiple touch.

    The first app you should download is the barcode reader. Then on many sites, there will be a bar code for the app. Take a picture of it and it will take you right there on your phone.
