    for me Tasker, Astrid todo go launcher is a must
    TASKER
    with this combined with an app called secure settings i can do the following things
    1 when i am at home my screen is turned on by a swipe, at work i have to use pattern unlock to unlock the phone, in my car its just a swipe to use the phone.
    2 when i enter my car the phone goes into car mode different ringtone etc, when i exit the car i end up with a time stamp telling me what time i left, it also remembers where my car is parked this is for parking meters and to relocate my car later on by pushing a simple button
    3 when i get home tasker turns off my data, changes my ringtone and turns off the bluetooth
    4 when at work my ringtone is the start to "seether remedy" as its a noisy place
    ASTRID
    this is probably the best to do out there, it has also a web based unit and syncy with your google account, you can include others in your todo via email and it works in with tasker as an example if i am at work astrid knows this via tasker and will remind me i need to take my tools home, or if i go to the supermarket it reminds me to get beer!!
    3 GO LAUNCHER
    this is a better launcher which also comes with a very cool new wallpaper skin
    if you want to know how to to this just ask

    1. Sugarsync/Dropbox
    2. Go SMS Pro (way better than stock SMS app)
    3. Nova/Apex Launcher. Both have free versions with paid versions with more features. Both are more fluid and smooth than Go Launcher as well.

    Chrome

    - Just the best because I have all my book marks and websites synced.
    - It is also quick

    Pocket
    - I love this app because I can just save any video, picture or website that I find interesting in any way. I have it installed on my tablet, phone and as a Chrome extension on my laptop.

    Google Drive
    - I found this to be very useful, especially that I go to school. Everything can be saved here and just easily shared.
