    Hi all. This is my first post on here, so apologies for any faux pas! :)
    Anyway, I am soon to trade in my Nokia 5800 (horrible, horrible phone) for an HTC Hero/G2. I've been reading up on it and getting really excited about all the stuff I'll be able to do with an Android phone, but am a bit bamboozled by the sheer choice of apps available! :eek:
    So what I'm after is any recommendations for essential apps that I should download as soon as I get my new phone. I've seen the "Tips, tricks & Useful Apps" sticky, which does have some very interesting looking stuff in it, but just thought I'd check to see if anything else has been released that I should be aware of, as the sticky is about 3 months old now, and I know new apps are released all the time.
    I'll be using my Hero mostly for web access (Facebook, Hotmail, Youtube etc), listening to music, watching videos, maybe a bit of gaming and anything else that is fun and a bit geeky! I'm quite technically minded, so don't worry about confusing me with technobabble. In fact, I'm quite partial to a bit of technobabble! :D
    So if you can think of anything that a noob might need then please let me know!

    I've heard of Shazam, and I think I can work out what the 2nd and 3rd ones are, but what is Robo Defense?

    Cool. Whats the best music player app available at the moment? Also is there anything that will give better video recording quality? I've read that the Hero performs pretty poorly in that area.
