    I must say this is the happiest I have been with a phone purchase and I purchase a new phone 1 - 2 times a year.

    I have been going through the apps store since yesterday and have downloaded a ton. The ones I have kept so far are as follow...

    • Calorie Counter
    • ES Task Manager
    • ES File Explorer
    • SkyDroid (Golf GPS)
    • Google Goggles
    • Google Maps Update
    • Golf Channel
    • Movies (app)
    • PKT Auctions Ebay
    • ShopSavvy
    • TMZ
    • Zedge

    What about you?

    If anyone has a good link to another thread, maybe in the android main section, with the best Android apps, I'd love to see it. There is a LOT of info out there, and frankly its a little intimidating for an Android newbie

    Applications Installed: (All Free)

    Must Haves

    Handscent - Must have SMS App
    Google Voice - Must have FREE Vmail app
    Advanced Task Killer
    Astro File Manager

    Fun Apps

    Google Goggles
    Google Sky Map
    Google Earth
    Google Translate
    Shazam
    Slacker Radio
    NFL Mobile
    Facebook
    Barcode Scanner (May get rid of depending on how Goggles does)
    Compass
    Color Flashlight -
    Movies (Flixter) - Manage Netflix
    LiveScores


    Games

    RoboDefense
    Labyrinth Lite
    Gem Miner


    Tried but didnt like/work

    Droid LED Flashlight (Doesnt work for Incredible yet - besides, the one listed above is better anyways)

    Swype - Jury is still out on this one but after about an hour of playing with it i went back to the stock Keyboard.


    Pay Apps i am considering and probably will buy soon:

    MLB At Bat ($15) I'm a baseball/fantasy junky and LiveScores is awful for anything other than tracking scores

    GolfLogix - ($40/year) - Golf GPS for Android. They give you a 24 hour free trial so i'm going to try it out next time out on the course. I've heard there's a free one (Skygolf?) but you have to map your own courses sometimes. I'd rather pay $40 and have the best.


    Apps I'm Looking for

    Battery Widget
    Any other cool apps/Games :D

    Rev3Remote: has HD videos for free

    PodKast Best podcatcher IMO(audio and Video)

    Earth Live Wallpaper!!!

    No Lock: stops the device from locking when it goes to sleep and can wake it with volume and trackball. Also has a widget.

    Wapedia: Best Wikipedia app, must have imo

    No call log: stops the device from defaulting to the call log when ending a made call

    The Landry Hat: mobile app for Dallas Cowboys fans!

    Mobile package tracker: must have if you track packages

    Spare Parts: helps manage battery usage and other tools as well

    Google Map Address: easy app for saving your location as well as saving navigation favorites

    Keeper password: encrypted password keeper

    Openhome: Home replacement
