    Well.. sorry... but I can't put mine in a Free/vs Paid category.... cause, if I want it, I will just get it. Not a good way to traverse through life... but that's me, nonetheless. So... the ones I am really enjoying are:

    launcherpro-plus
    handcent (just got it a few hours ago!!) a FAVE!!
    AppProtector (my number ONE priority was password protecting my texts and emails... this app handles that flawlessly)
    Barcode scanner (not sure why I need it.. lol.. but someone at work said I HAD to have it... ha
    Beautiful Widgets
    Pandora (duh.. at least it's a "duh" for ME)
    Backgrounds (thousands of backgrounds to choose from)
    Ringdroid (LOVE, LOVE this one.. I'm going to post something about it with details)
    oh.. and Smart Keyboard.... <3 ahhhh T9 <3

    In terms of top 10 free I'd have to say:
    LauncherPro
    Pandora
    ShootMe
    Appbrain
    Asphalt5
    Fastest Droid *
    Google Maps
    Titanium BackUp
    Rom Manager
    Handcent
    In terms of paid I dont even have five paid but ESPN Radio is divine and Setcpu [which normally is paid but I got for free ;)] is going to be invaluable once I get some custom ROM's.
    Wow narrowing down to ten was/is tough I have easily over 100 apps/games and most are quite good

    * you guys have to try this one. I only DL'd it yesterday. It thru GPS is a 0-60app it also does 1/4mile and top speed. Very cool

    PAID:

    Launcher Pro Plus (most features are free, but I had no trouble paying to support such a great launcher)
    Root Explorer (useful, worth every penny, easy, and powerful)
    Beautiful Widgets (didn't need it on the Droid X, but I HATE Weatherbug)
    Pure Calendar Widget (absolute best calendar app/widget EVER, in my opinion)

    FREE:
    AutoKiller (makes other task killers looks absolutely silly - set to optimum)
    Wireless Tether (awesome, but needs root)
    Physx Live Wallpaper (a neat live wallpaper with very low system overhead)
    Google Navigator (stock on other droids, but still a fave)
    Tiny Flashlight + LED (I liked the motorola version better, but it didn't use the LED on this phone)
    Barcode Scanner (by ZXing Team - this is very useful when you need it)
    AutorunKiller (same dev as AutoKiller - I have this specifically kill one startup process on my phone: Verizon's 3G hotspot app)
    Kindle (they have so many free and cheap books. Love this app)
    Google Sky Map
    Dolphin HD Browser
    PDAnet (for the times when I can't do wifi and need to plug in)
    Battery Status Widget (on desktop for exact percent amount)
    Starfield 3D Live Wallpaper (total star trek, star wars, star anything geek)
    Google Earth (how can you NOT love this with the GPU on this phone???)
    Pandora Radio
    Google Translate
    Ringdroid

    Red text = root required

    Bold = Absolute must have, in my opinion

    Some might disagree with some of my items, but it might be helpful.

    Some things that I have are...

    Picasa Tool => Lets you upload to your google Picasa account (its the way I transfer my phone pictures to my computer and vice versa)

    SwitchPro Widget => Cool widget that lets you turn on/off stuff like wifi, gps, bluetooth, and brightness with a touch of a button

    SyncMyPix => syncs FB pictures to your contact icons

    Everything else was previously listed... hope these helped!

    Funny I made my list a week ago but if you asked me today I likely would have more than half my top 10 different. Everyday I think now I finally have enough apps/an app for everything and yet each and everyday I come across some post about an app I've never heard of. I truly wonder if I'll ever hit the bottom of the well.

    Anyone know a good sports app? I've just tried SportsTap, but the process seems to be running all the time and is battery draining...
