    I've seen many lists at PCworld and such, but I can't say I get so much out of them. I'd like to hear from you, which apps you think is the best for Andriod. So, let's try to get this list to 101 (and maybe more!). I'll begin:

    1) Opera Mobile (needs no further introduction!)

    2) ASTRO file manager (makes browsing the files easy, just like explorer on the PC)

    3) DropBox (If my phone gets stolen, I'll have all my files handy!)

    4) Mobilsle Notes - To Do (the best to do lists available - costs money though).

    5) Documents to Go (Have to have it for Word, Excel, .pdf reader)

    Now, you can continue! Which apps do you use, and why are they awesome (or handy :cool:)?

    10) Swype

    If your phone gets stolen the thief will have all your files handy as well. And can remove/trash them!

    @DoDoarant. You can password protect it (built in), you can reset it remotely, and you can also use HTC Sense to reset the whole shebang. There's a lot of options. And you can set it to have a backup of previous dates. Let's keep the thread rolling.

    11) 3G Watchdog (if you have a data plan with limits, it will be really valuabe as it displays how many MB you've used the past month, and how long it is until you've reached your quota).

    Already have a list for this with way more than 101 app's on it.

    It's the sticky on this forum entitled:-

    http://androidforums.com/android-applications/335976-best-category-app-thread-list.html

    which already contains people's idea of "best" app's.

    Hope this helps. :D

    @Ironass. Yes that helped. +1 for your post.
    But the thread you linked to lacks a "Best backup app" category...

    Best backup app is Titanium, and gets my nod because its files are compressed smaller than MyBackup Pro. Basically, both apps mentioned backs up everything, even save game data.

    Please show me how or where to set a password in DropBox, because I don't see it (e.g. in the Preferences).

    No thanks, I can handle only one date at a time.

    pr17, regarding # 28... You haven't tried Trillian then. Unless I have no connection it never drops.

    I'm surprised this one's not here..
