    My current favs are

    I go into preferences and change my dock to "Froyo Wide" then change all icons so they are in color. I also limit to 3 homescreens (all i need). Then i go into general settings under Hidden Apps, and i hide all the nonsense i will never even use, but cant/wont uninstall. Then i increase the speed of everything to max, so it snaps

    One of those sexy girl apps, but this one is pretty decent! Lets you zoom in or save. Also if there are 15 pics of one girl, you can hit the BACKWARD button to skip right to the good stuff hehe.

    Handcent SMS
    Im not a fan of the stock look of SMS on the Android. With Handcent it allows me to give it that "bubble" look similar to the iphone, but then customize it even more. And i cannot believe its free!

    Check Appbrain and read this very subforum. If you really want them there are plenty of app recommendation and top apps threads.
