    hmmm theres dozens of these threads about must have apps.... you could probably search for them.....

    I personally go through apps all the time..... probably install and uninstall 3-5 a day to test them out a couple days and get rid of the ones I dont like......

    there are a few that I absolutely use all the time and wont get rid of ..... of course everyone has their own opinions about "must have" because every user is different

    my list of wont get rid of:

    weatherbug...... for weather of course
    tapatalk...... for forums
    barcode scanner...... use this thing everyday several times
    pdanet..... for tethering
    musicjunk ..... for downloading MP3s
    ringroid...... for making ringtones from MP3s
    sportstap......... for tracking sports scores, etc
    astro....... file manager
    google voice........ for google voice :)
    lookout....... mobile security

    others that Ive tried and liked but didnt keep because I dont use them daily:

    wifi analyzer.... gives info on wifi signals available
    pandora....... a music streamer
    meridian...... media player
    gps test....... gives info on gps etc
    gps status....... gives info on gps etc
    call confirm..... prevents accidental dialing
    call filter...... lets you block numbers
    home switcher...... lets you switch launchers easily
    adw launcher...... a different desktop launcher
    launcher pro......... another desktop launcher
    camera360..... the best camera app Ive seen
    unit converter..... handy for converting measurements etc

    as far as games well thats entirely up to ones tastes........ I personally like:

    bonsai blast
    sudoku
    what the doodle
