    After having my Droid for a short while, I said that I would be amazed if I had more than 10 apps installed at the one-year mark. Clearly I was wrong. But here's my list:

    ADW.Launcher/LauncherPro (haven't decided)
    Android Agenda Widget
    Astrid
    Astro File Manager
    CallTrack
    CarDockV2
    Carrr Matey
    Dialer One
    Pandora
    RPN Calc
    Tasker
    Google Voice
    Where
    Wifi Analyzer

    I have others installed, but rarely use them, if at all, and they'll probably get uninstalled. Most, if not all, of these apps are a reflection of the creativity of the developers, but some are also an indication of where Android falls short. Either way, it's great that all these apps are available.

    Shush - it silences the phone for whatever time you set. No more missed calls after a movie.

    A lot of mine are listed here, but I'll have to go through and see exactly which ones are and which are not.

    Otherwise, any app I have installed on my phone I have installed b/c I use it. If I do not use an app, I generally uninstall it.
