    Handcent- lots of customizations than the default msging app.
    Missed reminder- missed call-sms-mail... alerts. sound,vibrate,led blink watver howevr u want the alert.
    no lock- the default lock out can be disabled.
    astro file manager.
    zedge and flikie wallpapers hd- for wallpapers,tones etc.
    app protector- to lock specific apps.
    look out- antivirus( not sure whether thrs better ones out thr).
    sound manager- one touch sound settings changes.
    There are lots more waiting to be tried out. will post more as I check them out

    I came across Aloqa by accident.

    It basically hooks you up with information based on your current location e.g. Cinema listings, ATMs, Restaurants, Pubs/Clubs, Events.

    Links in with maps so can navigate to them too if in unfamilar surroundings.

    You can customise it. There's even walks, cycle routes, scenic drives etc..

    I was impressed and its Free! :D

    Barcode Scanner; To activate QR codes for apps
    Airhorn; For those that require attention
    Google Translate; Translates and speaks in many languages

    Good apps. You forgot Google Goggles - removes the need for barcode scanner AND google translate. Just take picture, leave the rest to goggles.

    As for unit converter, with Voice Search, you can just say into your phone 14 miles in kilometres and the answer comes straight back at you!

    Finally, despite privacy concerns, I think the future lies with Google Lattitude - that's an app that raises as many possibilities as problems, but there are some fun things on the way I'm sure! Obviously it can be tied in to Buzz if you want it.

    Whoops - forgot to add Gallery3D, if you use Picasa this is a must.
