    this is a list of the better apps for the i1. not in any particular order.
    please add more any if you care to share.

    SLACKER- you can cache music thru wifi for later play when not on wifi network.(free trial for 14days i believe, then one must pay to keep service)

    *PANDORA- great music app when connected to wifi otherwise keeps hesitating when on 2G network

    *IHEARTRADIO- also great app

    *XIIALIVE- massive catalog of stations

    LISTEN- you can also cache podcasts for use when not connected to wifi.

    *YOUTUBE- great app. havent tried uploading anything yet.

    FREETUBE- youtube player and youtube video downloads to SD card.


    LIVE HOLDEM- best live multiplayer poker.

    JEWELS- fun addictive puzzle game.

    AIR CONTROL- another addictive game.



    EBUDDY - this has got to be one of the best chat apps.
    works for msn, facebook, gmail, aim, icq, myspace, yahoo



    FXCAMERA- i must say i like this one because i can set it as a widget and the shutter can be the round middle button. press to focus and release to shoot. only wished it had a toggle on/off on the screen for the flash.



    COLOR NOTE- this has got to be one of the most useful apps out there. nice and simple.

    ADVANCED TASK KILLER- best out there. will help you keep battery life. a must IMO

    *WIFI ANALYZER- will connect and disconnect to wifi when needed. and great tool.


    CRAIGSPHONE-post to craigslist and upload photos from phone. just make sure you take the photos in lowest resolution.

    PKT AUCTION- ebay shopping

    good list. i will be adding some. i would add mp3 download free version to the music category. i have that on my phone and i download tones of music then plug my phone into the computer to rename all the songs. I like it. I don't know know legal it is or how many viruses circulate but it works for me.

    *iheartradio- picks up stations from around the country and maybe inernationally as well.

    */xiialite- i like it cause it allows you to search by kbps meaning you play it without wifi but it may cut out after a minute or two, but I agree best results if used with wifi

    *videobox- allows you to download and watch youtube videos from your sd card.

    *ustream viewer- allows you to watch livefeeds off of ustream

    */scanner buddy- gives you livefeeds to tons and tons of feeds from all over the world. again works without wifi but cuts off to buffer from time to time so for best results use with wifi.

    */prankdial- this app is great does exactly what the name says also works without wifi(takes along time to listen to playback of prankcall) so for best results use with wifi

    *youtube.apk- found it on several forums and it allows you to view youtube vids from android browser as long as your connected to wifi.(app not located on market)

    calender pad- comes with an awesome widget that you can use to see entire month on one mainscreen.

    yellowbook- with this you can voice search businesses and with the gps it auto locates closes places to your location and gives number, address and directions. think you may even be able to give reviews on the business.

    signals- gives you different radio communication codes. works well with scanner buddy.

    bump- allows you to share files, pics contact info with other android phones simply by tapping them together.

    tikl touch- another way to contact other android users using a sort of PTT system.
    shares contact info(phone number) with all users when contacting more then one person at a time. So might wanna make sure they know each other.

    */the weather channel- comes with some handy dandy widgets.

    advanced launcher- gives you up to 10 main screens. makes the phone so much more bad ass.

    craigsnotifications- allows you to get updates on specific things you are looking for.

    advanced task killer- It's theee essential app.

    */wifinder- seems to have a father range to search for open wifi signals

    barcode scanner- its all in the name.

    syncmypix- Lets you sync your friends facebook profile pics with your phones contact list.

    */maildroid- works better then the default exchange/imap4/pop3 mail app. IT LETS YOU PERMANENTLY DELETE MAIL!

    social media
    */facebook for android- its facebook

    */myspace mobile- i know i know who uses myspace i really dont know just havent deleted my account yet =P
    (both come with pretty decent widgets.)

    *needs wifi to work

    */ doesn't need wifi but it is recommended for best results.

    From what ive seen. you can't watch anything on youtube. i still can't

    @Respect: True the phone out of the box doesn't support Youtube. First you have to download a Youtube apk.file off the interweb. Then if you have a wifi connection and the apk.file installed onto your phone. Youtube does work with the app and the webkit browser.

    look it up buddy it's a fact.

    cnet news,
    LiveHome (auto orienting homescreen with customizable icons),
    Contactos (the only contact sharing app that works/looks well on i1 unfortunately no dc field),
    NBA Gametime duh,
    TuneWiki (if you like to listen to the songs in your collection as opposed to random songs chosen by an app),
    QuickContact is great for fast contact inputs without having to enter menus,
    Picasa Tool is a breeze to use and runs smooth on the i1

    Youtube works just fine..
    However you have to find version 1.3 (or less) as thats the only version that works with our 1.5 OS system..
    Any version above 1.3 will not work..

    Do some research before you complain that an app doesnt work~

    Text Messaging
    ChompSMS (chompSMS) - Free text messaging application with LOTS of customization options. Simple and easy to use, great alternative to the default program. It looks just like the Iphone messaging (the little balloons).
