    I'm kind of a comic book nerd (hey, if I can't be a nerd on androidforums, where can I be?) and I stopped buying comics a few years ago, there just wasn't enough incentive to spend $4 on a comic I'm going to read once and put in a box...

    but I've got to say comiXology on my android is amazing. If you like comics, check it out... it's a fantastic example of entertainment embracing the new medium, instead of trying to keep it out. $2 a pop for most of the big titles (DC, etc.) and $.99 for smaller indie comics-- a great way to read some fantastic titles you wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. Add to that nearly every title has a free first issue to see if you like it... and it's pretty cool.

    My favorite app so far (not counting widgets, launchers, replacements for stock apps...)

    edit: only problem is Marvel has an iOS exclusive... d'oh!

    I found handcent to be a lot slower than the text app that came with my Fascinate. I really like Firefox browser. I also like App 2 SD, Bible Verse Search (although I really look forward to the Laridian Pocket Bible Android interface, which will mean I can put all of my Bible study material on my Tab), Pandora, Kindle, AppStore. I'm new to the Tab, so I'm looking forward to trying Soundhound, Epocrates and Triage, gStrings Free (guitar, bass, etc. tuner), maybe Best Biking Roads, VTHokiesFans. Now that one of my VT sons has my Fascinate, and his twin has a Tab, I can see them using the Triathlon training apps, iMapMyRide and other cycling training apps, as well as swimming and running related apps. It will be interesting to see what one of them uses on his road trip from VA to CA for a co-op next month. I see so much potential for these things. My biggest issue is that there are too many apps I want to try, then I look at the icon and say "Now which one is this?" ;)

    speedx 3D- just love that game xD
    screen crack - fun as hell, except when they laugh and yell " HAHA i broke you phone !"
    Photofunia - im just so cute when im a jedi
    lookout - antivirus
    Jessica alba wallpapers - .... ...... ........
    color fx - i love to piss of my friends when only coloring myself

    fpse and youtube - i'm always taking a train to school about 1 hour each day for getting there and 1 hour for getting back. So to have a whole ps1 game or watching stuff on youtube really is a good way to pass the time.

    Yeah.. Great PODIUM!!
    Mine is very similar.. but i don't like Bump ..so:
    1 Shazam ultimate application to recognize any song
    2 Facebook Facebook mobile is amazing
    3 CryptMyCall a great application that is used to encrypt your calls

    I am new to the Android market, just got a HTC Inspire (at&t).
    These are the apps I've found so far. If I am being a noob and there is something that is better or you think I should try, please post.

    I am using stock music player, browser and pic viewer.

    Favorite....the one I just found

    "Executive Assistant"
    When you unlock your phone, it shows missed calls, texts, emails, facebook, and your tasks through Gtask (or other prefered app).

    Executive Assistant - Appventive

    Second Favorite,

    "anipet Aquarium"
    very cool vivid and interactive fish aquarium wallpaper. $1.99

    aniPet Aquarium Live Wallpaper - Android app on AppBrain

    "Droid Armory", World of Warcraft armory app. You can bookmark your toons to show people a list of all your toons at a glance. I have 13 85's, so it's neat to show 'em off to other WoW players.

    WoW Droid Armory for Android | AppBrain.com

    "myAT&T" shows minutes, texts, data used.

    "Financisto" keeps track of bills.

    Financisto - Personal Finance Manager for Android

    "GasBuddy" shows where the cheapest gas in your area is.

    "Bible" reads the Bible to me at night.

    "Shazam" tells you the name of that song that keeps ringing in your head and driving you crazy cause you cant remember the name of it, or who sings it.

    "Lyrics App" shows you the lyrics of the song that is playing. I finally know what Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam is saying.

    "Pandora" is an online radio station that plays the music you tell it you like.

    "Gtasks" syncs with your task list from gmail and works great with
    Executive Assistant.

    "Friendcaster" for Facebook

    "Zedge" and "Android Movies" for ringtones.

    I'd have to say my favorite app is the Kindle app for android. It's so nice to be able to take all of my books with me when I'm out of the house.

    Hi everyone,
    I have a doubt.. are these applications specific to each version of android OS? In other words, Will applications that work in gingerbread work in froyo too?
