    im still finding my way around android but with my noobie experience.. here are some of mine (mostly from my lockscreen and homescreen):

    'phandroid' :D

    'go launcher ex' *this app is awesome imo!!!
    a few things im doing with it:
    swipe up>'widgetlocker' on
    swipe down>hide/show notification bar
    app drawer dock icon>gesture>'screen off and lock'
    settings dock icon tap>'smart bar' quick settings
    settings dock icon gesture>stock settings
    i also got my heavily used apps set on the docks. facebook, ym, skype , gmail are set on gesture since most people are used to tapping the icons instead of gesturing. in a way providing some privacy to password-access apps, or so i'd like to think. :p

    'widgetlocker' using invisible slider
    'beautiful widgets' with flatwhite icons
    missed it!
    wp clock
    'screen filter' (works great for night time reading. saves battery too!)
    'smooth calendar' on homescreen and with a tap, it goes to 'jorte' for a full calendar view
