    I posted this in the Introduction forum and was suggested to create a thread in this forum because there wasn't one. so here goes.

    other apps i hope to add:

    a keyboard of some sort (Swype, T9, ect. ect.)
    music player (iSync, Google Music Beta, PowerAMP, Audio Galaxy)


    any suggestions; Games, System Apps, Widget Apps, ect. ect.

    I personally now like Flex T9 more than Swype, it was even free from Amazon!

    i read through the keyboard discussion in the apps sub-forum and it seems like the opinions are all over the place for those apps.

    Lookout has been a nice app. It gives you a number of different options if you lose your phone including location or wiping.

    Swype is a great keyboard. Hands down.

    Tweetdeck if you do anything with twitter and facebook

    Amazon appstore you will have to download and install through your SD card because it can't be found in the market but Amazon gives a free paid app every day. Have gotten some decent apps through that.

    Beyondpod for anything with podcast or blogs

    Pulse has a good setup for multiple news sources in one place

    Movies for just that

    Docs if you do anything with google documents

    Dropbox is a very easy to use cloud manager

    TuneIn gives you lots of radio channels including local

    Pandora is well liked by people

    WallSwitch
    Its a wallpaper utility that cycles through your entire folder of wallpapers/pictures. Its almost like a live wallpaper if you set it to change your static wallpapers every minute. First Android application I ever downloaded and still one of the best.

    I take it that AudioGalaxy is very much a necessity.

    We have an app just for our forums - please check it out -

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.blau.android.phandroidnews

    Tapatalk is great - don't get me wrong - but we wanted an app based on user input for just our site.

    On the idea of locking out your phone from the bad guys if lost/stolen -

    Lookout is great, I personally use EStrongs Security Manager -

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.estrongs.android.safer

    Please check out both, choose what's right for you.

    ~~~~~~~

    Finally - and I can't stress this enough for people with many or complex contacts -

    Google Gesture Search

    No way I'll ever own another Android phone without it! :)

    Tasker :)

    I also love Pulse, and Springpad for news and notes.

    Wapedia is an awesome wikipedia app, better than the official one.

    And depending on if I like Sense or not, I'll probably get ADW EX or just flash it to CM7/MIUI.

    Oh, and JuiceDefender.

    If you like music yes. I think it's must have on any android phone.

    Just check their fb page. People love this app.

    I'd be interested in this app if I didn't keep my machine off at home to conserve power. So Google Music it is. Such a shame, because the GMusic player is horrifically bare-boned.

    Oh another thing every Android user should have:

    Google Authenticator

    Considering that your Google account is everything to your phone (contacts, calendar, personal info), it really makes sense to activate the 2-click verification. It's really easy to set up. It takes 5-10 mins. Just log into your Gmail, go to Account Settings and it's right there in the security options.

    You should look into subsonic. Requires $10 'donation' after 30 days though. This app allows you to queue songs up that are d/led to your sd card. Or you could leave the laptop on at times for streaming.

    Audiogalaxy also allows you to stream from other ppls' servers if they make their server public.

    Hmm...AudioGalaxy lets you stream from other's public servers? That right there is enough reason for me to give it a shot, just to try to find some new artists/albums I may like. Although, I question if that's legal to do. It seems like it would fall under a broadcasting law and have a license requirement/loyalty payment.
