    What are some must have apps that you can't live without on your mytouchslide?

    I love doubletwist. Its the itunes alternative.

    Also, if anyone can find out how to root this phone, I will be able to install mobile defense. :)

    This is my first fancy phone, I'm amazed by some of the things available.

    - Transdroid: Control my torrents from anywhere? Yes please!
    - Pandora
    - Silent Toggle Widget
    - LauncherPro

    Those are the ones getting the most use right now.

    I just saw someone recommend TiKL, its a Push-to-talk app. Free voice chatting with friends. Anyone have it? Don't have any friends that use it, but would like to try it.

    Pandora indeed and Advanced Task Killer.
    I'm using Handcent also.

    My recommendations:
    Chuck Norris Facts
    Dolphin Browser HD
    Where's My Droid
    Flikie Wallpaper (acts goofy sometimes, but works more so than not and has a ton of HD wallpapers.

    only dumb question is the one that is not asked...

    Yes the other person has to have the app also.... if you have any family or friends that have an android phone tell them to install it... It is a great app and fun...

    Dolphin HD for sure. Multi-touch browsing :D
    Pandora
    Facebook
    eBuddy
    FxCamera is pretty cool
    Laputa Book Reader (recently disappeared from market, but I installed it before so I guess I lucked out. Search, you might find it. Free books, I'm reading Fight Club at the moment.)
    Metal Detector is nice to show off Android to iPhone users.
    ttTumblr
    Twitter
    Zedge (free ringtones and wallpapers.)

    EDIT: As of 6/18, Laputa is available again.

    Doesn't the Internet app that comes with MT3GS come with multi-touch? What can dophin do that the browser the phone has cannot do?

    Or am I not understanding multi-touch?

    Dolphin HD is horrid. That tab bar takes up too much damn space.

    If you have verizon you should get their apps. The DVR Remote and DVR Manager are great. Their site says they only support several devices for the remote function, but it works just fine on my mytouch. I told the TV that I had a Nexus 1 and it accepted that.

    I agree that the FiOS apps are great, but the remote app is WAY to big. I have removed it and will wait until 2.2 to save it to my SD Card.

    Last.fm - Since it lets you skip past more than 6 songs unlike other radios. It also has a lowfi and hifi mode depending on your network, and the app is light and quick.

    FlashApp -
    Lets you use the flash as a flashlight.

    Tasks -
    can be found in the "get more widgets" section of your widgets.

    Dolphin Browser HD -
    Although it still can't save photos it's still the most fully functional of all the browsers. It seems to handle more website content than the stock browser. Although, I prefer the stock browser when accessing sites like Youtube and Picassa on a 3G connection.

    Dolphin HD is a bit cumbersome, but once you set it up correctly it's a decent alternative. Just hide the stupid gesture button, check full screen, the set your homepage to google.

    Opera Mini -
    It can save photos and is a decent alternative.

    To be honest many times I end up going back to stock browser until I come across websites that don't work, then I go to Dolphin.

    In the end all three browsers are lacking, but we get FireFox soon.

    Where -
    Since it finds movies, gas, restaurants, and everything else with voice search all in one app. No need for apps like Flixter.

    AndroZip -
    Archive and Extract many different types and it functions as a File Explorer with many functions like Copy, Move, Open, Delete, etc. No need for a separate archiver and explorer.

    Tikl -
    I haven't used it much but it's a fantastic app.

    eBuddy -
    Seems OK as a multi-chat client, but I really haven't tried many others to know how this one holds against them. It may suck compared to others I really don't know yet.

    Zedge -
    And there are other apps that serve a similar function, but I just ended up recommending this to my girl since it has ring-tones and also has screen-savers.

    Easy Tether
    It's just like PDANet, but only $10.00 for the full version. I'll just wait on Froyo myself.Most other stuff is already on the phone, twitter, face book, etc, (I use the full page alternate Friend Stream) although face book has a known sync issue I'm sure it will be fixed soon. I also like the Date Clock Widget on the phone that not only shows a neat animation depending on the weather but allows quick access to your clock, timer, alarms, and forecast.
