    What are your must have programs. My top 3 are:

    + GrooveIP - for free phone calls within the US and from Europe to the US

    + Maps - as navigation system and for planning trips

    + Watch TV - to watch the old TV shows and the Cartoons

    Would be interesting to see which three ones you rate tops.

    Evernote, Dropbox, Drive, Quick Office, Tapatalk HD, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Bus Tracker (UK), The Trainline (UK), British Airways, Air France, Priority Pass (finding airport lounges I can access), Kindle, Spotify, The Daily Mash, IMDB, Facebook are the ones I would download first to any Android device.

    Additionally, there's the important bundled Apps (Maps, Currents, Earth and so on).

    Facebook, Tweetlanes, most of the Google Apps (Voice, Calendar & Maps topping the list), Evernote, banking apps, airline apps, Kindle, Google Books. And for browsing, I keep switching back and forth between Dolphin and Chrome. Love them both.

    And wouldn't dream of switching off at night without checking out Phandroid, of course.

    Please post only the 3 top favorites and what you do with them. I know we all have a whole bunch of programs depending on our interests, but a full list was not the intent of the thread.

    This is really interesting. There is a great variety of programs that are being quoted. I would have thought that people use more or less a similar set of programs. But that does not seem to be the case.

    Keep the info coming. When there are enough samples, maybe I make a statistic.

    Explore what comes with it it too. Map caching and traffic view make long driving a little less stressful.
