    First android experience so I dunno about any widget apps but...

    Shazam
    Photoshop express (unless theres a better free simple editing app)
    Google-
    -Goggles
    -Voice
    -SkyMap
    Chase
    Tweetdeck
    Foursquare
    Flixster
    Netflix
    Weather channel
    U-Verse app (comes pre-loaded I believe?)
    Tango
    Euchre/blackjack (any good card game apps with multiple games?)
    Angry Birds of course

    Thats all I can think of off the top of my head. I was going to download an iTunes remote, but figure Ill just keep an iPhone by the entertainment center instead of spending money on an inferior app.

    I have wondered this since I saw my first Droid commercial...what is that app that looks like it uses Google's street view and you can look around and it will show you what is around you apparently using the compass?

    This is my first Android as well, I will definitely be keeping tabs on this thread.

    There is the playon app, which I plan on getting. It has netflix, hulu, plus a bunch of other networks. The current version uses the browser and let's you watch their vids online through the browser, but they are working on one that is a standalone app, and doesn't use the browser.

    Playon looks nice, but pricey as well. I have a Slingbox Solo, would be cheaper to buy their app and then have access to all content on my U-Verse and I could just wait for the Netflix app to come. Realizing that may never actually happen though.

    I saw a thread (perhaps in the android lounge forum) asking about the cons of fragmentation...well, no netflix is one of them. I've only played a movie from it on my iPhone to show people that I can though...pretty much just use it to update my queue...so not a huge deal.

    It's not expensive at all, it's only about $40/year, not month. Its actually cheaper than netflix, and netflix is part of the package. Or a one time fee of $80.

    FWIW, the DishNetwork Remote Access app (free) allows you to not only access Dish connected Sling adapter ("view" content, not just "manage"), but also existing stand alone Sling boxes. I'm not sure if you need to have Dish in order to get access to the sling box, but it "could have" saved me $30 for the Android Sling app. :rolleyes:

    Conversely, the $30 app from Sling, is not able to connect to the Dish adapter.
