    Just got my Nexus 7 yesterday and it really did surpass my expectations. Basically replaced my laptop and my iphone for everything but making calls. Love how i can manage my website all from my tablet. But my Nexus is pretty empty, what are some of your must have apps?

    FBReader I like better than the other book reader apps I have tried.

    RealCalc is a great calculator and an example of something that is absolutely the perfect size for the N7 screen.

    KeePassDroid for saving password collection in a form I can share with my linux boxes.

    File Expert for accessing sdcard and sending files back and forth over wi-fi.

    250+ Solitaire Collection for wasting time (though I tend to only play freecell despite the other 249 :).

    After rooting:

    Titanium Backup for backup to sdcard

    rsync backup for backup of sdcard to desktop

    StickMount for mounting external sdcard

    MX Player for playing movies from external sdcard.

    Essential apps:
    IMDB
    Swiftkey 3 Tablet
    Mantano Reader
    StickMount
    MX Player
    Google Voice
    Google Talk
    Plume (Twitter client)
    Kindle Reader
    Opera Mobile
    PowerAmp

    Really that's 90% of what I run on the N7. Of course I have a boat load of other apps, but I never seem to use them. For example, I have Netflix installed but I'm not sure I've even logged in to it.

    Are you using Swiftkey 3 or Tablet? I have 3 on my S3, was wondering if there was any difference.

    So far i've been giving Google's new keyboard a chance which works pretty well.

    Rooted N7 and rooted HTC Resound working together. Resound is on GB with custom ROM. Use wifi tether on Resound to connect N7 to for 4G full time access when out of wifi area.

    Use TabletTalk via blue tooth to Rezound for sms.

    Touchdown for corp email, office talk for OCS to my work Communicator web chat.

    MXplayer for video, n7player four stored music, tunein radio for my local stations. And various games and 6 browsers including Chrome.

    Since this has turned into a real apps thread here I go:

    Games:
    New Star Soccer
    Reckless Racing 2
    Cut The Rope (again...)
    Rebuild

    Others:
    MX Movie Player Pro
    Tune In Radio
    Sky+
    EBay / PayPal
    Footmob Football Scores

    Widgets:
    APW /(Bookmarks and Calendar)
    One More Clock

    Not much in regular use to be honest, most time spent on the web or with addiction to NSS when I have 5 minutes.
