    There are several apps on there that I would agree with, but it's hard to cut a list down to just 10 must have apps. There are several others I would have put on there instead.

    USA Today is a battery killer, btw.

    I kill all the apps with advanced task killer when i'm not using them. USA today hasn't taken up any of my battery according to my settings.

    Is it just me or do most of the apps in the market place look like a third grader made them? Ive been looking for a good calendar app and widget and they all look like hell on my droid! Ive had my Droid for just over a week and I'm still trying to find quality apps with no luck. I think the market place needs an overhaul.

    I'm starting to agree with you. It almost makes me want to take up programming...almost.

    I downloaded S2 Calendar Widget yesterday. It's free, and a lot nicer then the default google calendar widget which just shows the day and upcoming event in a big white rectangle lol.

    This one shows a whole calender, and marks the events on it. And has a couple different modes for size, one being 2 x 1. If you make it clear background and no outline it blends well with whatever desktop/background you use. I like it at least :)

    Amazon - I use this with the integrated scanner to check prices for items and more importantly, reviews on amazon
    gTasks - integrated with google tasks, but I would like a widget with a task list on the home screen
    Pure Calendar - nice widget to display on the home screen, can use with the google calendar, much better than the integrated widget

    Fav Apps So Far...

    Had my Droid for about 2 weeks now...
    Here are some I've used the most so far (all free):
    • Ringdroid
    • Astro
    • NBA Gametime Lite - best NBA widget i've seen so far
    • Flixster - must-have for movie-goers; loads pics, summaries, reviews, and showtimes pretty quickly
    • Where - might probably replace the Mycoupons apps
    • Pandora
    • Shazaam
    • WordUp - a game kinda like Boggle
    I was looking for a better calender app also. I'll prob check out pureCalendar...

    I also hear MyBackUp Pro is a must. I think it's $4.99. I plan on getting that also.

    Yeah exactly what I was thinking, I can't believe it is $10, that is insane. I don't mind supporting good devs and apps but $10 for an app that really isn't even perfected yet?

    FAIL.

    anyone have a good alternative.

    Did the free versions require upgrade to continue functioning?

    It is rumored that the dev introduced bugs into the last update of the beta, prompting people to upgrade to the "new" pay version.

    I can't confirm or deny, as I never tried it when it was in beta. I don't think it is worth $10 though. The location-based switching needs (a lot of) work and for time-based switching, there are other applications that do it for free. Timeriffic is what I use.
