    These are the latest apps I have been playing with and have been rather satisfied with this. Check em out....they are all either free or (in one case) have a lite version to try first.

    First off.....Application folder....ever wanted the smart folder feature from SPB 3D Shell without having pay the $15? Well here you go...but this is better it actually shows you how many apps you have in the folder.

    Next up is Rescue Time. This app will show you where you are spending most your time on your device. Just for those who are curious where your life is going....;)....helps if you are trying to reduce your distraction time on your device

    Next.....Killswitch. Now I am digging this app. Want to extend battery life? Well this app detects when your phone is put in a case and puts it to sleep. It also has a function that you can enable that will put your device to sleep when you put it face down. NICE! The lite version (this is the app that is paid but has a lite version to try out) doesn't allow you to modify the wait time like the paid version does so you are subject to a 10 second delay. But test it....it works for me on my Rooted D2 running Leaked GB, bought it and now I went from liking it to loving it.

    Next is not going to be for everyone, but for those like me who live in Portand, OR....or anywhere else that Zipcar is.....is the Zipcar app. Renting and locating a Zipcar has never been easier. I don't use this but my neighbors have recently made me their best friends due to this app.

    Lastly....it's a game....great for wasting time....if you have ever played Fantastic Contraption (physics based flash game) you are going to like this....it's called Clever Contraptions

    That's it.....that's all I got right now hope you enjoy these.

    +1 on rescuetime. I have that on my desktop, I had no idea there was an app for it on android. I got it set up and everything.

    Killswitch is primarily for tablets.
    But why does it need those permissions?
    All it needs is hardware access for the light sensor and accelerometer?
