    One of my favorite things on my phone is the widgets -- the apps that run on the home screen.

    Here are the ones I usually run on my home screen, though I swap in and out a lot:

    Beautiful Widgets (Clock & Weather, also comes with some nice power toggles)

    Financisto (Quickly view my checkbook balance)

    Handcent SMS (see how many texts I have if I haven't checked in a while... such as at work)

    Battery Left (an estimate of how much is left on your battery, in percentage (by single digits) and time)

    Music apps:
    bTunes
    last.fm
    Pandora
    Tune Wiki

    Facebook (check on some friends' status updates with a quick glance)

    Sportstap (scoreboard app, imperfect but apparently the best we've got right now)

    CalWidget (LOVE this app. Have different calenders -- one for general dates, one with the schedule of games I'm working for MLB, and another with the Yankees schedule)

    SlideShow (cycles through pictures in a folder)

    What widgets do you have and love? I'm always looking for stuff I'll like but haven't heard of yet.

    app manager is good too for customized folders.

    Instead of Slideshow try Photo Frame Deluxe or Photo Gallery, both do slide shows with tons of options on frames, sizes and rate of picture cycle.

    Also use Countdown Widget to countdown to vacations and such.

    Pure Calendar and Pure Grid Calendar are also must haves.
