    Well, so far Ive found that these are free.

    GameBoid
    NESoid
    SNESoid
    Genesoid
    Gearoid

    A friend of mine has them and he told me that the only difference is you cant save the games. Just search for the emulator name and Lite at the end in the Market, such as GameBoid Lite, thats the free version.

    Do a search for an app called 'Augmented Reality'. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-applications/4525-augmented-reality.html

    It's does exactly what Layar does... and it's compatible for DROID 2.0

    Might as well...

    1. Handcent - SMS customization.
    2. EStrongs File Explorer - connect via wi-fi to your home PC, manage your SD card, cut/copy/paste etc. Also has a built in task manager.
    3. Quick Settings - gives one touch access to toggle sound profiles, bluetooth, wi-fi, network, gps. Also has brightness control. Show available phone freespace, SD card freespace, and remaining battery.... all in ONE screen. One icon instead of multiple toggles on home screen.
    4. PhoneMyPC - remote desktop control, pinch zooming. Works over 3G or wi-fi.... developers are ALWAYS available!
    5. Nesnoid - Nintendo games on your phone. 'Nuff said. LOL

    Hi Aim - Reliable, speedy, and easy to use AIM program, I also like the notifications but I doubt that's anything special.

    Pandora - Great app, and even better on Android since I can use it in the background, music lovers have to get this.

    Droid Live - Listening to my favorite radio stations in Boston anywhere I go is awesome, just wish it was a bit nicer looking but whatever.

    Scoreboard - Great app, I know if you are like me and follow a lot of different sports teams just getting the schedules right and times right can be real pain but this automatically notifies me when a game started, when a goal is scored, or whatever.

    ShopSavvy - It's already come in use for Christmas shopping and I'm guessing it will continue, at the least to just give me easy piece of mind over the price of an item.

    Other notables

    Uno - Great fun, cheap, and perfect kill 10 minute game
    MotoTorch LED - Really useful at night when I'm on my way home or just want to quickly check something while I'm in my bed.

    I cannot find it on my phone. Crazy thing is I had it before I did hard reset earlier today, to fix some issues. Where "should" it be located?

    Thanks!

    If you long press on the home screen, the menu pops up. Select widgets, and it's in there

    5 Favorite Apps

    1. Adv Task Manager - able to shut down backround programs easily and delete

    apps not wanted. (Dragging them to the "trash" does not delete app just

    icon.) Better than TasKiller and Adv Task Killer.

    2. Weather channel - simple way to get local weather (also use Radar Now occ)

    3. BatteryLife - easy way to keep track of phone life.

    4. SportsTap - Easy way to check scores etc.

    5. LastFM - listen to music and seems to be less drain on battery life than

    some other more popular music channels.

    By the way 5a. should be AppManager, so you can save all your information

    in case you have to fix something with a "Factory data reset".

    apporganizer is a must have.

    After installing you run the program. Tag apps with "categories."
    Make your own or use the categories provided.

    On the homescreen: longtouch->shortcuts->apporganizer
    then select a "category." An icon is added to your desktop.

    The Icon acts like a little menu off all apps in the category that was selected.

    No votes for dildroid?!:laugh:

    My Top 5:
    1. Some sort of Twitter app (Twidroid right now, but trying Seesmic this afternoon).
    2. Superpages or Where (probably SP because of the Augmented reality feature)
    3. A barcode scanner
    4. Handcent SMS
    5. The Peter Griffin Soundboard (Couldn't think of a fifth without my droid)

    1. Handcent SMS. I dont know how I lived for 15 minutes on this phone without it.
    2. App Organizer. Best App management program ever.
    3. Docs To go Pro.
    4. Pandora
    5. Shazam. Because I suck at remembering artists on the radio.
