    Other than native apps (Maps, etc)

    Voice Dialer HF (finally "HF" Voice dialing and Voice controlled apps)
    Button Shortcut (map any app to camera button, currently using above app)
    TriCorder... too fun, yet has real info, compass etc.
    MotoTorch(LED flashlight) - used it tons of times, even used to re-aim Satellite Dish at night
    ShopSavvy - VERY handy


    Top 5 is not enough, change to top 10 would be more realistic or easier to chose.

    928-I searched for "handsfree ht" in the market, but did not find anything. Did I misunderstand the source?

    Thanks

    Hmmm, I've listed all the apps posted that I don't already have for a total of 68. Now I have some investigating to do and lots of downloading.

    Thanks for all the info.

    I love my Droid.....

    I got a question for Handcent users, how do you turn off the built in text messaging?

    Go into Messaging app -> uncheck "Auto-retrieve" -> uncheck "Notifications"

    Now messaging won't automatically get your messages or display them, basically ensuring that if you close the app via a task killer, it won't run unless you manually re-open it.
