I'm gonna cheat with an extra one...
Top 7 for me...
Where (locate app)
Handcent SMS (best around for texting)
Dolphin Browser (works great... pinch to zoom)
Any Cut (make anything a shortcut on the home screen. i use it for speed dialing & speed texting)
PdaNet (tethering... works awesome!!!)
Qik (almost instant streaming video from you phone)
Itookthisonmyphone (uploads pics for my lazy ass)
Screebl Lite (almost mandatory to have)
Top 5 for the kids...
Splat: Bugs II (squash bugs)
Toddler Lock (awesome for the 2 yo)
Poke A Mole (mole whacking)
Finger Paint (like ms paint for kids)
Stick Boy Piano (little piano they can play)
In no particular order...
2.) SMS Popup
3.) Advanced Task Manager
great lists. im gonna keep this thread in mind when i get my droid
three weeks later, im going to update this list
weatherbug is out.
beautiful widgets is in. i purchased this after hearing all the good reviews about it and have not looked back. the integration is simply beautiful. and the weather is decent. for more detailed weather lookup, i just use the weather channel app.
sportstap is still a must. i used it heavily.
aldiko is still on there. i use it whenever i have time to waste. (im not a big game player)
gdocs is still on there, but it isnt a must. so for this list, id replace it with:
google voice. if youve been lucky enough to receive an invite, its awesome. i hate listening to vmails, so this saves a lot of "please press 7" bs.
panda is out.
home++ is in. smoother, less buggy, more professional looking. it lacks the sidedocks of panda, which i loved, but the powerstrip at the bottom is a major boost. if youve got the time, try both of these home replacements out.
2) Barcode Scanner (for use with QR codes)
3) Pandora/Slacker/Droidlive (I'm cheating, but I use all three constantly and they're similar)
4) Dolphin browser
5) Apps Organizer (of course, you wouldn't need it with only five apps =p)
Surprised no one has mentioned WorldTour. I absolutely love it--it updates your background periodically with a screencap from one of a bunch of different webcams.
I enjoy watching the sun's shadow cross through the Americas
- World Tour
EDIT: I also had to add in RemoteDroid. Absolutely great for my HTPC when wireless keyboards and mice just wouldn't cut it.
Here are a few I really like:
Dizzler is a cool music app. You type in the song you want to hear and it plays it for you.
Tricorder is a visually interesting app that reminds one of the star trek tricorder. Measures things like solar spots, magnetization, sound, gravity, etc.
Where's my droid - helps you find your droid when its lost. You text a code word and it turns the sound up high and rings - even if you had sound off.
Shazam - mentioned before. I was in a restaurant the other night. My wife asked me what song was on. I whip out Shazam, it listens, and I have the answer, and a YouTube concert video of that song going in under a minute. AMAZING!!
I can't limit it to 5, so here's 15+

15.[FONT="] [/FONT]Time Clock (I'm self employed and work with many people. This helps me 'punch the clock' with each place I go. I can also set it up to track my wokers time-in/time-out)
16. Antivirus free (checks for security issues)
17. Absolute Fitness (keep track of daily calories & exercise)
18.Grocery King (Bar Code Scanner for making grocery shopping easy. Has Voice look-up also)
19. Bloo (Facebook App)
Here's what I'd like to find:
Something to lock the volume button for me. I am ALWAYS messing up my volume when I take my Droid out of the holster. I've missed several calls because of this. I'd like to see it lock it self when your screen blanks.
Something that will tell me how much longer until my battery dies (time remaining) and when plugged in, how long until Full Charge. I want the iphone app called 'Turbo Charger' available for my Droid
