    2. i music - search and download music
    3. Mototorch LED - turns your Droid flash into LED flashlight (a must for all droid users)
    4. Pandora - online radio
    5. cal widget - turns your reg calendar into customizable widgets

    i don't get the people that are obsessed wtih these task killers. lol. what a waste, especially if you only have 5 apps. what's the point??

    1. Docs to Go.
    2. Pandora
    3. Nesoid
    4. Barcode Scanner/Shop Savvy
    5. SportsTap

    in that order - pretty much everything else i need is handled in the browser.

    It's a program called Astrid, it's a free task manager in the Marketplace. Also they are trying a way to display it with the pure calendar widget but I haven't tried that myself yet.

    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

    Handcent
    Home++

    Honorable mentions to:

    Astrid
    Dolphin
    Pandora
    Astro File Manager
