    So its Christmas day and undoubtedly there are a plethora of people getting new 'Droids for Christmas. What are some apps that you feel are must haves for Android? I've gotten questions from people with both tablets and phones; essentially they want to know, "What should I download?"

    Angry Birds - Game
    Bedside - Dock App
    Beautiful Widgets
    Crush the Castle - Game
    Documents to Go - View & edit Microsoft documents
    Dolphin Browser
    Folder Organizer - Change Icons & Folders on screens
    Fox News
    Home Switcher
    Hungry Shark - Game
    Movies - Theaters, movie times, etc.
    MyBookmarks - transfer your bookmarks to phone
    Navigon - expensive, but best, navigation app
    Noodles - lists, (To Do, etc.)
    NPR News - Listen to your favorite NPR programs whenever you want to.
    PhoneMyPC - control your pc from your phone
    PowerAmp - Music

    There are so many similar threads that I don't usually respond but because it's Christmas I'll give you the one must have app that they didn't include: Screebl. Just get it, there's a video that will describe what it is and how to use it.

    keepscreen will do the same as screebl.

    i would recommend Quick Settings. It's nice consolidation of options into one app. Check it out.
