    Hello, I have had my phone for a month or two and managed to download a few good apps and games

    But what I was wondering is what are some of the MUST HAVE apps and games out there for android?

    I am not looking for anything specific like organizers or whatever, just good apps to have that you find yourselfs using alot

    Thanks :greendroid:

    Lookout Mobile Security, Beautiful Widgets, Sportstap, Firefox (probably gonna get flamed for that one), Advanced Task Killer, History Eraser, Droidforums app, Astro File Manager.

    If you're rooted Droid Wall and Titanium Backup Pro are awesome.

    The two that I use the most are Jorte (free calendar app), and my Launcher Pro + widgets for Twitter & Bookmarks.

    Interesting. I just read the article about task killing. I always wondered why almost all of my memory was in use all the time.

    The apps that I used most frequently are:

    EasyMoney - to track expenses and plan budgets for managing my finances
    Handcent - to send messages because I can't pass a day without sending one
    Whatsapp - to share pictures with others
    Dolphin Browser - to surf the Net when my laptop is NA.
    AppAware Best App Market - to check out what app are android users downloading and is there any worth checking out

    My favorites and ones I use often:

    K-9 Mail
    Miren Browser (Dolphin Mini is fine if you don't care about flash)
    AlarmDroid
    Shush! Ringer Restorer
    ZDBox (has some nice widgets and a quick uninstaller)
    Pandora
    Catch Notes (for those random moments where you really need to remember something)
    DroidForums App
    Jorte
    Y5 Battery Saver (turns on wifi when near recognized networks)
    YellowPages App
    SMS Popup (I prefer this to using Handcent or GoSMS)

    Oh, and Angry Birds...:)

    Ones that I use all the time (or have used to make my phone what it is)

    LauncerPro
    Widget Locker
    Make Your Own Clock Widget
    Battery Left
    Executive Assistant
    Beautiful Widgets
    Handcent
    Google Voice
    Pure Calendar Widget
    Live Scores
    Folder Organizer
    Tasker
    Multiframe (since the Picture Frame from HTC isn't usable in LP, and there is no native Android one)

    Tasker, Handcent, LauncherPro, Widget Locker, and Pure Calendar are must-haves for me. Still trying out LiveScores, but it seems to be a massive improvement over ESPN's ScoreCenter.

    My favs other than some that have been listed already are Wunderadio,Cache cleaner,Tubemate and if you are into weather like me weathergeek Pro,Chaser TV Ultimate Radar. Also Love TIKL touch to talk me and my wife use that app a lot.Faster than calling or texting her and it don't use your minutes.

    For the touch to talk app, if your phone is on silent can people still call?

    I,m not sure. I haven't tried that.When you get a que to talk you hear a doorbell ring.It means some one is calling for you.
