    I've had my Bionic since September. I'm unrooted on .905 so no Roms. No case or screen cover, but I use a holster for the phone. I also have the Motorola Extended Battery.

    Many of the apps I have are holdovers from my OG Droid. Too many to post but I suggest you look at http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/217073-app-help.html and http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-if-you-could-only-have-recommend-5-apps.html

    One app worth mentioning is GSam Battery Monitor (recommended by FoxKat) which sits on the Notifications Bar. When you pull the bar down you see the battery temperature and time left. Pressing that will have a lot more information. It also gives you the battery percentage in single digits.

    Another is System Panel. It gives you a lot of information about your phone.

    You may also want to consider going over to Amazon.com and downloading their App Store, well app (be sure to allow downloading from outside sources first). Every day they give away a paid app for free. Many will be those you'd never touch even if free, but there are gems. For example, they had QuickOffice Pro, a $14.95 app, for free.

    As for widgets the only ones I'll mention is Beautiful Widgets, Switchpro and ColorNote. Switchpro is like your power strip, but you can add things to control (up to 7) and have a choice of 21 things. ColorNote is like a Post-It on your screen.

    I'm running pretty much stock so no launchers.

    Re Apps:

    Rooted / ICS / v232

    Apex Launcher- stock is great but Apex adds some nice capabilities, help correct a problem some users had using a Lapock with ICS

    Pulse- News Reader

    FlipBoard- news-sort of

    Player Pr-o favorite music app

    Audible- - really hooked on audio books for entertainment on long drives, mowing lawn and other boring tasks

    Evernote- 'info scrap-book' and note taking

    Pocket- save emails, websites anything from apps that have a 'share' function. Sorta like One Note's 'send to Note' function

    K9- nice email app. I use it for POP email accounts alongside Gmail

    Probably the most useful app I use: WidgetLocker

    First screenshot is how my lockscreen looks and second shows the unlock options I have set for the two unlocker orbs.
    It's so quick to get to my most used apps using it. Another of my often used apps is the bottom option on my left side unlocker, which is OurGroceries, a shared grocery list. My wife and I use it so we can add stuff to it and know that whoever goes to the store next will just get everything on the list!
