    The Android Market ended the year with over 200,000 apps in stock, which means finding that perfect app is a little harder. No worries... Gizmocrunch has made a new list that gives you the top five must have applications from the Market. The list, unlike most, isn’t completely covered with task switchers like advance task killer, rather it’s got useful applications that even I have installed.

    Here is the list:
    Do you agree with the list or do you have your own? Please share it with us in your reply.

    Recovery in Lookout is pretty nice. Anti-virus can be turned off.

    DroidForums junkie!!

    why wouldnt you use swype?

    as for lookout, I thought antivirus was detrimental to the OS or something like that. or maybe it is unnecessary and just uses the limited amount of memory we have...

    I love Swype. Lookout slowed my phone too much.

    I don't think Swype should be on the list really. Yes, it's a great application, a personal favorite, but the description talks about hard to find apps in the market yet the post refers to apps in general. Not too hard to find though:) Just saying haha

    Apps I've tried that I use all the time:

    * Handcent: If you text, it is the sweetness. I love this app.
    * Handycalc: If you math hard, or if you math soft... This (free) app will more than handle it.
    * Google Voice: I use it for my voicemail handler, and it kicks VZW's Visual Voicemail's ass. The transcriptions aren't of much use, but can be quite hilarious to read.
    * For music... WinAmp is good, but Power Amp is better.
    * Do I really have to mention Angry Birds?!
    * Another vote for Swype. I've gotten quite fast at it, though it takes some practice.

    I know there are other threads like this one around, but I just couldn't help chiming in. My DX is far from perfect (been having a hell of a time with Froyo on this device, even after a clean re-install), but It's been a great year for Android apps!

    i love swype, i use lookout (don't know if it slowed my phone at all), and i use SMSpop, ive tried handcent and hated it, and chompsms and didn't like that either however i like the easy use of SMSpop. i also use Babyesp to keep track of my babies schedule for feedings and naps throughout the day. beats having to write it down or if you forget the last feeding and you have been busy its a great help.
