    A few of my favorite relatively unknown apps

    Lux dash - there is a free and paid version, it is basically an app to take control of your backlight. You can define how bright your screen will be depending on the lux reading of our light sensor. The paid version also allows you to have the screen dim further than stock allows. So far i have loved this app, the extra control saves me more battery and saves my eyes in darker settings.

    Screebl - this was one of the original awesome apps way back with the og droid days. Honestly i feel this is better than the app that the s3 has for keeping the screen on. Im sure the orientation sensor uses less resources than the front facing camera. oh by the way, screebl keeps the screen on it is oriented within a user defined range, and when out of range it turns off.

    Ivona text-to-speech - for those of you who dont really like the robotic voice of your android, this app is great. The voice sounds very realistic and is much more pleasant. This app has been beta since ive ben using it for about a year, and since they are beta testing they provide it for free.

    Mighty text - this app allows you to send texts using your computer through a browser. if you spend time at a computer and would rather send and receive your texts on your computer this is great. It is not a stand alone app but it talks to your phone using your gmail account.

    That's what i've got so far hope these help you guys enjoy your phones even more!

    I will definitely check out lux dash. But I like Assistant better than Ivona text-to-speech or any of the other apps. It is very smooth.

    Oh no, I think you may have misunderstood. Ivona is only a replacement for the stock text to speech engine. There isn't any interface or uses within the app, it is just a better sounding/working voice for any application that uses text to speech ie navigation or any of the assistant applications. I know the navigation voice has been reworked and sounds great but for everything else it is still robotic in ics and below.

    I really like "Notification Toggle". It can be customized to what actions you want.

    I use widgetsoid for my notification toggles, but how about screen filter?

    Screen filter
    Its great for when im using my tablet in bed and i don't wasn't to disturb my wife. For some reason my thrive won't go below 10%, so i use screen filter to darken it even further. By the way its amazing how bright ten percent actually is.

    These are all Free
    Dood's music streamer...play any song you search (not just similar songs like on pandora)
    easy unrar lite...sometimes I get themes others have created and this "unzips .rar liles...handy
    fill & sign PDF forms...very handy (I created an invoice on my computer and now I can send invoices from my phone just by filling in a few feilds)
    gyro...it's a game...not as well known as others but fun time waster
    light manager...I use it to stop the blinking while I sleep!...but you can also assign notification colors and such
    Shopping List Maker (remembers every item I enter so I just check what I need..then gives you a list of just those items..I've tried several...prefer this)
    Shush...when you turn your ringer off it displays a dial to choose how long...then it turns it back on for you!...I always forget!
    themex...snag all the icons, docks and wallpapers from ADW, GO, APEX/Nova themes...
    UCCW ultimate custom clock widget ... I make almost all of my own widgets now...this app is awesome.. date, time, weather, email, battery on and on with multiple hotspots! (it helps if you snag a bunch of skins over at XDA)

    Funny how fast you can go through apps and change your opinion about them...some of the apps I listed a few weeks back I dont use any more :) but these are some of my current favs!

    Saw in another thread about an app called Carat. It's supposed to give personal battery recommendations. Anyone have any experience with the app?
