    How about Samba?

    Puts your phone on your home network like any other computer. Creates a password protected share of your SDcard so you can transfer files wirelessly. You create a netbios name for the phone and it appears in the network manager in windows with that name just like any other computer.

    Edit: Would love to see some more. I can browse all day long but the best ones always seem to be suggested by others. :)

    Teamviewer, lets you control your computer at your house while you're on the road. And it's free! Teamviewer.com

    Now THAT'S slick. I use Teamviewer on a few machines already, didn't know they had an Android app. I can see this coming in real handy. Thanks!

    Wifi Explorer Pro pretty much does the same thing. It creates an internet address for your phone so you can access the SD card via computer, no wires.

    I like it, thanks.

    The best ones are always the ones people suggest... :)

    Maybe I just suck at searching for apps. LOL

    Bump. You can share pictures and contacts with iphone and android users, and apps with android users just by bumping phones.

    Hide It Pro is a volume widget when tapped and changes to a password protected file storer when the icon is held.
    My favorite "that's just cool " app is Sign. Tap the icon and draw a user set gesture on your home screen and it does what you defined it to do (dial the number or start a text to the contact ). Unlike others, your home screen never changes until the action starts after drawing the gesture and it's MUCH more accurate than the others.
