Thanks, New2U! What a great thread! Since I have a sucky Voyageur, I have had no need for apps, but am fascinated by them. This will make it so much easier to choose from ones that people already like/love/can't be without! Kudos to you!

Is there anything out there yet that will turn the camera flash on? Screen flashlights are so stupid, but if you can enable the camera flash for a flashlight... shaaaaazam! I'm in! Haha!

on my blackberry, you just turn on the camcorder and have the setting s changed to "flash always on" or something like that.

Ok, I had been making a list of programs I wanted to get or check out as well as home replacements to play around with. This is a copy/paste of my list, I'll try to change as many as I can to Androlib links if that is what is best.

Utilities / Tools / General Purpose Apps:
============
Where - Might not need this with the universal Google search. We'll see. Needed it on BB.
Astrid - Looks like a good To-Do List app.
Compare Everywhere or ShopSavvy - Barcode Readers
Locale - Changes your profile based on your gps location, could be useful.
Mobile Defense - Lost phone tracking.
WeatherBug - Might not need this with Beautiful Widgets below.
Taskiller or Advance Task Manager - To check/kill running apps.
Astro or Estrongs File Manager - File manager, app installer, file hider.
Password Vault - To replace the password keeper on my Storm.
Aldiko - For reading ebooks.
AppManager - Install apps from SD, backup apps to SD, etc.
Layar - Augmented Reality oooooo


Fun / Entertainment:
==============
Google Sky Map - Just looks like it would be fun to have.
Speaking Pad - Type stuff out and have the app speak it.
InsultDroid - A "soundboard" of insults that you can set to go off on a timer lol.
Snap Photo Pro or Camera ZOOM FX - Lots of image manipulation stuff. Add text, effects, etc.
Photostitch - Lets you stitch together multiple photos to make a panoramic image.
TFLN - TextsFromLastNight reader.


Widgets:
==================
FML Widget - Quick, funny updates from FMyLife.com (There are several APPs for this as well, I just like the widget idea)
Beautiful Widgets - Adds a few widgets including a very HTC-like clock/date/weather widget. I think it includes toggles too.


Music:
================
Streamfurious - Can play internet radio streams.
Pandora - Internet Radio
Ringdroid - Ringtone creater.
I Music - Internet Radio


Android Replacements:
===================
SMS Popup or Handcent SMS or ChompSMS - Only if I find stock Android lacking.
AnySoftKeyboard or Better Keyboard - If I find the stock Android on-screen KB lacking.


Games:
============
Bonsai Blast - A very Zuma-like game, could be a good time-killer.
Solitaire - Gotta have my solitaire.
Puzzle Blox - Looks like a fun game. Similar to Collapse but uses the accelerometer. (search it on youtube)
Tower Defense Games (I'm a sucker for them)
- Retro Defense
- Robo Defense
- Plox
- City Defense
- Bubble Defense
- Crystallight Defense

Home Replacements:
=================
OpenHome
SweeterHome
GDE
dxTop
aHome
Freshface

(I know it's a huge list, sorry!)

Just to let you know guys I have created a sticky under the main applications thread with the application listings, please enjoy a more centralized location.
