What are THE must have apps and why?
What apps would you tell a newbie that he/she must absolutely download?
I would heavily suggest Task Killer. I free's up used space and it can possible help out your battery life.

I used Advanced Task Killer for awhile (the first 4 weeks) then removed it last week.
I have noticed no issues regarding battery life. Funny how the consensus on if it's necessary goes back and forth, but for now I am living without it with no problems.
As for must have apps, Shazam (or Soundhound), MP3 Downloader, Slacker Radio, Camera 360, Flixster, Layar, DirecTV app (YMMV), Weatherbug Elite, Dolphin HD or Skyfire browser, Setting Profiles. I would include Fring...but now without Skype it's useless.
And some other keyboard (like Swype or SlideIT...haven't personally tried out Swype...still waiting for the non-beta release)

If you know what you're doing, you can use a task killer effectively.

LED Desire Light because it uses the LED flash as a flashlight.

please take all task killer discussion to that thread. This thread isnt for that.
gameboid is a musthave.

I'm here because like you, I have questions that I need answered, and help those like me, with questions of their own.

I got Gameboid! Flipping fun if you used to play back in the day and the controls you get used to quickly.
-Analog Clock Collection (has clocks that are good for different backgrounds ... good if you're sick of HTC widgets/beautiful widgets)
-AudioManager (great to put a widget on the homescreen to control all sounds)
-Ringdroid (make ringtones on the go)
-Astro File Manager
Some showoff apps:
-Google Sky map
There are others, but they aren't necessarily must haves.

Would love to hear recommendations on a good MEMO/TO-DO product, although I'm still reading through all the threads and will likely run into some good rec's. Would also love to hear if any of you are storing secure data like passwords, and if so, which app you're using. I had SplashID on my PRE and am tempted to continue using it, though the reviews in the app market seem a bit low at first blush.
