Apps you can't live without...
I love this community... so, I thought I would start a thread to share some of your favorite apps you use. I am always looking for new toys to play with!
Ok, i'll start...
TAPATALK.... by far the BEST forum browsing app available. If you frequent these forums, like mnay of us do, this is soooo worth the few bucks to buy it. No more nonsense of loading the forums through you browser.... easy to use, freindly user interface... really can not say enough about how great this app is!

Good topic since there is no way I can try all the good apps out there without recommendations.
Endomondo is good for tracking the distance you ran/biked/etc and plotting it on a map via gps. You can view saved routes and times and it just works well.
ADW launcher: easy way to customize UI (it's payware but great)
edit: I now can't live without Shush thanks to rjack22 below.

There are lots of apps I couldn't do without (grin). But I'd like to mention an app called Shush. When you turn down the volumne on your phone to vibrate Shush pops up and you can set your phone for the volumne to come back on automatically in 15 increments from 15 minutes to 12 hours, or you can opt to keep it off until you manually turn it back on like normal. I was always forgetting to turn the volumne back up after putting it on vibrate. This way if I am in a meeting for two hours I can tell my phone to Shush for two hours and not worry about it.

I've been enjoying Llama this week. It can automatically turn things on and off based on different scenarios of your choosing. I think it's supposed to be like Tasker but it's free.You know, I've never met anyone like you before. Usually when I meet someone new I feel awkward and shy. But with you it's different.

I've been killing all kinds of time with the game "Plants vs Zombies". I also use Springpad alot, synced with my laptop, its a type of note taking app. Retro camera and Snapbucket are cool camera apps. Snapbucket automatically saves to your Photobucket account.

If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up.

If you are interested in a Bible app... MySword was recently released to market and is hands-down the best one available. Devs are working on ver. 2.0 now. Very similar to Pocket E-Sword if you were familiar with that application for Windows Mobile.
JuiceDefender did a great job for me on stock Froyo.. doubled my battery life. Now I just switched to UKB 2.0 ROM and it is doing quite spectacular with battery life so will wait before reinstalling Juice Defender again

Here's my top 5,
Tapatalk and xda (I'll group those together since they are basically the same thing)
All the answers to my root question are just a tap away.
Sirius- Listening to Howard helps me focus in the gym.
Stitcher Radio- I listen to Adam Corolla and Joe Rogan when Howard's on vacation.
Root explorer- Makes it really easy to try new .apk files
Camscanner- My printer at home is such a pain in the **** to scan and plug in my laptop. with camscanner I can just take a pic, it automatically crops and removes all shadows from document then turns it into a .pdf

As far as my "cant live withouts"...
Barnacle WiFi (which I use as a WiFi adhoc, not really for wifi internet, although that works too)
I use Barnacle to wifi to PPT ODP Remote Standard. I give presentations for work often and this app turns my phone into a remote with the view of the .ppt or open office presentation along with the notes and puts it on my phone with touch controls...GREAT app.
