    Coming with HTC there are a few luxuries I won't be able to do without
    Fancy widget - more for function than form
    GoSMS or Handcent - only if I don't like the new SMS
    Weatherbug pro

    that's really the only customization ones i'll need, otherwise just my favorite apps:
    Pulse
    groupme
    netflix
    Twicca <--- amazing twitter app (if you only have one account)
    google apps (translate, goggles, chrome to phone, etc.)
    foursquare
    IMDB
    Wolfram Alpha
    ReadItLater
    Skype
    Winamp
    fruit ninja
    pocket god

    edit:
    Adfree is really selfish in my opinion. similar things in browsers are destroying the internet. so much of the "free" services you take for granted are paid for by advertisers. I used to use an ad blocker untill I became a youtube partner, and now i appreciate what ads do for us as consumers. Same goes for apps, some ads are bull and totally intrusive (especially in some games) but for the most part they are really there to suport the dev that's providing you the apps you love. don't like ads? stop being a cheap-*** and pay the dollar for the full version. end of rant.

    My must haves:

    1. Tasker: Automate everything on your phone. Seriously. Pretty high learning curve, but the website has a lot of pre-made scripts you can load in. This app is the balls.

    2. Google Apps: My must-have google apps: Google Docs, Google Goggles, Gmail, Google Sky Map, Google Maps, Google+, Youtube

    3. Touchdown by Nitrodesk: For exchange e-mail. I love having tasks integrated.

    4. Adobe Flash Player: Pretty self-explanatory

    5. Dice Bag: Best dice rolling app I've found. Use it for my weekly D&D game

    6. Fantasy Football Monster '11: It's worth the money. Way better than the yahoo-developed fantasy football app.

    7. Barcode Scanner: For barcodes and QR codes

    8: Keyring: Keep all your key chain rewards cards on your phone and backed up online.

    9. Last.fm: My personal favorite music streamer. I love the concept of Pandora, but Last.fm just has a wider selection.

    10. Linkedin/Facebook/Twitter: Only installed for syncing purposes

    11. Tweetdeck: Best twitter/facebook combo app. Hopefully they add G+ support soon.

    12. Netflix: Self-explanatory

    13. Note Everything Pro: Best note taking app

    14. Slingplayer: If you have a Slingbox, you know how awesome this is.

    15. Swype: Still the best keyboard, in my opinion, and I've used them all.

    16. Tapatalk: Great for browsing forums, which you probably do if you're reading this

    17. Trillian: By far the best instant messaging app. I have tried all of these as well.

    18. ScoreMobile: By far the best sports ticker.

    There are some other apps that I currently use, but I'm hoping I will be able to do away with once we get ICS because of the base UI improvements. These include LauncherPro Plus, Pure Calendar Widget, and a few others.

    If I got a nexus (IMO, the only worthy android device) medscape, sound hound, Some yoga and fitness apps that are in apples market if they are on androids market too. Medscape is premium free though and any professional in the field can find good info in a pinch. By no means is it a substitute for real references, but the interaction checker is decent. Is the nexus here?

    Nothing closed source will come preinstalled unless Google makes it.

    Can I purchase Swype from the Android market? I've seen a lot of keyboards but I am not sure they are actually the real Swype.

    So far I like SwiftkeyX so I will probably stick with it.

    If it's not part of the phone you'll have to sign up for the Swype Beta.

    As a new guy coming from Apple IPhone and Windows on my PC

    Any concern about compatibility with these older apps on a new operating system?

    I know windows would have closed and apple would have rotted to the core. What about Android, eat it up or spit it out?

    Question....

    My DroidX had Swipe bult into the phone, however, I'm not sure if "Swipe" is an Operating System utility or an "Application"... that is downloadable ...? My question is.... all of the videos that I've seen show the GNex using "tap" style texting, does anyone know if swipe will be available on the GNex device...?

    No swype isn't on nexus. You'll need to go to swipe.com and get the app from there

    Can't recall if these were listed in the other posts (wow, so many useful apps!), but I'm going to transfer what I can from the Fassy to the Nexus:

    • K-9 email
    • Flashlight
    • Amazon app (and also Kindle)
    • Various specialty GPS apps
    • Zedge
    • QR Droid Private
    • IMDb app
    • Scanner Radio
    • and since I can't d/l this anymore, try to transfer iBoobs


    I'll be installing Titanium Backup and if the OEM SMS app doesn't cut it try one of the alternatives already mentioned. Plus, all of my games.

    Edit: Oh, and Swype (can't live without that!)
