New to android again
Just got my GS3 yesterday after about 2 years away from Android. Feels good!
Now this thread isn't just a "Yay welcome me to the family!" type thread, I'd also like to know of any must have apps and tips since the last android phone i used was a Nexus One.
Not rooted yet, but planning on it!

Re: New to android again
I'm curious of what you're impressions are of the newer android versions versus what you had 2 years ago.
Here are a few of my favorite apps:
Adjustable screen brightness bar that's accessible from almost any screen and within just about every app. Touch the bar to adjust your brightness. App also lets you resize the bar, change it's color/shape, and position it where ever you want.
Lets you print from your phone to any network printer via Google Cloud Printing
A cool social networking navigation app. Let's you mark road hazards, cops, and other things and see warnings from others. Input can be made by voice as well as touch.
I find the 1% brightness on GS3 to be too bright for night time. I use this widget to dim the screen futher.

Wuala or Dropbox
ES File Explorer (works great for rooted devices)
If you go AOSP, check this Gapps package out, as it has cool inverted apps and some of the extras I mention:
