    Default What apps are worth paying for?

    As this is my 1st Android device, I've pretty much stuck to free/ad supported apps up until now. I have quite a few apps (over 100) and many do the same thing, but have fewer/different features or they are implemented differently. UI also is a factor. Some just look better than others.

    Just interested in getting input from other Rezound users on which paid apps they think are the best. I would like:

    1. App Name/developer
    2. Comparable free/ad supported
    3. Function (what's the app do? Utility? Tool? Business use? Game?
    4. Features you think make it worth $?? (however much you paid)

    I'm particularly interested in business apps that can work within an Corporate Enterprise, multi-network/domain environment. Things that are really productive and allow you to get "real" work done, while away from the office and your PC.

    Also would be good to mention if you are unlocked, rooted and/or custom ROM'd

    Thanks in advance to all who give their opinions.

    Screebl Pro - fantastic app for keeping screen on when needed, and turned off fast when not to save battery
    Alarm Clock Plus - paid for ad free version because app is my favorite alarm clock app. very functional
    Astrid Power Pack - i like Astrid and the power features
    Battery Indicator Pro - best battery monitoring app out there IMO
    Business Ringtones Pro
    CalenGoo - best paid Calendar App I found so far
    Extended Controls - best on screen widget app I found 2 years ago so I bought it.
    Office Calculator Pro - calculator app that did what i wanted. keeps calculator 'tape'
    Plume Premium - my favorite Twitter app and if you use it enough you don't want to see the ads.
    Pure Grid Calendar Widget - Scrollable calendar widget is awesome
    SetCPU - if you are rooted, excellent app
    Titanium Backup Pro - also if you are rooted, worth going Pro
    Smugfolio - if you use smugmug this app is heads and tails above the offical Smugmug app.
    Soundhound - like Shazaam.
    Weatherbug Elite - tried a lot of weather apps and liked this one the best so i paid for the exra features and no ads.


    keyboards - I've tried SwiftKey, SlideIT, Swype and FlexT9

    FlexT9 is worth the money.

    a bunch of these apps were offered free on the Amazon App Store which offers 1 free per day. I used to check every day but not so much now. They are still worth paying for me.

    oh yeah. Folder Organizer. definitely one of my top 3 apps. for some reason when I went down my list I forgot that was a paid app. can't live without it.

    TuneInRadio Pro I have, that was also free from Amazon.

    PicSayPro is another good one if you like to edit photos. with this awesome camera it's a good possibility.

    At this point, I consider any app that doesn't fc every 2 mins. is worthy of a few $$.

    SwiftKey X - best keyboard in my opinion, and I've tried quite a few. Worth every penny.
