    SwitchPro - very customizable with up to 7 buttons on one row - you can even drop the background so all you see are the icons. I have GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, Battery Indicator and Flashlight all one one row.

    Launch-X - a quick launcher that works well for adding direct call for contacts, most used apps and bookmarks. You can cycle through 2 screens with the free version. The pro version allows 7 screens.

    Dazzle Configurable Switcher
    I am currently using it only for a 1x1 brightness/ auto popup, which gives all the possible brightness options from a 1x1 space with good easy of use. Another advantage is being able to put as many buttons in a widget if you want. You can have 2 buttons in a 2x1 space, but also 3 or 4 buttons if you don't mind a smaller size. All those "1 huge 1x1 widget for each button or option" apps are really nothing for me.

    Launcher Pro Plus
    I use the Bookmarks, Contacts widgets and the Calendar (not much of a social web person). The widgets (you have to pay) are very nice as well. Layout is not fully to my taste, because they do not always seem very space-efficient for my homescreens, but their functionality is great . Good payment and update options for those who can't buy it using the Android Market.

    Launcher Pro
    Again? Yes. No. The widgets in the paid Plus are nice, but the 'scrollable widgets' feature in Launcher Pro is what is seriously improving the functionality of homescreen widgets. Much information available, from the same amount of space .

    Android Agenda Widget
    I have tried a whole list of agenda/calendar widgets, but liked these the most (together with Launcher Pro's widget). It's pretty space-efficient, showing me a lot of events in a limited space, while it's still easy to read everything at a glance. It looks nice and it's scrollable.

    Okay, that's not 5, unless you count the Launcher Pro Plus widgets as single ones :P. But these are all I use, I don't like having tons of widgets all over the place. If I don't know by heart where all the widgets are and what they do, I know I won't really use them.

    Alternative dialer. Another app that improves a much-used and much-seen part of your phone. It has a favorites screen with contact pics, a normal numbers pad that has much better search options that Android's default, decent call logs. My favorite feature: your system's (homescreen) wallpaper as a background behind the app's transparant interface. Looks real good! BUT, these guys should get a free (ad-supported, or limited features) version out there, because if more people would be able to try it without paying or pirating, it would be much more popular. (So they get more money and can spend that on improving it more :P.)
    Agreed with Launcher Pro Plus and Appbrain (is that a widget?). I like this phone dialer, it's pretty, but yeah, I'd like to try a free version. No way I need to buy it. :/

    Hehe, re-check my post. I was confusing myself, I was reading this topic at the same time as the '5 favorite apps' topic, so while writing my post I started to mix it up...

    I like FrameMe based on the screenshots in Appbrain. Not sure I can justify buying it. The stock photo frame widget works fine for me for now.

    Haha, no worries. I am dumb and haven't figured out what "scrollable widgets" means in Launcher Pro. Care to enlighten?

    ok now i have found a decent set of switches for wifi b/t silence and brightness settings. curve fish has a decent set and they are free with the option to donate. i definitely think these are more appealing then alot of the other alternatives out there. im still on the look for better but these will do good for the time being. i wish they had a vibrate switch as well but they don't.
    Quick Settings

    Includes volume controls for just about everything....also flashlite.

    Sure. Imagine you have a calendar widget on your screen that is displaying 10 text lines of calendar information. But in total, there are of course many more lines of information in your calendar. With scrollable widgets (enabled in Launcher Pro and supported/enabled by the widget) you can swipe up/down with your finger, and it will scroll up or down, so you can move down in the list and see your other information.

    If you do not have the Launcher Pro Plus widgets, you can check out Agenda Widget for an example of a widget that really benefits from this feature. (Don't forget to enable it in the Android Widget settings.)

    1- Launcher Pro Plus
    2- Widget Locker
    3- Beautiful Widgets
    4- Desktop visualizer

    ...those 4 alone basically give you full ability to customize your entire UI/UX on any android phone.

    If I had to throw in a 5th it'd probably be Phone Silencer. Its a prettyimited purpose app but really helpful to me because I always forget to turn on my ringer at the end of my work day.
