    Hard to settle on 5, but I think this is the list, primarily because they add really useful features that don't replicate standard applications. There are others I use a lot (like Jorte and Dolphin) that are very useful, but I could manage with the stock calendar and browser.

    Gesture Search
    Settings Profile
    Titanium Backup (or MyBackup)
    V5 Battery Saver

    Other heavily used apps:

    Unrevoked (necessary for some of the other apps)
    Spare Parts (for battery monitoring, mostly, but other things, too)
    System Panel
    WiFi Tether
    WiFi Manager
    RPN Calc
    Weather Bug

    An update for me, long time since I've entered.

    The Weather Channel (widget) (pretty, and everything Weatherbug has, but free)
    Docs to Go (that should be a free entry tho')
    CompanionLink so that I can keep Palm Desktop and still sync
    And Tesseract's Solitaire

    Until Laridian's myBible comes to Android.

    I came from the Instinct, even though the phone is just ok, I love the "live search" feature. I've been using "where" on my EVO. It has way too many old listings. Any suggestion on any app that works like "live search"?

    tough to list just 5, but here are my top 5 that I haven't seen mentioned very often:

    Dialer One - great phone/contact app replacement that lets you search by name or number using the dial pad. Also has numerous other options like horizontal swiping for switching between contacts, favs & call log, and speed dial options.

    QuickDesk - a "pop up" home screen that can be opened anywhere on the phone without interrupting what your doing. Open it by double tapping the home button. Great for widgets like battery widget and settings shortcuts. Works flawlessly with LauncherPro, ADW Launcher & other launcher apps.

    Alarm Clock Plus V2 - just like the default alarm clock but with mp3/"run app on awake" alarms, math problems to snooze/dismiss, auto off timer and lots more features that are missing from the android alarm clock

    S2 Calendar Widget - monthly view widget with tons of options and a shortcut to your calendar app when you tap on it

    Wifi Status - places an icon in your status bar when your wifi is on but not connected, reminding you to turn it off when there's no connection so you can save some battery power. Clicking on the status bar entry disables your wifi radio in one click. Simple but really useful

    Some other great ones...
    SMS Backup - automatically syncs your sms messages to your gmail with a customizable label
    City Caller ID - automatically tells you the location of incoming calls & can also look up number locations using the app
    AK Notepad - Simple notepad app that organizes your notes with tags. Also auto syncs with www.snaptic.com (really easy to use online memo saver)
    mp3 download / iMusic - searches the web for mp3s and downloads them straight to your phone, really simple and useful

    Jorte Calendar ( does everything I need a calendar to do)
    Note Everything (think I have tried them all. This is a winner)
    B-Folders (best password, credit card, bank vault but very pricey)


    Maildroid (beta) (after a week of use it has replaced K-9 on my DINC. Great support)
    Sign (great concept, new speed dialer)

    QuickDesk is awesome already, and still under development. Thanks for the tip! (An Android phone, which can multitask, should have something like this built in in order to actually do so!)

    I'm looking for some good apps that seem to fly under the radar. All of the "best of" lists and even the top 5 app threads are useless they all mention stuff like twitter apps and pandora. I'm looking for those gems that take a little more digging such as quickdesk (love it), jotter and cubed music player. Any suggestions or places to go to find these?

    Andromax - a clock/battery/signal widget for the home screen. Think Beautiful Widgets, but with no weather.

    Quick Settings - a nice settings switcher that doesn't take up any space on the screen. It allows you to access it in the notification bar, or voice search button. I have mine linked to the Andromax widget so that it opens if I touch the battery graphic.

    Lithium Music Player - Already gave it a mention in another thread, but will mention it here too. Crossfade between tracks, and has a really slick user interface.

    Useful Apps:
    Advanced Task Killer (The free version now allows automated task killing at intervals)
    BatteryTime Lite (Handy to see how much battery life is left)
    Rom Manager (Only if you like to get ROMs.)
    Pure Grid Calendar (If you don't have another calendar Widget)
    AndroZip (For Unzipping compressed files)
    ASTRO File Manager (For dealing with the unzipped and other files)

    Fun Apps:
    Wapedia (For quickly looking up stuff on Wikipedia)
    SpeedX 3D (A great time killer)
    Shazam (Free)
    SoundHound ($5)
    Last.fm (Free Internet Radio and Makes list of songs you've listened to if you have a free account)
    Phit Reload (Puzzle game)
    Ringdroid (Make your own custom ringtones)
    GameBoid (Game Boy Advance Emulator)

    Hope these are useful. I recommend all of them. Some are useful together, EG ASTRO, AndroZip and Gameboid.

    Also some or a lot of these are known, but they're still handy.

    I think that waze could be REALLY cool if there were more people on it. It is like combining Trapster, and Google Maps, but with a wiki and social component. You can actually send a message to other cars on the road that show up on the map... I just tested this today with another developer who was running it on his iPhone4. It still has a little ways to go, but it is VERY cool.

    Just downloaded Waze to give it a try. The iPhone version of Trapster does have more features like the ability to message other users. it would be nice if they would add those features on the Android version.
