    iRT Calendar replacement app: Makes Google calendar do so much more in a nice UI
    LOVE it! Can't believe it isn't a "hot" app. No other calendar compares. I was using DateBk on my Palm years ago and couldn't live without it. This is very similar.

    Jorte for the calendar month view and widgets

    Stats- shows data usage, txts and calls

    Fetch It- find your phone when it's stuck in the seat cushions

    CT Scheduler (beta)
    I agree, Jorte for calendar

    also I use MailDroid to replace the stock mail on my DX

    I am using the Welcome to Facebook | Facebook (facebook touch site) ... gives a better UI than the Android version of facebook and should be able to be updated independent of platform. Only glitch I have encountered is that only some of the contacts are listed in a page and the right side arrow to go to more is not selectable. I tend to search for a contact anyway, so not a deal breaker. Worth a look.

    There is a case for a number of web centric apps to be replaced by well thought out, touch based mobile sites but that is a wider debate ...
    Wow, that is awesome. thanks.

    Now that I've had my phone for several months here's my updated top 5.

    Launcher Pro
    - A kick butt replacement launcher
    APNDroid - Turn on and off carrier data, only works with GSM phones
    Tasker - The swiss army knife of apps, if you want to automate something on your phone, Tasker can most likely do it.
    Rainy Days - A weather app to display radar images. Works very well.
    KeePassDroid w/ Drop Box - Technically this is two, but using KeePass w/ Drop Box just rocks. My database stays in sync with all my machines and since it lives in the cloud it's backed up.

    Good Morning: I've been playing around with this one for a few days, it's an awesome alarm app called Good Morning, you can set it to read outloud custom text, the weather report for your area, play a song, a bunch of different alarms noises, and even tell you the temperature in Kelvins. And it's got snooze! Best alarm I've found on Android yet.

    Looks like the dev released a pay version in the last day or two that adds in the ability to read calendar entries. Haven't tried that out yet, but they've been adding features and doing bug fixes fairly regularly since I first discovered it a couple of weeks ago.
    really snazzy!

    Ive been using Good Morning for about a week now, I really like it. Nice to hear the updated weather as Im reaching for the snooze...LOL.

    Perhaps the dev could incorporate some different voices too at some point?

    If anyone ever hands you their android phone to "just look at", immediately open up the Marketplace and download this app (takes 5 seconds). Open it up and hand it back to them. Love the fur!

    For anyone who likes to play the board game Go, there is GOdroid (to play against the computer) or you can have live matches against other folks on the IGS network via Goigo.

    Godroid is free a lot of fun, especially if you are really inexperienced at Go (like me). The computer will provide plenty of challenge.

    Goigo is a paid app (I think $3 or something like that) and I haven't tried it yet. I just think it's cool that there is an IGS client for Android.

    FYI, there is also a KGS client for Android, but it is more expensive and I don't remember the name of it, but it looks pretty polished.

    -SR-
    There is also a free app called gobandroid that works in tandem with gnugo that you can use to play against the computer -- does a very nice job of it.

    The KGS client is a lot more expensive than most paid market apps -- I tried the free version when the program was in beta (free version is no longer available), and it was quite slick -- but I would really hesitate before spending the kind of money the app is going for -- which is a moot point, anyway, since paid market apps aren't available to me.

    I'm still pretty new to the android universe but so far my top 5 apps would.have to be (in no particular order):

    1. Robi defense- I drain my battery consistently with this game- its so addicting!
    2. Beautiful widgets + weatherbug pro (used TWC for a while, pretty solid)
    3. Last.fm- so amazing, I've been using last.fm for like 6 years so it knows my music taste extremely well
    4. Jorte for calendar management and tasks
    5. Newsrob for google reader- its the best reader app i've found so far

    I tried to list apps I haven't seen mentioned too often... some honorable mentions: seesmic (for twitter), 3bananas (note taking), dropbox, and appbrain.

    Figured this'd be a good thread to start in. (been lurking for quite a while.)

    My top 5 apps :

    1) LauncherPro plus (worth the 2.99 - get it while you can!)
    2) Beautiful Widgets
    3) Twidroid (twydroyd or something absurd like that now.)
    4) SportsTap
    5) Pandora

    Can't believe no one has mentioned Moov. I just found it today. Searches apps and contacts from a text box, can find most people and most apps with only 3-4 letters. Really seems to be a great app.
