    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
    With LauncherPro can you get the flip alarm clock look on the home screen like the HTC sense version?

    1. Swype - must have, the only way to input text
    2. Handcent SMS - so much better than stock messaging app
    3. Opera Mini Browser - faster, better, smaller footprint, and uses less data than Dolphin, Skyfire and stock browser
    4. Phit Reload - the best game there is, challenging, fun, excellent time waster
    5. theTask - the best task manager with a perfecet UI and VERY responsive developer

    notable mentions are 3banana (note app), ES File Explorer, and Lookout (backs up contacts and pictures for free, and excellent "find my phone" feature

    #1: Handcent...like the customability and notification received icon.
    #2: Quick Settings...like having a quick tap to flashlight, bluetooth, wifi controls.
    #3: Pandora...probably should be #1.lol
    #4: Dashboard...quick glance at battery, memory useage and some other stuff..but mostly at ram useage I like it. Has task killer, but I don't use it.
    #5: Weatherbug elite. paid $1.99.

    Launcher pro plus ... really awesome UI, way better then the stock launcher and oddly faster, IMO.

    Dolphin Browser ... great browser, very innovative and fun (opera may be faster though, I haven't used it yet)

    Handcent ... Awesome SMS app, very customizable.

    I think it's funny that these all basically change the phone from stock android to my own little OS. Maybe one day Android will just be awesome enough to keep it stock?

    Lithium Music Player (btunes, whichever you prefer) ... music player, cooler then the stock (I double with isyncr to sync up with my itunes)

    Astro File Manager ... I like to rename apps, and this comes with a task killer which you can use to save battery.

    Beautiful Widgets ... Just makes the phone look awesome.

    You use these 6 apps, and you can basically build your own interface to however you want to do whatever you want.

    Launcher Pro Plus: Best launcher and includes new widgets which are always being added and updated. Before switching to Launcher Pro, you should activate "clean slate" as your current scene if using HTC Sense UI or it will run really slow because the Sense widgets are running in the background.

    Quick Desk: Extra screen for widgets and apps, launches with double tap on home key or works really nice when added as a swipe gesture over an icon on Launcher Pro. I don't have a single app icon on any screens after installing this with Launcher Pro. Super efficient!

    Jorte Calendar: This is the best calendar/tasks app I have used. And my previous device was a Blackberry Tour. The thing I like best about it is being able to read my calendar events in month view similar to the month view of Google Calendar website version.

    Handcent SMS: Just a better way to text if you prefer iPhone style.

    YouVersion: Best Bible app and available on most smart-phones.

    I figure i've lurker here long enough. After getting a Milestone on launch day (feb) here in canada, these are my most used apps.

    Battery Widget - Accurate and small (1x1)

    Advanced Task Manager free - Just put up the shortcut and bam, hit the blue button whenever you're finished with any app or you feel like your phone is bogging down.

    Launcher Pro Plus - Only second app i've purchased. Best home replacement easily.

    Astro - File manager/explorer. Works perfect. Free!

    Bluetooth File Transfer - Self explanatory

    Barcode Scanner - For qr codes

    Craigsnotifica - I've bought so much simply from using this app. MUST HAVE

    Dropbox - Have Syncing folders on your phone and your pc. Works wonderfully.

    Engadget - Self-explanatory

    Facebook - Self-explanatory

    Appbrain/Fast Web Installer - Way better than market

    FxCamera - Toycam effect is the best!

    Gstrings - Best guitar tuner

    Handcent SMS - You already know this

    IMDb - official imdb.com app. no brainer

    Jorte - sweet calendar

    Key Ring - now I leave 6 cards at home instead of my wallet (make sure brightness is turned up or it has trouble scanning)

    Opera Mini - fast browser

    Ringdroid - ringtoner maker. so easy

    Robo Defense - my first purchase in marketplace, fun game

    Swype - great screen keyboard

    Twitter - Self-explantory

    yellowpages.ca - phone book in your pocket

    No Lock - Just got this one, goodbye lock screen!

    ES File Explorer
    BRUT Maps Navigation (since Google are being slow with releasing Nav in Sweden)
    STHLM Travelling - awesome for checking train and bus schedules on the go and finding stops close to me

    Those are the ones I use the most. I'm using all the yongzh emulators frequently (primarily SNESoid) as well as psx4droid. I use OfficeSuite for all my document needs.

    I've had the phone for two weeks, and have tried many applications. Today my favorites are, in no particular order:

    1. LauncherPro Plus

    2. QuickDesk Beta - a hidden screen to place widgets, shortcuts, apps, that you can call up with the double tap on the home button.

    3. SMS Popup - "An app that allows in depth customization of SMS/MMS notifications including a popup dialog that shows when a message is received." I tried Handcent SMS and chompSMS but neither of those did what I wanted. Neither does SMS Popup, but comes closer without the bloat.

    4. SoundHound - I kept going back between SoundHound and Shazam (play music and it recognizes and will identify song / singer).

    5. AppAlarm Lite - wake up to music - Pandora, Stitcher, Slacker Radio

    Dropbox - sync / share files between computes;
    PrinterShare Premium - print on wifi printers
    Smart Shortcuts - tried a few others, like this one - organize all applications into a few folders that I can keep on my screen.

    (sorry couldn't stop at 5)

    1. Weather and Toggle Widget-Paid
    2. Album Art Grabber-Paid
    3. Handcent SMS-Free
    4. ShopSavvy bar code reader-Free
    5. Tesla LED-Free
