    I have added soooooooooooo many apps lol. Coming from the Storm where I was limited in selection to now being able to download anything i want has been been a really fun experience. I have a lot of apps but only a few I really like. Im running:


    Weather Widget
    Keyring
    Advanced Task Killer
    Kids Paint
    Live Football Scores
    Locale
    Ringdroid
    Shazam
    Spikem Lite
    Twidroid
    TwitterRide (Havent picked a fav yet)

    Im also running Handcent SMS (which is REALLY nice) but I cant get it to overlap the build in SMS client instead of running with it. Let me know if you have a fix or suggestion for it

    Weather Widget - Donate is the main app (paid) and the Weather Widget Forecast is a free plug-in for it. It gives you several weather widget options like the HTC style flip clock with weather. When you tap on the weather area of widget the plug-in opens and you get a three day forecast with some animation of the current weather.

    snesoid - Same thing here playing some fun old games
    Weather Bug
    Advanced App Killer
    Facebook Widget
    Docs To Go

    I am going to spend all tomorrow trying to customize this even more and finding something I like more.

    I think I might try a themeing program I installed PandaHome But didn't really like it over all. I might try aHome or one of the others. This is amazing so far though.

    EVeryone seems to love it. If you buy it and you don't like it you can get a refund if its within 24 hours. SO you can try without the worry of I wasted my money on this.

    -Advanced Task Killer/Manager thing
    -Places Directory
    -Pandora
    -TuneWiki
    -StreamFurious -- only until TuneWiki allows me to enter my own URL, can't find one streaming app to do everything I want the way I want it. TuneWiki is really close.
    -Listen
    -Twidroid
    -NewsRob -- GREAT for any google reader users out there.
    -Transdroid for monitoring/adding torrents to my uTorrent client on my home PC
    -SambaExplorer to grab files from my home PC via wifi
    -Shazam
    -SportsTap -- I'd prefer to use Google's Scoreboard app, but SportsTap is WAY -better. Get with it Google =)
    -OI File Manager
    -OurGroceries, trying out a shared/synced grocery list between myself and the girlfriend.

    just silly things really:

    -missed call (like berry buzz on blackberry/LED notifications for sms/missed call/calendar & a few other things, i think bluetooth and low batt??)
    -magic 8 ball
    -toddler lock (loved this on G1, my 2yo loves it and he can't get into the phone at all)
    -android lightsaber
    -digital clock widget (but i'm looking for a better clock/date widget)
    -Get Pills (helps me to remember to take different vitamins and meds)
    -horoscope widget (i'll probably delete_
    -daily horoscope
    -SMS Backup (LOVED this when i had G1, it auto backs up your sms to your gmail acct, sets up a folder and everything.
    -weather bug & widget (i'm debating getting something else, maybe beautiful widgets or weather widgets-donate)

    i am looking for a color coded calendar though...in agenda view on native calendar it's color coded for the diff calendars on my google calendar, but not in month view...i want for example, my events to be pink, son1 to be green, son2 to be blue, son3 to be orange, etc....like the Treo calendar!!

    ETA: just added Key Ring, it lets you scan your store keychain thingys that have a bar code so that it's all on your phone. i always forget my grocery store card in the car and now i'll have it with me

    That's a pretty extensive list right there! I'm downloading apps left and right as well. My storm would have blown up if I had tried to put that many apps on it!

    let me know if you can get shopsavvy to work, it never seems to be able to scan the barcode. but other barcode readers (amazon, and barcode scanner) work just fine.

    and for the backgrounds app, how do the backgrounds look on your phone? i used another background app and everything would look like crap (the files weren't in the proper aspect to keep them from having to be cropped)

    nice list btw, thanks for the commentary as i'm sure it'll help a lot of people out when looking for apps

    ok, so here's my list.

    Amazon app - the barcode scanner makes it so easy to compare prices of something that i see in a store to amazon, who is really the only place to compete with imho.

    astrid - nice task list with widget

    astro - file manager, however i'm thinking of removing it and just keeping OI

    barcode scanner - easy way to find stuff in marketplace

    break the blocks - c'mon, i had a blackberry before, how could i not have a brickbreaker equivalent

    cardiotrain - great exercising app with a neat idea for mapping runs. i'm thinking of buying the weight tracking part of the app neat way to keep on track.

    Fishing 2 go lite - kind of fun, don't know if i'll keep it

    Flying Aces - i had a game like this on my storm and missed it. draw flight paths for planes to help them land. fun time waster

    GDocks notepad - great notepad app that logs into google docs and saves a copy there for you

    Get Pills - great way to remind me to take my meds. noone likes crazy.

    Google Sky Map - just plain neat

    Google Voice - it's where my voicemails go

    Hi AIM - aim.

    Hyperspace - kind of neat, like labyrinth but in space again don't know if i'll keep

    i music - neat way to find that song you just need right away. don't forget to buy it if you like it! (the song)

    imeem mobile - interesting alternative to pandora

    light racer - tron meets snake

    movies - i like to go to the movies. finds theatres, shows previews, etc.

    my verizon - good way to keep track of minutes and txts etc

    OI file manager - file manager, more basic than Astro, but it does all i really need.

    open sudoku - addicting and brain exercising

    pandora - got to have it

    photoshop.com mobile - neat and could come in handy

    picsay - just plain fun

    radiant - fun retro/modern take on space invaders, complete with cheesy dialog. good times

    Shazam - handy, find the name of the song playing

    speed test - kind of neat, but useless in the long run i guess. probably gonna get uninstalled soon

    superpages mobile - handy, the Augmented reality part of it is kind of neat. probably keep it until layar's browser gets updated

    Swift - good twitter app

    Torrent - Fu - lets me control the transmission bittorrent client on my htpc from anywhere. SO SO HANDY. it's like having a dvr you can make sure is recording your shows from anywhere.

    Unit Converter - self explanatory.

    Weather Widgets Donate - really nice weather widget with animations, 3 day forecast, HTC style flip clock. well worth the money

    so that's about it. wow, i didn't realize i had downloaded so much stuff!


    so i guess my question is for those of you that have downloaded your a** off with this beaut.... how is the performance on the phone effected? noticing any lag yet? coming from the world of BB i cant imagine this still being at optimal level
    no lag whatsoever. it's freaking amazing and refreshing to be able to use the phone like i should be able to.
