    Smart Rotator (free) - allows you to enable the accelerometer to switch user defined apps into landscape mode. Helpful if you decide to turn the accelerometer off globally, but want certain apps like Maps or Gallery to support landscape mode.

    I have been using SPB shell, I like it but it isn't a must have. Just eye candy
    That's some darn expensive eye candy...

    Opera Mobile is amazing. I didn't wanna install a different browser, but I'm glad I did. Way smoother.

    Agreed. I also decided to update the user agent so that it displays the full web and no mobile sites.

    I tried Dolphin HD for a few minutes before trying Opera Mobile. I wasn't a fan of any of the color schemes for Dolphin HD so that turned me off quickly. Opera Mobile has a more streamlined, clean look.

    I tried opera but wasn't impressed. I like dolphin mini much better. Haven't tried the HD one.

    I love this thread - it has really helped me find some great apps i just never would have known about - i especially am grateful for the K9 email app - total different league than the stock one (and touchdown doesnt work for non exchange emails accounts). The one app I still cant find is a good contact manager - I have tried GoContact (didnt like) and Acontact (creates duplicates of everything) but no game changer like the K9 app... any ideas group?

    Just found this one - Missed Message Flasher

    I have the Netarchy kernel, so have been using BLN which is great. But still wanted repeat audio/vibrate notifications. This thing works great and plays nice with Google Voice.

    Had problems with NoLED since I wanted to leave the screen off at all times and just utilize the repeat notification function. It just wouldn't behave with the screen being off.

    https://market.android.com/details?i...messageflasher

    Light up the screen, play a sound, or vibrate at set intervals when a new message is received or when a call is missed. Useful on phones without an LED indicator. Tested on a Samsung Captivate/Galaxy S.

    Currently monitors: Missed calls, SMS/text, Gmail, K-9 Mail, Google Voice, notification tone.
