I have arrived in the future! Or, I have a smart phone now and am wondering what apps you folks use/ recommend/ run from for Android.

So far I've got these I'm rather liking:

- AVG's Antivirus for it's, well virus scanning stuffs, and the additional phone locator thingy (thought Motorola offer this too)
- Bump for sharing media/ contact info between phones (also available for the iPhone, which kinda makes up for it's lack of blutoothyness). It's quite nice once you get the hang of it, and worth getting if you swap pictures and stuffs with others often.
- Drop Box for up/ down loading content and sharing stuff. I find this particularly quick to use when sharing pics with the fella.
- Last.fm I really like this app for listening to pretty much my entire music collection as well as other 'radio' stations, without having it all on my SD card. Though I mostly use it on wifi.

Thats all rubbish. You should download AIR HORN. It has multiple types of horn.

I also use:

Advanced task killer
Astrid (todo list)
Beyondpod (podcasts)
Camscanner (this just creates pdfs from photos but it does magic enhance like on csi)
Kindle
Pubtran (amazing public transport app including tubes)
Tricorder
Locale

Aldiko is a pretty good little ebook reader. I've just finished The Invisible Man and have moved on to The Art of War. Free out of copyright books are going to do wonders for my lack of a classical education.

You may not need the task killer, apparently the newerversions of Android are fine without.

I think it depends on the phone and how you're using it. Android doesn't close things until it runs out of memory, but my phone slows to a crawl long before then. This is on 2.1 (with a bunch of orange crap included).
