I’m now a android lover after switching from a iPhone 3gs to a Samsung galaxy S 6 months ago.
My current apps look something like this.
75 total, 68 free (90%), 7 paid (9%) | Total Size: 138MB
Total spent: $14.99
You can view the list of my installed apps here.
Here i will note some must have apps for your droid and a few other cool apps as well. Im not going to write an essay about each of them, just list them and hopefully you can download them and see how good they are for yourself.
Top 10 Apps
- Handcent SMS. – The best sms application ever.

- Launcher Pro – This is the fastest and best launcher available.
- Switch pro Widget – The widget is best for your homescreen. Currently mine displays battery %, wireless toggle, blutooth toggle, vibrate/silent/loud toggle, a flashlight, 3g toggle, and a shutdown and restart button.
