Since getting my first Android device 30 days ago, I have probably gone through a considerable amount of applications from the market. What better way to list favorites than doing a countdown 😎
10 – SwitchPro Widget – Paid
I use this widget to quickly turn WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS/Background Data on and off. Also allows me to see the exact status of my battery since the battery icon in the taskbar is not very accurate.
9 – Pandora
It’s Pandora, what more can I say. I just recently stumbled upon the “J. Cole” station. Great lineup of music.
8 – WordPress
I should probably rank this higher, but WordPress allows me native access to emuneee.com/blog to type/update posts, pages, etc. I have published a few of my posts right from my Captivate.
7 – Checkbook – Paid
This application is vital for me. Since I HATE writing of all types (checkbook, checks, bill paying…LOL), I keep all my transactions in Checkbook like a responsible adult. Allows any number of accounts.
6 – Facebook for Android
It’s a Facebook application on Android…pretty useful and better than touch.facebook.com.
5 – National Football Post
Since there is no official NFL application/widget (come on NFL!!!) I use the NFP Application to stay abreast on NFL news and news on the NY Jets.
4 – FeedR – Paid
Google Reader client for Android. Similar to Speeed Reader on Windows Mobile. Caches articles for offline reader and it’s easy to use.
3 – Touiteur – Paid
I have used a lot of Twitter applications. Twitter for Android, Seesmic for Android, Twidroyd, and Touiteur. Touiteur has the right mix of features and speed for me. Very easy to update my status and all that good stuff.
2 – Beautiful Widgets – Paid
I primarily use beautiful widgets for the Beautiful Weather widget. Presents weather information to me thats up to date. Also pulls weather for my location as well.
1 – Launcher Pro Plus – Paid
Replaces the stock TouchWiz 3 UI on my Captivate. Much needed improvement. Not only is it faster, but it is very customizable and comes with several useful widgets (browser favorites, contacts, messaging, & calendar/agenda). This application is a required application.
Some other honorable mentions: Google Maps, Amazon, EBay, Paypal, & 3G Watchdog
