You have the usual;
- Google Sky
- Spirit Level
But what else have people found?
This is the Android AR app, with it you can implement layers, essentially 3rd party sub-apps with info.
So you can have the AusWiki layer which trawls Wikipedia for local (to you) sites and displays the appropriate wiki page. Or Food and Drink which shows you the closet places to get, wait for it, food or drink!
What's cool about this is you can then get directions on how to get there via Google maps with a few touches.
Leckie put me on to this Messages replacement and it seems pretty good so far. Very customisable with lots of options.
Any other takers?
====================================Here are ones that have been mentioned in the thread.
Astrid - task manager (able to sync with Remember the Milk which in turn can be synced with Gmail)
Evernote - create text, image, audio notes
Delicious - bookmarks
Barcode scanner - quick access to apps
Astro - file manager
Shazam - music recognition
Weatherbug - weather w/ widget
Wifi toggle - widget
Gmail unread count - widget
Cardiotrainer - exercise stuff with gps/maps integration
Advanced Task Killer - kills apps freeing up memory
Stop 3 Data Roaming - Essential if you're with 3. This app stops you from piggybacking on Telstra's network and getting charged for data.
Ringdroid - Lets you create a ringtone with any sound file on your phone.
SMS Popup - Greatly expands the options available for SMS notifications. You can set it to remind you, change the notification vibration and heaps more.
Smooth Calendar - Great agenda widget that can show next 3 items on the calendar.
Listen - Pretty good for Audio Podcasts. Buggy at times with manual refreshes.
dPod - I use this for Video Podcasts (Revision3 mainly).
KeePassDroid - Password Manager. Temporarly puts username and password in clipboard from Notifications. Same password file can be shared with KeePassX in Linux.
Barcode Scanner - Timesaver when spotting useful apps on androlib.com - just scan the QCode and you're on the app's market page.
2G3G - Widget shortcut to 2G-only setting.
APNDroid - Widget to turn on/off data by renaming APNs.
3G Watchdog - As the name suggests, keep an eye on data usage over 3G.
XE Currency - Basic FX app.
Seesmic - Twitter client. Not sure what's it's like if you're a poster, but fine for twitter lurkers.
Wifi Analyzer - Decent Wifi Scanner. Has list & chart views.
TaskPanel - For killing apps in memory. Using this less now to be honest.
London Tube - good for users of the Tube.
Pkt Auction for Ebay
EasyTether - For tethering
Dolphin Browser HD
3G Watchdog - monitors how much of your mobile data quota you use. Will give warnings when you near your quota. Can set the quota, time period etc. A must with the shitty data packages available.
LED Light - I hate to admit it, I've been using this a lot when I turn off the lights in the house
Go! Sydney - Cityrail time table app. I'm not in Sydney yet, but I've already got it
Juiceplotter - lets me know about my battery. The longer I've used it, the more accurate the reading is.
Shazam - I like my music and I hate not being able to identify it. Great app that I've been using since my iMate 9502
