I don't use the same number of apps as the most experienced Android users on the site, but I have to recommend a Twitter client called Twicca. It's free from the Market (well, it had better be, right?), but from having tried all the main Twitter clients, Twicca is probably the best. I live in an area that hasn't the most exemplary 3G coverage for whatever reason, and Twicca has always been the fastest Twitter client for pulling updates on my phone. It has a few bugs here and there (eg. it does randomly close at times), but all in all, Twicca has been my favorite client so far since it hits on the main points. The interface is quite nice as well, even though I do still prefer the Twitter for Android interface.

in 9 pages nobody mentioned Trillian yet? I just installed (although I have the pro version on the desktop) It almost made me juice my pants! It all my IM accounts up from my desktop to my device. I was in heaven.

I miss Goodreader from iPad immensely. Is there anything like that for my Android tablet? The nearest thing I've found it's Matano, but it's as intuitive as a car wheel covered in rusty nails (In Goodreader I could select a paragraph and copy, anotate, mark and highlight it without select it over and over again).

sshmote: use the phone as remote control for any player on the computer through ssh. It has profiles for mplayer, amarok, vlc, kaffeine and some more, but you can add your own commands for any other app (basically any app that runs or can be controlled from the command line).

Amarok2Remote doesn't need sshd but sshmote is more versatile and looks a lot better.

Gigbeat: I hate finding out that some band I like played live in my city and I didn't even notice. You just set up a list of bands in gigbeat and it'll tell you when any of them plays nearby.

RepliGo Reader and ezPDF Reader seems like good alternatives.

Since that post I've found repligo and indeed it's the best Android reader. Still not as good as Goodreader, but Im content.

SwipePad - Lets you set an invisible button that, once pressed, brings up a shortcut list of your pre-defined applications.

Pulse - A great news aggregator.

Wolfram Alpha - Supercomputer-like power in your pocket : P.

It can block users on the same network as you from accessing the internet. It makes use of ARP spoofing to do it.

Tasker. http://tasker.dinglisch.net/ Rules based automation app - its pretty darn good.

Yes I'm surprised the only mention of Tasker was two years back. It's amazing for automating the things that you do everyday. As Lifehacker puts it, you can turn your smartphone into a superphone with Tasker =)

Maybe it has been mentioned already but I just found Plex some days ago, and it's frigging awesome (albeit a bit expensive compared to your average Google Play app price).

Plex for Android

I've been just watching a Breaking Bad episode streamed from home to my phone over 3G, reencoded on the fly to lower the bitrate and keep the stream smooth.

For me, one of my favourite apps lately has been Cerberus Anti Theft https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lsdroid.cerberus

Granted the name might be a bit misleading as no app can stop your phone being stolen, however this could easily help you get it back. It has lots of useful features through the website once the app is installed, like taking pictures or recording audio without the thief knowing and allowing you to download those items through your email, and also locking the device with a pin, tracking with GPS (which you can enable within the app) and you can also reboot the phone (if you're bored enough, can do this continually to pee off the thief) and you can also wipe the device and SD card if things get drastic.

A licence for up to 5 devices simultaneously costs just ?2.49 as well. so it's a bit of a bargain.
