Pocket Casts - If any of you are looking for an awesome podcast manager, take a look at this one.
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.
SyncMyPix - When your Facebook contacts don't sync, sort it out with this.
Quick Event - Allows you to write in a normal manner when adding things to the calendar.

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....sdroid.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.
