    Nexus One\Android: Recommended Apps

    Well, we've had them for a couple of weeks now, so what have you put on there that is 'essential'?
    Me, I currently have 3:

    1. Dolphin Web Browser (free). Much better than the default browser and supports multi-touch, tabs and gestures.

    2. SmrtGuard (free). Remote back up, tracking, call logs and data wipe, all in a nice package.

    3. Better Keyboard ($1.99). Does what it says on the tin.

    Was that the hack, or a real update? Oh, and no, no customs notice...yet.

    I'll await the update I think. At least until either Shaun or Ric get their hands on it in the next few days!

    Open the Market app and browse them. Or is that what isn't working?

    I installed the update manually this morning, couldnt wait any longer for multi touch. Very easy to do, just make sure you have plenty of juice on the battery or its plugged in.

    If you're into augmented reality like me then you'll need LAYAR - brilliant app and good way to show off what phones with android can do.
