Ok, what are the 'must have' apps for Android?
The ones I really like so far are:
Advanced Task Killer - a must have
Daily Strip - get your daily dose of Dilbert, Garfield etc.
Google Sky Map
RAC Traffic Services
ping, port scanner vnc
that might just be me being geeky!
Calendar Snooze together with a calendar home page widget (if you use your Android as a PDA)
Google Sky Map (finally I can replace my I-Spy book of astronomy)
Google Navigator (only thing so far that required a reboot to get working)
OpenSpeed with SimpleSi mod (hello :) ) to auto set speed limit based on a Google Earth KML file of speed limit signs. (Beta testers welcome :) )
K-9 Mail (better mail client than standard IMO)
ConnectBot (SSH client)
3banana (notepad with sync)
Twitter for Android
Rimshot (sound effect)
ASTRO File Manager
Openspeed sounds good, can't find it on the market, where can I get it?

Any chance of a copy of beebplayer as author has withdrawn it pending imminent abilty for droid devices to work natively (but who wants to wait?)
Dolphin Browser. Makes the default browser look antique.
@SimpleSi Yeah, np, if you could point me in the direction of how to get the app off the phone :-)
The team that started this had the idea of mapping all speed signs as you go along and then using that as a ref - but thats not something to be doing while driving!
I've modded it to work in MPH and to load in a csv conversion of a Google Earth KML file. I've already entered about 50 points which should cover my normal work routes.
@teejay I was hoping you had a .apk - I've got no idea how/if possible to transfer an installed app :(
Figured it :-)

PM'd you Si, send me you mail addy and I'll send it to you.
Just sent this via dophin, maybe possible to post from pub after confs now :)
I've got an old, and slowly outdating G1, so memory is limited for me. Getting to the point now where when I install an app I get a low space message - so I had to remove all the stuff that wasn't 'necessity' such as Dolphin Browser. Now my complete list is:
AnySoftKeyboard (soft keyboard as standard one stopped working)
CallFilter (block unwanted numbers)
DailyStrip (dilbert etc - xkcd doesn't work on it though!)
Documents To Go (free version allows read only, but that's enough for me)
Facebook Sync (pulls facebook pictures down and stores them for each contact)
Handcent SMS (awesome SMS app)
Movies (flixter - watch trailers etc)
PS3 Trophies (so I can see who is online without turning my PS3 on)
Sky News (includes widget which is awesome)
The Weather Channel (also includes widget)
TjekFootball (live to the minute football scores and stats)
UltraMate Diary (so I can log when the neighbours are being noisy)
World DroidCup (like TjekFootball but for the world cup specifically)
That's quite a lot of apps actually, but that's my phone memory pretty much maxed out!
Got a HTC Magic, desperate for December and a new contract.
Shazam - for that what's that song? moment.
Settings Profile - a profile for every occasion.
Chomp SMS - Txts as a conversation.
Wavesecure - Security.
Trapster - to warn of the yellow boxes at the roadside.
Goggles - useful now and then.
Maps - for the free sat nav.
LogMeIn - not tried it yet. I downloaded last night.
Open Home - for the multiple screens etc.
I am going to buy out my contract and move to O2 and get a HTC Desire, and add the majority of the apps here. :) YAY
