The header “Must Have” Apps should be changed to “Awesome Apps” or something like that. But hey, if they are awesome, they are “Must Have” Apps. So after quite sometime I have a few more Apps to add to the “Must Have” list.
- Go Launcher EX
Most Android users are aware that there is no better home screen/launcher app better than HTC Sense. Me being a HTC Desire S user, recommend you to try this Launcher. It is simple to use, Very light weight and feature rich. It has some pre-loaded transition effects (3D) for every action that you do, and yes, in-spite of all these effects it manages to use your battery power to the minimal. Loads of customization’s possible, loads of themes available and most of them for Free. It supports widgets for every app I have come across, only some in-built HTC Sense widgets didn’t work.

- PlayerPro Music Player
I would say there is a thin line between the two Music Players, the one mentioned earlier, “PowerAmp” and this one “PlayerPro”. PowerAmp comes with inbuilt Equalizer, while here we have to add a free DSP Plug-in to it. But I somehow feel its a little more powerful than the in-built one of PowerAmp. Also, PlayerPro does a better job when it comes to searching for Album Art and lyrics of a song. The Lock Screen widget of the player is also a little better as it supports Swipe input to change tracks. Try the 7-Day Trial and then buy it.

- Astrid Task/Todo List
I have done a lot of trials on many Todo Apps, some paid one’s too. But this is the best one so far. It is simple, light weight and effective. inspite of being so simple, it yet looks elegant. Feature wise, it has almost everything you want. syncs with Astrid.com, Producteev.com, and Gtasks too. The way this App gives reminders is something very different and what I love. It makes completing your tasks, even creating them fun. Reminders are given by asking you “Are You Free? You have so and so task lined up for you”. It brings a smile on your face. Supports repetitive tasks, creating Lists with just a few clicks. It supports plug-ins to enhance a few features. All of it is Free, except for some plug-ins.

- Camera ZOOM FX
This is a Camera replacement and a photo enhancer all in one. It is a Must Have in-spite of it being a paid one because it’s worth every penny. Gives you the ability to add some photo effects to your picture while clicking itself. Let’s you have control over your Autofocus(if your phone has the ability to). Add’s features like Time Lapse(similar to self timer), Stable Shot(which clicks only when it can get a stable shot), Night Mode, Burst Mode, control over your Flash. Voice based shoot is one feature I loved. Say Click or shoot to click a picture. Nice. Isn’t it? You can add more hundreds of frames and effects to your full size pics, i.e. in full camera resolution. All of these composites, props, frames can be downloaded as plug-ins for Free. It is a Camera Replacement and a Must Have.

- AppBrain App Market
I would recommend this app only for the recommendation this app gives. It syncs with your phone, saves your list of installed apps and based on your present list, recommends you to new apps to download. Works well and I have found some decent apps from with the help of AppBrain. you can manage your apps from this one app itself, i.e. send them to SD Card, Uninstalling them, Update them all at once. You can also browse through various apps (some that are not available on Google Android Market) with well managed categories. It’s Free.

- Doodle Grub – Twisted Snake
This is a game. And if you loved the age old Snake that started with Nokia’s, you are bound to fall in love with this game. You control the snake using the accelerometer of your phone, eat up the apples and grow, let your head be away from those horny creatures and use them to cut your tail. Make high scores and share them on Twitter/Facebook. Try and climb up the leaderboard. Ok. Enough said. Try this game and see for yourself.
