It all depends on what you use the phone for :D

I use LauncherPro, Fancy Widget (see signature), Stock Browser, HTC IME Keyboard and Standard Google Maps Navigation.

Works perfect for what I use it for, but as said it depends what you want from your phone.

Most of the fun of having an Android Phone is customizing it to your liking, spending 5 hours fine tuning and then changing it to something completely different just because :D

You could have just one screen with 3 or 4 of your most used apps at the bottom and stick a nice big clock at the top - your dock being used for calls ,texts and web access.....this is what alot of people do.

LauncherPro, Quickpic, Dolphin Browser HD, Beautiful Widgets are all very popular on these forums and are a good starting place.

Best advice is to perhaps look at the homescreen thread http://android.modaco.com/content/zte-blad...ur-home-screen/

and get an idea of what you want it to look like - only you yourself know what functionality you need from the phone.

Although no-one else on here seems to mention it, I like Go Launcher EX. You can make it behave like the stock launcher but stick more apps on each page.

qq player is good for videos that are not supported by the stock player, but can be slow got for larger files.

I love frankish's "blue ginger bread thin circle mod" theme.

Set cpu is amazing for roms with over clock (eg. flb and jj) (691 without any reboots)

tubemate us good for downloading youtube videos at a preferred resolution (480x270)

Metal detector its accurate and fun, especially when you can make it insult apple.

vm heap tool for adjusting your heap size (mines 48)

The quadrant, neocore and linpack apps for benchmarking your phones speed.

Wheres my droid is a great app which makes your device ring its loudest (even on silent) when a predefined text is sent to it.

Please update your list as people add apps as replies to save others having to navigate too far.
