hi,
ive not searched but guess there are many threads along these lines.
but with the v5 de-orangeated SF what would be the first/top 10 FREE apps bearing in mind the phone has been stripped.
i realise this is simple for many here, but i am totally new to android and apps too really.
i have a few games from when the market works, but the only real app i have is astrid.

Correct, there's an entire forum for this question. Search first and don't create a new thread.

the thread you link too is exactly the reason i started another relating to the bare bones SF.
there are about 9 posts since april in that thread, apps are changing all the time hence when i read around the net i get conflicting out of date info, that tells you of the best apps.
im asking for apps that peeps feel relevant to a bare bones phone that they feel are essential.

Well im on Pauls r5 but the apps which I would re-install should I flash would have to be:

Fancy Widget 1.3.0 (HTC Clock) Google for earlier HTC look version http://www.appbrain....oes.fancywidget
Framework V2 Desire Live Wallpaper (not really an app) Google
Launcher Pro (so easy and custom great ability) http://www.appbrain....m.fede.launcher
HomeSwitcher (Change the Launcher for your HomeScreen) http://www.appbrain....id.homeswitcher
Seesmic (Better than the std twitter client) http://www.appbrain....mic/com.seesmic
Smooth Calendar (nice clear Calendar widget) http://www.appbrain....ndroid.calendar
AudioManager (fantastic app to manage your differing volumes) http://www.appbrain....pps.audiowidget
Angry Birds (for the train home - for fun!) http://www.appbrain....ovio.angrybirds
GameBoid Lite & Rom Gripper (Play some GameBoy Adv. games on way home - for fun!) http://www.appbrain....roidemu.gbalite
Google Sky Map (works a treat - for fun!) http://www.appbrain....droid.stardroid
VM Heap Tool (take JVM upto 32MB for some smooth action) http://www.appbrain....o2k6.vmheaptool
Google Goggles (take pic of any image and Google works out search results) http://www.appbrain....oid.apps.unveil
Guage Battery Widget (works fantastic when transparant) http://www.appbrain....gaugebattwidget
Juice Defender & Plotter (see whats/when your killing your battery) *although I think this app itself does* http://www.appbrain....d.juicedefender & http://www.appbrain....id.juiceplotter
App Brain & Fast Web Installer (install stuff silently to your phone, direct from your big PC) http://www.appbrain....nkeys.apppusher & http://www.appbrain....odemonkeys.apps
DCSwitch (turn off the darn data connection) http://www.appbrain....rg.cohortor.dcs


Thats my few. Im looking for a decent Switch which replaces DCSwitch, rather like the standard but also includes the 'data' button.

Thanks! :)
