    And that's it really, I mostly just use my tablet these days to watch a couple episodes of Futurama at bed time, and occasionally if I need to sit and wait for someone in the car I use Kindle to read a little.

    Ebay - its gotten better. Now if only ppl would post in the right sections.
    Whatsapp - world wide sms
    AndroIRC - IRC on the go.

    Chrome and apps. Sync is king!
    InSSIDer - finding wifi

    probably use facebook more than anything.
    lots of the ones mentioned already here, Hotukdeals, es file explorer, kindle, VLC

    excellent little tool for network discovery and fast ip cataloguing is Fing
    We're only here for the Banter - The Luvvies - Chewin' The Fat

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which apps should every Android user have?

    Things like keyboards, cameras etc are obviously subjective but my current main apps would be...

    TouchPal X keyboard
    Podcast Addict
    Textra for SMS
    MX Player media player
    Chrome browser (other Google apps like Maps etc are a given ofc)
    AppRemover
    Camera ZOOM FX
    Dropbox
    Fancy Widgets
    Falcon Pro for Twitter
    gReader for RSS
    QuickPic image viewer
    Screebl Lite screen orientation sensor
    TuneIn Radio
    ES File Explorer file manager

    Hope one or two of those will be of use to someone.

    Local public transport app
    VLC player

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which apps should every Android user have?

    Mediamonkey is a great music player. Especially good if you use mediamonkey on PC as it links together seamlessly.
    I couldn't live without swiftkey, and the more you use it, the better it gets with predictions. It is worth the cost (especially when on sale), and now they've merged the phone and tablet version, it works well across any device you have.
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which apps should every Android user have?

    I don't think there's anything that every user should have. Most Android devices come with the basic stuff, and user needs vary a lot.

    One app I'd suggest is Amazon Appstore, because most users can find an occasionally attractive Free App of the Day.
