Killer apps for Android?
 
Since there's an iPhone version, I figured I'd start a Droid version. After being handcuffed by Sprint's SERO plan for the past two years, I finally ordered my LG Optimus S last night. It'll be here in about 24 hours. So, what toys should I play with when it arrives?

I own a Nexus and this thread could help.

For starters, GTasks. Will synch your tasks with your Gmail account.
TimeMobile. RadioTime, make sure you are on wifi or have good data plan.

There is an app called "My Collection Pro" and it scans your DVD/Blu-Ray/Video game UPC codes and creates a digital catalog that you can keep track of.

Hungry Shark is a good game, as is Spaghetti and Marshmallows

Yeah you have to do it with an SD card though.

This is all according to my friend who has it. I haven't got an Android phone yet.
