    With 10000 apps what are the essential apps you simply can't live without.

    I have lots but not many I would describe as ' killer apps'

    Maybe onetapdial is something I find genuienly useful but it's not exactly a killer.

    Please let me know as there as so many apps I just don't know where to look.

    My list
    Penytel
    Flickfishing

    Then I struggle

    The apps I use daily:

    SaiSuke - cluttered looking app, but till SmartTime or RTM gets both month-view calendar and duplicate/copy&paste, SaiSuke's still very necessary.

    Facebook

    RTM

    Splashmoney

    Wisdom English <-> Japanese dictionary

    Tranquil Alarm

    Chess With Friends

    Fastlane

    Other apps that I wouldn't want to do without:

    Beejive

    Maildash

    Photogene

    Funambol & Mobyko

    m-box Mail

    American Heritage Fourth Edition

    Japanese

    iEijiro

    This should be made a sticky

    For me my essential apps are:

    ??'

    Sorry I really don't have any, there is nothing I can't live without.

    The supplied features are what I use most of the time and for me the apps have been a let down -so far.
