1. Gmail will be built in im sure
1. Google Maps

Is there a google Docs app available?

I think im also going to look for some sort of service to access my music library through an app instead of loading it on the droid.

A useful craiglist application would be awesome to.

@Droid Motorola,
I'll mention a few to get this thread going:

Pandora is pretty cool music streamer. Just typed in a song and every song it played after that was a song I enjoy. I didn't have time to DL music to my phone yet, so I appreciated this when I was at the gym.

Google Sky Map just rocks. Hold the phone up to the sky, and you'll know exactly what you're looking at. Also a great way to flaunt your phone.

Metal Detector. It's exactly that. Do I need it? No, but it's still awesome.

I haven't used the Yellowbook app, but I'm sure that'll prove very useful.

Also haven't used Spoofapp, but an app designed at crank calling and is capable of changing your voice and number? Where were you when I was in middle school?

It's crazy that a phone is capable of doing that, but it's proven accurate for me. I doubt you'll find buried treasure on your next trip to the beach, but you'll def know if your friends are packing.

@YankeeDudeL,
Also in a similar vein is the Bubble app, which works as a level. And the Marine Compass is another app that no matter how you hold it gives you true directions.

@YankeeDudeL,
Shazam is a great replacement for the Dare's Song ID app. Hasn't failed me yet. Just hold it up to a speaker and it will tell you the song and who did it!

@The Chief,
Here's my list:

Google Sky -It happened that the leonid meteor shower was in full force the week I got my phone. Sat in the house where I was nice and warm, pointed the phone around until I spotted the constellation Leo, got my bearings and ran out into the near freezing night sky to watch the meteors.

The Weather Channel -Weather in multiple locals

NBA Game Time -I just use it to see what/when games are on, you can also catch scores.

Bubble -A level

Compass -Just like the name

Flashlight -Illuminates the screen with solid white circle. Drag your finger to make the circle larger (brighter) or smaller (dimmer).

Shazam -Finds that song on the radio, and tells you the name, and artist.

Wardrive -Logs the wifi networks as you drive around. Creates a map and tells you SSID and if it's an open connection or not.

If you like the compass, check out Marine Compass. You don't have to hold it level to get a true reading. Also there's LED Flashlight and MotoTorch that use the LED flash as a flashlight. LED Flashlight is $.99 and MotoTorch is free (but does have a donate version) and is also a widget.

@YankeeDudeL,
Some other's I've grown to love:

Meebo IM: Manage all your IMs in one location. I've become so self-important b/c of this app, lol.

OI Shopping List: Really convenient, and it's a reason to constantly pull out my phone in Wal-mart.

PS3 Friends: Can always see which of my friends are online if I'm away from my PS3. It'd be cooler if you could send and receive messages, but Sony doesn't allow it, as they have a phone that does that. There's also an XBox one, but I don't have a need for that.

Dizzler: A music streaming app that you just search for the song you want and it'll play it. They're working on being able to make a playlist from your PC and accessing it on your Droid.

Beer Counter: I've been needing this for years. Use it to anticipate your bar bill and see how much you really drank. Not to mention see if bartenders are padding your bill. Remembering to use it after beer #6, well, best of luck.

Droid Scan Beta: My g/f bought a fancy new printer that puts out photo quality prints. Also copies. Doesn't scan. Guess what? Droid does.
