My top choices:

WiFi Analyzer
Cyrket Link
Android Market Link (Phones Only!)

Official description:
Turns your android phone into a Wi-Fi analyzer!!
Shows the Wi-Fi channels around you. Helps you to find a less crowded channel for your wireless router.

My Review:
This is one hell of a WiFi scanner with some very useful functions. You can have a detailed look at the local hotspots' strength and channel as well as allowing you look at channel saturation, indicating better channels for your router to be on. Another very useful function is the ability to lock on to a hotspot and use your phone as a kind of wifi metal detector, beeping to indicate strength/location to the router. This is particularly useful if you use open networks and you want to get a better signal. All in all, I call this a must have tool. Oh, and it's free with some ads.

OS Monitor
Cyrket Link
Android Market Link (Phones Only!)

Official description:
OSMonitor let you monitor android system.

*Process
*Interface
*Network (need Map)
*Misc
*Message

My Review:
The description for this is woefully inadequate to the power it possesses. Try to imagine it as task manager on steroids. It shows you a mass of information about every process running, what local network interfaces are doing, what TCP/IP connections are being made and what messages are being reported from the main OS system. This is heavily a geek tool and not to be used by people who don't want to get involved in the guts of the phone OS, but it is incredibly useful for developers and hobbyists. This one's free and has no ads.

It's...


THE OHMYHEAD'S (WITH NO ACCESS AT THE MOMENT TO PHOTOSHOP HENCE THE CRAPPY GRAPHIC) ANDROID APP POST #1!!!

Heeeeey! Hooooo! Heeeeey! Hoooooo!

*cough*

Ok, I'm back. Let's get to it. (All of the following are FREE.)

Screebl Lite: I haven't had this long enough to know if it saves battery life or not, but it is designed to know when the phone is laying flat. When it is not flat, the screen will stay active (on). So I've set my Screen time-out to 15 seconds. So now my screen is never on more than it needs to be. I believe Screebl was designed for another purpose, but who cares about dat! :D This runs in the whatever bar up top and glows when the phone is held in such a way as to keep it on.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.keyes.screebl.lite

Fast Call: Launching this brings up the full alphabet. One click away from your intended contact, no more scrolling through "People" or typing in "Search People". This holds one of the 4 coveted spots on my main screen.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/pl.skylupus.android.fastcall

Handcent SMS: This is a wickedly customizable texting client. Miles cooler than the stock. It also holds one of my top spots on the home screen.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.handcent.nextsms

Laputa Book Reader: This library on your hip sports access to Blazer online books (among many other sources). The selection is AMAZING. All the Dune books, Resident Evil, Dexter, etc. are available, all free, using Laputa. Laputa rides up front as well. Oh, and the stock Calendar app rounds out the big 4. :)

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.reader.books.laputa.ui

Multicon: Speaking of space on your screens, need more? The Multicon widget condenses icons. (What's a widget?, asks the iPhone user. Don't worry about it. lol) You could technically have 64 icons on one screen using this. But mostly, it's for placing 4 apps in the same space as 1. There are other apps that do this, but this one is fully functional and FREE.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.h9kdroid.multicon

Turtle Photoframe: With 7 screens on my Incredible, I sometimes have trouble filling them all up with useful stuff. So for one of my screens, I park a Turtle Photoframe. It takes up the entire screen (smaller sizes available) and shows photos from any folder I specify. You can set it to do a slideshow and for how long each pic shows, or set that to zero and touch the screen to change the pic.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/net.greenturtles.photoframe

Alarm Klock and Better Alarm Clock are both good alarm clocks with the ability to create multiple, repeating alarms as well as choose any sound you wish for the alarm. Alarm Klock wins for me because...well, just because. Try them out and see how you feel about it.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.angrydoughnuts.android.alarmclock
http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.betterandroid.deskclock

Bump: Got a mouthy, smug bastard of a friend with an iPhone? Still want to give him your contact info easily? Load up Bump and touch his wretched device with your awesome device and your contact info will transfer right on over. (Then, dip your phone in disinfectant and call your carrier to have your number changed.)

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.bumptech.bumpga

Desktop Visualizer: Don't like the stock icon for the Flashlight App? With Desktop Visualizer, you can use that photo of you in college that time you drank too much Jager and put a flashlight in your butt to launch your flashlight app!

http://www.appbrain.com/app/jp.co.bii.android.app.dskvzr

Retro Camera: This app sports 4 different cameras, each providing pretty cool effects, or as the description says, "take delicioius old-school pics your friends will drool over".

http://www.appbrain.com/app/org.urbian.android.tools.vintagecam

Camera 360: A confusing app, it does have "scenery mode" which includes a few masks you can inject your photos into. A little futzing around and I bet we can make us some better masks for this. The painting guy one puts your shot on his canvas and converts the photo into what looks like a painting. Cool!

http://www.appbrain.com/app/vStudio.Android.GPhoto

PhotoFunia: Another app with masks, there are a lot more on this one. Putting your shot on a large billboard with guys posting it up there is a favorite of mine. LOTS more here. Applies these effects to existing photos as well.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.photofunia.android

SpyShot: Are a sneaky old perv? Is someone showing their panties on the bus or at church? Want to keep that vision alive forever? Launch SpyShot. It will turn off your camera's shutter sound and flash as well as totally blank your screen. You need only touch the screen to take the photo. Naughty, naughty, naughty, you filthy old sumka! The size and quality of the pics kinda suck, but eh, it's free.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.jiveturducken.spycam

Mobisle Notes: There are lots of To Do apps and notes and lists, etc., but I like this one best. It creates checkboxed lists as well as straight text notes. Keep bus routes, recipes, To Do lists, ideas for what to post later in the BBA Forums, whatever. There is a backup utility included. This one does not have the ability to attach photos to your notes. A neat idea but I find it unnecessary.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/mobisle.mobisleNotesADC

Safe Neighborhood: Bored? Want to fuh-REAK OUT when you find out how many child molesters live within a mile of your home and your kids? This app is for you. Mugshots included! Dale?? Billy??? Mrs. Bucharelli!!! OMG.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.safeneighborhood

Shazam: Ya know how every once in a while you hear a song playing in a store or at a bar and you can't recall who sings it, or you want to know who does do you can run out and steal it? Launch this app and let it listen to the song for 15 seconds. It will tell you who it is, what album it's on, tour info, etc. 5 freebies a month! So far it hasn't been wrong for me. The app claims to be 80% accurate.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.shazam.android

And finally, for you musicians and musician wannabes...

Guitar Solo Lite: Learn to play the guitar! Or at least, learn how to play the beginning of Stairway to Heaven or 2112: Discovery on your phone.

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.codingcaveman.SoloTrial

xPiano: You know you want to learn to play that bitchin' keyboard part from Boston's "Smokin'"...on your phone. Amaze your drooling friends!

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.cyandroid.piano

Happy downloading/installing/uninstalling, my BBA bruthas and sistas!

p.s. I just saw this yesterday and had to have one. Cost me $19! Had to get it from the UK. D'oh! Not wild about the shape, either, but...man I have hat issues.

Got my hat! It's back on the main Google Store site (US). The Brits wouldn't sell me one. Wankers! lol

I also found an app I had seen and loved a few months back on an iPhone. Now in the Android Market...ZombieBooth!

http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.motionportrait.ZombieBooth



It doesn't just paste zombie effects on your face. It moans, it burps, it EATS! Animated awesomeness. Still shots can )obviously) be saved. FOr some reason, when I try to "share" the pics, it says this DEMO can only save. I bought the app, it doesn't appear to be a demo, sooooooo...glitch!?

Anyway, best $1.37 I ever spent. Everyone in my house couldn't wait to get zombified and then email the pics to their moms and girlfriends. lmao

Great free app...."Advanced Task Killer" it gives you the ability to kill unwanted apps that are running, even after you have closed them. Or those damn pesky ones that start on there own.

If this has already bee posted sorry I did not see it listed.

madmaz, first, great to see you! Or anyone here! It's been forever since I got an email notification from BBA. Second, it's pretty much established that if you are running Android 2.2 or higher, task killers are not needed, and in some instances, even make battery life worse.

Let me see if I can find the exact article I read that convinced me to live a taskiller-free Android life.

Well, I can't recall the exact one, but there are plenty out there, including this one.

Thanks for the Heads up Oh My Head....haha I made a funny, well kind of...the guys I work with uses it, but he does have an older Droid. Uninstall we go. I did get the ET sound board and the Full Metal Jacket one as well. The Suits at work would love the FMJ one, but I can see some of the skirts falling out of the chairs if I used that one.

EDIT:
The other reason I download the app is due to the fact that Droid X2 came with a Task Manager. And with the guys I work suggesting the ATK I said "what the harm"....
