bombmaster, I've got a Voice Recorder stock app on my EVO. Tests okay so far.

Pandora - music player
Shazam - detects music and gives you the name of the band
Advanced Task killer
Google Sky Map - scan the stars and learn about them
Google Goggles - scan foreign text and it translates it
Astro - file manager
FxCamera - camera special effects
Speed Test - download speed test
TapaTalk - forum software that allows pic upload to forum
Tricorder - just like in Star Trek all kinds of readings in your location
Drop Box - cloud file sharing and backup
Scanner Radio Pro - radio scanner for cops. ATC, etc
Lookout - is a great anti-virus program for your phone.
Google Earth - great for 'scouting' terrain while in the field but it sucked up like 20 megs on my phone. Seemed to slow it down so I uninstalled it.
Barcode Scanner - scans barcodes and those "squigley" square codes on everything using the phone's camera. It will give expanded product info and link to the web for even more info.
DroidLight - Flashlight app great in scorpion and snake country

"A Level" - turns it into a clinometer... great for determining shot angle for ballistic application (wish this function was integrated into the tricorder app)

"Ballistics"

"RealCalc" - RPN scientific calculator

"Mortgage Basic"

"Open GPS Tracker"

"Tricorder"

"Advanced Task Killer" - auto kill apps to extend battery life

"Barcode Scanner"

"FlightTools - E6B"

wifi analyzer- cool scanner to see tons of data about wireless networks in your area.

Convert Anything- pretty good converter.

sleep time- turns your music player off while you drift off to sleep. (love this app)

youtube ripper- save youtube videos!

ring droid- to make your own ringtones and sms tones.

where- really awesome app for finding anything anywhere.

Anybody using setcpu? Im wondering how much battery life I can gain by underclocking...

So far I am loving superuser and barnacle.

I love that I can get rid of the verizon/amazon/bb crap with simple linux commandline using adb! Now I just need a terminal emulator app so I can do it right from the phone...

The kernel does a pretty good job of clocking down to 250MHz by default (well, not sure about your phones speed) so you wont gain much by underclocking unless you limit your maximum speed to 250MHz or so. However...you should try setcpu if you have root access. My Moto Droid will run at 1100MHz all day long, nice option to have if you need some speed.

Nice.. I am rooted, on a droid2. Don't have specifics on clock speed but I bet it could run pretty fast... still pretty new to the root droid world, but I love it so far...

Just turn the screen off and your apps keep running. You should also set a security code on your phone since the police will attempt to go through it should get get arrested, likely deleting any recording you made in the process.

This can save quite a bit and also get more speed out of your phone when you need it. You will need a rom that supports it though.
