So I finally got with the times and ordered me an Android phone with my new every two. It's a "Bill Proof" G'zone Commando. Should be here tomorrow.
What cool apps do I want, and what do they do?
What apps do I NEED and why?
What settings should I change on the phone to improve it's function and battery life?

android = gay
Apple Iphone = awesomeness.
Any other phone = POS.

I currently have an HTC Thunderbolt.
Have extended battery because default battery = FAIL! With extended I can go a full day and a half before killing the battery.
I have not paid for any apps yet. Just about everything is free.
Make sure you have a google account and you know it's password. IE Gmail account.
I use Advanced Task Killer (free) - To kill apps that need killing. Some things don't close on their own. It scans every 1/2 hour or so.
GPS essentials (free) - both GPS and it has a neat Compass with a level. Also tells you how fast you are going.
WIFI analyzer (free) - Tells you what is out there and what channel it's on.
Google Maps (free) - W/Navigation. Only pitfall is when there is no service you can't change your route.
Barcode Scanner. (free) - Self Explanatory.
Shazam (free) - listens to music in the background and gives you the Title / Artist.
Amazon App Store (free) - One free pay app per day. Works just like Android Market.
Angry Birds (free) - Time waster and battery eater.
Stupid Zombies (free) - See Angry Birds
Duck Hunt (free) - Port From Nintendo Duck Hunt.
If you have questions. Just Google them.
Biggest complaint. Voice Dial does not work very well.
