Just found this list of techcrunch's top 10 favourite applications to download from the Android Market:

Quote:
1. imeem Mobile: It’s a jukebox in your pocket, and the progressive download means that your song doesn’t skip when you go into an elevator, ’nuff said.


2. ShopSavvy: From Big in Japan, this turns your phone into a barcode scanner and then gives you price comparisons both online and in nearby retail stores. In my tests, the product database is good for household items, but can stumble with obscure products. But this is a killer app once the product database becomes more comprehensive. (Also try CompareEverywhere, which does the same thing).


3. Pac-Man: The original arcade game from Namco. Free on the Android (it costs $7.99 on the iPhone). The rollerball is an excellent joystick.


4. BreadCrumbz: You can leave photo and voice marker breadcrumbz along any route that others can then follow later on. Ties into the phone’s GPS, maps, camera, and microphone.


5. Wikitude: A travel guide that pulls up information from Wikipedia about nearby locations and puts them on a map, along with photos from Panoramio. Really useful geo-mashup.


6. Shazam: Put the phone up to a radio or speaker playing a song and Shazam will tell you the name and the artist, just like the iPhone app.


7. SplashPlay: Teaches you how to play the guitar by playing music and showing a fret board that you can play on the screen in sync with the music. The app is marketing for a similar tutorial device you can buy for your guitar, but it really teaches you how to play.


8. iSkoot for Skype: Lets you use your Skype account to IM your contacts, make Skype calls over the Internet, and uses the phone for SkypeOut calls (this is one of the apps that was taken down, but should go up again. Update: It’s available now)


9. MyCloset: This one’s more for the ladies, but a very nicely done app. You take apicture of every article of clothes in your closet, categorize them (top, bottom, shoes, accessories, etc.), select months when they can be worn, and then you can mix and match to plan out your outfits. The only thing it needs is some way to note weather a piece of clothing is clean or not.


10. Cab4Me Light: A simple app that gives you phone numbers of cab companies based on where you are.
What are your favourite apps you'd recommend to download?

Apps you download from the market will be installed on your handset memory, there's nothing you can do about that.

But it seems app downloads from unofficial sources can be stored on the SD card.

Here's a snippet from a post on HowardForums:

Quote:
I've seen conflicting reports within reviews and just plain speculation, so here is the real deal. I've been playing with the G1 for a week now and it took me a good day to figure out the logic...

Any apps you download from the Market will automatically (at least in this beta version of the market) be saved in the G1 device memory. There is currently no option to save it otherwise, it just goes there.

However, if you download .apk app from any url, once the dl has completed and you tap on it in the drop down notification pane it will inform you that the application can only be installed to the sd card. Voila!

So for instance you would prefer to dl some market app to your sd just dl it directly from the developers website as opposed to the market. There is a preference in applications settings that you must check to allow this first!

There is currently no file manager, but once someone develops one you could also just copy the apps directly to a sd card and install them from there.

Hope this sheds more light on the misconception.

@ Andor
I know your last post was 11/6/08 I know there are several types of file managers now, Do you think it is possible to copy and paste or cut and paste from interal memory to sd card. Or should I stick to downloading str8 from the Dev site. Also can you download the unofficial apps str8 to your phone like the market or would your PC to need to be involved.

@ Andor

If you don't mind getting your hands dirty (e.g. can use adb and have root, etc) it's not that complicated to move all the apps to the SD card and replace the default app directory with a symlink.

See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=468959.

MagicWords is one of the most convenient translation and search apps! It runs completely in background, and detects every copy to clipboard. A small button appears and fades away in few seconds if not used. If you click it, you get the following actions to do with the copied text:
- translate to different language and save the translation back in clipboard
- search Google or Wikipedia
- call or SMS phone
- write an e-mail to the copied address
- show the copied street address on map
