What are your must-have Android Apps?

Thanks to the HTC One V, I’m now back to being an authentic Android fan boy. Even before I got the new phone, I was already thinking of the first set of apps that must definitely go into it.

These apps enable me to get things done with my Android phone, from managing my email, updating my social networking sites, getting my news and RSS fix, organizing appointments and to-do lists, etc.

So what are these apps that I find essential? Check out the list below:

Springpad – it’s an online notebook storage service that allows you to save not just notes, but photos, videos, links and to-do lists.

WordPress – let’s you manage your WordPress-powered blogs while on the go

Tumblr – let’s you manage your Tumblr blogs.

GTasks – no frills management of your to-do lists using Google Tasks

ConvertPad – Swiss-knife of converting units of measurement

Google Reader – for my daily RSS fix while on the go

3G Watchdog – measures how much bandwidth you consume on a set time period. Useful for those who are on a per-volume data plan

Juice Defender – a power/battery management app that lets you squeeze the most out of your battery.

MMDA – if you’re living in Metro Manila, this one is a must-have even if it’s not 100% accurate.

The following apps get installed once I’m happy with the initial personalization of my Android phone. Depending on your carrier and mobile phone maker, some of the apps below may already come pre-installed on your device.

  • Instagram
  • Dropbox
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Foursquare
  • Skype
  • Yahoo! Messenger
  • Live Messenger

These apps jive with my work flow and personal preferences, feel free to try each of the apps if you haven’t yet. I’m pretty sure you would a list of your own. Please do share them or an app or two from your list.
