    I won’t go to the trouble of a screengrab, but I’ll tell you the apps I use the most:

    – Steel – alternate browser based on built-in WebKit rendering engine
    – Astrid – todo/task manager
    – Twit2Go – Twitter client
    – aHome – alternate home screen manager
    – Any Cut – add direct call shortcuts on your home screen (among other things)
    – ConnectBot – ssh client
    – fIRC Chat – IRC client
    – Locale – generic situation/trigger framework
    – NightWatch – automatically turn your phone into a clock when you plug it in to charge at night
    – No Signal Alert – vibrates when you have 0 bars of cell reception
    – Ringdroid – visual ringtone editor
    – Useful Switchers – toggle everything
    – Wifi Tether for Root Users – what’s the point of having root if you don’t use it? 😉 (I have a dev phone)

    I was hoping this would be huge and I could see what apps everyone else had found useful. Are you kidding me that only 5 people added their pics?

    Yea Screengrabs are a pain. There are some new pictures of some guy comparing cupcake to the current firmware. Is kinda cool.

    Couldn’t be bothered getting screen grabs. My favourite apps are Gmote, Twidroid, Weather, ToggleWifi and a link to my google reader. Prefer Twidroid to Twit2Go for its photo uploading easiness, auto url shorteners and location button. Love controlling laptop plugged into HDTV via the Gmote – you have to try it and see (full mouse and keyboard control from you G1!). ToggleWifi notifies you when there is no WiFi available, you then press the notification to turn WiFi off. The button on your android desktop turns it back on again. Google reader link is perfect when I pop to the loo or jump on the bus.

    I can highly recommend http://www.androidandme.com as the top android/G1 blog I have found. Updated regularly and a terribly useful resource.

    Gina: copied you and got rid of the clock putting search in the centre instead.
