Current Music:Florence And The Machine - Dog Days Are Over
A list of all the apps currently running on my phone, from appbrain.

Of these, first of all, I highly recommend rooting your phone. (A quick google with the model of your phone of choice should help you out with guides.)
With the processor speeds that are out these days, battery life drains QUICK and it's no fun having to charge every eight hours. With root, you can get something like SetCPU and rank speed priorities for when you're actually USING the phone, i.e. the screen's turned off.
Once your phone is rooted, I also recommend Adfree Android and Titanium Backup.

OK, if you don't want to root your phone or you just want more recommendations, I also highly recommend JuiceDefender (free) and its addon, UltimateJuice.
Jorte is a great calendar.
SMSBackup+ if you're as neurotic as me.
If you use itunes, iSyncr and iSyncr WiFi are awesome.
WatchDog Task Manager (NOT TASK KILLER) will alert you if any of your apps is sucking up a ton of CPU time.
SwiftKey is bar none, the best predictive keyboard I've ever seen, AND it adapts to your style of texting.
And last but not least, MultiIconWidget for getting shortcuts to all those apps onto your home page.

Tried out Jorte. I have 3 other peoples calendars I keep track of, and the HTC calendar keeps the color associated with everyone. Jorte just threw them all together, so I uninstalled. Not sure about their print-page font, either. Functionality was very nice though.
