Default Anyone have a apps to recommend for Android OS?

Was wondering if anyone has any interesting apps that they use?

Right now i am using Pandora , Netflix, Last Fm, Mx player , Skype and the app for Digitally Imported Radio

I found a great file manager its called ES File Explorer

It has a built in media player that lets me stream music from my network drive

I also use Pandora, Digitally Imported (which I think I originally learned about from you )and MX Player. In addition, I use Tapatalk on both my tablet and my phone for browsing here and at Head-Fi when I am not sitting at the computer.

And for my podcasts, I now use Podkicker which means I rarely have to even start up iTunes anymore.

Also, I check Huffington Post on a daily basis, so it's good to have it available on my phone and tablet.

Folder Organiser is a pretty good app, if you like swapping out app icons, making proper app folders and so forth.

For podcasts I prefer BeyondPod, don't like anything to do with iTunes and most other flashier podcast managers just don't have the flexibility or features that BeyondPod has. I prefer to load RSS feeds, use google reader and the sort. Also like how its able to generate playlists from newly downloaded podcasts that I can use in other music apps like Power Amp.

Flipboard is also nice, but a little too basic at the moment, still I use it to just flip through semi interesting blogs and such when bored.

Comic Rack, like the way it handles larger collections.

Do it tomorrow, is a nice and simple reminder app, that you can manage tasks. You basically have a list of stuff to do, and you can as the name implies swipe it off to do it tomorrow :P Nothing else, has a nice visual style and its free, but you pay for widgets if you want them.

Finally Gentle Alarm, because I seriously wake up from the slightest of noises and most alarm clocks just give me a heart attack in the morning :P This allows me to gently set a whole folder for randomized music to wake up to, which slowly, or quickly increases the volume and further more you can have it only stop if you answer simple multiplication questions which aren't always so easy to answer from a short night of sleep.

I can recommend King soft Office - a very able free office app.

Is tapatalk free? I need something better than Chrome for forums.

Well, I have no experience with that one....my tablet is still running ICS, and thast would only be available to someone running Jellybean, right?.

SwiftKey has been wonderful for me, on the Tab with ICS,and on Gingerbread with the SGP 5.0 and my former Motorola Atrix.
