What are the "must have" (top, best, most useful) applications?
 
Hi!!

since i got my n900, i frequently ask people in this forum for apps in example.

i made this thread to gather some information about the important and "must have" apps for N900.

thanks.

1) Extra protocols plugin for gaim, yahoo, msn etc.
2) Google voice
3) FreeOffice
4) 2G/3G mode applet
5) Flashlight applet
6) Abiword
7) Conboy (or any other note app)
8) Simple brightness applet
9) stopwatch
10) Twitter plugin for conversation

If you are a bit geeky -
1) Easydebian
2) Openssh server and client

A few of my favorites:

1) SES (System Event Scheduler)
2) FM Radio
3) Countdown Desktop Widget (My wife is pregnant, so helps keep track of time remaining 'til the big day)
4) Load Applet

Where can I get #1? I heavily use AIM messenger and I want something solid, yet fluid enough to work well integrated and won't danger my phone.

If you don't have an unlimited data plane like t-mobile. I'd say Dataplan Monitor is a must.

fmms if people like sending you mms

for anime watchers/ and media heads with rare formats: mplayer/sib/Extra Decoders Support

I was on a Sidekick unlimited data/text. Now I'm on their T-Mobile Smartphone plan, unlimited data/text. Bring it! what programs do I need?

-Conversations Inbox Desktop Widget (technically not an app though)
-AlmostTI Graphing Calc
-rootsh (only if you know what you're doing...)
-Flashlight
-Cpumem-applet (or load applet if you want to easily screenshot and sreencast)

Re: what are must have apps for n900?
 
If you frequently use X-Term, then Rootsh is the first must-have you'll need.

If you like modding your N900 (e.g. changing LED colours, battery icons, etc...) then OpenSSH will be useful.

If you want to play with your N900, VGBA and ScummVM should be your first choices.

And, of course, some utilities you'll find helpful:
-Flashlight
-Cpumem-applet
-Leafpad
-Copernicium (for Chemistry)
-OMWeather
-Maep
