PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, today I finally joined the ranks of millions and millions of Android users, meaning I now have access to three of the major mobile platforms (Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7). I am, however, a complete Android noob, and I'm suspecting there will be many more Android noobs in the years to come - among OSNews readers as well. Hence, I figured this might be as good a time as any for an OSNews Asks item: Android all the things! Okay, technically that's not a question, but these are: what are the best Android applications? The most useful widgets? The most beautiful themes? Should you root your Android device? Is there any reason to add the Amazon App Store? Are there any tweaks to improve the Android experience? And so on.

I am new to the Android world too. After 3 days of use these are some of my preferable:
1. File manager by Rhythm Software
2. Advanced task killer by Rechild
3. WiFi Manager, WiFi Analyzer, WiFinder - everyone of them has something unique
4. NetCounter
5. Overlook
6. Opera Mini
7. Android Terminal Emulator
8. Easy Uninstaller
9. Disk Usage
10. VuDroidPlus - Djvu reader
11. KWS - web server
12. ConnectBot - SSH client
13. Samba File Sharing
14. AndFTP
15. Dr.WebLite
16. RealCalc
17. Chess Free and DroidFish
18. Mobo Player for viedo, still to find a music player that matches my taste.

Tried ADWLauncher but I like more the default SE launcher on my Xperia.
Tried Aptoide but could not choose something from his offerings.
I expect to find more in the future and I am planning
to root my phone. The default user permissions are too limited for my taste.
