[REF]Must Have apps....
At first big thnx to Superace69 for this...
And me too
..For posting this....
This is a list of recommended apps to make your Android experience an awesome one.
The apps that work under the hood like the rom and ram script are for Galaxy FIT. Afterwards, everything else works for every phone.
I'll be adding apps over time so keep on coming back and checking!
I feel like the FIT has a lot of apps and themes to choose from. Here is a list of the apps I believe are epicly awesome.
What's a phone without space and some right app management? For that, I recommend s2e. It moves all the Dalvik Cache to the SD card. When I first installed it, it freed up 92MB of internal memory that I didn't knew what getting used up.
A pretty good ram manager for any phone would be Ram Manager. It keeps your phone running smoothly and worry free.
For backups and more app management, I highly recommend Titanium Backup. One of the best apps out there hands down. You can batch move all your apps to SD, back up all your apps and system data or just apps if you like. Its so epic, it even backs up all the data on a game. Since I like to switch things a lot on my phone, I use a lot of back ups and Titanium always has me covered.

Now for themes; I highly recommend the ICS theme from AChep. This theme completely spices up your phone to the newest and fancy ICS. It changes up everything. Its the BEST ICS theme you'll find out there.

For some really awesome ICS live wallpapers, here are some epic ones;

And Ice Cream Sandwich Live WP: https://market.android.com/details?i...BhcGVyLnBybyJd
The second one is a paid app but its really worth the money.
Anyway if you want more kickass themes, check out this post! They rock
Afterwards, I present to you the awesome Roboto Font. They new font looks really cool and a different font gives a whole new feel to your phone. To install it, you must first install Font Changer, extract the font and put it in the Font Changer folder in the SD.

Next up is an awesome add-on. It gives your status bar a whole new makeover with the ICS style. This add-on also hooks up your phone with the ICS transitions. In my case they're really fast and work wonderfully. Another epic piece of work from CM7.2's dev.

To mess with your system files or just check out whats inside your SD, I recommend Root explorer or ES file explorer. Whichever one fits your taste.
Here's another ICS look changer! Themes your lock screen to the ICS style! Just flash it and everything will be fine.

Now if you want to get rid of all of those ads (Or mostly) I present to you AdFree. This app blocks out most ads from getting to your device.
Now, what's an FIT with a whole bunch of customization but still with the same old bootanimation? Here's where this thread comes in handy; its one of the largest repositories of bootanimations. Pick one that suits your taste and enjoy!
If you like cloud storage; DropBox is what I recommend. The simple UI makes everything really easy to use. If you don't feel like going through the hassle of connecting your phone via USB just to pass a simple file, you can always DropBox it through your PC and download it to your phone. (Lazy, I know )
Here's the best notepad ever. The only issue I have with it is that you can't set it as a sticky note widget. But besides that, it does EVERYTHING you can possibly think of.
The stock gallery app is kind of slow and sluggish sometimes so here's a little something to speed up your picture viewing experience.

Need some help in math class? Here's a scientific calculator to make things a little easier!
Now for web browsing... There's a whole bunch of browsers out there and I can honestly say I've tried them all except one I didn't download because I had the mini version already. Turns out that one that I didn't try was actually the best one. I'm talking about Opera. Opera is smooth, slick and speedy as hell. Its got decent features to use. If you want a max customizable browser, go for Dolphin HD.

Dolphin HD: https://market.android.com/details?i...nlCcm93c2VyIl0
A new browser has been discovered. Its fast and the UI looks really good. Its called Nineski Browser.
For music, I really like Power AMP. The UI is very cool and it has a couple of themes you can use to switch it up a bit. The equalizer is pretty good too and it has some customization that could change up the way you listen to music on your phone. It offers a 15 day trial and then you have to buy the app. Its another one thats really worth the money.

If you like to keep an eye on what your usage is, whether its data, calls or sms; Traffic counter is the one for you. It counts every single MB of data that enters or exits your phone and is pretty accurate.

Here's another counter. This one details everything you can possibly know about your battery!

Now this next one will make your life A LOT easier. This next app can make a widget of almost ANYTHING you can think of in your phone. Its called Widgetsoid and it works wonders.
There are a lot of people having the "Insufficient storage available" problem when downloading apps through market, Here's a fix:
Here is another beastly app that EVERY ROOT/CUSTOM ROM USER MUST HAVE.Which ever one fits you. Point is, you need to have it.
I never thought I'd put this app in here because of all the flaws but they finally fixed it. Facebook 1.8.0. The update is completely in sync with the web version and everything just simply works wonderfully.
And well, if Facebook doesn't work for you, here's a complete (and better in my opinion) replacement!
This next app speeds up the reading and writing speed of your SD card for less waiting time. If you're like me that waits an eternity for the SD to get scanned at boot, wait no more and install this!
If you want a complete iPhone look, check out this thread!: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post21384446
This next app fakes a call to get you out of those weird and awkward situations!
Want to know how fast data is transferring on your phone? This widget is for you!
If your phone gets lost or stolen, you can lock it or track it simply by texting it!
Here's a little something to make your phone look bigger! Really works and looks cool. Some apps won't adjust to the size though.
I personally like having a loud phone. But since our FIT's speaker is a little too low, I fix that up with Volume+. Works wonders. There's a free and paid version. The paid lets you set your volume higher. Here's the link:
This next one is a file manager. But I mostly use it to make back up apks of apps. Its Astro. If my friend wants an app I have, I just back it up and bluetooth it to him. Simple =D
This next one is one I found out about recently since I didn't like the dialer of a rom I was using. Afterwards, it became my replacement dialer for every rom I use xD. Here's exDialer. Has some pretty cool themes too.
Since I'm a musician, a tuner is really important. This one always has my back. I'm talking about gStrings
The only calculator you'll ever need in ALL of Android.
System Tuner Pro might be a paid app, but there's no other task manager like it. Highly recommend it.

The next one is a complete replacement for the FaceBook chat. I honestly like it better than the normal chat on the desktop website too xD. Here's Go chat!
Well, this about sums up the epic apps on my phone for now. If you have any other recommendations, please post it in the comments and tell us why you like it!
Last but not the least..
I won't be responsible for any problem you may face...
