    I've got a shit ton of music on one of my sd cards so the speaker boost app is a good addition too.
    I plug it into my tv speakers and without it it sounds like shit

    I gotta long ass wire that plugs into the headset on my phone and on the other end is the red and yellow wires and they plug into my speakers on my surround sound.
    It looks ghetto but it works

    Don't listen to these poor iPhone fools. They truly don't know shit. Their outdated and boring-ass platform doesn't even have a back-button, or widgets.
    Here are some good apps for you.

    AlarmDroid - Fantastic alarm clock. Has cool stuff like speaking clock saying the date and the weather, flip your phone around and it goes snoozing.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.splunchy.android.alarmclock

    Evernote - Great on every platform
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evernote

    SwipePad - Very cool secondary menu that you can access from anywhere
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.conduction.swipepad.android

    Music Folder Player - I use this to listen to the Howard Stern Show and other radio shows and audiobooks
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.zorillasoft.musicfolderplayer

    Brilliant Quotes & Quotations - Great widget that gives me a cool quote every day
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lammar.quotes

    Sygic - Offline navigation. Regular updates and cheap. Uses maps from TomTom, which are the best out there. Got the entire USA for 20 bucks and entire Europe for 30.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sygic.aura

    Tripadvisor - Good app for vacation. Check out their cityguides, they're free and great! No data needed.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tripadvisor.tripadvisor

    Power Toggles - Great widget to switch things on and off like wifi, data, flashlight, auto rotation etc.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.painless.pc

    MX player - Video player that handles everything.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mxtech.videoplayer.ad

    HD Widgets - Very nice looking weather clock widgets.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cloudtv.hdwidgets

    Games:

    Canabalt HD - Very addictive in its simplicity.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fishnoodle.canabalt

    Reckless Getaway - Bad-ass racing/escape/destruction game. Beautiful graphics.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.polarbit.Getaway

    Osmos HD - Spaced-out puzzle game
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hemispheregames.osmos

    Sonic CD - Classic Sonic from the '90's
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sega.soniccd

    Of course there are the obvious ones like Gmail, Maps, Youtube and Google Calendar.

    I always get the paid versions so I don't get ads.
