Last October I made the jump from a WinMo phone into the Android world. I did this because WinMo wasn't supported by my company, and I really didn't want an apple. I spent a while researching on what phone I wanted and settled on the HTC Desire HD (I've been a fan of HTC for a few years now, and I love it almost as much as my Nokia from years ago, and my Motorola IDEN style phones. )

This isn't about the phone - I wanted to give a quick list of Apps I've been using on the phone that I use - spread the word you know.

Notes: These are in no particular order - yet.
