Default Android Apps worth picking up?

Have finally succumbed to the smartphone disease, so I can now spend my days stroking my phone, charging it up every 3 minutes and very occasionally using it to talk to people.

Despite my slight scorn, I can see the benefit of them, and i'm keen to see if there's any functionality i'm missing.

Already have navigation, translator and product scanny things sorted...so what else is worth downloading?

Not sure how much I will actually end up using it, but it is pretty cool. Ta!

Dictionary.com app.

Got it on both my BB and iPod.

I love dictionaries, so I have to have one on me at all times. I'd hate to hear a nice word and not be able to look it up on the spot.

It's a must-have :D

My other most-used apps are: Scrabble and BOSS pedal tester.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Good call. I have dictionary.com on my homepage gadgets at home and work, so makes sense to put it on the phone.

Does it do word of the day? I always enjoy playing the etymology game with wotd.

Yes it does! (You need internet for that, so I don't get it on my iPod, unless I'm on WiFi)
The iPod app downloads the entire dictionary onto your iPod, so you don't need to be online to use it, so if the world is doomed, volcanoes are erupting and tornadoes are ruining internet connection; YOU CAN STILL USE THE DICTIONARY.

It may be the same for Android.

Well that's good news. If that happened I might actually need to spell pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconisosis, provided I survived long enough to contract it.

Robo Defense... this game has given me hours of slight amusement to break up monotony.

As far as useful apps... yeah I got nothing.
