There is nothing terrible about the native Web browser that ships with Android, but the Dolphin Browser HD does everything better. You can set up custom gestures, it syncs with Google bookmarks, and it supports a bunch of plug-ins. The ability to create tabs is worth the download all by itself.

Think of SnapPea as the iTunes for your Android Device. Install the software on your PC, tweak some phone settings, and from that point on you can use SnapPea to manage your music, photos, videos, and contacts from your desktop. From this interface, I was able to see six different contact entries for a single person and merge them into one with a few clicks. You can also side-load apps from your desktop, so that 15MB app download doesn't hit your data cap. This is the best way to get big files on and off your phone.

9. NewsRob : ( Free )

I have used Google Reader, but I have to say I prefer NewsRob for quickly scanning my RSS feeds. The interface is cleaner, and with a few quick clicks, I can send stories to my e-mail, Twitter account, EverNote, or even to Instapaper. NewsRob lets me scan 150 to 175 headlines on my 20-minute train ride to work. Maybe your information needs aren't quite as intense, but it is still the RSS reader to beat.

10. Google Voice : ( Free )

Sprint wanted to charge me $1.99 a month for visual voicemail, basically transcripts of my voice mail messages. But why pay when you can forward unanswered calls to Google Voice and get the same functionality for free. Open up the Google Voice and you can see a transcript of messages and play them back without dialing into voicemail. It can take a few minutes for the service to make a transcription, but being able to intelligently screen calls is worth the wait. 

Make cheap international calls with your Google number. Send free text messages. Place calls and send text messages showing your Google number. Listen to voicemail and read transcripts.
Currently only available in the US.

- You must open Google Voice at least once after upgrading to route calls.
- When using Google Voice for Android, both domestic and international calls are placed through a US-based Google Voice access number, and will use the standard minutes from your cell phone plan.
