Just got an android phone, but what are some must have apps?
 
So I got myself a galaxy S captivate, and rooted it and installed cm7. 1. What are some apps I should have, and free or paid.

Galaxy s vibrant here, darkyROM 10.2.2, JL2 modem, semaphore 1.8 kernel, 1.2ghz


Opera mobile, AdFree, BLN, gmote, shazam, weathereye, wireless tether, speedtest, imdb, glympse, gas buddy, power amp, galaxy s unlock

Try voodoo control, although I'm not sure if it works on cm. improves sound quality big time

Trying remote potato for my android tablet. Install it on your PC and follow the instructions on how to access your media on your rig.

I like Handcent. Good replacement for stock text msg service

I like Locale, it sets profiles based on GPS location.
So I've got a profile for work, home and everything else right now.
Plus there are a lot of plugins which make it more powerful.

It works, though CM7 also has DSP Manager which offers similar controls.

Also if you flash FuguKernel on CM7, it provides Voodoo Colour support as well.

I'd strongly recommend flashing these scripts too: [CWM][SCRIPTS][TWEAKS] ThunderBolt! v2.1.6 - 12/5/11 [CFS + bolt_scripts changes!] - xda-developers Makes the phone much smoother IMO, though I have the GT-i9000M. Captivate should be similar hardware wise though.
