1.  Google Maps Navigation for Android phones:

3. AppBrain Market Sync:

If you use Android, unfortunately there is no way you can download your apps on the PC and transfer them later to your Android phone. Enters AppBrain Market Sync to your rescue! This app is solution to this issue as it lets you do the forbidden act. By help of AppBrain you can send your Apps (that you downloaded on the PC) to the Android phone. Isn’t that too cool for an App that is available for Free?

4. Android Task Manager:

If you come from a bit of a hardcore PC background, you’ll find Android’s lack of a blue X to close apps a bit of a worry. Which is why you need a good manual override tool to shut any persistent apps. It may help you save battery life, but most important is the feeling of control and empowerment you get from one-click closing apps. For this purpose, download this Task Manager app form the Android Market. This will make the task of closing any running app that you don’t need to run anymore very easy and simple.

5. Skyfire 2.0:

The USP of the Skyfire browser is that it supports Flash content, popping up a little window when it detects something like an embedded YouTube video. The actual Flash business is handled by Skyfire’s server, which does all the computery stuff – then sends the file to your handset.
