    OK, just got a new Droid Incredible. Now to start getting some apps for it :D

    What do you other monkeys use on your smart phones?

    I would like to keep them somewhat survival orientated, but they don't have to be.

    Just got my iPhone4 and found some dreadful apps but these are some that I like, and I think have an equivalent Android version.

    StarChart - uses the compass and tilt sensor to show the stars and planets the phone is pointing at.
    Google Earth
    Kindle - Can get a load of free classic books from Amazon.
    Flashlight - Turns the flash into an LED torch.
    London TubeMap
    RedLaser - Barcode scanner, which finds prices and locations close to you if you want as well.
    OS GB 250K - Map of the UK which is stored on the phone rather than downloading, handy if you have no signal.
