Sonos has announced an official app for Android. Not to be confused with the existing Andronos app.

pocket BLU
The perfect app to enhance your Blu-ray™ experience. Works with any pocket BLU™ enabled disc, along with a PS3™ or other Internet-connected Blu-ray™ player.

I installed it and was controlling my PS3 that had a bluray playing at the time

Droid TV. Cool little app that has a decent variety of shows that download straight to your sd card, if you want. Now all we need is Droid movie!!!

Also Widgetsoid is great for replacing the stock power bar control and has way more options for the widget bar such as wifi tethering, air plane mode, 3g on/off, flashlight, soft reboot, etc., etc. Since I have started using the 3g/ on off switch, my 3g data usage has gone way down and battery life has gone up quite a bit. It is amazing how many little programs are always on and exchanging information all the time.

You could add one very useful feature to your application. VERY IMPORTANT :-)
Change MAC address of the WiFi of your phone to the random one when you start your application each time.

^^^^
Given that I use WPA2 encryption, why would that be "very important".

BTW, it's not my app. It's one I downloaded from the Android Market.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

I installed UnblockMe (free) a couple months back - great timekiller if you like those kind of puzzles.
1200 levels plus challenge mode (try to finish every level again with the optimum solution)

Excellent app for free.

AdFree for rooted phones is great. Blocks those annoying ads on games and certain apps and is updated all the time to keep the workarounds these companies use to get ads on your apps at bay.

GPS Status

GPS Status is pretty cool - shows the signal levels for all the satellites. My Nexus S has problems getting locks on GPS satellites (a common problem with the Nexus S).

I'll vote for Tunewiki. It's a music player which automatically downloads scrolling lyrics for your music collection. How cool is that...

I don't know if this is an applet, but I finally found a way to stream video from my PC to my HTC Desire HD, with transcoding on the fly, and subtitles working properly. Even a 1080p mkv worked fine. It's called Qloud.

VLC S&C worked okay, but subtitles didn't always show up. I highly recommend Qloud, though I have only used it over my LAN, and not yet over the internet.
