What is your favorite smart phone App and why?

Mine is the Sports Center App for scores and high lights and Super Dynamite Fishing.  I can not get enough of this game.  Also VNL Weather has been really nice as well.
LikeFinder is also nice but have not used it that much.
Droid Streamer for watching family guy .

I have had my droid for a couple months, and my favorites are.

Netflix - watch TV Episodes and Movies almost anywhere
The Weather Channel - self explanatory
GTunes Music - Wide range of music for your phone
Pandora Radio - Been using it on my computers for years.  Create your own stations
Google Sky Map - Point your phone at the sky at night and see the names of all visible planets and stars.  Works inside the house too, lol.
BitLetters - I really like the game Scrabble, and that is what this is.

 I don’t want to kill the animal, but I do want to warn it, and say “hey, I think you’re pretty neat, but I respect your distance.” There’s bears out here, there’s mountain cougars, and biting goats.

My favorite is the Fishing Buddy app....................................But other than the Sportscenter app, Break.com has a sweet app for funny videos and pics.  Handcent SMS is cool for texting (similar format to the iphone) and your text messages pop up even if your screen is locked for my Droid X.  Miren Browser is a better way to surf the web compared to the standard version.  Fatbooth is a funny picture app.  Lookout is a great security app.  It will lock and locate your phone from a computer if you lose it.  It will turn on the GPS and give you the coordinates and you have the option to turn on a scream/siren so you can hear it.  Saved me a new phone one night after a few too many and misplaced it.

Oooh, I did try Handcent SMS for a bit, I think I am going to put it back on my phone.  I didn't know it shows the message when locked.

I will definitely check into Lookout!

"where's my droid" In case I lose it
"weather" obvious reasons
"calender" Great to keep my meetings and appointments
"voice recognition" easy to search things via google
"navigation" obvious
"pandora" music options
"google sky map" pretty cool
"radar now" absolute favorite! Use this almost religiously.
"google earth" Another awesome tool to have on your phone.
"compass" Obvious
"level" Handy for hanging pics, etc.
The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

Handcent will also let you do a quick reply without unlocking the phone.  It's nice.

As far as games go, one called 9 innings Pro Baseball is pretty good once you get a hang of it. 
If you have a Brother printer that handles wireless printing they have an app (Brother iPrint&Scan)  that allows you to print photos, PDF files and you can scan documents from the printer. 
Paper Toss.  Another game to pass the time.
NOTEPAD.   Good for making "To do" lists or just keeping notes.

Photosynth is awesome.

Take and stitch a series of pics together to make horizontal and vertical panorama shots. Makes it look like you're right there again looking around when you show it to others later.

I found a cool one, on the bottom left side of the phone there is a green button, push that and dial a friends phone number and it's just like they are inside your phone! You can ask tricky questions and the damn thing knows the correct answer, and tells you the answer in a voice that sounds just like the guy who's phone number you dialed! How the hell do they come up with some of this stuff?

Other than that, most of the stuff others mentioned, weather, radar, free music downloads, ect.

I am running the Cabelas app as well.  It is ok.  I heard to download Navionics maps as well but do they have maps of the ND lakes on there and if so which one.

I agree to what most people are saying here....but here are a few others:

-Flashlight: Comes in handy now and then like the 'Level' app.
-Score Mobile: Quick simple sports/scores app.
-Air Horn: When a buddy gets on a rant, set off the horn...kinda funny.
-Ballistics: Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but looks like it could be neat.
-Bar Code Scanner: Will compare prices of the same product in other stores in your area
-Chuck Norris Jokes: No explanation needed.
-Coyote Hunting Calls
-GPS Essentials
-Mil.Calculate: Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but looks like it could be neat.
-Lake Finder: For people that fish MN lakes.
-My Fishing Advisor: Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but looks like it could be neat.
-Police Scanner
-Radar Now

i have the navionics app. it does have most of the lakes for nd. i bought it mostly for peck scince they showed it on the wepsite $15 later it isn''t on there, go figure. if u download it make sure ur on wifi and it does take a considerable amount of time half hour or so if i remember right.

if u want a specific lake let me know and i'll check the app but from what i can tell it has almost all of the nd lakes

Besides the ones listed:

TiKL -  It is a walkie-talkie type app, works great when in locations with low voice signal, but can get a data signal.  Example:  middle of the lake ice fishing.

I have a few already mentioned but here's what i have on my X

iheartradio- because i like to bring KFAN everywhere

myfitnesspal- helps keep track of my calories very easily

facebook

advanced task killer - kills apps & other programs to preserve battery

akinator lite - because this genie will guess anyone your thinking of, passes time in car

barcode scanner- easy comparison for prices

android light - flashlight comes in handy

google sky map - because who doesn't want to know which stars your looking at?

weatherbug - i've compared it to weatherchannel, and i like the layout and ease of weatherbug instead.
