I guess I'm one of the rare people that uses my G-Tablet in place of their home PC. I have productivity apps, media, and lots of games. I've got over 70 apps installed, and I use a lot of them regularly. I'll list my most used though, not sure if I'd call it my "top 7" for sure, but these are certainly in heavy use.

1) Dolphin Browser HD (Although I do use Opera on occasion, I always go back to Dolphin)

2) PocketMoney (great checkbook/budget app on iOS, Android version is catching up)

3) Rockplayer (Since I use Flashback 8.1, This runs all my videos in Software mode without a hitch)

4) Dungeon Defenders (still lags on higher difficulties/larger levels sometimes, but I love this game)

5) Appy Geek (Tech News)

6) Reckless Getaway (awesome game, I like it better than Reckless Racing)

7) Perfect Viewer (Comic book viewer)

My main go-to games are Reckless Getaway, Asphalt 6 (Acer Iconia Tab a500 version), Dungeon Defenders, and Sprinkle. I also use MixZing for music playing, or TuneIn Radio Pro if I want to have some radio streaming. Also have some cookbook apps that are quite handy, "Jamie Oliver's 20 minute meals" and "What's for Dinner"

If I had to pick the most useful apps I've come across, however, it would be these two:
Application Folder Pro (put all of your app icons into folders on your home screens, it's GREAT for organizing a lot of apps)
Toggle StatusBar (http://www.appbrain....togglestatusbar)

Also, if you are looking for games, I have a list of compatible games that I currently have running on my G-Tablet, broken down by genre:

A quick question for you, I have a gTab running Brilliant Corners 1.3.1. I'm trying to download the Dolphin HD browser from the market, it tells me that my device is not compatible with Dolphin HD. Did you have to do some Linux like command line editing to fake out the market into believing the gTab was another type of phone/device? I'd really like to try Dolphin but I'm stuck, I also got the same message when I tried to download Opera for Android.

Thanks in advance for any hints.

You probably need to do a market fix. See the first post on the BC thread. There should instructions/a link to instructions. You can also get the latest version (7) from getjar.com

You need to change the build.prop file or the lcd density regarding the app in question. For Dolphin HD I assume you would only have to change the build.prop and change the device manufacturer.

A.I.type Keyboard Plus - excellent predictive keyboard

Comics / Comixology - digital comics reader

File Expert - featureful file and app tool

Tapatalk - efficient forum reader

1) pulse
2) evernote
3) root explorer
4) dropbox
5) chrome to phone
6) ted air
7) minecraft

BONUS - I don't use one browser, yet. Flash works best on the stock browser for me, I like dolphin for the bookmarks & addons, and Chrome Beta is growing on me but not quite a daily driver
8) dolphin/stock browser/chrome beta

Not sure what happened to my post, so I'll try again.

These are not in any special order

1. Multipicture Live Wallpaper- allows me to have each homescreen as a different picture and I have it set to change or cycle to new pics every 2 min.

2. Documents to Go- Paid version. works great for when I am out of the office

3. ES File Explorer- Just started using this to make .apk's to save on my microSD or PC of all apps I have downloaded. No more trying to find them on the market once I download them once.

4. GTunes Music- Free music

5. LogMeIn Ignition- Works great as a remote desktop. I don't bring my work laptop with me home anymore. I just log in remotely and it is as if I am sitting at my desk, fun way to run windows from your G-tab. Also use this to check on what my boy is up to on his computer from time to time. Even used it to logon to my wife's computer to fix it while I was away.

6. Any simple game that can keep the kids occupied.

7. Dolphin HD- I like the full screen option

I run Flashback and all of these work just fine. I don't use my PC much anymore as I pretty much got this thing tuned to the way I need it. My last project is to get a dock and try to use this as a multimedia center by hooking it up to my TV and Stereo. I think it would be pretty trick to use it to watch movies and play music while scrolling through pictures.

I use almost all of these..def top apps..

Can you give a brief description of how you do that? sounds like a great Idea.
