    Default So, I rooted. Now what?

    I finally went and rooted thanks to Mik's posted video and it was as simple as everyone says. After losing my keyboard thanks to some stupidity on my part, I now have a functioning android tablet.

    My question is, what's next?

    I have an maxipodipad that was given to me (work related) and it's loaded with games and whatnot (I have kids) and I have a smartphone that gets me all the essential apps for my daily life (opentable, weather, news, sports scores etc) and now I'm sitting on an android tablet and I haven't a clue what to put on it.

    any suggestions beyond angry birds? Any apps that y'all feel is essential, necessary, cool, fun etc?

    Dolphin Browser
    Zeam home replacement
    Cool Reader - much better than the stock app for reading sideloaded books. You will also want to install a dictionary to go with this. I'm using Fora
    Desktop visualizer to create large shortcuts and widgets (i.e. shortcuts to books from your home screen)
    WordSmith - the best Scrabble game ever!
    Root Explorer for accessing folders/files on internal memory
    Titanium Backup - to create backups for all the cool stuff
    Anipet Aquarium live wallpaper
    Clutchpad - quick access to favorite and last used apps
    Button Savior - preferable to Softkeys
    CopiPe - copy and store frequently used words and phrases for pasting into documents and fields (you will also need a keyboard that has a paste function such as SlideIT)
    QuickPic - way better than the built-in gallary for viewing pictures
    Amazon Kindle app for reading Kindle books, if you have any

    Color Notes. Note app.
    Evernote. Share notes between that iPad Nook and phone
    EzPdf. Not free but a decent PDF application
    'Eating solid food since 1957'

    Ohhhh....that reminds me. I totally forgot about Springpad. Better than Colornotes and Evernote IMHO.
