Here are some of my must have apps:

1. Chrome Browser Beta (on ICS)
2. Newsrob RSS News Reader
3. Android Agenda Widget (Best, free calendar widget app)
4. Google Music for offline and cloud music - Integrates well with ICS OS
5. Widgetsoid - For customizable powercontrol style widgets in the notification menu/homescreen
6. Weatherbug for Temperature notifications in menu bar and pushed notifications for local weather alerts
7. Beautiful Widgets - I primarily like their 4x1 weather widget
8. Realcalc - Great, free calculator app

If you are rooted:
1. Android Wifi Tether
2. Titanium Backup Pro

And it goes without saying that the integrated GMail and Google maps apps are essential and pretty awesome

Hi Sahil,

I tried Smart Receiver Pro and found it very useful and easy to use.

Taskos was also nice.

I reccomend this android app - SnyervBPrice1.0 Scanner It is a barcode scanner which allows you to scan the product's barcode and shows you all the information about the product, including where you can find the same product for a better price.
