Spare Parts lets you tweak some options that aren't available in the normal options menu.
Frozen Bubble you know this one :)
Handcent SMS - far superior to the default SMS client
Astrid - brilliant To Do list app
Abduction World Attack - stupidly addictive game
Astro - file manager

App killer - extends your battery life by shutting down all apps running in the background.

Vignette - Same as hipstmatic on iphone. Free version restriscts your pics to 0.3mp but the paid one (about 3 quid) goes up to the full res of your camera.

Ping chat - Bit useless if you have free texts but some people don't and this goes on your data allowence instead. just a simple messaging/chat service thingy.

Winamp have released an Android version and it's rather good. Some very nice UI design and much better than Meridian which I was using previously

It is but not on Marketplace for the moment. I've tracked it down and it needs some serious optimization, still bloody good but could run smoother, saying that I'm running on a Hero so it's pre-snapdragon processors.

Runs fine on my Samsung Galaxy S, but that does have 512MB RAM and a 1Ghz Processor...

Yeah, probably down to my phone but they say it should run on 1.6. I'd hate to see that.

Now have a spiffy new HTC Desire Z and Angry Birds runs lovely. Super KO Boxing 2 is worth checking out but it won't run on Hero

Nice one, it's a bugger they changed the refund window to 15 minutes games like this are only going to increase but really they don't have to provide a refund at all.
