    It really depends on what you're into.
    I use (on my Droid and Incredible)
    -Astro - file management
    -GStrings - guitar tuner
    -Handcent - replaces default messaging app, gives pop up indication
    -My Tracks - awesome app for biking
    -Photosafe - to hide the naughty pics
    -Scorecenter - to keep an eye on MLB scores
    -Pandora - tunes
    -Google Voice - must have for me
    -iMusic - good luck finding this
    -MLB at bat - streaming MLB games
    -Beautiful widgets and weather widget donate - must have one or the other or both

    These are just a few off the top of my head. Hopefully they all work with the X.

    LOL. I know how clueless I was when I left BB for my Droid. I actually posted on DF to figure out how to add widgets:lol:

    @mittens - it runs kinda side by side with the default messaging app. It's kinda goofy. Just remember to turn off the notifications in messaging (default) so it doesn't notify you twice.

    Which reminds me, when in doubt, LONG PRESS AND HOLD.

    ok so it runs both at the same time you just tunr off the notification ont he one you dont want to use. Is it that much better than the stock messaging? i would assume its in a convo style, just maybe not bubbles?
