Recommended Applications for Bold 9700?

What applications do you recommend downloading for this phone? so far I downloaded the following:

- BeBuzz: nice and can save a few trips if the phone is charging far away.
- BerryReader: this is actually a very good app for Google reader users.
- Twitter: looks really nice and works perfectly.

So what other apps have you downloaded?

If you're in a country that supports it, Slacker Radio too. Nice way to fill in your music without having to load up on storage and sync (something the BlackBerry isn't a master at).

The Blackberry Bold 9700 has served me well for a long time. I would suggest some of these

Socialscope - Best Twitter App in my opinion.
Capture It - Screen capture software
QuickLaunch - this was pretty much mandatory for me!
