So I wanted to start this thread to get everyone's opinion as to what they personally feel are the best apps out there for the Kindle Fire. This is not meant to be a discussion about which apps have the highest "star rating" in the app store or a discussion like "My buddy wrote this app and it is TOTALLY L337-zors! Zomg, it's sooooo good get it NOOOWWW or you're a noob!".
What I am looking for is real, honest evaluations of applications that you use on a regular basis and what makes them so great. Also, if you have any tips and tricks to enhance those apps or interesting or unique ways of using them or working with them in tandem with other apps would be great too!
I personally LOVE Springpad... it's permissions aren't nearly as invasive as Evernote and I love the Springpad extensions for Chrome (there are many, I use the official one and the third-party extension that adds a Springpad tab to my Yahoo web mail).
Additionally, even though it came pre-installed on the Kindle Fire, I really like Pulse. I've used the other aggregation apps (like ChannelCaster, et al) but I've found Pulse to be the best, especially because of the Google Reader integration.
Other apps that I really love are:
Analytix Pro, which is an app that allows you to monitor your Google Analytics information for the websites I administrate.
Bleacher Report, which is SO much better than the pre-installed ESPN app.
Text+ Gold, which like the name suggests, is a text application. It assigns you a free telephone number that only sends and receives texts. But the company has said they are working on expanded functionality.
Wifi Analyzer, which is a great, light weight app for managing wifi connections and if you install the sister app, Wifi Connecter (not available in the Amazon app store but you can install it if you allow third-party apps in your options menu) you can use both apps together to analyze and connect to or configure version wifi networks.
Badass Battery Monitor (Kindle Fire Edition) is an awesome app that allows you to get info about charge time, battery life, expected battery usage, etc. It has some of the same functionality as Android Assistant but for a light weight app it is quite useful.
Lastly, Alarm Clock Xtreme is the best clock/alarm app I've come across on ANY platform, not just Kindle Fire. It is WELL worth the price and the feature list is so extremely robust that you can set or customize nearly any aspect of the app.
What are your favorite apps?
P.S - Let's refrain from talking about games... unless of course it is THAT good. Plus, we all know about Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Plants vs. Zombies!
EDIT: Here are the links I forgot to add before.
