Just make a collection and share it with you:
It is nice to run multiple tasks in a single app, and Glimpse steps up to handle this in style. Glimpse can have as many as 5 panes open at once, each running a different task to show the most information on a screen possible. Glimpse includes a number of widgets to run in these panes that handle common tasks, like Twitter, Google Reader, regular RSS feeds and even a web browser. Users can configure as many panes as desired from the full palette available.
50GB of free storage? Sounds crazy, but true. All you gotta do is download the app and set up a free account for working with all of that free cloud storage a breeze.

For those of you who like to blog on the go, the WordPress app gives you all the capabilities of the popular blogging software on your tablet. WebOS's multitasking capabilities let the WordPress app give you the ability to quickly swipe through managing, editing and browsing your content on multiple panels.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Need for Speed is the premiere series of mobile driving games, and Hot Pursuit adds something a lot of the other versions have missed. You can play as a cop or a “racer” pursuing illegal drivers or trying to evade the police. Action is smooth and good-looking on the TouchPad, and you steer with the accelerometer.

Amazon Kindle
What's HP TouchPad without a Kindle app? TouchPad syncs with your existing Kindle library and lets you search for text, mark pages, and check your notes.

VideoFlood HD
The Touchpad is perfect for watching video. Video Flood HD is a great way to do that. This app provides access to online video shows, network TV shows, podcasts and movies. The interface is simple and makes the large amount of available video shows very accessible. It is a great way to spend some unexpected free time with your tablet.

(all/heaps of homebrew too numerous to list so heres a few of my most used)
Ubuntu Chroot
Enyo Network Drive Mapper

Non Homebrew
Advanced Browser
Internet Radio HD Pro
Music Player Remix
Project Macaw/Graphite
Kalemsoft Media Player
Beeb News
All The Devices Synergy Services

Not listing games as i have far far too many (interestingly enough i have vastly more games on my touchpad and even pre3 than i do on any of my 4 android devices or ipad3 which i find amazingly weird as the latter have more games/apps in general. Probably dont like them as their often filled with malware/junk/garbage or just dont work)

Well it shows the difference in users for the Touchpad for people...(As I'm not a twitter or such person)

For me, it's more the things that the Touchpad should have already built in...

Advanced Browser
Photo Effect
Kalemsoft Media Player
Touchvol (Preware)
Google Maps (Preware)
Splashtop remote
WIFI file sharing (Preware)
Voice Recorder
Gemini File Manager

The good to have
Picsel Smart Office
Dr.Battery (Preware)

Patches from Preware
Make Advanced Browser the default browser


Casual play
Tower Wars
Glow Hockey
Azkend 1 and 2
AW Solitaire

Higher level-graphics
Grave defence
Radiant Defence
No Gravity
Ground effect
Mini Golf Wachy Worlds
3d Pool Master
Serpent of Isis

In no particular order and they are all great games, plus many others, but these would be my recommendations.

Get a Touchpad loaded up with these and most would be set for a long while... only those that need to do social media should need to add Facebook and the other RSS feed and twitter stuff.

I still don't see why I'd even want to bother with any other tablet...
Palm M105 > M130 > Zire 71 > Zire 72 >TX > Lifedrive > Pre > Pre2 >Touchpad > Pre3(8GB) > Pre3 (16GB)
I see a pattern...

I take back justdraw. I spent 20 minutes drawing something up and it forced a reboot on my touchpad. Also doesn't auto save. *rage building*

My Favorites page has:

Splashtop Remote - useful on rare occasions, can remote Netflix from my desktop in a pinch
Kalemsoft Media Player - the MVP of video players for TouchPad, essential
BHome Pro - DLNA streaming combined with Kalemsoft Media Player
Apollo - for Pandora (but I also use Pandora Tablet, just as good really)
Zite - best news browser
TB File Transfer (needs PC app as well) - simple but effective wireless file transfer
Commander - essential file management utility for the TP
AgendaZ - for the Exhibition Mode calendar
Picsel Smart Office - for the better pdf viewer, and displays some spreadsheets better than QuickOffice
Google Maps - great preware app as an alternative to HP's Bing maps
Slide RSS - if you want to use the TP on Touchstone for photo RSS slide show from remote source
Slideshow Presentation - can't be beat for displaying a local photo slide show
Canuck TV - some links don't work any more, but good for others (and a lot easier to use than Video Flood)
pReader - essential preware app for reading epubs

The only patch I have installed is the one to improve the stock QuickOffice Adobe pdf reader, which can sometimes read a pdf that Picsel chokes on, but it's seriously flawed by a memory leak.

On the PC side, 3 essentials:
Touch2PCPrinter - server to allow the TP to print wirelessly to a PC printer
WebOSQuickInstall - essential installer/updater for non-app-store apps
TBTransfer - server for TBTransfer wireless file transfer

There are many other apps and games I use occasionally, and some good news apps for some of my local news sources, but I haven't bothered listing them because I consider them too specialized to be of general interest or only rarely useful.
