APNDroid : to turn on/off Data on the go.

NetCounter : to know how much data you have used.

Gesture Search : Killer app from google, simply amazing. Lets you search almost anything on your phone with gestures.

OperaMini : Really nice browser, loads pages very fast because its servers reformats it to the phone you are using.
