  1. Alarm Clock [6/10] - meh
  2. Amazed - rollaroundtype game [7/10]
  3. Barcode Scanner [10/10] - way cool. (If you work in Tescos.)
  4. Browser [8/10] - better than iPhone (ouch) but could be better
  5. Bubble [8/10] - a spirit level! in my phone! Cool! (& yes - the iPhone one is much, much cooler)
  6. Calculator [5/10] - so 1980's
  7. Camera [4/10] - working on the universally safe assumption that it's a phone so the camera sucks.
  8. Cardio Training [7/10] - marks for effort (theirs not mine - I haven't tried it)
  9. Chess [6/10]
  10. Chess-lite [7/10] - mild improvement
  11. Compass [9/10] a compass!
  12. Contacts [6/10] - it's so impossible not to compare with Apple... this can be better

  14. Email [7/10] - it's so impossible not to compare with Blackberry... this can be better

  17. FlashLight [8/10] - tin says flashlight
  18. Free Dictionary [7/10] is a dictionary that's free (not pretty)

  21. Mah Jongg [8/10]
  22. Maps [8/10] - damn fast way to spend muchos muchos roaming dollar

  35. StopWatch [3/10] - quite close to the minimalism of the 1930's original except without style.

  37. Thesaurus [7/10]
  38. Twidroid [8/10] - more than enough for me
