Astro File Manager

If you plan on using your phone for anything other than making calls, chances are you're going to end up with a lot of files and folders rattling around on the SD card.

This friendly task list works wonderfully as a self-contained to-do manager. It lets you set priorities and assign tags, durations and notes to a task, and other standard to-do operations. Where it really shines, though, is that it syncs both ways with your cloud-based task list at rememberthemilk.com. Once you've set your tasks, Astrid tenaciously but jovially prompts you to deal with them at the appropriate time, offering encouragement with lines like "Do it, and you'll feel better' Thanks, I feel better already.

There are plenty available for free on the Market, but where GDocs stands out is that it allows you to sync notes with your Google Docs- account.

If integration with Google Docs isn't important to you, take a look at AK Notepad, which lets you create basic notes, label them, pin them to your home screen, share them and set reminders. Note Everything is also worth a look.

Competition is fierce at the top when it comes to Twitter apps, but Touiteur has more than one advantage over the others. It’s easy on the eye, fully customizable and the premium version (a snip at €1.99) has some great widgets. Touiteur has too many well-thought-out features to list here, but where it really stands out is its use of threaded conversations, making it easier to figure out what someone's tweet was in response to. Tweeting is quick and simple with a decent widget in the free version, and a drop-down bar you can access from anywhere within the app to start typing.
