Edit: Guys, I will be incorporating your post into the OPs. If you don't mind try to keep the format similar i.e. App Name with link embedded and a short description.
Well done, squire. This thread is looking awesome! :)

Official market one's?

No.

Edit: Well thinking about it, if you install http://www.youwave.com/ and then get a Google market app on it to install the apps on the Emulator, then back-up the APK's and move them to your phone.

I just got this my HTC Desire S yesterday and I just started using it now. I remember you mentioned somewhere your top 5 MUST HAVE apps. I read your blog and other threads, but it's just too much for a first time android user.

It evolved into this thread, seeing that people like different apps for different reasons.
I would say 5 top must have in categories is:

Security(Lookout): track the phone when lost/stolen
Back-up(My Sync Center): sync your data with your PC
Communication(Whatsapp): its more than a phone
Power Management(Juice Defender): to keep you online longer.
Data Management(Onavo): To keep the phone account low

But honestly see what the different ones offer.

Looking for a good FTP client?

AndFTP
AndFTP is a robust client for Android Phones with support for FTP, FTPS, and SFTP transfers, as well as SSH key support.

This is free, but there is a Pro version as well. The free version does the job for me.

Featured on Lifehacker.

Guys, what will you say is the best free GPS app to download? And secondly, if I connect the samsung galaxy S Plus to our wifi network at home, does the phone use wifi to download apps and things or still 3G? I downloaded sygic but the SA maps are 500mb to download and don't want that on my account come month end

A very usful app that i can a cross was OTA RootKeeper - It allows you to backup and restore your root

I use it for when I watch stuff on the DSTV drifta (DSTV mobile decoder), as it require you to have a non rooted device.
All you have to do is make a backup and then temporary unroot your device...then you can watch your drifta
