    Congrats, i just rooted my nook this week (got it for my birthday on the 7th) and i am loving it. I havent been able to find any place with a great beginners list of apps but i'll tell you what i've got that i like so far.

    titanium backup (needed it to wipe data so youtube would work)
    Zeam Launcher
    ADB wireless (i havent used it yet lol)
    soft keys
    adobe reader
    amazon
    dictionary.com
    the weather channel
    google earth
    google sky maps
    yahoo mail
    twitter

    my favorite music apps;
    xiilive lite
    tunein radio
    pandora

    some good games:
    Word twist
    wordfeud free (my new favorite game, nick is muslimmamma if you wanna invite me lol)
    dropwords
    boggle droid lite
    kids doodle
    sbmx (i dont like it but i wanted to draw)

    Thats about all i got that i kept, i should have made a list of all the apps i installed and deleted. Alot of things i tried didnt work. Yes and ALL of those were free from the android market place. I'll have to check out the dolphin but i wasnt sure i needed it. Post any apps you try and find that you like and congrats again!

    I was a little worried at first because after rooting my apps would not download until I downloaded. Launcher pro. Is that like zeam?

    Do I need another browser?

    THANKS

    Yes.

    Web browser ? Try Miren or Dolphin HD. You can also try Firefox, works fine.

    Congrats and welcome to the family :)

    Your apps won't show up in the drawer or the extras folder until you install a launcher like zeam or launcherpro or if you are still on the B&N launcher, you need to reboot to see them...so just install a launcher and you are good to go.

    I use both zeam and launcherpro

    When you install the Dolphin HD... does that make it run faster?? I have had it ask when trying to view videos, which do I want to use? Laucher Pro or B & N ?? Is that what you talking about?

    I can't find my "Thanks" button, so .... Thanks alot for your help!! :)

    I am talking Web Browsers Rhonda, one which you use to browse internet. and Dolphin HD is my personal fav :)

    and Launcher pro and Zeam are application launchers*. After installing them, press 'n' button and chose either of two. Zeam is my personal fav :)

    Thanks button should be just below my avatar :p

    *they just show grid of icons of applications installed. try them, you will get an idea
