    I'll list my most used apps ...

    1. Antair Nightstand

    I concur and this with the charging craddle on my nightstand has replaced my bedtime reading books and regular alarm clock. Climb in bed, read a little, charge myPlaybook and get woken up in the morning all in one gizmo. Which leads me to ...

    2. Kobo

    My family and I own a whack of Kobo ereaders and although the Playbook app is not my favorite way of reading my Kobo books it is a close second especially at night.

    3. Browser (built in app)

    Literally the most compatible tablet or phone browser I have ever tried to use. I am not upset that my two banks don't have native apps be ause the web versions work perfectly. I will have to try Simply Browser.

    4. Blue Box

    Third party interface between my Playbook and my cloud storage Dropbox. Not as integrated with Docs to Go as I would like but has not let me down yet. The real Dropbox app and Docs to Go combo on my BB 9810 is darn near perfect for my business needs.

    5. Docs to Go

    Lets me view and edit all my business memos and spreadsheets.

    DosBox - Playing old school point and click adventure games is great.

    Files and Folders - I love being able to brows the PB's folders and Drop Box folders in one place

    Geereader - a good RSS aggregator

    Splashtop HD - I absolutely love this app. I mainly use it to stream videos to my PB, but it's also great for moving files and folders around on my HTPC without having to actually go downstairs.

    Kobo - Not the best reader, but it lets me read my Kobo books so it's on this list by default.

    in no particular order..

    Browser
    NOVA2
    PlayTorrent
    BB News
    Video chat

    That is actually all I really use, the Browser just takes the place of so many piece of sh*t apps.

    These made into the list mostly because they are good to show off:

    ProInsights
    Dead Space
    Need for Speed
    Slashtop
    Last but not least.... Bridge Apps

    These help show people the power of the PlayBook and once Cascades comes, this will be a much easier job.

    Modern Combat 2
    Scrapbook by TAT/RIM
    Quake III for OS 2.0
    Box.net 50 GB storage
    Play Torrent (Not available in App World)

    Edit: Can't believe Scrapbook didn't make it into anybodys top5 app list

    People who included Files and folders & Groovy notes got likes from the respective developers I think Good Job, even i would have added these 2 apps but I'm only allowed 5.

    Evernote
    BB News
    BB Bridge
    Stuff
    Scrapbook

    My list of top 5 non-native apps (though all should be integrated and made native)

    Files and Folders
    Simple Browser +
    Splashtop
    Accuweather
    Book Reader

    In that order. obviously I also use the regular browser, bridge functions, media player and docs to go all the time, but they don't count cause they're there whether you want them or not.
