My apps list

Firstly, thanks to Rupor for his great rooting kit

I've managed to squeeze a lot of my favourite apps onto my reader:

aCalendar
Amazon Kindle
BBC News (the best BBC news reader - great in landscape mode)
ConvertPad
Crossword Solver
DiskUsage
K9 emailer
Market (the version from the wiki http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...rket_Procedure)
Poweramp
RealCalc
Root Explorer
Rotation Locker
Scrabble Helper
Smart Bar (the version from this thread - the latest says it's incompatible on Play Store)
Terminal Emulator (vital for running fix_persmissions)
Titanium Backup Pro (although batch scenarios listing text doesn't not show)
Tube Master (London Underground status app)
Wikidroid
Wordplay (surprisingly playable on the eInk screen)

All you need for proper day to day use Just missing a contacts viewer.

As an owner of an HTC Desire HD and an Asus Transformer, getting battery run times of more than a week with my Sony is pretty jaw dropping Shows it is the screen and data sync that burns the juice with Android, not the underlying OS.

I've owned every model of Sony eReader since the 505 and was still carrying my 650 around due to screen readability and battery life, but this ability to run apps on my shiny new PRS-T1 is a real game changer for me. Back to just carrying my Sony around
