Some of the apps I use regularly:
DeskNotifier: Sends your notifications to your desktop. Very handy for those who are at computers for a long time
DoubleTwist: The double twist player for pc copies your itunes library and playlists and allows you to sync it with your android phone
Go Launcher (for gingerbread phones): Customisation is incredible and it is faster than the sense launcher
Apex Launcher (For ICS phones): Great home launcher replacement
Desktop Visualiser: Good for more intense customisation lol
Minimalistic text: Text based widgets such as for the time. eg. sevenFORTYnine
Overskreen, Opera and Chrome: 3 browsers each with specific benefits
Solid Explorer: My personal favourite file explorer
Switchpro widget: On screen toggle switches
Vidcon: My girlfriend has an iphone and vidcon very quickly converts the iphone videos to mp4 format

Almost a month Bart, Hows it going?
Which device too?
Went with a Galaxy Nexus I had the Nexus One when it was first released, so I felt the need to get the latest and greatest in the series.
I chose it before the Galaxy SIII was announced, not sure if I should have waited!
Loving the large screen, overall speed seems very good as well. Just trying out GO Launcher at the moment, but all the great visuals seem to be taking their toll on my battery life (Although I do love the changes)
I'd be very keen to try out a One X or Galaxy SIII for a week or so, but overall very happy with the Galaxy Nexus.

hahah, just as i get the email notification of this im sitting here playing with go sms, you can really get lost in the DIY theme setup..... i think i might just switch back to one of the default themes for the time being. I gotta get more rennos done!!!
I really do love how you can move the icon bar down the bottom in the launcher and add up to 3 rows of horizontal scrolling icons: thats sold me over touchwiz on sgs 2. As for the battery life initially it was a bit worse but i havent noticed too much difference since i allowed go launcher to control everything you want it to when android asks. This seemed to make battery life better for me....
Once you use it for a while you go back to the default samsung layout and its soooo bland you kind of cant wait to launch go again.

I had really bad battery life with Go Launcher. To the point that I cant use it,
Hmm yeah im getting ok results but i am going to monitor it a bit more before i fully commit myself, nice to see they regularly update it thou.
Go sms is a bit buggy at times, It would be nice thou if theyd let you customise touchwiz more...
