Best Symbian Apps for a Nokia.

What are some of the best Symbian apps for my Nokia phone?

I just bought my first smartphone, a Nokia E63. It is running Symbian S60 3.1 OS. I wondering what are some of essential games or productivity apps I could install on it.

Granted, I know this is no Android or iPhone and I expected the choice of games and apps would be severely limited.

Please share with me your best Symbian apps.

Thanks!

Gravity is the best twitter app (even better than most of the apps for iphone/android, IMO.)
There's actually a good thread of howardforums.com in the Series60 section that has some great recommendations.

Some of the essential Symbian apps for me:

Opera Mini

Various Google Apps, especially GMail, Google Maps, and Youtube.

I'm a programmer and sysadmin, so an SSH client is essential.

Paid apps:

If you use Twitter, Gravity is by far the best client out there. It also has some Facebook integration.

Free-iSMS is my preferred way of handling texts. There's a free and a pay version.

I use NiceAlarm to handle the oodles of alarms I set every day.

Nimbuzz is a pretty good instant message program. You can use it with GTalk, MSN, Skype, Facebook, etc.
