Useful Android photo apps or tool suggestions?

I recently got a Android mobile handset, and found that the Android Market has a whole section devoted to Photography that features what looks like over 1,000 paid and free apps:
https://market.android.com/apps/PHOTOGRAPHY

So far a few of the free tools I've installed include:

DOFCalc which is a very easy to use DOF calculator.

PhotoTools, which does flash exposure calculations, DOF calculations, and a ton of other things.

Any other apps people can recommend?

I use Open GPS Tracker (https://market.android.com/details?id=nl.sogeti.android.gpstracker) to help geotag my pictures.

Light meter app:

Also, an app called Tapatalk is useful to browse this forum.

What I'd really like to be able to do is to use liveview and control the camera from the phone/tablet.

That would be very cool. But how would you interface the handset/tablet to the camera? A wireless solution would be good, but no Pentaxes (aside from the K-r, in a form) can do any wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth, irDa etc natively).

Not a photo software recommendation, but you might want to consider an app like Lookout Mobile Security. It does a couple things. It backs up your data, scans for viruses, and most importantly (to me) can lock out your phone and wipe out the contents of the phone and card if you lose your phone. It can also tell the location of the phone via GPS.

Good tip. I'll check it out.

It's easy to forget that a smartphone is essentially like a PC/Mac, with the same security risks (and management overheads).
