1. Amarok - The most popular audio player on Linux
The audio player of choice for most KDE users. Amarok is also the most popular audio player on Linux offering a great audio experience and including any feature one could ask from an audio player.
2. KTorrent - Complete BitTorrent client
KTorrent was a very good client for the BitTorrent protocol two years ago, when it was at version 1.0. Since then, KTorrent only featured improvements, which turned it into the best client for KDE.
3. K3b - The most popular CD/DVD burner application
K3b practically became synonymous with CD/DVD burning on Linux, just like Nero is on Windows.
4. Gwenview - Image viewer for KDE
Gwenview features thumbnail views and can be expanded through plugins which allow basic image editing. Light and fast, yet perfect for viewing images.
5. KVirc - IRC client
In my opinion, no KDE IRC client can beat XChat, and there are plenty more except KVirc, like KSirc or Konversation. This client offers good support for IRC and features its own scripting language, more like mIRC-style. Can support themes and I think it's the one that looks the 'best' from all the IRC clients out there.
6. Kaffeine - Video player
Despite the fact that it usually ships with something broken or a few small bugs, Kaffeine can play almost anything. It's not VLC, that's true, but it has support for subtitles with encoding option, can play DVDs, VCDs and audio CDs, has customisable shortcuts and it doesn't take many resources. You can embed it in the system tray if you like.
7. KDevelop - KDE development environment
KDevelop is a full-featured development environment, which makes easy to develop large applications, maintain projects, create makefiles and more. It's a must-have for a developer. If you only want basic programming, then go with Kate.
8. Kid3 - Audio tag editor
Kid3 supports editing tags for plenty audio files, like MP3, OGG Vorbis or FLAC. It provides the ability to edit tags in mass, which makes the work faster and easier than using a normal tag editor included in an audio player.
9. DigiKam - Photo management
DigiKam is a good application for managing your photos from cameras in collections in albums. You can edit, import and export albums and much more.
10. Yakuake - Shell-like application
Yakuake is a terminal emulator, just like Konsole, which offers by default the shortcut F12 to bring it to front when needed or to hide it when you've done your work.
