You need to practice it a bit. After that, its a hell of a lot better than any on-screen keyboard.

"Sleeptimer" in my opinion is THE BEST APP ever made

You can set like for exemple 10 minutes. You can either link the program to your standard media player or a custom media player and it will play the .mp3 files you got within the 10 minutes. After that the application and music stops and your phone "goes to sleep". So you can fall asleep with your favorite music

It's something that has to come standard with every phone that can play .mp3

Amazing app for the people who use their phone as a semi-music player like me

So have been an Android fan since inception but only last month was i able to get my hands on a phone
Sony Xperia x10i Love it
Apps that rock my world are many but i have a few that really kick
Checkmark - a power house todo
c:geo - for geocache fans like me
Digital Clock - nice horizontal clock/alarm that has color adjustmens and song for alarm
eoeAppinstaller - a better way to install own loaded apps
Handcent - Best sms chat styled text centric app out there, free now with donation button
K-9 mail - because gmail app sucks and this dosnt
Jorte - a calander - notes all in one FREE app that kiks arse
Helix - home screen application thats light on resources and fast. Easy on batter life too.
MixZing - the best MP3 player going. first in my tests that worked right away with my Motorola BT headset pause play next song call answer. nice.
Vignette - alternative camera app. The default SE camera app dose not handle Geotags properly, i needed this feature more then anything else in my smart phone.

Sorry guess i got a little carried away but dam there are some great apps out there free and purchaseWare!!!

Not sure it's my favorite but the live aniPET Koi Pond live wallpaper makes me happy. It's cool. I can feed the fishies app icons! It's a 2 day trial but I may buy the full version. I haven't had enough time to play with this phone yet. It's my first touch screen/smart phone. The most advanced phone I owned before this was a Samsung Exclaim.

I really love the android game Cestos. It has addictive online multiplayer, with a simple concept, and runs as smooth as butter on an ice rink even on old devices like the G1.

My favs:

Swype: Life changing for sure. I hated typing on touch keyboards till I found this.

Beautiful Widgets: The customizations options keep growing. Probably best money I spent on the market.

Pandora: Always listening to this at work.

Gemini Calendar: Much better than the stock calendar insofar as layout and widget.

aCar: Was using Mileage before, but this is much more detailed for keeping track of my gas expenses.

LED flashlight: As of Froyo, I've got myself a nice flashlight on my phone.

BatteryTimeLite: Monitors my percentage and tells me how long my battery will last in various modes.

Pixel Zombie Live Wallpaper: Just plain cool.

SNESroid: I like to kick back with some Final Fantasy VI every now and then.

SongDNA: For those times when I need to know the lyrics to a song.

Google Voice: Like the call forwarding and transcribed voicemail.

OurGroceries - LOVE this app! Can't live without it now. Not only does it work with Android, but it works with my wife's Blackberry and has a web interface as well. Let's you create shopping lists that can be updated immediately from any phone on the account or the web. I was able to add an item to the list while my wife was shopping and it appeared right away. Best of all, IT'S FREE!!

If you fly a lot the developers released a lite version of the air traffic control status application. It provides a widget that lists all the FAA ground stop, delays, etc. Click on the widget to see all the current reports on one page. It is ad supported and the full version provides the ability to control the refresh rate of the widget. The information really helps when the airline is not telling you why your flight is delayed. Or if the destination you're going to is having weather or other traffic management issues.

I remember someone mentioning a alarm clock app that would slowly play the song/alarm and not just go all out. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I can't seem to find the post T_T

Default Mileage

An App that I use a lot is Mileage.

I realize most newer cars will tell you how many MPG you are averaging. And if you're like me and ever had a car where the fuel gauge didn't work... you learn to figure this out

But this app does a lot more.

It will tell you how much money you have spent in fuel every month/year.
What the average price you are paying for gas is... and all sorts of statistics...

Great if you drive a lot, especially if it's for work.

Have you noticed any problems with Skymap? I guess I didn't use the back button to stop using it last time I ran it, and when my battery was 1/2 used by the middle of the day the next day, my battery monitor said that 50% of the battery power had been being used by Sky Map.

Default Anycut vs Bettercut

I haven't tried Bettercut but I did try Anycut and I am not pleased. When I create a shortcut it doesn't align with other app shortcuts on the screen. Am I doing something wrong?

Not sure what device you have but on the Nexus 1 and Droid Cool Iris developed the native gallery app and gave it the 3D effect. Hope that helps.

Gesture Search,find any contact,app or bookmark instantly just by writing out the first or second letter with your finger on the screen.

It is very accurate and for me has replaced the people app completely.

Hi, 1st post here.

Andropas: Must have application for using public transport in the Helsinki area of Finland.

Appbrain: For discovering new apps and the ease of browsing and marking apps for later installation.

Astrid: Awesome little task manager that keeps me going through busy days. Gotta love the icon!

Dolphin Browser HD: Great browsing experience in my opinion. Never updated to the later versions since it lost the Youtube download functionality.

ES File Explorer: The best file explorer, also features LAN and FTP connectivity.

Nimbuzz: Great, albeit slightly bloated IM client. Supports Skype, Windows Live Messenger (MSN), Yahoo IM, ICQ, AIM, GoogleTalk, Facebook, MySpace and many more.

Radio.nl: Nice for listening to Dutch radio webstreams. (used to live in The Netherlands)

Solo Lite: Great virtual guitar! Fun to just play around or compose songs with on the road. Been having good times at jam sessions with this app.

Wifi Analyzer: Great little app for Wifi analysis and troubleshooting.

My favourites for my Desire so far... looking forward to Froyo so I don't have to be so selective!

- Handcent SMS

- CurveFish Brightness and Profile widgets

- Picolyl LED Light widget

- App. Protector: use it for keeping photos private

- bTunes: love the widget and iPod-a-like format

- Alkido: won't replace books, but good for killing time with the odd chapter

- My Collections: for cataloguing books/music/DVDs via barcode

- Remote for iTunes: works 9 times out of ten!

- Shake Them All live wallpaper: just great fun

- Sky Maps: great time killer/mind expander

- LockMe widget: useful to stop friends messing with your phone!

- 3G Watchdog widget: nice to see all that info at a glance

- Quick Battery widget: best looking one by miles in my opinion

- The Guardian unofficial widget

- Winds of Steel: brilliant game to play and look at

- WordUp: addictive and a great time killer

- Tricorder:... I love Star Trek!

The problem is that it doesn't search images via Google or Flickr. I found some others, but they aren't as nice as the CoolIris iPhone version. Hopefully one day.

I'm using an X10.
If I install Handcent SMS, do I have to delete the default massaging app?
Cuz I'm getting two notifications for every message. One from handcent and one from the default app.
Thanks

In the default app, go into settings and disable notifications. Then you'll only get the handcent notifications.

Removed Gemini Calendar (and soon to be Pure Calendar) and BatteryTime Lite, replaced with:

Android Agenda: A very nice multifunctional calendar widget that looks good too.

Battery Indicator: Miss the usage times for my old one, but changed to this to save on widget space by putting my percentage at the top of the screen.

Also recently added...

System Info Widget: 4 x 1 widget that tells battery life, battery temperature, free RAM, free ROM, and SD card space left

Lookout: Not sure about the effectiveness of the anti-virus but the location ability and backup combined with minimal battery usage make it nice.

Widget Locker: Better than flyscreen since you don't have to unlock twice with only a little glitch here and there.

Contact Sidebar: Nice widget for fast dialing most called contacts.

3G Watchdog: With my data plan now, I like to make I'm not going to be throttled down for too much data plus I like the prediction function.

Barcode Scanner: Good for shopping and QB codes.

RockPlayer: For Divx and other files without having to convert.

Drhyde, for the Widget Locker, are the widgets interactive when they are in the lock screen? Like music player.

This seems to be a pretty new app, so the comments aren't as helpful. Is the app buggy at all? lol...and since you have the N1, since the lock screen takes up the whole screen basically...how does the widgets show? The pictures are of Sense lock.

Thanks,

xScope is my new favorite browser. It's a very clean looking browser and is 2x as fast as stock. It really gives you a Google Chrome feel. And it has 3 ways to zoom (double tap, pinch and pin zoom). Try it out!

The widgets are anything you have on your phone at the moment (not that selective crap from flyscreen) and have almost all of their functionality. I haven't tested extensively yet, but I keep my flashlight widget (works perfectly), beautiful widgets large (weather check is fine, but clicking on alarm clock or calendar changes it back to normal lock screen and when you unlock you are at those apps), and music player (play/pause, next are fine, however playlist does the same as with beautiful widgets).

As far as how they show, widget locker actually moves the unlock/silent sliders down further so you have almost as much space as you would on a regular homescreen and removes the standard clock/calendar. It seems some interactivity functions of widgets will cause the scenario above and others will not. Adding widgets is just like the normal homescreen, a long press and the menu comes up. The lockscreen can also flip to landscape mode. There is an icon on the status bar showing that it is running and it appears so far to consume very little battery. There's also settings allow for quick unlocking with the pressing of just about any button. Any other questions I'll be happy to answer, but for $.99 it's a pretty good deal.

As far as buggy, occasionally it will show the regular lockscreen and then load itself up. There are a couple of other things I observed, but can't remember off hand. They weren't bad enough to make me want a refund.

Ok, so I've read every post in this thread, proceeded to jot down all of the apps I thought I might like, and went crazy with the downloads. Have 22 new apps from this thread alone. Probably over 30 non-stock apps total (HTC EVO).


So who has the most apps installed on their phone. Is there a limit somewhere because with all these thousands of apps, how can one not have 20-30-40-50-100 that they like?

It really depends on how big the apps you download are and how much memory are allotted to you for apps storage on your internal phone storage. They range from 0.1MB to 23MB (Google Earth). I have 196MB and have about 80 apps with 38MB left.

Do you feel like it affects the performance of the phone in any way? I read that one guy had 166 apps and was having some problems. Just want to know when enough is enough. But it looks like I have a LONG ways to go.

Unless you're running a lot of the apps at once, I don't think the performance should be affected drastically. It's not as fast lets say when you have ZERO apps on the phone. Peformance on the home screens and opening apps don't seem to have been majorly affected.

Only issue I have is loading the shortcut app screen...which takes a good 15 seconds for the popup screen to load all of the apps. I've brought this up in the N1 forum and it seems like another person and I were the only ones with this issue...But usually if your phone is slugish, it might be a rouge app using up up resources.
