Might I suggest to the OP that he use the "hide" BB code around the QR codes like I did in this thread. It'll make it look a whole lot cleaner. You might also consider adding a price and where to download it with each app.

If you look at the app or even better read the dev's post it really isn't your normal TK.

It does allow you to kill apps, but I think it is far more valuable as an information tool when people are still trying to understand how Android works. I don't actually use it, but I figured that enough people use task killers around here that providing one that is useful and informative might be helpful.
Yeah, I just wanted to give you a hard time. I was just shocked that you even suggested the use of a task killer after reading many things including you sig link. Don't get me wrong I use one but only for one or two apps.

Has anyone tried out Grooveshark? The app is only available to Premium Subscribers of their service right now while it's in beta so I went ahead and signed up and boy is it worth the $3.00 a month!

Thanks,

1. It is similar to the stock, shows album art, and controls on the bottom. The widget takes up the entire screen, no sliding lock screen. There is a button on the top that takes you to the stock lock screen, so there is another step to getting to your phone.

2. I apologize, It's actually called TurboList. I have tried a couple note apps, but I was looking for the check-off lists that I didn't really find elsewhere. Yes to the voice clips, and no widget, but I did find out I could pin it to a NoteEverything shortcut on the home screen. I did also like ColorNote for the ability to "stick" a Post-It note like widget with your notes right on your home screen. With choice of color.

Hope this helps.

Google tasks has a check off too. And you can see it online, and if you have the pure calendar widget, tasks show up on the calendar

It seems that each note app has some features I like but not everything I want lol. Cool will download that than. I want the voice clips and check off option. Maybe of a lot of people request it, the developer will put a either option

Interesting, I'm using pure calendar widget but I don't want my notes and lists to go on there. Does it have voice clips attachment and a widget?

Edit: can't seem to find Google task on the market

Thanks,

Screeble looks promising. Keyring looks great! I have soooo many different cards that I just refuse to carry in my wallet, so every time I go to a store and they make me use a card I just signup for a new one.

I prefer Shop savvy over bar code scanner...I'm find with ads but for an app to 'read browser's history, bookmarks, read contact data, write contact data', I think that's a little bit TOO much.

An app called Delete Old Messages i think is a must have app.

It will delete messages that are over 1 month old, or whatever you set it to.

I think this is probably as important as clearing the cache once in a while to keep your eris running smoothly.

Swype is still in beta form, and is sold directly to the phone manufacturer. On their website, if you sign up, you can be beta tester, but that's closed The XDA forums have leaked versions of Swype that you can download.

Read the reviews for the new update and A LOT of people were complaning about no WW. I didn't update, if you can tell me how to send the .apk file, I can give it to you.

Oh dear...ADB for dummies is still confusing for my poor brain and it seems you need to root your device to install ADB...is there no app for this? XD I have my apps stored on my MicroSD card with Quick System Info app...I'm not sure but I thought I can access the .apk file from the backup folder?

ASTRO File Manager may work (I'm pretty confident that it will)

when you open it, you will have to:
1. push the "UP" button which will take you to the "root" folder (it will show only a "/" when you look at the top) of the phone.
2. click on the system folder
3. click on the app folder.
4. long press on the app you want to copy,
5. select edit,
6. select copy.
7. then push the "UP" button again til you get back to that "/" folder,
8. go to your SDCard,
9. click on edit (at the top)
10. then paste....
11.


otherwise, if they are already stored on the sdcard, just skip the steps i listed and upload the file in your next post (its under the "additional options") at the bottom of the page when you are replying to a message

Mine seem boring compared to others. And I'm trying not to repeat from other's posts:

Bump - Great for transfer pictures and contact info. I send pics to my IPod Touch, as well as my kids'.

Better Keyboard - I like that i can customize it so much. Got the Alabama Crimson Tide theme going now.

Pic Say - You should see the crazy bubble quotes I put on people's pics.

Smart Vibrator - My phone is ALWAYS set to vibrate. Now I can customize the vibrate to alert me as to if it's a text/call, and who's texting/calling.

Uninstaller - Makes it so much easier and quicker to uninstall useless apps.

Where - Locate places while I'm traveling

Air Horn - Use it to scare the crap outta my kids

Milage - Tracks my gas milage.

Seesmic - Best Twitter app for me, nice and easy

I saw someone mention in another thread the 2.1 gallery? What is it? I have looked in several places in the forums and can't find anything about it.

its much simpler than they are making it out.
go into astro and hit menu and go to tools.
go to app manager/backup
check the box for whichever app you want and hit backup.


now the apk is in a file called Backups on your SD card.
plug your phone into the computer and just drag and drop the file onto your desktop or wherever

Default Fav Apps

AppBrain

Auto Mount

Dolphin Browser - fairly easy browser to use. Really I'd love to see Chrome for Andorid. Is Google even working on this?

Google Sky Map - just fun.

Handcent SMS

Music Junk - not sure how it's legal, but it can find and play just about any song. Even an option to download.

PdaNet

Screebl - It keeps my screen from timing out based on the orientation of the phone, nice when the charger is plugged in and phone is in the holder in the car and i have Pandora playing or I'm using maps - don't have to keep turning on the phone to check the song/title or figure out where I am on the map.

Shazam

SMS Backup - All of my txt msg are backed up to my gmail acct. (Just added "Delete Old Messages", hope that the combo will keep my phone clean but at the same time I'll have access to all those old SMS messages if I ever need them.)

Smart Vibrator - The Eris seems to have a weak vibe, so adding a custom pattern seems to help me notice it a lot more.

Pandora

Gmail Unread Count - a widget that tells you how many unread emails are in you gmail acct.
