Default Must-Have apps for the EVO 3D

I posted this in the Introduction forum and was suggested to create a thread in this forum because there wasn't one. so here goes.

I have already began to peruse the android market website and have decided that i will undoubtedly be getting the following:

Google Maps
Facebook
Youtube
Pandora
Angry Birds
Task Killer
Flash Player
Tiny Flashlight (hopefully i can decide upon if i want to use both LED's on the EVO 3D)
Movies (Flixster)
GasBuddy
Paper Toss

i would love a recommendation on a good app that can track my phone if it is lost, hopefully flashed to the system so a thief can't turn it off.

I hope to also root my phone so i can remove bloatware, and get free tethering.
other apps i hope to add:

a keyboard of some sort (Swype, T9, ect. ect.)
music player (iSync, Google Music Beta, PowerAMP, Audio Galaxy)


any suggestions; Games, System Apps, Widget Apps, ect. ect.

i read through the keyboard discussion in the apps sub-forum and it seems like the opinions are all over the place for those apps.

Lookout has been a nice app. It gives you a number of different options if you lose your phone including location or wiping.

Swype is a great keyboard. Hands down.

Tweetdeck if you do anything with twitter and facebook

Amazon appstore you will have to download and install through your SD card because it can't be found in the market but Amazon gives a free paid app every day. Have gotten some decent apps through that.

Beyondpod for anything with podcast or blogs

Pulse has a good setup for multiple news sources in one place

Movies for just that

Docs if you do anything with google documents

Dropbox is a very easy to use cloud manager

TuneIn gives you lots of radio channels including local

Pandora is well liked by people

WallSwitch
Its a wallpaper utility that cycles through your entire folder of wallpapers/pictures. Its almost like a live wallpaper if you set it to change your static wallpapers every minute. First Android application I ever downloaded and still one of the best.

We have an app just for our forums - please check it out -

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.blau.android.phandroidnews

Tapatalk is great - don't get me wrong - but we wanted an app based on user input for just our site.

On the idea of locking out your phone from the bad guys if lost/stolen -

Lookout is great, I personally use EStrongs Security Manager -

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.estrongs.android.safer

Please check out both, choose what's right for you.

~~~~~~~

Finally - and I can't stress this enough for people with many or complex contacts -

Google Gesture Search

No way I'll ever own another Android phone without it!

Tasker

I also love Pulse, and Springpad for news and notes.

Wapedia is an awesome wikipedia app, better than the official one.

And depending on if I like Sense or not, I'll probably get ADW EX or just flash it to CM7/MIUI.

Oh, and JuiceDefender.

ADW Launcher is a must for me. You can do so many tweaks and customizations. It has a handy save and restore feature too.

I'd be interested in this app if I didn't keep my machine off at home to conserve power. So Google Music it is. Such a shame, because the GMusic player is horrifically bare-boned.

Oh another thing every Android user should have:

Google Authenticator

Considering that your Google account is everything to your phone (contacts, calendar, personal info), it really makes sense to activate the 2-click verification. It's really easy to set up. It takes 5-10 mins. Just log into your Gmail, go to Account Settings and it's right there in the security options.

You should look into subsonic. Requires $10 'donation' after 30 days though. This app allows you to queue songs up that are d/led to your sd card. Or you could leave the laptop on at times for streaming.

Audiogalaxy also allows you to stream from other ppls' servers if they make their server public.

Hmm...AudioGalaxy lets you stream from other's public servers? That right there is enough reason for me to give it a shot, just to try to find some new artists/albums I may like. Although, I question if that's legal to do. It seems like it would fall under a broadcasting law and have a license requirement/loyalty payment.

Yes, correct. Recently the push began in congress to make that a federal felony with a 10 year imprisonment price tag.

I am not making that up.

If that law passes, expect the landscape of sharing to change radically, again.

I thought that was the whole issue with imbedding youtube videos in webpages (that are not youtube)? Or is the youtube thing a specific issue that is included in that?

Not totally sure of the legality so you may be right. it doesn't use the standard app when you stream someone else's music. It loads to youtube or your internet browser to play. With that said I let one of my friend have the password to my account as well as my fiance so they have access to my server through the app.

I like the Congress app and Politico. Great for quick reading if you're in doctor's office lounge area or waiting at the kids practice, lol.

I second this.

A month or so ago my gmail was 'hacked' in to and they sent a bunch of spam to my entire contact list. Even after changing the password they were still able to get in.

Now with the Google Authenticator the problem is gone. Too many hoops for them to jump through.

In some states, this is illegal, FYI. I think PA just adopted it. The issue came up with Netflix. Now Netflix only allows streaming to one device/machine at a time to avoid the legal headaches.

So I would keep that info close.

Edit: Which makes me think that Google Music is going to be smacked here in the relatively near future for the same reason.

Youtube doesn't stand out in my memory, I'll have to go back and read.

I'd like to put in my suggestion for best keyboard: SwiftKey

It's a normal qwerty keyboard that accurately predicts what word you are going to type next, or guesses it after just one or two letters. it learns from all the text messages you send.

One of my favourite apps because it just makes typing soo much quicker. I much prefer it to swype!

When I played with the Nexus S earlier last week it had a keyboard on it that did something very similar. It was so fast & smart I found that I wasn't missing Swype at all.

Google Music will make Audiogalaxy obsolete. Trust me, it's incredible.

I'm not really sure how it could blow it out of the water unless the player has some crazy nice features. Audiogalaxy has been around a long time so I don't think it'll ever be obsolete espcially being free. You also don't need an invite of any sort to enjoy the service. With that said some of the features of Subsonic have me using it as well and I actually paid for that app. The cool features about subsonic include streaming personal videos from your server, streaming your music with several different bitrate options, queuing up songs in advance that are loaded to SD card and customizable streaming options. At the end of the day if the google app turns out to be a keeper then I'll probably use all 3 apps.

There are pros and cons to each system. Everyone who wants to stream their own music to their devices should check out both (given you get an invite to GMusic) and see what fits their own style the best. For some, it'll be AudioGalaxy. Others, GMusic. It's the same argument that we toss back and forth for many different products/services.

I really like Pandora Radio. Maybe I'm new to the Android world but I even listen to Pandora on my PC. I like it a lot.

I finally got my google music beta invite. I think I requested it over two months ago. I have about 5k songs. 13 hours later it's not even half way uploaded. Hopefully they'll work that kink out. Couple the cloud with the google android music player and it's a nice app. It still has some work to do before it's on the auidogalaxy and subsonic level, but I will continue to use along with those apps.

The 3D is supposed to have some nice task killer built into Sense Tres punto cero. And a cool multitasker as well.

I really like Swiftkey, but for some reason it always crashes a lot in firefox and just browsers in general.

Android has included a decent way to kill the occasionally misbehaving app.

We're not referring to that - we're referring to the scourge of Android and the bane of our existence - the automated task killer.

I like Screen Lock/Off. Just enabled the animations with the app the other day. Figured I would try something new and it made me say dang. This phone is unbeatable in regard to customizing the OS. I think its so freaking cool how the phone goes to sleep now. It can turn off like a tv screen, fade out, or roll out. Also, there are like 15 other ways for the phone to animate itself as it is about to go to sleep. That app should be standard on the Android OS. Its awesome to watch the live wallpaper called Solar Wind on my phone "tv out" the phone to sleep.

Live Wallpaper favs: Solar Wind, Vortex Galaxy, and 3D FireFlies, and Rays of Light.
