MoboPlayer, but not sure if it supports streaming.

For more on FoxFi vs Sprint, let's take it over here - http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-4g-lte/562546-foxfi-htc-evo-4g-lte.html

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OK, my app pick - QuickDesk BETA.

Double tap the Home button, a translucent overlay comes up over your running app and allows you to swap to something else - it supports apps, and many widgets or shortcuts, and you configure what you like.



If you swipe up at the bottom of the screen, you get a left-right slider for your recent apps -



Pretty handy, and yep, the hidden Mirror app shows up in the list of app choices and it works.

Launches with its own set of instructions.

edit - I was moving so quick, I forgot to add above and also mention - Radar Now - this is indispensable when you need a real-time look at weather radar without a lot of muss and fuss.



By the way, when you switch apps this way, when you exit the app you switched to, you come back to the app you were in originally.

Example, I can be web browsing, get to Radar Now via QuickDesk, and when I exit, I'm back at my browser.

I've long considered this the missing link in Android for multitasking.

Yep, it matters to me, that's why I asked.


I like Raindar better.

I didn't bother before, just took his word for it but I just checked hbogo.com and in fact the sign up box shows TWC as a listed provider you can use. Not sure why it wouldn't work for him.

This is weird.... I switched to the stock keyboard again and went into Handcent and the cursor keys weren't there now. With the stock keyboard enabled I then went to the stock messaging app and the arrows were there... then I switched back to the Swype keyboard, then back to the stock keyboard, went into Handcent, the arrows are there again.

Good thing I don't use the arrow/cursor keys because it would drive me bonkers if they came and went like this.

(I just saw this and thought it was cute, has nothing to do with the conversation)

I do miss pop up texts though.

For Browsers, after my memory starting running thin on the Evo, I removed them all, but now that I have room to spare on the LTE, I'm going to have to give them a shot.

Contact photos show just fine for me in Handcent. If you mean pulling in profile photos from Facebook, there's a fix for that if you're rooted here: Pocketables Get back your missing Facebook contact pics on your rooted HTC EVO 4G LTE
I haven't tried it yet so I can't vouch for how well it works.

FYI, for anyone that is wondering, Swype has, and has always had (as far back as I can remember using it), arrow keys. However, they are difficult to find if you don't know how to get there.

To access the arrow keys on Swype:
While you have the keyboard open, hit the button the transfer over to the number keyboard (123 / +!=), that key will then change to (Edit / ABC), now press and hold that button for 2secs. And there they are.

Big screen makes a great book reader, I can't recommend Mantano enough.

I think I will give Xscope another go.

If you use multiple browsers Choose Browser is a must have.

Why not?

If you've lost it while, say, out on a date and don't recall where you last had it why couldn't you zero in on it with google maps then go there and ring it?

I like being able to remotely lock it first, and maybe even call myself with it to see what's going on in the background. Not to mention, Cerberus acts as a device administrator, so it can't be removed from the phone without a password.

Also, since Cerberus is a root app, you can remotely turn on GPS/Wifi as well for fine tune location instead of relying on the cell network.

I've tried Jeannie (aka Voice Actions), Vlingo (quite a while ago), Skyvi, and just recently, Eva. They're all really interesting but I didn't find any of them good enough for me to keep them on my phone. Mostly I'd use an app like that right now for incoming/outgoing texts while driving, otherwise I can look anything else up myself (when not driving ) and don't really feel the need for an app to do that for me.

  • Jeannie was amusing to argue with but didn't seem to have the capability yet to read incoming texts, although I really like how she works for sending outgoing texts. She always confirms "really say 'hey how's it going?' to Abe Lincoln?" before sending the text. This app has a few options to customize, simple to use.
  • I tried Vlingo quite a while ago so maybe I should try it again since I don't remember anything specific & I'm sure it's been updated, the only thing I remember is that it didn't impress me for my uses at the time.
  • Skyvi can both read incoming and send outgoing texts but I hate the way it just sends off a text (which might have totally the wrong words if it didn't hear you correctly ) or makes you look at the screen to confirm it before sending. Kind of defeats the purpose of being hands-free. This app has hardly any options at all, very simple.
  • I just tried Eva after my brother kept telling me how great it is - it does seem to be a much more comprehensive assistant app but she irritated the #$%@ out of me by not being able to understand most of what I said, when other personal assistant apps and google voice understand me just fine. I uninstalled to keep from chucking my phone at the wall from frustration with that, no idea what the issue was but I didn't want to deal with it. This app has a TON of options, it almost seems too complicated for the average user.

That's exactly what I love about alarm clock extreme; I tend to be one of those people who can just turn off the alarm in my sleep & have no idea I did it, so having to do math - although I pick the EASY math problems - works awesome for me. I suck at math when I'm wide awake so easy math problems are hard enough first thing in the morning, I have it set to solve 3 before I can turn it off or snooze.

I recently tried them too, and it's really getting on my nerves. All I want is one of these apps that will connect through my bluetooth headset. I can use my bluetooth to activate each of these, however none of them will listen through my bluetooth mic! No matter how they are activated, they all listen through the phone's mic... except for the native voice search... but the native voice search is entirely too limited for my needs.

Does anyone have a recommendation for one that actually utilizes bluetooth for voice commands?

Have you tried Tasker? I have many many many uses for Tasker, and among them is phone location.

I can text a keyword to my phone, from any other cell phone, and my phone will automatically turn on its GPS and find its location, moving speed, and battery life... then text all that information back to me, including a link to google maps to pull up a visual of the location (send this to whatever number I texted from), then turn the GPS back off to conserve battery life (granted, the GPS option isn't currently available on stock ICS phones since google locked it out).

It's fully customizable, where I could also have it lock my phone, or turn on an alarm so I can hear it, or call me back so I can listen to what's happening around my phone.

This isn't specific to the LTE, but Subsonic is an app i use daily for my media server at the house. I used to know why i preferred it over Google Music or whatever, but now i'm not quite sure. Guess it's just a geekier way of streaming music...

Plus you don't have to duplicate your music onto the Google servers.

Also, does anyone know of an app that I can use to condense my cloud streaming services? I want to be able to stream music from both my Google Play and Amazon MP3 accounts using a single app, but I have yet to find anything that supports both (or maybe I have but I don't know how to work the app, since I've tried 3-4 of them so far).

Thanks for any help in this matter!

It may not be the answer, but if you're interesting in streaming from your home server and cutting out the middleman, check out Subsonic.

PS as a general comment - for a video player, MoboPlayer is still my fave, Meridian for just music, your mileage may vary.

I've really enjoyed this thread.

My top apps (in no particular order):
-Chrome (browser)
-NFC Task Launcher (NFC tag reader/writer)
-Cheezeburger (Meme viewer)
-Google Reader (Blog reader)
-Google Drive (Online documents)
-Spotify (Internet radio)
-Sat Track (satellite tracker)

These are probably the apps I use the most. They are functional for me, not just novelty.

"Sprint data overage bill" Getting a sudden monster phone bill sucks.
Pay the $30 bucks IMHO.

Mentioning illegal apps w/o a disclaimer or fair warning...not cool IMHO
I would hate for a member get nailed like my co-worker did. (just say'n)
What sucks even worse is when you are doing the right thing and Sprint takes away your unlimited hotspot plan that you are paying for and now "can't get it back". See my thread on Sprint frustrations. This is what drives people to go around their restrictions. If it wasn't for this bait and switch I would be posting about the apps I use on my new LTE

FoxFi isn't illegal, but some uses of it are against your contract's terms of service, so be warned that like in many places in life, trying to get something for nothing doesn't always work out.

AndroidForums.com never condones illegal acts.

I do share the frustration of trying to get something for something and getting the runaround though, but as stated, that's a topic for another thread.

Cheers, thanks for your ears!

I had Iris before but then I found speak to it assistant and it's my favorite. Skyvi sounds cool but I don't really need to try another since I like speak to it so well. But the apps I have on my phone are.

Dolphin Browser and I've had X-Scope and Miren in the past but I don't want to overload my phone with all these apps that do the same thing but I think I'll get Chrome I have it on my tablet.

Games- Word with Friends Hanging and Scramble with Friends,Dice With Buddies. I play those all the time.

Out of Milk Grocery App

Fox Fi worked ok for me with my Transformer Prime but have only used it twice in the car on an hour road trip. I'm mostly always somewhere with wifi

Sprint Users App, XDA App,

Zedge

Flixter

Netflix

Sprint TV

Caller ID Faker ( I call people from 867-5309 all the time too funny)

Desk Top Plus this phone has no app called Dock like the 3D for when you docked it in a home dock.

Android Assistant (It lets you control ringtone and notification volume separately and does more)

Get Glue

Yahoo Messenger

NFC Task Launcher (Just paid for last night but my tags it's not working right)

Beat The Traffic

Astro File Manager

I heart Radio, Tune in Radio Pro and Sirius Radio

Handcent

(I want to try Vlingo again so it can read my text and I want to be able to speak things like send text to or call so and so and have it go through my Jawbone Era. Now when I hold down the button it brings up google voice search but it usually doesn't work while i'm driving and I don't think my voice is going through my headset.

I use Bluetooth launcher to make Google voice search come up when I hold down my bluetooth button. But like i said I don't think it is taking your voice through the headset and google voice had never worked well for me while driving.

Amazon free app of course

Tango & Fring for video calling.

Starbucks card

Gas Buddy

Speed Test

Beautiful Widgets

Pic Say Pro and Photo Funia

Tweet Caster Pro

Speak to it assistant too cool

Tiny Call Confirm

Car Home Ultra for my car dock

Foursquare

Ok I have more but that's most of them. I like seeing what everyone has.

I've tried Skyvi, Jeannie, & Vlingo - they all have their pros and cons; my brother swears Eva is the best but I haven't tried that one. I still have Jeannie installed just because it's amusing, it's still a work in progress - but it's free entertainment when I'm feeling bored

I used to love astro but not long ago I needed to move some files and it would not work for nothing and I ended up loosing a lot of stuff. Found x-plore and that is great. Very easy to use and move files around.

This game looks awesome!

I initially just dumped about 5 GBs worth of music on my SD and was interested to see how it would all be sorted and arranged. Wow, was I pleased with what I saw. It's very intutitive (unlike the infamous "i" music program). I really like how it organizes your music (and other music related apps) and how it explodes/shrinks albums down grapically. The incorporation of SoundHound is crazy too...one click and you're watching the lyrics auto-scroll in front of you on most songs while you're listening. Along with beats Audio, HTC killed it with this one IMO. Well done! Adios PowerAmp and WinAmp (with it's stupid placement of the delete button that they never fixed..always fun deleting songs accidentally).

iTunes??? bahhaaahhhaaahaaaa...what a POS relic (they actually have iTunes classes at Apple stores...lamest program ever)

Oh yeah, Let's Golf 3 is insane on ELTEVO!

Has anyone used Lama? I currently use Timeriffic to turn certain settings off & on automatically & it works pretty well (except for any time I deviate from my normal schedule...) but I just read about Lama in another thread & it uses cell towers? Sounds interesting. (I know Tasker is supposed to be pretty great but I think that might be way over my head!)

I haven't tried Lama.

I suggest that you try going to the Tasker app on the market, then from there going to the developer's website. On that website there is a trial version of the app (one or two weeks). That way you can give it a shot and decide for yourself whether it would be over your head without paying anything.

You could also consider Locale. It works like Tasker, but it's much more user friendly, but also much more expensive (Locale requires paid plugins in order to gain the same functionality that is included in Tasker).
