Default Recent Converts, where to turn?

So I'm an obsessive gamer who always have to have ALL the platforms (OK, maybe not all...I didn't have a 3DO) - I feel like I never wanna miss anything.

Now that I've got my hands on the sweet sweet droidings, I'm kind of at a loss for where to turn.

I get all the iCrap and how to use it and where to do things, and I keep hearing how much more customizable and delightful Droids are...

I guess I'm most interested in doing all the things I couldn't do with my iPhone - which reminds me - does anyone know any good EXCLUSIVE GAMES that are DROID ONLYYYYY?!

Oh I guess I should specify, I have a Galaxy S2 Tablet!!!

Hey HamsterPants, welcome to Android Forums!

I'm not sure of any android only apps (I'm sure there are some, I just don't know of them)...

If you're into networking, you can do some pretty cool (geeky) stuff with a rooted android device. You can use wifi analyzer to see near wifi networks and their strength (which is pretty cool).

Hope that helps!

Oh thanks! That does sound kinda neat!

I dunno about rooting my device... I'm not very confident with stuff like that. In my younger... more... scandalous days, I might be caught with an R4, but never a hacked PSP (if you get the implication). But those days are behind me and I'm on the up and up now... mostly...

Thanks. That's greatly appreciated.

Right now, I'm curious about getting a spiffy avatar image like you. Is it a simple thing I can change or do I have to "level up" in this forum.

I get that, rooting is a little scary, but it is on the 'up and up' 100%. It just gives you 'root' (administrative, super user) access to your device. For networking, this allows you to install applications that change the wifi mode (ie: promiscuous mode )...

I'm not 100% sure, but I think all users can have an avatar. It should be in the User CP (if memory serves me correctly) under something like 'avatar image' or something like that.

Hope that helps.

- oh, and if you do decide to root your device, I'm sure that there is an 'All Things Root' guide in your device's sub-forum.
