    I upgraded to villain 5.2 today and I'm eager to check out the apps I've been missing whilst I was stuck on android 1.5
    So, what's the best 2.1 apps that people can recommend?
    I've got Google Goggles and seen the update to Maps to all navigation, but that's it really.

    Also, I've noticed that the battery widget supplied by HTC on the market is not 2.1 compatible. I went to install it and it throws out an error. Typical HTC

    The battery widget has never worked on any custom rom bar modaco for me :(

    JuiceDefender is useful, especially alongside screebl.

    Google goggles is fun to try out (although not too useful yet).

    Is this phone brilliant yes it is, Is it super fast not necessarily, however...

    I am currently sat waiting to attend an interview, I am wirelessly tethered to my hero via my vpn on works lappy, making calls and streaming last FM, I was guided here by google nav.

    Smart smart phone, all you haters get the iPhone out and try it..

    You don't see that many iPhone users spitting their bile about the Hero.

    The same can't said the other way around though ;)

    Maybe that's because their expectations aren't the same - all things with mass popularity (music ala x-factor comes to mind as well) are the same with users generally being less discerning (yourself excluded trick!):p

    Maybe coz they are choking on their bile ;)

    Joking apart each to their own

    Google maps is cool, also the RAC stuff intergrated into it works a treat...

    Here's a thought.... how about users take a moment to think before starting yet another 2.1 (or whatever) thread? Merging threads can be necessary but it wrecks the flow of the merged threads so we do it sparingly. ;)

    I've been saying that for a while, almost every week there has been a new 2.1 thread with more & more rumours. Theres no need for it though.

    [smug mode]Anyway. Absolutely loving 2.1 [/smug mode]

    try out the starfeild live wallpaper free in market.. works very well and looks so cool

    and replica islandis a great game for free.

    having the option to make a bluetooth folder for recived files is pure genius..every home screen should have one..

    simon

    p.s. aidan257 your software number in your sig is wrong.. your on 2.2 not 2.02 bud..:D

    edit the matrix live wallpaper is even cooler
