    Google Skymap has got to be the coolest app I have ever used. Hold it up to the sky and it has the stars and planets labeled as you see them.

    TouchDown works great as an Exchange/Active Sync program (way better than the OS email/exchange app.)

    I know it is part of the new OS, but the Google Maps Navigation is also really slick. I just got a MotoDroid along with the car cradle and I just drop it in touch the voice search button and say "navigate to Piggly Wiggly" (grocery store) and it brings it up on a map for me to verify the destination, then I can select navigate and it starts mapping and telling me how to get there. It even reroutes as soon as it realizes that you have strayed from the original route and when you arrive, it switches automatically to street view so you can compare your surroundings to a 360 degree on-screen view.

    Great news, we updated ShopSavvy over the weekend and it is now supporting both the Verizon Droid and Android 2.0. The fix means ShopSavvy works almost as well on the Droid as it does on the HTC devices. Once Motorola updates their camera firmware it should work perfectly.

    We recognize that as more and more phones are released ShopSavvy (and any app that scans a barcode) will need to be tweaked to accommodate different frame rates and focal lengths. We have decided to port our iPhone scanning library (i.e. allowing for blurry barcode scanning) to Android. Once we update ShopSavvy to include 'meatloaf' (this is the name of our scanning software) it should work on ANY Android phone that has a camera (knock on wood).

    Anyway, enjoy ShopSavvy on your Droid - I am...

    I am not a ShopSavvy user so why the comment then?

    Well I like to pass on good stories. I was in a toy store this weekend and a man was jumping around like Will Ferrell in Elf, giddy with excitement.

    The first thing I noticed after I looked past his tights (jk) was his android phone. Cool I thought. Then I realized he was using a scanning app to scan prices and commenting to his wife about each item he was scanning.

    She finally said to him, "that's a cool app but we really don't need all these great buys."

    He replied, "I know, but ShopSavvy is the coolest app in the world, I love it. I just love it."

    I smiled.

    I had no idea you hung out on AF and hope your team is inspired by this funny but true story. Elf 2, product placement opportunity anyone? Keep up the great work!

    Wrong generation. It never even crossed my mind to pull out my G1 and nab him in action.

    DockRunner for the Motorola Droid is great. Enables you to use the Alarm Clock mode without spending the $30 on the docking station.

    Searched real quickly through here and I saw some posts on SMS Pop Up....The best app I have downloaded so far that has gotten the most use is Handcent SMS. By far the BEST add text app out there for the Android phones.

    dont have my droid yet but what would happen if you had CHomp SMS and Handcent SMS both on your phone? Does it cause a problem?

    I haven't been particularly impressed by most of default apps or the more popular market apps. Most are missing one feature or another compared to their non-mobile counterparts. However, one app that continues to impress is Google Sky Map. Standing out in the back yard having a beer and being able to figure out which planet you're looking at instantly is just awesome.

    You would just get notifications from both unless you disabled one of them. I personally like Handcent better.

    My most used app is Bar Control. Bar Control allows you to put links to apps in the notification bar (status bar). This allows you to switch to your most used apps quicker without going to the home screen.

    I agree.. frequent updates, allows texting to groups, recent and whole contacts list as you browse.

    Many other tweaks too... like changing freq and color of led etc.

    voice to text.

    Also allow long texts and puts in 160 character clumps and then sends whole message seamlessly.
