    Does no one like the swype keyboard? Its pretty cool when you get used to it. Anyway, some cool apps I like are pulse, usa today, imdb is a must for movie buffs, engadget, and theres one called hot apps that you shake your phone to find random apps. You never know what you're gonna find!

    I like the swype keyboard. But I notice my teenage children don't.

    LauncherPro gives you the ability to customize your home screens in a way that the stock does not.

    You will have smoother scrolling and more icon an dock options.

    I'm not sure if the phone actually does perform better with LP but it definitely gives one the illusion of better performance.

    It's very easy to work with and gives the appearance of having a new phone basically.

    Alright everyone, let's hear it. What are your top 5 favorite apps? Rooted or unrooted, doesn't matter (just remember to say if you are or are not rooted:))

    My top 5 have to be:

    GO SMS
    MP3 Music Download

    I am unrooted by the way.

    Ditched LauncherPro for GO Launcher.
    Dumped Handcent for GO SMS.
    Got rid of Juice Defender! (it was draining my battery! LOL)

    Oh jeeze, I totally forgot about this one before posting my own 'top 5 apps' thread.

    No probs! The Mods will probably merge it! :)

    Any ways, I really like smart keyboard PRO. It has a lot of customizing options, like iphone/htc/android skins for the keyboard. You can make it transparent/translucent/ opaque, whatever you desire! :)

    Call up the mod who transported the ascend lounge! We need to merge! Haha

    I like it too. :)

    But I'm using Keypurr and Ultra. Keypurr is really different. They have a trial version until Feb 28th. You should try it just to see what I'm talking about.

    Keypurr has a thread here too with a tech that answers questions. That's worth a lot right there! :)

    I just tried it. It's certainly different! :) I actually wouldn't mind paying for the full version. It's deadly accurate!
  16. SuperUser
    Root Explorer
    Terminal Emulator

    With these I can take over the AOSP world muhahahaaa.

    Really? I love it too! Love the big keys and can't get over how amazing it is in prediction. You can save your passwords with the function keys too and makes it really easy!

    Is the "Twitter" app the best Twitter app for this phone? There are others out there like TweetDeck, etc. I have seen some pretty bad reviews on "Twitter". I do have a Twitter account but didnt know which version is the best out there for the Ascend.

    Which version of Better Keyboard do I go with? Better Keyboard 7 or 8? And do I have to pay for the full version for it to be useful or can I just keep the free version and still be satisfied with it?

    How do you do this
  21. CRUMBsnatcher

    CRUMBsnatcher Well-Known Member

    Not sure about that one. I tried better keyboard and didn't really like it, so I opted for the PRO version if Smart keyboard. I've heard good things about better keyboard though. As I recall, the difference between 7 and 8 is what version of android you have. Although, I could be wrong.

    It's not too bad. There certainly are better twitter apps out there, but i don't care enough to check them out :).

    Hey Cards! Best way to find out if to try the free trial. LOL That's what I do. Actually the Twitter widget works pretty good for me. :)

    Something I discovered a couple days ago on LauncherPro: Modify the number of rows, and number of columns. Go to Menu>Preferences>Homescreen Settings, you will find the two aforementioned options near the bottom of the list.

    I personally love the ability to add columns, and now have 5 columns per screen without any reduction in icon size. I did find a caveat to raising the number of rows, however, and this is the fact that part of the name of each icon gets cut off.

    Either way, for those of you who wished you could have more icons per homescreen, now you can!

    Addition to my five: I realized I use the TV guide app a lot.
