    this is the thing, everyone has a different definition of "must have" so eventually every app in the market will be posted here...

    Not really. Because the market store isn't as good as the Iphones market store for searching I think doing it this way will help people get some good apps. I feel like even though everyone has a different definition people will still only post useful, good apps on here.

    Gameboid. Tilting Mario around the screen with the accelerameter is killer.

    did you buy or are you using lite

    where did you get the games.


    as for this thread. It is just a good insight what apps people are using no harm in posting must have apps.

    as for the battery widget. I notice that when i had it my battery was draining out faster. Since then i deleted it and my battery is lasting longer

    I started out using lite, with which you can use in game saves and everything works. GBA games are made for mobile, so most of them have pretty reasonable save points. (The SNES Final Fantasy games ported to GBA added save anywhere for example)

    Then I decided to buy the paid version for even more save options and to support the developer. I got the games just Googling for them.

    I want an app that will help me identify trees. Just photos of overall tree shape, bark, and leaves. Maybe categorized by area.

    Ultimate would be to take a photo (or point camera) at a tree feature and have it identified.

    Make that app.

    few of the first post mention Toggle Settings and say it is a APP manager. Is it like ATK or TK? Does is drain battery?

    Long list of stuff up there. The most useful one I have installed for customization is Ring Extender.
    It allows me to assign any sound I have to my incoming text messages and notifications so I know who is texting me.
    It does not show up as an app so there will not be an icon for it. To use it,
    press menu/settings/sound and display/phone ringtone or notification ringtone. A pop up will ask what program to use, choose rings extended. You will have access to other ringtones, mp3 files, or sounds that you have on your SD Card.
    If you have a 3rd party text like chompSMS, you will have to customize the sounds through that application.

    yes it is there. I got it installed.

    But how do you assign different notifications for text messages? I want different ones for different people.

    For Bloo are you guys using the free version? And also, does it allow Facebook chat?

    I'm surprised no one here mentioned "Robo Defense" (Game). So fun, I bought the full version and I rarely purchase games.

    Make sure you follow these directions. If you try to open it, it will just give you an error screen.
    To use it, after it is installed...
    From the Home screen - press menu>settings>sound and display>phone ringtone or notification ringtone. A pop up will ask what program to use, choose rings extended. You will have access to other ringtones, mp3 files, or sounds that you have on your SD Card.
    If you have a 3rd party text like chompSMS, you will have to customize the sounds through that application.
