    Hello all,

    I just got the incredible last night. I used to have the BlackBerry 8330 Curve from verizon. I am not missing it as of now since this phone is super fast.

    what are some apps or programs i should install on here or do?

    I did the latest update on the OS software last night after i got home from the store.

    My votes (& I'm sure I'll forget some must haves):

    - Handcent SMS
    - Pandora
    - MixZing
    - Appbrain
    - LauncherPro
    - Google Voice
    - Google Maps
    - TiKL

    That should help get you started. I would also browse appbrain.com from your PC to get an idea of the more popular apps

    app brain, and then check out the apps thread. They have a lot of good things to update you.

    Bank of america has a nice banking app if you have them.
    I prefer Chomp over Handscent, but many people will disagree
    If you want a custom clock get beautiful widgets
    News= Feedr, NY times app, Huffington Post, and for you right wingers there is a fox app as well.
    Twitter- The stock is nice, but if you use launcher pro you will need to get something non stock... my favorite is Touiteur. However the one I hear the most about is tweetdeck
    Engadget- If you own this phone and don't know what engadget is.... /facepalm
    Movies- Queue Man, least buggy netflix app (for me) IMDB, Flixter is good for movie times
    Where- decent app
    Dolphin Browser- IMO best browser next to stock
    Weather- weather bug- paid gives you a nice widget
    Calendar Pad- My favorite calendar widget, but there are many others
    Word Wise= Word with friends
    Angry Birds
    Bonsai Blast

    Dude there are so many.... have fun.

    Root your phone, save yourself the trouble of agonizing waiting for OTA updates.
    Virtuous ROM gives you nice stock with extras.

    Root:
    Titanium Back up pro
    Rom Manager
    SetCPU
    Root Exporer (file manager system)

    I can keep going....

    But I dont want to....

    Please thank me :)

    Congrats on the Incredible. I too was a Curve user for about 4 years prior to getting my first droid. I'd say my top 5 apps are

    Handscent SMS
    Zedge
    WiFi Analyzer
    Angry Birds
    Pandora

    Good luck and enjoy :)

    FYI It's against forum policy to talk about and/or help someone get swype. Long story short, I switched android devices and lost my swype. I posted the same question you asked and got a warning from a Mod that this was unacceptable. Just a heads up is all

    TASKER! (if you dont mind paying for an app and spending a few HOURS learning how to use it, tasker is a must have).

    Here is what I do with tasker:

    1. Single icon to speak current temp, weather, hi/low, and wind
    2. Recursive menus for my games. 1 icon on home screen opens to a menu of "puzzle games", "skill games", "arcade games", "card games"... each of these open to the respective menu with a button to go back to previous menu. All my ames are 3 easy touches away using only 1 spot and no scrolling.
    3. automatically silences all thing on my phone during church time and turns them back on after church.
    4. turns on wifi when I get home and off when I leave
    5. when I plug in power, gives me option of home mode, sleep mode, or car mode. example: car mode turns on speakerphone or bluetooth and turns ringer up.
    6. if I send a specific SMS to my phone, it will turn on gps find the location of phone, and text a link to a map showing the location of my phone.
    7. Talking clock..... says the time

    It can do MUCH MUCH more. these are just a few examples


    other apps:

    Launcher pro PLUS
    apps organizer
    edwin text to speech
    widget locker (customize lock screen)
    Bible
    tweetdeck (twitter and facebook)
    Jorte calendar
    PowerAMP (music player)
    TV listings
    ebo birthday - psyncs facebook and contacts bdays and anniv and had a widget notifiying you of upcoming ones
    astrid tasks widget
    ESPN scorecenter
    yahoo fantasy football (if you are in yahoo league)
    patriots (new england) official app

    games I like: mPuzzle for math games/sudoku and other versions)
    coloroid
    Shortyz (crossword puzzles)
    Yahtc classic
    cribbage pro
    backgammon
    criticality
    angry birds
    trap
    droid mini golf
    lets golf
    fruit ninja
    air control
    full tilt rush poker
    uno
    Live poker
    patience revisited

    There are many more I use. I just ran out of energy!

    Swype is in closed beta (hence, why it would be against forum rules as they have sent out C&D letters to all parties involved in the distribution of their app as they have threatened legal action), so the only way you can get it is by signing up on their website.
