    Post must have Free Hero Android Apps here !!!!
    I thought I would start this thread to get some feedback from some of the Hero user, I suggest that we post the must have free Hero Android apps and why we like them and what they do [​IMG]

    How Far Am I
    This is a great little free app for the golf geeks which gives you the GPS distance from where you are to the center of the green

    Call Log Trimmer
    This is a another great free apps that trims your call logs to a manageable state and does not clog your phone up.

    Chomp SMS
    This a great little Text program that I find has a nicer UI that the default app and has many more options.

    Google Voice
    Nice little App that allows you to do free calls and text messages, to Canada and many other features.

    YouMail
    This is a App that allows you to customize voicemail recording to each individual contact you have set up in your list. and makes it propriatory to each user

    These are a few of may faves there are many more I have but I will allow others to post there and not take the limelight, lol

    There are a couple posts like this that have lists of apps. Search is your friend.

    For what it's worth, I knew of one such thread, yet when I typed "must have" in the search window, it returned NO results. Typing "apps" returned so many results it was a waste of time. The thread title is "Must have apps" So, I must say that many new folks here are faced with an overwhelming task when searching.

    May I suggest to all the forum regulars...rather than just suggesting "do a search" to a new question, or responding to a new poster that their issue has already been addressed, we post a link to the known thread, in addition to suggesting a search. I believe this will be a big benefit to all.

    DonB, here is one of the many "apps" threads for you. ;)

    Someone should make one of these a sticky. That way new users (and experienced users) would be able to just click the sticky and be able to see what apps are out there and to also add to the apps list.

    ColorNote Notepad - (built in reminder) - Love It!
    Calorie Counter - by FatSecret (barcode scanner makes the app)
    Latitude - Built into Google Maps

    My free apps must-have list is pretty short.

    Wifi Analyzer - great for checking wifi access points and signal strength
    EStrongs File Explorer - I like this better than Astro.
    MobisleNotes - great interface for note taking, and fantastic for making reusable checklists and grocery lists.

    But the absolute gem of all the free apps I've used is Shuffle. I've tried just about all of the to-do list managers available, including gTasks and Astrid. The only to-do manager I've used so far that is designed around GTD principles with a solid mix of power and ease-of-use is Shuffle.

    It's not free, but if you're willing to spend just a little bit to transform your Android home screen experience, go get the Pure Calendar Widget. I can't imagine using Android without this.

    Here are some of my favorites.

    AppBrain Market Sync - Looks at the apps that you have installed and reccomends others. Also lets you look at the most popular apps for the day... etc.

    Handcent SMS - Nice text and picture message app.

    OurGroceries - Nice grocery list app.

    Urbanspoon - Works like the iPhone version, you can lock in categories or locations, shake and it will recommend a restaurant.

    PhoneFlicks - allows me to manage my netflix queue.

    SMS Backup - backs up my sms messages to my gmail

    Sound Manager - lets me set sound settings based on time, this way my phone automatically goes to vibrate while I'm at work and turns back on afterwards.

    Gmail Unread Count - widget to put a count of gmail messages on the icon.

    Air Control - the current game I'm addicted to, try to land a bunch of planes without crashing them into each other.

    Ah, a fellow golfer ;). My experiences with "How Far Am I" are not that good, it keeps FC'ing on my Hero. Does it behave well on your Hero? I tried using Maps Ruler, but I find the GPS is too inaccurate to be of any help (besides, distances to the greens usually are fairly well marked in the course).
