    Hi,

    I'm interesting in buying a Samsung Galaxy but first I'd like to know if all Android apps are phone model independent? I know that all the cool custom ROM stuff from XDA Devs is HTC only but apps are not?

    Mostly, I mean Open Home, Unlock 2.0 and Better Keyboard with their skins.
    Same question goes about widgets.

    TIA,

    Embrion

    Hi there,

    Most applications are handset independent,

    Pays to try them though. Most of the open homes, Unlock etc have demos you can try,

    Also in the future, there may be issues with apps clashing with things like screen sizes... but for now, Motorolas and Samsungs seem to be fine,

    Looks like you are after the typical replacement apps,

    Julian

    Thanks for answer Julian.

    I don't have Android phone yet and I'm about to decide if Hero is worth spending more than Galaxy in terms of software availability. Now I see it doesn't as all other apps I'd like to use except I asked about are probably even more typical.

    Btw. it would be nice if Android 2.0 introduced generic multitouch, not just HTC custom one.

    Regards,
