    I really enjoyed the Movies App from Flixster - but since the update it hasnt been working.

    but..

    -Bonsi Blast - Greatt game to pass some time
    -Advanced Task Killer - Works perfect for me, Ends Applications that are running in the background
    -i Music - Best Music app - Allows you to download MP3 for free
    -Shaazam - Displays song titles for the unknown - works awesome with i Music
    -Sports Tap - has a great widget that allows you to just show your current fav team (i have bruins, shows live game score in widget and also sends alerts during game to your notifcation bar)

    i would like to hear what you guys have or think is a useful/great app

    Dolphin is more like Firefox. It has tabbed browsing, uses gestures, has theme support, all kinds of cool stuff. It's definitely a better browsing experience than browser.

    how long would you recommend a ringtone to be/how long does it take for a phone call to go to voicemail? 30 secs? i just got ringdroid and trying to figure it out. i don't want to have it too long, or too short lol.

    I usually go with 20 - about 35 seconds, whatever sounds best for the song. The time it takes to go to voice mail varies because the phone could actually be "ringing" for several seconds before your phone starts ringing.

    My personal favorites are listed in my signature with Ringdroid being my all time favorite so far, but I reserve the right to change my mind in the future! :D

    Ringdroid is great...now if only they could make an app to force this wimpy little guy to vibrate a LITTLE more noticeably. Not used to missing calls when set to vibrate in my pocket, lol.

    There is an app in the marketplace called "smart vibrator" that does seem to change the vibration pattern for calls & sms when the phone is in vibrate mode. I have just played with it a bit...

    My phone seems to stop ringing at about 18.5 seconds, so I have been making my custom ring tones exactly 18.5 seconds long.

    I think there is an app that lets your ringtone play as long as you want, but I imagine the call still goes to voice mail at 18.5 seconds even with that app installed.

    1. Bluetooth File Transfer
    2. Astro File Manager
    3. NAV4 All - Free turn by turn
    4. My Coupons
    5. Key Ring - Saves your discount cards like Safeway as a barcode you can scan
    6. Craigsphone
    7. Listen - Google Inc. app. Great for Talk Radio
    8. Where - This puts a lot of apps in one so it's really the best one out there IMHO.
    9. Pandora Radio
    10. DroidLive - just because it ties to Shoutcast.
    11. Google Voice - Sign up to be a tester. You won't regret it.
    12. PDF Gview
    13. Metal Detector
    14. 10001 Cocktails
    15. Free Dictionary Org
    16. QIK - LIVE VIDEO STREAMING FROM YOUR PHONE (awesome app)
    17. Barcode Scanner - I keep a shortcut link to Google products to use the barcode scanner to search products versus shopsavvy.
    18. Shazam - Useful when a song is playing and you don't know what the name is, it can tell you.
    19. Advanced Task Killer
    20. Facebook for Android - maybe the web version is better.
    21. eBuddy - Not available for Verizon people YET, much better than meebo or Fring (Crap)

    I agree that the web version is better. I put a web shortcut on my home screen instead of the actual app. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the Facebook mobile web page, there's an option for "touch site." Switch to that. The best Facebook option for Android in my opinion.

    Any other EMail apps besides K9 Mail? Installed that and didn't like the look of it, and there are very limited options.

    Thanks!

    Search in the marketplace didn't find much.

    Try Seven. It's not bad but after trying out seven and K-9 found the standard mail app was most reliable.
