    FoldMod (makes red pixel show up on screen to notify of email/missed call instead of LED)

    Still looking for a keyboard that has alt numbers on the top line (press and hold 1sec for numbers) that doesn't lag. Wish Android or Samsung KB did that!

    would you mind posting or pm'ing me a pic of what the FoldMod looks like? I found it online but cant seem to find any pics of it, nor do I have my captivate yet to install it on.

    He's apparently changed the name of the app to "NoLED" and the thread is here: [App] NoLED - Use the AMOLED screen for incoming notifications - Page 10 - xda-developers

    I'm not sure how to take a screenshot once I have a dot waiting... so let me see if I can find another camera and take a picture. I'll PM a link to you once I upload it.

    You can download an App called "Screenshot".

    Open the app, and enable Screenshot on Shake, then instead of
    hitting the back button, hit home, so its running in the background.
    Set the screen how you like, then shake the phone..

    Why Google didnt put something like this in the OS is still a mystery to me.

    Speed Test (tests download and upload speeds for 3g or wifi)
    TV Guide Mobile (provides tv listings, and descriptions...just like the tv guide channel)
    Pandora (I would descibe it as a music discovery app...you create "stations", by naming an artist, song, or album. It plays similar music to what you entered)

    Twitter for Android (self explanatory - twitter app)
    Engadget (app for the tech site - engadget.com)

    Gotta add to my post. I've been loving the Kindle app after realizing you can set the background to black, and the words to white.

    I'll try to name some that isn't on the list.

    K9 Mailer-I am surpised that no one said this yet. This is a replacement for the stock email client on the phone. I runs a lot faster and smoother then the stock one. Also your yahoo mail works over wifi! This is the app that saved me from going back to the iphone.

    DoubleTwist-itune for android. Allow you to sync your itune playlist to your phone.

    Home Switcher-Allows you to toggle between LauncherPro and touchwize.

    Toggle Google- A must for anyone who use Google Voice. Allow you to toggle between making calls with: GV only, Cell phone only, GV only for international call, and Ask before call.

    Google Goggle-Very fun app to play with when you are on a road trip or just board. You take a picture of something, (building or mountain) and google will give you links to whatever you taken picture of. It is like searching the internet with your camera.
