    I have iPhone 4, but thinking to change, but wrondring about the apps. Would I get simulare / better apps that I have on my iPhone, if not I will perhaps not even think about to change mobile phone. I am not worried if the apps could be better than iPhone 4 :)

    The HTC I would like are HTC Desire HD(new one, or simulare / better)

    Some Apps that I like and have on my iPhone 4 and would like to have simulare on Android are:

    I'm not combing through you entire list for you but at least one (at a glance) has an Android version and I'm sure more of them have Android counterparts. I'd suggest browsing Appbrain as well as the Apps subforums of the Android forum sites. It's really your due diligence to determine what might be suitable counterparts in the Android world.

    Its good that you come to the forums for questions that you have, but in my opinion, you should use the SEARCH option more. Even googling "android app that allows me to record my phone conversations" will yield some results, which will lead you to other sites, or searching, as others have said, on appbrain and the like will do the same. Search first, THEN if you can't find what you're looking for, ask it on the forums. Most of us don't sit around all day combing the forums looking to answer every question posted by every user. Take some initiative and do at least some of the work...
    Again, great that you came here, but a simple google search and some digging will usually answer your questions.

    edit: even using the "search this forum" at the top right of the forum page will also yield some results. there are over 500 pages of people asking relatively the same questions as you. you will find something...

    Thanks, but I mean that I have take a little investigated my self and found some of my questions :)

    But I could not find something on that I am asking in post 8. Asking if there are better apps then I have found(can`t ind any other).

    In post 10 I am asking for any good games that will be good to play for my 4years old boy, what you recommande, not what I can search on goolge or any place else.

    In post 11 I am asking again what you recommande, non what I can investigated / search on goolge or any place else.

    Perhaps in post 12, I could do littlebit more investigated and search on goolge. But again here what you recommande. There are plenty apps.

    CarsnGadgets gave me a good hint, and with that good help I found mutch more information on Android, thanks again CarsnGadgets :)
