    Hi guys about to buy a legend when they are released next week and this is my 1st exposure to a droid phone except for a week of owning a Magic that got run over....

    As a newbie what apps would you suggested to get me started. I have tried to do some reserach here. Apps in brackets are what I assume are good apps after reading some here... If you have a moment Id be keen to hear your views.

    Answer and make calls as easily as possible.

    Search contacts easily and a good call log (Dialler One)

    A good keyboard for fat fingers :) (Swype)

    SMS (Handcent)


    Facebook (App from FB)

    Browser - (Xscope lite)

    Be able to download maps and store them on the SD card and then use them at a later date, preferably with a GPS function.

    Take photos and send to PC, even if needing a cable.

    Is there an App so my work emails (Outllook) can be delivered directly to me like my Crackberry once did?

    From what I have read Skype wont work to make calls to landlines and cells when hooked to a wifi spot. Is there an alternative?

    Thanks in advance guys. Looking forward to enjoying and learning at the same time.
