    im privileged to be one of the few people in my circle of friends that own a droid and i blow them away in many feature comparisons as they all have iphones or blackberries....but i noticed through the apple app store...there were many cool apps where you can just shake the phone for certain features like wake-ups...notifications...and even being used in popular games...just wondering what Android has that has that kinda cool "shake" feature....i think it would be sweet....

    Car Locator (pay version) has a feature where you shake the phone to mark the GPS location you want to save...

    Check out "Android LightSaber". You select which light saber to use and, as you move the DROID around, it sounds as if you're waving a light saber around. A fast wave sounds like a saber strike. Shaweet. Makes everyone smile. :)

    "Not very useful...but fun, IN EVERY WAY!"

    That's my new catch phrase.

    I know on the iPhone star wars light saber app you can actually *fight* other users who also have the light saber. I haven't tested it out with my droid because I haven't come across anyone else who has one. But my son said that they have battles all the time with the iPhones. It makes the swords clashing noise I believe.

    Doh! I just discovered that the star wars light saber IS the android light saber. The listing in the market and in the applications list is different.

    i've yet to see any apps that allow the droid to interact wtih other droids, and i'm fairly certain that the lightsaber app doesn't interact.

    it's a shame because that would actually make that app "useful".

    On Twidroid, you can shake to refresh your timeline.
    On Draw, you can turn over and shake like an Etch-a-Sketch to clear screen.
    Christmas Snow Globe is fun for right now. You shake it to get the snow falling

    Well, there's the obvious category of dice games! Zilch for instance (it even supports hotseat multi-player). :)

    A friend of mine has an app called iJiggles on his iPhone and its much like the Andwobble. Once I saw how you could make "stuff" bounce around, I knew I had to get that app! LOL!

    There is the "Bump" program, which lets you bump against another Droid or even iPhone to share contact information or even files.

    More info about Bump for Android
