    I am new to this board, and new to the Motorola Triumph. Since I know people here take their phone seriously, I was wondering some of your favorite apps. So far my favorite are

    Dolphin Browser HD
    Facebook
    Youtube
    Skype
    Ringdroid
    RedLaser
    Music Junk
    Multi Sms
    Pandora
    Speed Test

    Some ones I'm looking for are a good music player ( one that can download album art, and let me change the name of the track/artist in the application), possibly a more intuitive camera app, and others I can not think of at this time.

    Also, on a side note, I have my facebook synced to my phone, but my contacts do not have their facebook pictures displayed , or links to their profiles. If someone could help with that or any suggestions I would appreciate it very much.
     



    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


      Download

       
  2. gmail.
    Dragon Fly (im way too addicted...)

    engadget

    google currents

    google voice. my GV number is my work number.

    HDR Camera+ is very nice

    and pretty much all the stock apps included with MIUI, they work perfectly and dont need me to replace them like i do with the stock apps on CM7 or the stock rom.

    Motorola hyped this phone as a multimedia player for VM. I have not been disappointed:

    Netflix
    HBO Go
    Epix
    Winamp
    Slacker Radio
    Pandora
    TuneIn Radio

    Below is a list I posted over at HowardForums.

    Of course, since thing is a VM thread, I'll also add:

    - Minutes Checker: Virgin Mobile

    Here are a few of the free apps I use, in no particular order, all from the regular Android Market:

    - Parcels: Track packages, with notifications

    - TV listings for Android

    - Key Ring Rewards Cards: So you can scan your rewards cards, and not have to keep them all in your wallet.

    - WiFi Analyzer

    - My Tracks: To track your walks and such via GPS.

    - Bluetooth File Transfer: A file manager, and you can also transfer via BlueTooth to other phones, your PC, and other devices. I recently used it to transfer some files off my old phone to my new phone via BlueTooth.

    - Pandora internet radio

    - GasBuddy - Find Cheap Gas

    - Battery Watcher Widget

    - Missed Call Reminder: For Phone, MMS, SMS messages

    - Craigslist: Automatic notifications for your searches

    - QuickPic: Much batter than Gallery

    - DiskUsage: Graphically shows what is using your app space and SD card space (among others)

    - Remote WAV Free: For playing WAV formatted voicemail messages you receive in your e-mail, like from Comcast/XFinity voicemail.

    Great posts so far, love to see what others are using. I did finally manage to download the swype beta, and I think I'm going to stick with it.

    My favorite upgrade is Dolphin Mini. It is so much faster that I can't believe it. It doesn't seem to be missing anything I use in my day to day web crawling.

    -Evernote (my favorite)
    -Swipepad!! (very useful and free)
    -Fruit ninja (game)
    -Widgetsoid (custom power control widget)
    -Infinite design (draw/create)
    -Zeam (launcher) i have tried them all. i have really been appreciating the simplicity of this launcher and needed a change.
    -Swype (keyboard-sounds like you got it downloaded) i almost for got the amazing swype...i don't know how i would text without it!! If you have not ..you really should give it a try for a few days to get use to it. i thought i would hate a phone without a qwerty but I type sooo fast now i don't miss it at all!

    changed my mind hope this works
