    Hi,

    I just got an HTC Tattoo on Orange, and I'm loving it! (despite discovering that some apps aren't available for it - something they omitted to mention in the shop!)

    Anyone recommend a particularly good app? So far I've downloaded:

    Alice
    Personal Assistant free (haven't logged in yet)
    Movies
    NetCounter
    Dolphin Browser
    GDE Home Screen
    Documents to go free
    Wireless On/Off

    Bit annoyed I can't get Where or Mobile Banking UK, but heigh ho...

    maby you can find some apps at SlideME | Android Community and Application Marketplace you can install the apps with htc sync.
    Apps You must have :
    Some Taskmanager like taskiller,
    shazam
    some file exproller like es file exproler
    and maby a navigation app.

    Have fun with your tattoo !

    Astro file manager. It's an excellent utility that also has some nice surprises, like a process killer. I never leave /home without it! ;)

    Astro is the best file manager/task manager by far, and still free at the moment.

    How is GDE Homescreen? Want to try it but no trial, and not willing to stump up the cash before i know what it is and how it works.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    As for GDE Homescreen, I've only had it on my phone for a few days, but it seems really good. Really like the cube effect (it provides 5 screens, so it's more of a pentagon effect I suppose...). No Glitches so far. Adding widgets, shortcuts and the like is very straightforward and the bar at the bottom of the screen scrolls up when activated to show all your apps in an alphabetical list. There are comments on the market page about it running slow, but I can't say I've noticed so maybe they've fixed that.

    It's only a couple of euros isn't it? I'd say it's worth it.

    You may try Android Manager WiFi for your mobile management. It can manage your contacts, messages, photos, videos, musics... the only thing not good is that it only supports WiFi. but it's free. it's ok for me.
