    Please bear with me here, as I am brand new to Android. FYI I will be rooting my Commando, if that makes any difference in the way these questions are answered.

    - What's the best wifi iTunes syncing utility out there?

    - What's the best hotspot app out there? How about the best free one?

    - Is the default Gmail app decent or would you recommend something else? I have two Gmail addresses and about ten Google Apps accounts.

    - Can my Apple Address Book "groups" be synced up to Gmail so they show up as such in Gmail and consequently on the Android OS?

    - Likewise, is there any way to actually sync iCal up to Google Calendar so that updates from any of the three locations are synced across the board?

    - Is there any way to deal with system files and such over wifi so that I don't have to constantly pull out the microSD card? What about normal files?

    - Is there an app out there that will actually sync or at least download things from Dropbox just like a normal computer does?

    That's all I can think of for the moment. Thanks in advance the help!

    I can't help with the iOS related questions but some I can :)


    Barnacle Wifi Tether has good reviews and works for people from what I have seen. I also think there is a wifi tether app out there as well.

    You can access multiple accounts with the default Gmail app. I perfer to use K-9 Mail so I can condense my inboxes to one app rather than use a differnt app for non-gmail accounts

    There are several file explorers that allow you to sync over wifi. You should also be able to attach the phone to the CPU via USB and send files with the cable.

    Dropbox has an official app

    AS to the email questions. I find the native app works great for me for Gmail as well as my POP3 and webmail accounts.
