    phone dial-pad - pressing various combinations of buttons allows you to communicate worldwide. The developers reduced the number of buttons to just 0 through 9 and added a pound and asterisk symbol, so it is easy to use. I think it comes with most Android phones.

    Very new Android user...not more than a few weeks old. I am fascinated by the platform and the apps that have been recommended here. Thanks fot he recommendations.

    I was just wondering, for longtime android users after the excitement of exploring the android eco-system, with how many apps have you stabilized on your device?

    Its called TrafficDroid England and helps me get to work everyday!
    I found it from here: TrafficDroid England Android Application

    Or just search for it in the market.

    I am giving another shout-out for Lookout which is an app that provides security for your phone in scanning for malware, spyware, etc., in all the apps you download on your phone as well as when you click on links or surf the web. It also analyzes apps that access your private information such as location, contacts and messages. You can back-up all your data, locate, lock, scream or wipe your phone in case it is stolen. You can do this all from the Lookout website once you register.

    I have the premium version which is $2.99 a month or $29.99 for a year (kind of pricey) but it definitely works great, I notice no excessive battery drain and it really is great piece of mind. They have the free version also which does not include all of the above but definitely provides good basic protection! :)

    I usually have about 150 apps installed at any given time. Some of them I rarely use, but I keep around just so I have them (shazam, ringdroid, status notes, etc) and others I use all the time (Pulse, zedge, goSMS, etc). Then there are others that I never "open" but increase my phone's functionality (widget locker, tasker, shuffle tone, root call blocker, etc)

    I have a few games, but I got rid of most of my games after I got my iPad 2

    I'm a firefox user. Is there anything that DolphinHD can do that Firefox can't? I like how firefox integrates with the desktop software.

    Favorite apps... I will not consider those which are built into every Android (GMail, GTalk, Google Maps) since it make no sense to do so.

    SwiftKey/ SwiftKey X.
    When I moved over to touchscreen Android from a QWERTY messenger, my biggest problem was typing speed. I tried several options (SWYPE, Compact QWERTY keyboard). In the end the solution was the basic Android virtual QWERTY with excellent word prediction.

    ColorNote.
    I was looking for a simple task manager, preferably something that would sync with Google Tasks. In the end I stuck with this one, because while it does not sync with Google Tasks, it has a very nice and simple interface. The others provided too many options I don't use and clutters the interface.

    Catch Notes.
    For taking permanent notes I like Catch Notes. I Twitter so I prefer hash tags for tagging, other than that it is about the same as Evernote.

    eBuddy Messenger.
    I don't use it too much, since GTalk is the one I keep running 24/7. But eBuddy has one little known feature. You can get to Facebook Chat without having to disclose your phone number and getting a unique Facebook user name.

    Robo Defense.
    The game is so good I had to uninstall it. It was starting to disturb my sleep cycle.

    I just started using this app yesterday when it was the free app of the day on amazon, and I have to say in landscape I type a lot faster using it.
