I tried go and didn't really like seamed to lagy for my tastes
best music player- poweramp
future text-send a text at a future time (great for reminding the wife to pick up some coffe without me having to wake up)
Nothing, if it works for you. It is your phone and you know best what works. I usually use the stock Android music application and it is fine for me.
Holy crap - I hadn't heard of this one.
An app I find really useful is Automated Away Text Messaging. You are able to customize text messages to automatically send to those who call and text you during the times you know you are going to unavailable (driving, at work, in a meeting, etc). You can customize who it gets sent to (your phone contacts only or anyone who calls or texts while you are unavailable). I find it very useful especially during driving when I absolutely refuse to respond to texts. You can also customize a specific message for a specific person. When you make it active there is an icon that shows up in your notification bar to remind you that the service is on. You do need to remember to shut it off when you do not need it anymore. I have it set to send my message to missed texts only, not phone calls but you can set it to both. It is 99 cents. Great support from the developer as well!
I knew of another app that does that! TASKER!!
I get a headache just looking at screenshots of Tasker.... Is it easier to use than it appears?
I love tasker and if you do much to your phone at all it really isn't hard to set up some very useful profiles. Plus there is plenty of help to get you set up...
By far my favorite Android app
haha i herd once you set it up and do all the reading to set it up its great haha but good luck with that
It really isn't that hard to set up, and you only have to set it up once. Some of the things I do:
-auto reply to SMS while driving
-mute ringer and notifications while sleeping
-turn on wifi, change wallpaper, and mute phone while at work
-turn on car dock and launch slacker when I get in my car
Those are just a few, and I could set them up from scratch in 10 min. Tell me this app isn't worth setting up....
Plus there are more things I do
it sounds legit but it aint an app i really see my self using that much but that is just me
No app is for everybody... That's why there are apps. Otherwise phones would just preloaded with everything that people want.
Just saying tasker is the most powerful android app, if you don't need it, that's fine. There are plenty of very useful apps that I have no need for also.
i mean i herd most people use to save battery power
what kind of options does it have for that and can it preform root opperations as well like setting the CPU?
Favorite Apps: Facebook Mobile, Yahoo Messenger, Weather and Android Booster.
Yup, heard of Tasker but this standalone app is really all I need at this point. This noob still needs things as simple as possible!
I haven't tried yet since I'm with you on this...it looks complicated XD It's on my list of things to do. There's a 7 days trial on the website for you to test out and there are step by step instructions on basic instructions that allow you to get your feet 'wet'.
Don't worry - you can easily jump from noob to knowing more than you thought you ever would fairly quickly with these phones!
Ooohh - didn't see that - good to know. I will add it to my 'Check & Done' list.

opera mini good for saving you data and quick too
