    Im new to Android, got the Inspire on the 9th. Im sure these are stupid questions, but I cant seem to find answers.

    1. Where does the SD card want video files to be? I downloaded some anime, and a few movies, and I want to put them on the phone.

    2. The vibration notification is pathetic, is there an app to make it more aggressive?

    3. Same with number 3, I would like the audio notification to be louder as well. Although I am using a default sound.

    (With #2 & #3 I am using the stock sms app, Id rather leave that alone if possible, I dont want a new keyboard, I like the stock one.)

    1: You should be able to drop the video files to a folder called Movies or Video on the root of your SD card. I personally have never put movies on the phone but I belive it should function the same way as ringtones/wallpapers do.

    2: I don't know of an app that will increase the vibration on the stock notification. I know that you mentioned not wanting to use a different SMS app which makes it a little more difficult. With GO sms, you can choose a custom vibration setting and set the time of vibration in milliseconds to be as long or as many vibrations as you like.

    3: Myself along with many other users have found that if you download ringtones or notification tones from the app "Zedge" they seem to be much louder than the playback of the stock tones. Personally I use a duckhunt tone for my notifications and it is very loud.

    I searched through the SD card, and I didnt see any type of video folders or anything there.

    Ill check out GO SMS, thanks for your answers.

    You may have to create a folder if you don't see one. If you use Astro File Manager you can navigate to your SD card root folder, then create a new folder called videos and dump the movies you want into there.

    It really doesn't matter where you put your movies, the phone will find it. Putting it in a folder is just for your convenience and peace of mind.

    Try using *zedge tones, many people have commented that they're much louder than the stock tones.

    *zedge is an app that you can download for free from the marketplace.

    You would need to buy widget locker. It allows you to customize your lock screen as if it were a home page. Its the best. $1.99 you'll spend in the app store.

    Will the stock reader app open books off my sd card?

    Is there a way to get the desk clock app in landscape?
