    Hey, I just registered hereafter getting the Droid 2 yesterday. I like it very much, it's awesome. MUCH better than the Palm Pre.

    What are the coolest apps, most helpful/fun?

    I've noticed a lack of widgets, is there a seperate WidgetMarket or something?

    Also, what is rooting?


    Thanks.

    A lot of apps you have or can get from the market come with widgets that you can add by long pressing on the homepage or by pressing the + button.
    There is no separate widget store...

    rooting is gaining 'super user' access to the root folder of your phone allowing you to use functions of the device that normal users cant. some apps require your phone to have been rooted.

    my 3 tips would be:
    1. dont use a task killer!!!
    2. get widgetlocker
    3. try launcherpro

    rooting is giving root access to you're device
    you will void warranty I think.
