    Dolphin HD is good, you could also check out Skyfire and Opera Mini 5 if you want a new browser. Knocking Live for video sharing, and Hoccer for ad-hoc file transfer. Check out LauncherPro too, if you want a home replacement app, I was finding it hard to fill up 7 screens in sense.

    I like The New York Times app, Google Goggles, and the Navigation app. The official Twitter app is a lot better than I expected, and can hang with the big boys like Seesmic, Twidroid and Tweetcaster.

    Heres my shot at a list:

    -xScope Broswer (Actually, I LOVE THIS, Dolphin HD is good, so is Opera but this one stood out for me!)
    -SwitchPro Widget (It is a paid app, only .99, imo, its totally worth it.)
    -LauncherPro Beta (Yeah, it was listed above, but Its surely worth a look)
    -HomeSwitcher (If you decide to switch from Home to Home.)
    -Juice Defender (helps save some of my battery)

    Google Goggles is just a novelty. I'll probably never use it.

    I wanted to try google goggles but every review from the market is bashing it and apparently you can't uninstall it.. so I passed.

    Dolphin HD was also horribly slow on my phone =\

    Sorry I couldn't offer any info, also checking this thread myself for tips on good apps.

    i couldnt really get the hang of shapewriter so i uninstalled it. With goggles, it seemed that everything that i took pictures of, it wouldn't find it or it would give me something way off topic.....so in my opinion, not very useful

    Is JuiceDefender working with the official 2.1 release?
    I read it wasn't.

    Seems to be working fine for me. Havent tried ALL of the options, but the main ones, like scheduling and Traffic work just fine.

    I tried it and it uninstalled for me without issue.

    Huh - I've used it on household products, books, a set of bass strings and a desktop wallpaper and other then some older books, Goggles got it right every time. Honestly, I wont probably use it often at all, and it does seem more "parlor trick" than useful, but finding that wallpaper finally led me to the artist and more of his work. Pretty nifty, if you ask me!

    Like I said, I didn't install it.

    Just going by all the comments in the market...so maybe it will uninstall for the hero.

    What exactly does HomeSwitcher do?
  22. NovaFox238

    NovaFox238 Well-Known Member

    For example, If you have Sense UI, as default, but want to set another one you downloaded (IE: LauncherPro Beta, Panda Home, Home++ etc...) Home Switcher basically gives you the option to switch between different user Home Interfaces.

    First time I have seen anyone mention Radar Now. Superb app for tracking weather, especially if you get outdoors much in your activities. Anything Google I tend to stay away from based on Google's "difficulties" with keeping private information private and other reasons.

    it even hides the icon with another name and passwords it... bunch of sick-o's :eek:

    I did notice you can goto setup and put whatever site you want it to launch
