    Does anyone have the sprint total equipment protection app that uses gps to track ur stolen phone? Sprint texted me the app. I think its draining my battery. Is this app necessary?

    Sprint can track you through their cell phone towers by your ESN. They don't need you to have a silly app that is active to track your phone :p

    Me too I got it free from Amazon and love it. I also use the dragon dictation and speak a lot of my text and it gets it right almost all the time except on occasion if I am driving on the highway. Now I had Vlingo before but there was a glitch with EVO 4G and Froyo 2.1 and it rebooted the phone so I rarely used it but I got it back now and am anxious to try the in car features.

    I figured that. Why does sprint have us use these silly pointless apps?

    It's not better than any other music player unless you are signed up for the google music beta. With the beta you upload your music to a cloud and the you can access the music over the internet or through the google music app.

    How did you get this free from amazon? I have been searching all over android market for amazon app market and im not finding it. Also, the swype on the stock keyboard isnt working at all for me, making it useless. TIA

    PdaNet is absolutely awesome. We have a beefed up DSL connection in my house which can get anywhere from 192 kb/s to 250 kb/s. i am currently hooked up to my computer via usb cable on my 3vo's 4g, downloading a 1.9 gb file, getting a consistent 400 - 500 kb/s.

    this is absolutely awesome.

    I absolutely recommend PdaNet for tethering.

    Hi This is my first post here.

    This is my first smart phone, I love it so far. I know many of you have had several droids already so you already know most of these apps but some of us dont. but as a first timer here this post is awesome. It explains why each of his choices are useful. I know how to use a search button but with a list of 30 apps I have never heard of that is kind of a daunting task. So thanks for the explanation of each app. I hope more of you will do this.

    Any one with Adobe flash player 10.1? Is it any good? Tend to watch animes so curious to know if its any good. I don't even know if we need it on the EVO 3D but can't hurt to ask.

    I believe the latest update is 10.3. I have that on my phone so I can view flash content on web pages. Works like a charm :)

    I have an app question? I used to use find my car lite. I park my car in a parking garage and I know that when I 1st got this app and this is weird but it had a white checkered background with this arrow and the arrow was on the 5th line and I was on the 5th floor. I don;t know if that was a coincidence or not. I never got it to do that again. After that it just showed me a map and I had to know what floor I was on and it would direct me.

    Anyway what's the best find my car app out there and is there one that really can show you what floor of a parking garage your on? I usually kind of remember the spot but never the floor. But I know find my car lite when I 1st got it the way it showed this arrow on the 5th X and I was on the 5th floor I thought it was weird. But I didn't know if find my car apps really do that or not. Thanks,

    I'd post a link if I could get a clean one. :(

    Ok, so goto amazon.com and use their search for Apps for Android.

    You'll want to already have an Amazon account to proceed. On that page to the right is a tool: Download the Amazon Appstore - enter your phone number or email there. You'll get a pop-up with step-by-step instructions and little video on how to proceed to download their appstore app.

    Each day, they give away a paid app for free. You can get an app, try it, uninstall it if you don't like it or aren't sure yet. After that, it shows in your bullpen so you can re-download as often as you need - works thru resetting or losing apps, no problem.

    No telling if the feebie is going to be a moose or a dog so you have to check every day and see what's available that day. Once you've missed a chance for a paid app for free, no do-overs, you've missed it.

    Hope this helps!

    BTW and FWIW - I've moved from swiping to SwiftKey and find that because of its next word prediction, it's faster for me. I can bang out sentences and not type much.

    I had the iHeartRadio v3.0.3 apk backed up on my old Hero and Computer. It installed and does work on my EVO 3D.

    I thought most, if not all, of these apps ran off of marking a GPS location? My solution, although not as eloquent as an app, would be to suggest this: Take a picture of the markings on the support pillars where you park. Most of the time, they mention which floor. If they don't, take a picture of the floor before you get in the elevator/stairs.
