    Might I suggest to the OP that he use the "hide" BB code around the QR codes like I did in this thread. It'll make it look a whole lot cleaner. You might also consider adding a price and where to download it with each app.

    Yeah, I just wanted to give you a hard time. I was just shocked that you even suggested the use of a task killer after reading many things including you sig link. Don't get me wrong I use one but only for one or two apps.

    Has anyone tried out Grooveshark? The app is only available to Premium Subscribers of their service right now while it's in beta so I went ahead and signed up and boy is it worth the $3.00 a month!

    Don't ask, can't tell
    Between my ring and middle finger tips.
    1. It is similar to the stock, shows album art, and controls on the bottom. The widget takes up the entire screen, no sliding lock screen. There is a button on the top that takes you to the stock lock screen, so there is another step to getting to your phone.

    2. I apologize, It's actually called TurboList. I have tried a couple note apps, but I was looking for the check-off lists that I didn't really find elsewhere. Yes to the voice clips, and no widget, but I did find out I could pin it to a NoteEverything shortcut on the home screen. I did also like ColorNote for the ability to "stick" a Post-It note like widget with your notes right on your home screen. With choice of color.

    Hope this helps.

    Google tasks has a check off too. And you can see it online, and if you have the pure calendar widget, tasks show up on the calendar

    Where the Sakura grows
    It seems that each note app has some features I like but not everything I want lol. Cool will download that than. I want the voice clips and check off option. Maybe of a lot of people request it, the developer will put a either option

    Edit: damn ads

    Interesting, I'm using pure calendar widget but I don't want my notes and lists to go on there. Does it have voice clips attachment and a widget?

    Edit: can't seem to find Google task on the market :(

    Thanks,
    Roze

    Its gtasks. And there is a widget, but no voice. And you can set it so that they don't show up on the calendar

    Glad I could help. Let your battery run all the way down and it will be more accurate

    Screeble looks promising. Keyring looks great! I have soooo many different cards that I just refuse to carry in my wallet, so every time I go to a store and they make me use a card I just signup for a new one.
