    Hi, I just bought a EVO to replace my Hero. Wow, what an upgrade! :D I've got a couple questions on the EVO. Is there a suggested app that can unlock the phone without pressing the power button? Also, where is a good place to find a quality screen protector? I bought the phone with an Otterbox, so I already have a case.

    Welcome to the Forum.
    I like ZAGG for Screen protecters, not sure about everyone else.
    What do you mean, "unlock"?

    Thanks for the welcome & suggestion :)

    I'm wondering if instead of having to push the power button and then swiping the screen to unlock the phone, is there a good app that would allow me to push one of the 4 bottom buttons or volume control and then swipe? It takes me both hands to unlock this monster! I guess I'm so used to the smaller Hero and how the power button was on the bottom and could be activated with my thumb.

    Also look at SoundHound - Android app on AppBrain
    Exactly what I was thinking. This is your ticket OP, I have this on my phone, and always use it.

    Sorry, should've explained myself.

    It doesn't, just a cool App that a new user might enjoy :)

    Ordered the ZAGG screen protector tonight. They sound like they protect good.
