    As the title suggests, what is the coolest thing your Incredible does?

    (I'm basically looking for new, cool things to do with my phone =P)

    My Incredible can go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates ... Faster thn any other phone I have ever had!!!

    Lol ok that was a joke.

    My favorite part of my phone is probably the GPS.

    I took a trip to Sesame Place with my family this past weekend, fired up the GPS on my phone and off we went. Saw some traffic building up so i applied the "Traffic Layer" and it colored the route in green/yellow/red depending on how dense the traffic was.

    AND i saw about 2hrs ahead of me was a "RED" area, and it has a little pin to push on. After pushing on it, i see it gave me an alert as to why it was a red area! "90 minute delay on GW Bridge due to 2 left lanes closed"

    WOW! My wife was impressed heh.

    Anyhow that's pretty basic stuff im sure everyone knows, but its my favorite feature so far.

    I think PSX4Droid is probably up high on the list of things I can do with my phone.

    Yea but how many people have a phone?

    I just use a notepad program in mine and write lettters, than when I am back at home I wifi them to the printer and I am ready to mail them out. Usually within 2-3 days they get them and within a week I get a response back. Works well...

    I remote into my work computer using the native VPN client which still supports MSCHAP v1. We are using an old Cisco PIX firewall. I can now get into my vmsphere that controls our virtual servers.

    Also ftp client is cool as well as watch my home with the ipcamera app that supports PTZ.


    Loving it!

    How do i view a camera thats on inside my house?? That would be wild.

    I have a laptop at home i can set it up and have the camera aimed, is it possible to view that camera without the big preview window opening on my laptop and informing everyone i am viewing it? lol

    The coolest this is has done is give me more time. It has almost replaced my home laptop. Instead of taking time at night to sit at my laptop to handle my biz I get it all done during the day when I have a moment.

    Total lifesaver when you have young kids.
