My most used apps

8 posts in this topic

Here is a list of apps that I use on a daily basis. Some are commercial apps but most are free. ;)

1. Home++ - free home replacement app. Allows up to 7 screens, notification bar hiding, screen shot, and many other features. The developer is actively developing the program with updates almost every week. It is still considered beta but it works great. ;) Free

2. CalWidget - Calendar widget that has the ability to show both Gmail and corporate calendars either individually or at the same time. Has many different size widgets. Free

3. Beautiful Widgets - Flip clock and weather widget in one. looks like the SenseUI clock with weather. Has weather animations in the forecast screen. (unfortunately this app is no longer available due to a C&D from HTC)

4. Handcent SMS - SMS and MMS replacement program. Has many feature not in the stock messaging program. Will split long messages over 160 characters in to 2 messages or in to a MMS if it is longer. Has many great features. Free

5. Battery Status - Widget that will show battery status in percentage with a graphic level representation also. Can show an icon with battery percentage in the notification bar also. Tapping on the widget provides a popup with shortcuts to many settings allowing you to turn on or off many features. Free

6. MixZing - music app that will suggest other songs in your library based on what you are listening to. Free

7. Abduction World Attack - Fun little game that will occupy some time. Commercial

8. Dolphin Browser - Browser that provides tabs and pinch features. Great replacement for the default browser.

BW's words come highly recommended.

I downloaded Home++ and Calwidget and will try those out.

Here's my list:

1. Gmote: Let's you control your computer over wifi. Cool little program (takes a little to set up).

2. Digital Clock Widget: Gives you a clock on the home screen. It's a small detail, but I like it better than the small one.

3. Shop Savvy: I went Christmas shopping yesterday and went to Best Buy and this helped me. It scans bar codes and tells you how much the product is at other places locally and on the web. It also provides reviews (sometimes).

4. Key Ring: Have too many dongles from your key chains? Scan them in and let your Droid do the rest!

5. Scoreboard: It's a google app that alerts you to goals, scores by your favorite sports teams.

6. Slacker: It's like Pandora, but I think it's better.

7. Google Voice: (Requires Invite): This replaces your regular voicemail. It will actually transcribe the message and send it to you. It's not perfect, but you can get the gist from what it sends.

8. Games: I've downloaded Coloroid, Trap, and Papi Jump

Everyone has their favorite apps. Share yours!
