Good idea. So here it is. Discuss apps, issues, phone recommendations etc.


I'd say to any android user, the first thing you should download is advanced task killer. And make sure you set it so that it automatically kills tasks every half hr. I have it set on safe mode at every half an hr, and it has dramatically improved my battery life.

I love my X and recommend it to anyone. I like the droids better than the iphone.

I haven't really gotten into any aps other than games, so if anyone has any suggestions post them please. I do already have advanced task killer and it's awesome.

For games, I recommend to everyone Angry Birds. **** is so addicting and there's like 300+ levels. Plus, we get it for free where as iPhone you have to pay for it. Suckers.

My gf just got one of these phones and it is the best thing ever.

Also, I know little to nothing about Linux, but isn't Android basically a stripped down version of Linux or something like that?

Hmm interesting. But it is the full version of Angry Birds? Because there's a beta version (free on both iPhone and Droid) and a full version (supposedly costs $ on iPhone, free on Droid).

Also, I downloaded the ESPN score zone thing because it was free and I can now just have a list of my teams on my home screen. Is there any aps better than this for just being able to quickly look at scores?

I like the cut of your jib. I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter.

Not all of you will think this is cool, but I like it, and its pretty useful. There is an app, Rain Alarm, that notifies you with vibrations how close, intense, and how big an area of rain/snow/ whatever is coming towards you. One vibration means basically nothing, but it goes up to 5 on my phone, and that means its either raining on you, or about to. I like it because it keeps the weather from sneaking up on me. It also has a radar, with zoom and animation for you to watch if you want to look at an actual image as well.

Just picked up a Galaxy S (Canada is lame for not getting newer phones sooner). I am loving it so far.

Forenci 11-17-2010 06:55 PM

I love my Droid X too, BBD. It's so amazing. I used the GPS on it last week to help me get to Giants stadium successfully. Such a life saver.

Doodle Jump is a really fun game on there for 99 cents btw.

I've used GPS so many times whenever I've gone to places I've never been, it has kept me from getting off track so many times

the emulators are pretty good, but i cant get to grips using touch screen as a controller its too much of an effort...anyone tried them out?

I'll second the Angry Birds rec, there's a couple of pretty good snooker/pool games on there but i cant rem the names. def looking out for some apps other people are enjoying.

I got the HTC Desire HD.

Paul 11-18-2010 07:51 AM

I've had the Samsung Vibrant for the past couple months and I love it. Battery Life is a ***** though.

trkaline 11-18-2010 07:54 AM

I thought this thread was going to be a thread for CJ to organize his evil Android Minions. Well sense I'm here... I have a G1 and I'm thinking about getting the G2, does anybody have it and is it infinitely more awesome than the G1?

vikes_28 11-18-2010 09:45 AM

I made a thread first :(

bigbluedefense 11-18-2010 11:43 AM

my bad guys, lock this thread, i didn't know another one was out there.

bigbluedefense 11-19-2010 11:39 AM

Alright, so since my thread is cooler, we're going to make this the official android thread.

And just to officially make it cooler, here's a picture of christina hendricks.


yourfavestoner 11-19-2010 11:42 AM

Christina Hendricks is hot, but she has the weirdest neck/shoulder area. She should never, ever wear her hair up.

bored of education 11-19-2010 11:43 AM

mmmm bewbs, i has droid and i like it a lot more than my crackburry

Vikes99ej 11-19-2010 12:00 PM

That is the hottest redhead ever.

nepg 11-19-2010 01:23 PM

I'll be getting an Epic next month. Any recommended apps? Obviously I like games, but most-interested in personal organizer apps. Preferably free.

badgerbacker 11-19-2010 01:46 PM

I want a Droid X however I'm already a verizon user and am not due for an upgrade. Is there any place I can get one for less than $500?

I tried newegg.com but my contract is not up for extension until next year.

Any help?

nepg 11-19-2010 02:15 PM

I think you can usually sign a 2-year contract even if you're already on a contract. They just want to keep you on the contract...they don't care how many contracts you sign to get new phones...
