    Cool Droid Apps?

    I just recently upgraded to a Droid phone on U.S. Cellular (HTC Desire) and am checking out the market. I've got a few apps already, but any suggestions as to what I should get? What have you downloaded that you like? What apps do you use most frequently?

    Wireless tethering, but you usually have to root the phone to do that.

    Re: Cool Droid Apps?

    There's a music player app called doubleTwist that will sync with your iTunes.
    PowerAMP is also a good music player, tons of options.
    ESPN Scorecenter
    Rongdroid - lets you edit and create ringtones out of any song on your phone.
    Google Shopper is pretty cool.

    I assume you already have these but just in case: facebook, twitter, youtube, pandora.

    Re: Cool Droid Apps?

    Not really an app but the best one I've found is Launcher Pro Plus. Allowed me to have 7 screens, resize widgets, etc

    As far as apps

    Pandora
    Barcode Scanner
    Apps Organizer-Cleans up your screen and allows you to create folders
    Beautiful widgets
    Extended Controls
    Handcent SMS-Don't use this much since I'm trying to get all my friends on Google Talk instead since it's free.
    ONTheFly
    Opera Mobile browser
    Picassa Tool
    Shopping List
    Slingplayer-Only if you have a slingbox of course
    Tikl
    tweetdeck-checks for twitter and facebook updates as often as you like.
    where's my droid

    Tasker-Allows you to do a ton of things. For example when I plug in my headphones the audio goes up and when I unplug it goes down. This one is a little complicated but once you get it working..

    Mileage
    Dropbox
    Audio Manager

    Re: Cool Droid Apps?

    Apps Organizer is one of my favorites on this list. For example I have a folder called "Music" in that I have FM Radio, iheartradio, last.fm, listen, Shazam, slacker, and pandora.

    Re: Cool Droid Apps?

    Another cool app that you don't put on your phone but on your PC's browser is Fox to phone and chrome to phone. You can just hit a button on your browser and it will send that page to your phone. It's surprising how often I've used this.

    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    an appkiller to save battery
    steamy window- just a cool app to show off to people
    kreac calculator- scientific calculator

    Re: Cool Droid Apps?

    I'm also using the Launcher Pro app. I like it a lot better than any of the other skins/GUIs out there.

    Another vote for Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons.

    If you are a gamer, try snesoid, nesoid, gensoid, etc. Lets you play old ROMs on your phone.

    Shop Savy - a barcode scanner great for checking prices on items.

    Google goggles - google search with you camera.

    desktop visualizer - allows you to make your own icons. works great with launcher pro plus which allows you to resize your icons

    Gas Buddy
    The Weather Channel

    And for interesting games I've been playing Nintaii and Unblock Me a lot lately.

    Enjoy your new phone!
