Must Have Apps ?

2011-04-04, 12:08 PM

Hi all..

Let us list this discussion with must have apps on an Android

To start with ,

1. I have Android 1.5 and i would suggest HANDCENT SMS - a nice way to unite the messaging way.

2. Android 1.5 : My phone Explorer : guides u with taking backup of ur fone to the machine.

3. Android 1.5 : MySettings : Gives u shortcut for changing some settings of the fone.

4. Android 1.5 : FACEBOOK : dont needa say why

DO keep posting ur recommends for the fone.

Thanks

Must have apps:

  1. AT&T Mark the Spot app - helps mark areas where there are dropped calls, no coverage, no data access, or other problem areas with AT&T's coverage to help improve their system
  2. Bank of America mobile banking app
  3. Google Voice app - Google Voice handles all of my voicemail for my phone, and it works great bc you can use your computer to manage it as well and get all your voicemail msgs transcribed, and you get to pick your OWN new number to forward to your phone, so you get your original cell number and any new number you want to use, like one that has your name in it, like mine has my initials in it, so it is easy to tell people my number, but they both go to my cell, either way.
  4. Yelp - Just because I like to review places
  5. Mr. Number Caller ID - gives you caller ID on any number or at least the area they are calling from if the number is blocked
  6. myAT&T - manage all the aspects of your AT&T mobile plans for your whole family and add or delete packages right there and it works right away - change plans, add plans, whatever, see your bill, pay your bill, see your minutes used, data used, etc.
  7. Disaster Alerts - which is good for people who live in areas where disasters may occur and you need a warning and plan - like I live in CA where there are earthquakes and recently tsunamis... and I live in an area where the next "big one" is due 100% accuracy within the next 30 years or less. SO I need to know.

If I may ask,

Why are you avoiding installing 2.1?

@harry145,

I apologize. I didn't see your profile, as I was responding from the email. Also, there is a non-us backflip community (however, not as active as this one). Thanks for starting this interesting thread.

Unfortunately, the 2.1 is not available outside us . Glad to hear the phone is working for you and it is true that some users have experienced slower performance after the upgrade.

@dgrbovic : Mymistake.. i should have cleared the thins before posting in the US Community.. but rightly said.. the NON-US community is not that active. so thats the reason i tend to come back here ...

Well. yes the phone is working good for me. but after one of my frens got Incredible S i have started liking 2.2 and not love my fone that much .. but cant dump my foine and have to live with it for minimum a year...

so try to find ways and apps tokeep me and my fone occupied
