So I made the jump from iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket with Android OS... I've already added quite a few apps but I'm still looking for some other cool apps, what are your favorite Android apps?
The two most used apps I have are touchdown --which is not actually about football but is rather email and calendar integration and circle launcher, so I can hide a bunch icons under one and keep my phone screen kind of clean.
I also use pure calendar and juice defender.
Those are all kind of boring and utility related. I also use spotify (music) tapatalk (forum software, though unfortunately, not for this site) and Poynt. Just because I can never decide what I want to eat for lunch so I look to see what's nearby.
SwiftKey is the best android keyboard I've ever tried.
Dolphin Mini is a fantastic browser. Dolphin HD is even better, but it's a little too robust for my crappy little tablet.
I use Calengoo for a calendar. I can go through Google calendar to keep it sync'ed with the Outlook calendar I have at my desk at work.
I tried K-9 for my email because I kept hearing how great it was, but I went back to the stock android email app. It has all the features I need and it's more stable.
If you like to cook, ChefTap is a fantastic recipe database.
Yahoo Sportacular is a great, customizable way to keep up with your favorite teams in just about any sport.
And once you get your phone set up the way you want it, Titanium Backup is a MUST HAVE.
Thanks guys, I've been using some of these suggested apps for days and they've been some of the most useful suggestions I have received.
Now, the ONLY problem I have is that my battery level indication and every widget I get doesn't update after a full charge until after I restart the phone. I have to imagine it's a bug in the software on a SUPER new phone but...damn I love this phone! Soo glad to be back away from Apple.
lol just finally broke down after a year of debating over numerous phones to buy. The Galaxy Nexus got me to bite. I was actually just stopping in to bookmark puff when i decided to hit new threads. Have to bookmark thread on pc & check out some of the apps listed. I use a memo pad a lot with my BB Storm 2 so first & only app i dl'd so far is color note. Unfortunately swype isnt available atm but i know several people swear by it....
Soundhound is good
Awaremote for controlling my media server on the deck
Supergnes lite for Nintendo goodness
Bluetooth manager is a handy little app for listening to music on your Borg implant (important side note it appears Borg is listed in the android dictionary... Interesting)
Gosmspro great sms app
Google+ kicks the stuffing out of facebook
Es file explorer solid file viewer comes in handy
Ftpdroid for wireless file transfer to your computer
Teamviewer really nice remote desktop software
And last but not least the venerable Winamp
