I am a new Droid user (almost a month on the Droid X). But I thought I would share my favorite apps with you. Let me know if there are some others I need to know about.
1. Pandora – Free internet radio. You create radio stations based on an artist or song of your choice. I use this a lot when I am working out or I plug it into the Auxilary jack in my car while I am driving.
2. Handcent SMS – Let’s be honest, I would have an iPhone if I didn’t loathe AT&T. So, Handcent makes your text app a bit cooler. You can choose an iPhone look and the whole experience is super customizable. Just remember to turn off the notification for the stock Messaging app or else you will get pinged twice for every incoming text.
3. Seesmic – I get a lot of my news from Twitter, and I really like this Twitter app. It was the highest rated in all the research I did online.
4. Foursquare – I am just getting into this app. You check-in wherever you are. You can become mayor of that location by checking-in most often. A lot of restaurants are offering deals to the Mayor of their spot, so there is some reward for the competition created by Foursquare.
5. Evernote – amazing app! You can capture things you want to remember in a way that can be share between your phone and your primary computer. I cut and pasted a shopping list into Evernote for Crash’s back to school drive from a site I found via Google on my Droid. Then I added prices and tweaked the list to our needs (all while walking around Wal-Mart). I then emailed the list to myself and printed it off at church, so everyone could grab a copy on Sunday night.
6. FX Camera – Cool camera app. Several filters for your use. I think I will use this the most for pictures to upload to Twitter/Facebook.
7. PicSay - This app enables you to add fun word bubbles to pictures you have already taken. I had some fun with this and the pictures I took from Dani and my 2nd anniversary dinner.
8. Dolphin Browser – I am testing out this browser right now, but I like its speed and tabbed browsing options.
9. Flixster – I used this last weekend to get movie times last minute, along with checking Rotten Tomatoes. You can also link it to your Netflix account and update your que while on the go.
10. YouVersion - this is the best app for having the Bible on your smartphone. The people at LifeChurch.tv keep making this better. Plus I love that it is at the very top of the most popular free apps in the Droid Market.
Other apps I use and like include ttTumblr, WordPress, TV Guide Mobile, tv.com, SwiftKey, Shazam, ESPN ScoreCenter, Kayak, Kindle, Backgrounds, Documents to Go, TED Mobile, and Droid Light.
