There are only 4 post here since the new year had started. Commone guys. voice your favorite Apps. I will be getting the Nexus One in two or three days and I want cool apps for it. (t-mobile kind)

Everyone should download where's my droid..It's a free app..You basically pick a word and if your phone is on vibrate you just text the word and your phone will automatically go to the highest volume and keep ringing til you find it! it's awesome!
The top apps I use on a regular basis are

Shop Savvy
Iheartradio...( love listening to John Jay and Rich in the morning)I get to hear that mornings show on my way home from work and the best part is it skips the commercials. Laughing
Zedge( cool ringers and sounds especially for notifications and stuff)

There are so many great apps out there but these are the ones I use all the I have a HERO so I am limited to 1.5 apps , I can't wait til we get 2.1 so I can see...

I would get the nexus if it had a keyboard Crying or Very sad a REAL one.

you can pay for a larger keabordin app market, but i got used to the keybord, just turn it on its side to get largest buttons and you can set 'hiapiac feedback' (or something like that) so it skakes whenever you touch a key.

thanks for the apps list i love my iHeart radio app. i listen to Planet Rock in Jacksonville, Florida. (i live in Kentucky)

So i love my Nexus One phone. THANKYOU all for your posts, i will look into your favorites.

1.(Find My Phone) you can text from a cell a secret code so your phone turns on gps and wifi to text back your gps location and set it to text again in 5 minutes.

2.(ICE in case of emergency) from the lock screen you can show your emergency contact information and have a few numbers you can call from the locked phone from the app.

3.(Task Killer full) it stops 'most' applications from running in the background that drain your battery life a lot.

1.(i heart radio) listen to the free given radio stations. ONLY USE if you have 3g or wifi data coverage, otherwise its slow to load and skips parts of songs.

2.(battery time ...

"i music" is gone, but I found a replacement "mp3 downloads" - freaking P2P unlimited free music downloads FTW! works on motorola backflip

Mar 21, 2010, 2:08 AM
Eww, you got the Backflip? That ph is deformed!!! The keyboard is all wrong!

This might shock you, I don't know what your going to thing, but I'm leaving IT&T.

Going over to "The Dark Side"
Vzn. Getting me a !!Droid!! It's ONLY $20 on the letstalk website, way, way too good of a deal to pass up! I'd have it already but I have my mother on my ATT acct and she is deciding what to do, come with me to Vzn, or go to one of my sisters accts. She uses less than 10min/mo, it isn't worth it to her to have her own acct.

eh its all good, I will be moving on shortly too. I want the nexus one, buddy of mine got it. Insane noise reduction for calls (but yeah, its expensive).

May 12, 2010, 5:09 PM
Yeah, I'm hoping the noise cancellation feature becomes standard in the next 12-18 months of upcoming smartphones. It's good for when it's windy, or a lot of traffic and your trying to have a conversation.
