I'm looking at all these different Google apps like Goggles and Shopper and I'm just wondering which of these is acctually worth the time. Shopper seems nice but I'm just not sure it's whorth the time. Any tips or ideas?

Google goggles didn't work as good as I would have liked. You take pictures of things and google tries to match it to something relevant. I never got any matches on common household items (but some of the suggestions were close).

Never tried the shopper though..

That sounds cool. Off topic but my Hero has battery life issues (doesn't last even a day lol). So I got an app called Juice Defender lite thats worked wonders for my battery. Usually by this time in the day I'm down to about 70% or so but with Juice Defender I'm at 94% Very Happy

Just thought I would throw that out in case you have battery issues too (mine are mainly due to constant use and overclocking of the CPU lol).

I'm going to look into that app. I have to keep it pluged in most of the day at my desk or it won't last. How sad is that. I'm going to try and get the phone done tonight so I can play on X Box Live tonight! Go team!!

I'm using Music Mod by Eliot Stocker (its built into the ROM I loaded Buufed 2.0b). I like it - works great.

I kinda browsed through the available ROMS for Hero and decided that ROM has all the features I was looking for built in (including Swype).
