According to Google, the Android Market now has more than 38,000 apps. That's plenty to choose from. The Android Market on the Incredible has a special storefront for Verizon-branded/sanctioned apps. These include Visual Voicemail, My Verizon, V CAST Media Manager, NFL Mobile and some other third-party apps such as Kayak, Geodelic, and a doodling program.


Mono headsets and stereo headsets are about all the Incredible supports. Sound quality through both is fine. I had no trouble pairing with devices, and music streamed to a stereo Bluetooth speaker actually sounded pretty decent.


If you know anything about HTC devices, you know that HTC is serious about the clock. It's there, it's huge, and it is mated to HTC's animated weather application. Even when you wake the phone from sleep, the time is easy to find and read. There are also a host of different digital and analog clock faces from which users can pick. The HTC Deck Clock app is off the hook. Basically, every clock-related function you can think of is packed in, such as stopwatch, countdown timer alarms, world clocks, etc. The weather is thrown in for good measure. It looks classy and is a breeze to use.


Believe it or not, Verizon Navigation is not on the Incredible. Only Google Maps is pre-loaded. Google Maps, of course, works just fine. The Incredible has the newer version of Google Maps, which offers turn-by-turn navigation. It works well enough, and is free.
