May 12, 2010, 4:29 PM
I have more than this but most are just soundboards and useless stuff.

My useful ones:
Pandora - internet streaming radio (shortcut, and widget, i use the widget)
MP3 download - download music for free
Cubed Music Player - shows up in the app market as the number 3 when you search, puts all my music with album art its great!
Car Collection background - great cars and pics, using the cadillac cien right now
advanced task killer - useful, but does hang up every once in a while
retro clock - widget to give you a digital clock, also includes retro date widget that I don't use
accuweather - came on the phones home screen
Chuck Norris facts - or I'll roundhouse kick you to the fac...

Ooh, how does 'Where's My Droid' work? Looks like something useful!

if you lose or misplace your phone and its on silent or vibrate it lets you use another cell phone and send a text wit the secret word and then your phone will ring on high volume.

I just got it, awesome little app.

Another application I recomend for those looking for games, is to get the GameBoid GBA emulator and the GBC emulator (both by yongzh), and then the RomBuddy application to find ROMs. Total is about $8.00 for them all, but unlimited gameboy games is well worth the price. Keyboard recomended but not required!

I use GameBoid all the time on my CLIQ, which is nice because the dpad is on the left. Very Happy

I've been thinking about downloading them for my Backflip. The only thing turning me off is that I have to pay for them. How well do they actually work??

Some of these I already have. I downloaded the Cube Music Player based on your review, and asked it to "fetch" the album art. It got "stuck" on looking for the art for my Mission: Impossible ringtone. So, no big deal, I figure just delete the ringtone and all will be well. Wrong, it's still stuck looking for the album art for Mission: Impossible. So I delete ALL the ringtones, my ringtone app, AND the music player. However when I re-installed the ^3 app, it's STILL stuck searching for the album art for Mission: Impossible. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP! Thanks in advance. Smile

OK, never mind. In messing around, trying to consolidate my GMail and Blogger accounts, I'm now locked out of my phone and will have to take it in to a store to have it hard reset. That'll solve any problem! Very Happy

dang beast!

I'm just running a lowly 1.5 Backflip. I have the little guy of the android phones.

Its not the size of the phone, its what you do with it. Its what I have to tell myself. But I get a lot of the apps.

Jul 5, 2010, 2:03 PM
Laughing I love the way you put that - about the size LOL.

I'm sorry for you that you have the deformed Backflip.
