I thought now that there are a few of us now using android devices and there seems to be some interest from the non android users that a software thread may be a good way to share software information.
Any facebook users the facebook ap has just been updated to v.1.4.0, this brings its group and places feature into the Android app.
A must have for android 2.1> is dolphin HD browser
, fantastic piece of kit, and to pair with that is Bookmarks to SD app, it backs up your bookmarks.
If your a user of LastPass, password manager, there is an app for that (sorry) works with stock browser and Dolphin HD but there is a fee, i think its £1 a month, but worth it.
There is a host of file managers but my recommendation would be Astro
file manager, simple yet effective.Barcode scanner
, is a must as soon as you start the phone, come in useful when u come across site that recommend app’s they mostly have a barcode link.
I also like the simple Notes
app, lets u create notes and back then up to SD, very handy indeed.
greader is a great little rss feed, that is my personal fav but others may disagree.
Another must is the GPS Status and Toolki
t, it does a lot but the main reason i use it is because it has the abity to soft reset the GPS chip, it dumps the file that get clogged up in there sometimes.
For the F1 fans there is F1 Live Stream
, this is not the official, that is very expensive but the Free version, that, streams the times in real time, good when watching the race.
Last but not least form me is Sky+
app lets you remotely record, i dnt use it much but always glad its there when its needed.
