There's an app for that

Postby Eulogic on Mon May 31, 2010 9:37 pm

I recently got a Droid and like it. While not quite at the iPhone level, there are numerous fun apps for the device. Too many to keep track of, really.

That's where this thread comes in. Most people know of Shazam and Pandora, but there are plenty of mobile apps that are equally (or more) cool, but not as popular. Though I personally have a Droid, iPhone apps are also fair game.

Zombie, Run! (Android) is an app that uses Google Maps to generate zombies as obstacles between you and a chosen destination. You first select the speed and density of the zombie population, then choose your destination. Keeping track of you through your phone's GPS, you must avoid the hordes while you make your way to said destination. It basically turns walking into a pretty fun game. There is multiplayer if you have friends with Android phones.

this app tells you which way up you're holding the phone, which can be useful if you occasionally find yourself holding it upside down, and that's giving you trouble

Kingpun says "It's a phone... it's for making phonecalls..." which would be a great argument if he had anyone to call...

I love my droid. There are lots of great apps coming out all the time, too.

Above all, you need Advanced Task Killer. Trust me on this one.

Pokedroid gets a second from me. It talks!

I like the skyfire browser, because until we get Froyo, this lets us watch Flash videos on the web.

The emulators for droid are very good (NESoid, SNESoid, GENSoin, GBCoid, and GBoid), and there's an app that allows you to use your Wiimote to connect via bluetooth and act as the controller for those emulators.

VLC Media Player Remote is great if you have a media setup at home.

Meebo IM is good, as it lets you manage multiple IM accounts (AIM, Facebook, MSN, etc) via your phone. Musical Lite is a neat music app, has a metronome, pitch pipe, piano.

I use Twidroid for tweets.

I also use Aldiko, a very nice ebook reader with a great selection of public domain stuff.

Linda File Manager is a must. It does a great job managing all your files, lets you access them very easily.

Also incredibly useful is The Weather Channel app.

Oh, and all of these are free =)

I use xscope browser and astro file manager. Astro does everything I want it to. I'm not totally sold on xscope, which seems slow at times, but it does have pinchzoom, which I like.

Yeah, advanced task killer lets you put a little widget on the screen, so you set your preferences for what apps get killed, and when you hit it, it only kills those ones. Like, my alarm clock doesn't get turned off, or my messaging. It's a huge time saver.

I'll try any browser with pinchzoom. I only use astro for file management. For task killing, I use the Advanced Task Killer widget.

What's a good drawing program? I'm using MaplePaint right now because it seems to have the most options and a nice ui, but it doesn't do everything I want it to and it is a little laggy.
