Droid X on the way
 
I will have my Droid X up and running this weekend. Any of you guys have one? What apps do you recommend?

Good choice!

Swype

Tapatalk Pro
PicSay
ESPN SportsCenter App

Just a few I use on a daily basis. Hope you enjoy the new phone bro.

I really like TiKL that six storm recommended. There is another PTT app called Hey Tell but it seems to drain the battery quick and it isn't instant like TiKL seems to be. It does record any missed voice messages though which is kind of cool.
I also like Scanner Radio
If your phone doesn't have Swype definately get it. Mine came with Swype and I love it.

Thanks six_storm. I will definitely pick up Tapatalk (have it on my iPod, it's nice).

TiKL looks nice. I have seen ads for Swype before and have read that Droid X supports it. I can't wait to try it out. :D

I'm using swype now. It seems like it won't take too long to get used to. I like it a lot. I love this phone. It's like a miniature computer haha.

It's nice! It's twice as nice once you get a custom ROM and unload that crappy moto ui. Download launcher pro ASAP. You won't be believe just how much faster that app will make the phone.

I hear the phone is nice too :bleh:

Get that star-map app, or whatever it's called on Android, and Pandora :bleh:

Just bought LauncherPro Plus. It's a very nice app.

Swype is absolutely amazing once you do get used to it. It has a low learning curve because of the layout of the keyboard and although it is kind of hit or miss when you're on a roll with swype you really are on a roll, its so much faster than normal typing.

If you do any remote management of servers / device then you'd definitely enjoy

Subdroid (SVN repo browser)
ConnectBot (SSH / Telnet client)
AndFTP (FTP, SFTP, FTPS client)

Also, for games, Angry Birds and the seasonal Angry birds, hands down the best game i've played on here.

One more thing... if you use Google Chrome as your everyday browser check out "Chrome to Phone", its a fairly novel, but interesting and possibly useful app.

Re: Droid X on the way
 
Thanks snowman. I don't manage any servers or anything so I don't see much use for those apps.

Here are the apps I have purchased so far:

LauncherPro Plus
System Info Widget

I have gotten Angry birds and other free apps through the marketplace too. This phone is so awesome. I can't believe I tolerated my WinMo 5 phone for so long. What a POS it was. :lol:

The only app I am missing is a Sirius/XM streaming app that will carry Stern. I had an app on my WinMo phone called SelectRadio that worked great. My iPod touch has PocketTunes, another great app, but there isn't one for Android (yet). The app released by Sirius/XM doesn't have Stern due to contractual agreements. Maybe when he resigns he will agree to let them stream his show.

ViN86 12-11-10 07:09 PM

Stern worked out a license agreement so the official app will carry his show, so problem solved lol.

I have had this phone a week now and I'm still tinkering with it constantly lol. Best $100 I've ever spent. :D
