    Best Apps to use in Airplane mode- (while traveling on an airplane!)

    I'm getting ready to take a trip and will be in the air for 5 hours. What are the best apps to download to my Droid and use while traveling?

    Are there any movie apps- that I can download to my phone and watch in the air? I am traveling w/ a toddler (on my lap) so using my Droid will be much easier than trying to play a DVD on a full sized laptop.

    Any fun games too?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I have Angry Birds. I'll have to check out Bubble Buster. Does anyone know about any apps to download movies- and watch on my phone w/out streaming?

    Hook it to your PC and move a film over to the SD card?
    No Wifi on the plane?

    Just grab gameboid, gbcoid, snesoid, gensoid, whatever classic console/handheld emulator fits your fancy, and the app rom gripper (rom gripper++ can even find n64 roms!), and go to town on all those games you sorely miss.

    Costs no $$ unless you want to throw down 2 to 5 bucks for updates and loading save states.

    I recently flew Alaskan and the flight was 20 minutes late. They gave us free drinks and Wifi to make up for it.

    If you are going to watch a movie, Id use the combination of DVD Shrink(may need DVD Decrypter/AnyDVD) along with Handbrake to convert it to mp4.

    As a side note, watching a movie drains the battery fast. I get maybe 2 hours and then the phone is dead. Sucks if you have to actually call someone once you arrive.
