So I got the Droid last night and spent the better part of my time becoming acquainted with it. Stumbled across these forums, which have been a big help! =)
My question is, what do you recommend as 5 (or so) must have apps for the beginning Droid user that deal with the functionality of the phone, not really a "stand-alone" application?
I downloaded, played with, and ultimately deleted a number of applications, and I'm starting to understand some categories of apps that deal with the functionality of the phone, such as handcent, which is an sms app, and Dolphin HD, a browser app, and UI (Theme) apps etc, as opposed to lets say, a calculator app (which doesn't really deal with the functionality -- is more "stand alone").
So right now I am using:
Handcent (SMS application that replaces the stock Messaging app that comes with the phone)
Dolphin HD (Browser Application, replaces stock browser)
And I think that's it in that department. I'm very satisfied with Dolphin HD, but I am wanting to see if there is a different SMS application to try other than handcent.
What else do you recommend for the beginning Droid user in terms of replacing existing applications on the phone?
Also, I downloaded Helix to try, and was not able to understand what it allowed you to do moreso than the standard UI, or in place of the standard UI, and wondered about opinions in this department regarding Helix, or why even go with a program like Helix.
