Apologies as I've not done a lot of research yet. I have an HTC Incredible, through Verizon - I've had it for about 2 months; but I've really only scratched the surface of what I know the device can do.
I was a die-hard Palm lover (until their newest devices stopped being Windows 7 compatible) - but I did love the desktop interfaces that Palm offered.
So, here are my questions...
Three questions on buying/installing apps
1. Is there any way to "try out" an app before being on the hook for it? There are a lot of apps that look GOOD, but until I can put them through the test, I won't know.
2. If I download an app, do I "own" the app? For example, like iTunes, if I switch devices, later, I still own the app. Or, is it keyed to the device?
3. I remember reading that you can install apps, etc. to the 8gb flash memory in the phone -- yet, I've not seen that in the manual (only the marketing materials ... hmmm...) any suggestions on how to do that?
Three questions on default People/Calendar apps
4. Is there ANY way to force the "People" app to sort by last name?
5. Is there ANY way to remove the standard "groups" in the People app? Family, Favorites, Friends, VIP (?)
6. For some reason, although I've set the calendar app to default to "Day" view, every time i start it up, it heads to month view.
Finally - the recommendations. As I said, I was a huge fan of the Palm interface - everything integrated -- calendar/contacts/tasks. I don't see the same thing available here. What I'd LOVE would be one app (although, three that work well together would be fine) that integrates all three functions. I'd like to be able to work within that app and have it update Google Calendar and Contacts (for synching purposes); but basically, I'd like to have a task; see it pop up for that day, and then, drag that task to the calendar for the time I'll work on it that day. Currently, it resides in it's own calendar, above the timeslots on Google Calendar.
Thanks so much! I know I have a lot of reading/researching to do - these were just the first, easy, starter questions
