    Stock android apps instead of HTC replacement apps

    Got my wife's Incredible yesterday and I've been using a Moto Droid. Hers only has app icons for the HTC music, contacts and calendar apps, even though the widgets for the standard Android apps are available. Is there a way to access and use these apps instead of the HTC versions?

    Sorry if it's been asked before. I tried a search but I wasn't sure what search terms would yield results.

    I don't understand, you can't use standard Android apps on a HTC Droid?

    Yes you can use Android apps on the HTC INCREDIBLE. He is talking about things like the Android calendar. HTC has their own calendar which is much improved over the Android calendar IMO.

    Cool, I'll be getting mine a couple days. Look forward to migrating all my contacts etc. I hope it's painless from a Blackberry Curve.

    Install Google Sync on your Blackberry, sync the contacts over to Google, then when you sign into your new Droid/Incredible, they will be copied over automatically. Easy peasy.

    Sorry offtopic.

    You can

    Just install a different home then go to the market and d/l the apps you want.

    They just rooted the Incredible too so it will only get better now. I cant wait till I toss all the Sence Ui into the trash myself. It just slows the phone anyhways. Only thing I do like is friend stream but its a full page widget and I cant use it on sweeter home where'd i'd put it on a springboard so it wouldn't be there all the time using that entire page

    try out launcher pro on there I have it on my rooted DI and its working nicely, more stable than my favorite Sweeter home preview 2.

    Which apps are you referring too buy the way.

    Migration of contacts is painless

    Just signup for a Gmail account before you turn off your old phone. it will get all your contacts if you allow it on google clouds then when you turn on the DI for the first time and login it will sync.
    did for me but I did come from my original moto Droid

    a freind was on verizon on a BB storm I told him to get gmail he did and when he recieved his new N1 on tmoble it synced for him too.
