    Bionic Apps/Tweaks/Suggestions

    Apps. There are a ton out there..and everyone has lists of *Gotta Have* or *Best* ,and how about tweaks? Those lists are scattered and sometimes seem to work better on a different device or within a different phone setup. I often wonder what apps other BIONIC users run, or at least recommend to fellow BIONIC users.

    These are some of the main apps that follow me through upgrades/FDR's, etc. There are others like a few games, but these are the main ones.

    NEEDS ROOT

    Titanium Backup ★ root https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...TitaniumBackup
    /system/app mover https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...systemappmover
    Notification Toggle https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ficationToggle *More features when rooted*
    ROM Toolbox Lite https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iberty.toolbox
    Script Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....scriptmanager
    AdFree Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.adfree
    Root Explorer (File Manager) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.rootexplorer *IMO the best file explorer*
    WiFi Key Recovery https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ifiKeyRecovery

    General Apps

    The Weather Channel https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...eather.Weather

    MX Player https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...videoplayer.ad
    Handcent SMS https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndcent.nextsms
    GSam Battery Monitor https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.gsamlabs.bbm

    Customizing/Image capture and editing

    Camera360 Ultimate https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.Camera360
    Camera ICS https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lynx.cameraics
    Gallery ICS https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ynx.galleryics
    Color Touch Effects https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...onkeys.paintfx
    Minimalistic Text https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...il.minimaltext
    GO Launcher EX https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....go.launcherex *Tried others.Nova,Apex,etc. Keep coming back to GO
    Great HD Wallpapers https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...athdwallpapers
    Wallbase HD Wallpapers https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....citc.wallbase

    Browsers

    Chrome https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.chrome *Still getting used to*
    Dolphin Browser https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...k.TunnyBrowser

    System tweaks that I'm still trying to figure out if needed

    Motomizer Free Edition https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...addy.optimizer *ROOT*

    Hidden Features FREE ICS Edt. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...aturesFREE_ICS


    Since a lot of us are running ICS now (Thanks Sam for the culmination of work from some great minds which is now the HOB) , we now have Smart Actions. There are suggested rules and blank rules, but at least for myself, they seem too generic and not as customizable as I would like.

    What Smart Actions or other tweaks are some of you using to prolong battery life and overall system performance?

    I would not recommend Brightest Flashlight Free as it has been flagged on others forums as a possible data mine app. Why does a flashlight need your precise gps location?

    I would recommend Droidlight by Motorola Mobility. Its made by our very own OEM and doesn't have any silly permissions.

    I've always been fond of Droidlight; it's a solid app and is from Motorola. No shady permissions, either.

    Camera Zoom FX- Stock Bionic camera was a certified POS.
    Dolphn Browser- "Swipeable" (is that a word) bookmark menu is quick and easy to use.
    Dropbox- Moving pics and files to and from a PC without plugging or being at home is great.
    FoxFi- Becasue I'm cheap.
    Nextflix, Pandora, Slacker Radio (recent updates made it usable), iHeart radio, Tune In Radio- These are the real reasons we get smartphones.
    QuickOffcie- I still use the free bloatware version. Reads pdf's and excel docs easily.
    Speedtest- For bragging rights to use against iphone 4's, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile users.
    Swiftkey 3- Amazing keyboard with spell check and predictions. Goes on sale often on the play store.
    Weather Bug- i like it better than the Weather Channel app. Displays degrees in the notification bar (not a clunky box like TWC), widget is quick and easy to use. Nice 2 x 1 size,
    Redbox- Find what you want, before you leave the house. Saves a trip to the store.
    Beautiful Widgets- Tons of options, you can always find something you like or just mix it up. Goes on sale a lot at the play store.

    I could be mistaken, but I believe Adaway is a superior product to Adfree. Adaway's block list includes 4 lists(one of whichis Adfree's), so Adaway should block more ads. I know I used Adfree initially, but I kept getting ads on my games, so I went to Adaway and the ads stopped.

    Ironically, after I upgraded to ICS yesterday I notied an ad in one of my games. I didn't even know it had ads. LOL. Sure enough, with the upgrade to ICS Adaway's lists were removed. Reenabled Adaway and the ads are gone again.
    Expected ICS late Q3 or Q4(2012). I called it back in February 2012!

    Now Expecting JB late Q2 2013. I called it back in October 2012!

    I recommend romtoolbox pro over titanium backup. Fewer problems with botched restores. It also includes a bunch of other utilities such as a good ad blocker. I am ES File Explorer is another must have. It has too many great features to list.
