1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.

    good point! I will look into those. I did download the app Droid TV to record episodes of shows I like to watch- to my SD card- but if my battery runs out- it may be for not....so i might have to throw onto my laptop after all! either way- thanks for the heads up!
