    Forgive my newbness for I am a new Moto Droid user. I have a few questions that I would like to get answered if possible.

    1. Are their any good apps out there that change the way the home screen is layed out? (also do they work on 2.0.1?)

    2. Where can I find more micro usb cables so I can leave one at work to charge my phone if needed.... ( i have heard of monoprice.com) ?? (also are they called micro usb cables?)

    3. The App "Better keyboard" is it worth it? Does it really make it better?

    4. My last question is more of an opinion Q. If you had to recommend one app which would it be. (i am looking for some cool gem's out there :D)


    in closing I just want to say

    Droid > Iphone/blackberry


    And I love this god damn phone.

    Hy,

    good to see you here!

    1. Try OpenHome or aHome or GDE

    2. Just call your provider, normally they sell it as well

    3.I dont think so, but just judge it by using it ^^

    You can get microusb cables and/or chargers for cheap from many sources including Amazon. They don't have to be droid specific. Just make sure you get micro rather than mini.

    I have to name two apps: flixster and AP Mobile

    I highly recommend Motorola Cables to make sure that warranty stays void!!
    I had a BlackBerry no name Cable and it damaged my usb port on my Bold!

    Make sure you know what you do!

    One app to recommend:

    I'd go with handcent if you text a lot like I do. Much better than stock messaging app.

    Welcome to Droidforums! check in often, there are some great people and tons of knowledge here. As far as changing your screen, I strongly recommend Home++. Its a free app and its highly customizable. Use the search button on droidforums for Home++ and youll see whole threads on its use. You wont be disappointed.

    Apps: Pandora, internet radio
    FxCamera, fun camera app
    Dolphin browser, web surfing
    Handcent, best texting app on the market.
    Additionally, everything I have listed here are free apps!
