    Many of you have posted questions here. Many others have answered your questions, including the Rescue Squad. The RS has decided to ask some questions of its own...and turn it into a contest.

    First, lets see what we have for prizes, then lets see the rules.

    2 prizes in alphabetical order:

    Ok we know you'd like to win one of these fine accessories to rest your phone in so onto the contest rules.

    1. Sunday afternoon (May 23rd) at 1pm EST a post in this thread will ask a question. the topmost item will be given away to the first person who Names that App correctly.
    2. Sunday afternoon (also May 23rd) at 3pm EST another post in this thread will ask a question. The other item will be given away to the first person who Names that App correctly.
    3. Each "Name that App" will have a series of clues followed by a link to post your guess.
      1. Prior to the start of play a countdown will occur in this thread every 15 seconds for 2 minutes.
      2. Respondents will have 30-60 seconds to respond to each new posted clue. After that the answer thread will be closed and checked for a winner.
      3. The first member to post the app's correct name wins a prize.
      4. one post per clue per member. Post twice and none of your posts count.
      5. Spelling counts.
      6. Sorry, admins and mods can not play.

    If you like this concept, bump this thread to keep it it visible. The two above vendors, who also happen to be supporting DF vendors, are sponsoring this contest and would love the visibility. Other vendors may be encourages to donate to a future round of "Name that App" giving more folks a chance to win a cool app or accessory for your phone. While The RS team will bump it a few times during the day. You all doing so shows your support, thanks!

    Anyone vendor or developer wishing to participate in a future similar giveaway can feel free to PM me with the item you'd like to donate.

    Please show your support for our current sponsors!

    Ha, I don't get to win:)

    When I got the phone my work paid for the car and home dock, so the home dock sits in front of the table the TV rests upon. Either one of the above docks would look great in that location.

    Mike..check your pm ;)

    Hey! Not fair! I wanted to play also! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    Seriously - I can honestly say that were it not for droidforums.net - I'd probably know less than 10% of what I do know about my Droid phone as well as the Android system and related apps! Which is why I feel obligated to donate my products as prizes for anything that helps promote this site, it's wonderful membership and the very professional and knowledgeable staff! :) mikey
