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

    Hi everyone I've had my Droid for awhile now and I feel that I'm not getting the most out of my Droid. So I decided to join after finding this forum. I was wondering what some good apps are to have to and I've noticed that my phone seems to be sluggish from time to time and was wondering how I could fix that. ThanksThanks

    Welcome to the forums!!

    Some of the apps that I use are Beautiful Widgets - I love their big home widget with clock and weather! Noodles is a To Do list app. MixZing is a music app. Solitaire, Crush the Castle and Angry Birds are my games. Folder Organizer is for changing the stock icons of the apps I put on the home screens. Launcher Pro Plus is my home replacement app. Co-Pilot is the navigation app I use (I normally use Navigon, but it isn't working with the new Gingerbread rom I installed). Gmail, you already have this one, is what I use for all my emails (pop3 included). Tapatalk is what I use to read forums on the phone and xScope is the web browser I use. I have used and like Dolphin HD Browser too.

    Anyway, that's sort of the core of the apps I use on a daily basis.

    Good luck and enjoy!!

    Forgot to add that when the Droid 1 lags or slows down, a reboot will normally help. In fact during the 16 months or so that I've had my Droid, I find that it likes to be restarted every day or so.

    Welcome! You've already received good advice from my friend, BayouFlyFisher's. I find that the best way to keep my Droid snappy is to clear Dalvick cache once a week.

    Thanks for app suggestions, no I haven't rooted it yet bc I'm not sure what u mean by that. Yeah I have a task killer running. Its the one with the little green Guy that they told me to download at the store. Should I not b running it? Where is that cache at to clear it?
