    I am finally getting a Droid phone, a Droid 3. Hopefully the mailman will show up soon, lol.

    First smartphone too? The past year and a half has brought many surprises with my phone. From cool apps to the cool things it could do.

    One of my favorite "show offs" is still to open a new text message and use the voice to text function while saying "how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood" fairly quickly and then watch as others were amazed it displayed with the correct spelling and all.

    I used an app for a while that let you leave the phone on the carseat and it you could "activate" it with a command, then tell it to send a text. It also told you you had an incoming text and would read it out loud. I haven't used it in a while now and have switched roms a few times since. That's the cool thing about these phones. Every day seems like Christmas as you discover new tools and things about the phone. amazon.com/apps for a free app every day too.
