    You can just edit your original no worries. Yeah i've been trying to search through forums and apps and everything to see what i'd want, most of what i'd like has been stated 2-3 times already lol. you are the first one to talk about weight apps, which is something i'm sure alot of people could use, either for themselves or a loved one. Thanks for bringing it up, i hadn't even thought about something like that until you said it.

    I actually use a really cool one on the Treo called My Personal Diet. Solid little app.

    No matter where I put it, thread wise...yes, can't wait for SlingPlayer on the Droid! I have it on my WM phone now, on a Treo 700wx with that small, square screen...

    I am assuming the ad posted at the top means that Sling is at least headed in the direction of an Android app. With the success of the Droid seeming quite likely, they'll probably continue, and hopefully do some coding that takes advantage of the Droid's amazing screen.

    I just went to a verizon store here to buy a droid, and found that Flash isn't supported, so... no Hulu, no sling.com, no slingbox.

    I asked if slingbox would be supported soon, they said, "No, not likely, because it would compete with our mobile TV app."

    Disappointed.
    :mad:

    Hope they're wrong about that. I'll buy one for me, one for my wife the minute I can watch my slingbox on it.

    Flash in 2010

    That will be AWESOME.

    I will hold off for now, but I WILL get my droid when it happens.

    Thanks Miami1683!

    TV.com app has a lot of videos and full episodes from CBS and some old classic TV shows. It also does Gamespot videos, Stupid Web Videos (or something like that) and some others. Neat app.
