    I am a new Droid owner. I find it alright but very complicated. There are apparently still so many thing you can do with it but I find it hard to get past wallpaper, simple apps and email. Anything you can recommend as far as downloads and things to make it a little more exciting for me would be great. I'm just a little clueless.

    Thank you! I have never used a form for anything before so I hope this will be helpful. I am rather technologically challenged you could say.

    For example:

    What is the best browser? I was recommended SkyFire, but also the Dolphin browser.

    And since the new update, my predictive text is on (I think), but doesn't work.

    And are there any fun or handy apps that anyone deems as a must have?

    Thanks! :)

    I use the stock browser, it meets my needs. Opera has a new browser that many like.

    Check your keyboard settings for predictive texting. I use the HTC keyboard and it works well, for me.

    Here are a few old links that may help:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid/9779-master-google-android-40-tips-tricks.html I'm not sure if everything in this link is still applicable but you may get some good tips.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-general-discussions/21025-show-me-your-widgets.html on widgets.

    Hope this helps.
