    ^^ All great apps ^^

    For addictive games......I would recommend Shoot U!, Papa Stacker, and Space Physics :icon_ banana:

    I prefer ChompSMS over Handcent but that is just me.

    I never found a use for that app. Seemed like a waste of space. I lock my phone as SOON as I get done with it. I don't need a program running in the background, using battery power itself and memory to do that for me based on whatever way my phone is laying down.

    I agree. On the occasions that I have now had to reclaim my apps, Screebl is number 1 on my list.

    A lot of people swear by it, but like I said...seemed worthless to me. If you just lock your phone when you're done, it saves more battery than Screebl...because screebl has to run in the background whereas my finger is solar powered.

    Its for turning off autodim, while you are using it.
    Other than that, it goes to 15 sec timeout.. nice battery saver compared to not using dimmer and having to "lock" the phone. It doesnt even show up in battery status.. so its not a "battery drainer"

    :p

    It uses some battery whereas my finger uses none...so it definitely uses more battery having it run than not.

    I really don't see how anybody can say anything bad about screebl. But you're all entitled to your opinions, no matter how wrong they may be.:icon_ devil:

    Haha...I just found it to be bloat on my phone when I can just lock it with my finger. I had it installed for about a day.
