Here I will list out the applications from my prior posting, a collaboration of all those that posted, so everything's not so jumbled up. These are all links that in one form or another a user on this forum will use or download. I Will be transfering over the apps, and trying to post the apps with appropriate links. Some apps may vary slightly from the ones you stated (if only in text form) as i'm just doing a simple search on androlib.com for them. Trying to make a good place to help people out come the first day the droid arrives.

If there are any apps / or suggestions for this thread please PM them to me whenever you get a chance. I will try to keep this updated as much as possible.

I have opened this thread up for direct suggestions on apps or widgets to add to this list. Any other questions or comments on this list are much appreciated. Please feel free to post any apps you think would be beneficial to others. Once I have added your apps I will remove your posting, just as a warning.

If i delete your postings from here, please don't be offended, i'm merely trying to keep it uncluttered.

Thanks for the list New2u.

Any chance you could notate on the list which applications are free vs paid? Maybe just a symbol or something?

Appmanager doesnt seem to work with the Droid, presumably because it won't work on Android 2.0. Any way to get it to work?

I found an app last night called Timeriffic. It lets you set a timer to turn on and off features like the ringer, vibrate, wi-fi, bluetooth, brightness, and volume at specified times. Say you have a meeting from 9-10am. You can set it to be quiet at 9am, then have it go back to full function at 10am. If this meeting is every day M-F, you can create a profile so it only happens on those days. I haven't tested it yet, but it looks very hand for those who need the phone to be quiet or noisey at specified times.

When you do run it for the first time, it has profiles already set up and will set you phone accordingly, so remember to delete them or turn them on/off or your phone will go into modes you may not want.

Just about all the apps on this list are free. There might be one or two that people have said were just AMAZING, but you had to pay a dollar or two for them.

I am curious if you might happen to know of some Android apps that might do timer functions.

One of the things I did with the storm was use the "Auto On/Off" feature which turned the Storm on and off for times I know I won't use it, conserving some battery power with that.

I am also curious if you know where we can inquire about some modifications to existing apps, like the Gmail Sync and what not. It looks like their standard app for Exchange has a timer for sync, but not for Gmail, so it is either you have it all on or all off when it comes down to power conservation methods.

I don't know specifically of an app like that yet, but i'm sure they will get one out. There is no sync for Gmail because it's all push, everything is (should be close to) instant.

Great - is this thread basically for all the best/ must have apps on the market?

I was going to make a thread for all the "must have" apps, unless this thread is it

This is a combined list of applications that users have said that are must haves for them, alot of people's must haves that they have stated are on this list, and those who post about apps being must haves are usually ported into this section for others to see also. I just wanted to post a centralized location where people can get an idea of what apps others are using and calling must haves so they can research what they are for themselves and see if they want them or not.

is there an app that:
1. let's me add phrases and words to the suggested words as i type?
2. airline flight status apps?

1) You can add words to the user dictionary it uses to pull words for suggestions, also as you type things, words will kinda add themselves, like your last name, or place of business.
2) "For flight-status, there's FlightStats for Android.
See: FlightStats - FlightStats Mobile for details and a QR link to scan.
Doesn't look as useful as FlightTrack Pro on iPhone though. (hopefully they'll do an android version)" was posted behind your posting.

Appmanager doesnt seem to work with the Droid, presumably because it won't work on Android 2.0. Any way to get it to work?

There are alot of apps that haven't been ported over to 2.0 yet. While most apps can and will work just fine from the previous version, some will not, and those updates have been rolling out, The apps I have installed, since friday, there have been about 6-7 apps that have already had updates come out. So just remember to go into the market and look at your downloads to make sure that you have up to date on the current apps.

Does anyone know of a good email app that lets you put in a pre-made signature at the end of each email? Or how to do it on the one that comes on the phone? I can't figure it out... :mad: (I use yahoo mail.)

Thanks!

I had seen it prior to looking right now, so chances are they may have taken it off.

That is so far not an option on the email system we have right now, though I hope that's one of the things they fix come dec.11th, seeing as many people have questioned about this.

Interesting... There is a signature option in the GMail app but not the generic Email app.
