PowerAmp is blistering in its eq output,

TuneInRadio for a spectrum of internet radio

dolphin browser – its a good browserPosted 6 years ago
marvin spectrum emulator – to tell you those games really were shyte
sky+ – when you forgot to record something
mytrails – OS maps which work offline
rocket bunnies – good game
intercall conference dialler (well, it is a work phone)BezSubscriber
In alphabetical order:
Battery Graph – useful when figuring out what eats battery
Dolphin HD – best web browser by a mile
iPlayer – you knows it
iNap – if you often fall asleep on the train
Quickpic – because the HTC gallery browser stupidly always starts at your oldest pictures
RealCalc – a proper calculator
Tasker – 110% of awesomeness
Twicca and Tweetcaster – the best Twitter clients IMO; former best for single account, latter for multiple
Viewranger – the best logging, navigating and tripcomputering app
Vignette – for setting up a page of shortcuts to useful settings, including fixed focus modes for fast shootingPosted 6 years agothreeekMember
Evernote – Great for dumping loads of info into and being able to search it on a phone or PC browser. You can send it pictures, text, and web pages from a PC or smartphone, and tag them. You can then searc/read them easily. It also does optical character recognition if you take clear enough pictures, so that you can search the text of a manual page or document that you took a photo of. Useful for taking pictures of the scraps of paper that sometimes pass for manuals, so you can throw them away.
Llama – Once you train it, it recognises different locations and changes your phones settings appropriately, i.e Wireless off at work, bluetooth on at home, etc … can save batteries and the faff of doing this manually.
And another vote for Viewranger, just getting into it, but very impressed with this app so far.Posted 6 years agoStonerSubscriber
cut the rope isnt free, it’s 62p to me.
Just bought it. It had better be good sir, or you are on the naughty step! 😉
EDIT: BTW, my top tips:
Gin rummy: very powerful AI gameplay.Posted 6 years ago
RVolumeControl: easy to control volume.
Real Calc: Proper scientific calulator
Toddler Lock: keeps Jr from bothering me in the pub 😉
Handcent: SMS, better than HTC
Gmail mailbox counter: great widget that shows you unread mail number on the mail icon
Tricorder: for wifi and 3G/GPRS sniffing
WiFi analysis: for wifi sniffing
Antennas: for GSM/3G mask mapping.StonerSubscriber
not right now. Just been tinkering on the ol solar thermal stuff.Posted 6 years ago
My favorite is the ‘Ultimate Farts Soundboard’- theres a multitude of amusing parps and they all have ridiculous names like ‘Colon Powell’ or ‘Tuna Melt’.
You can even set them as your phones message alert- great when it goes off unexpectedly in a crowded lift!
And then theres the fart bomb…….
Hours of childish fun for sad people like me!Posted 6 years agooinkMember
I have a fair few, most of these are always running in the background and i still get over a days worth of use.
winamp – loud music player and access to shoutcast streams – great for playing music in the background whilst you do other things, and works seamlessly with my bluetooth headphonesPosted 6 years ago
quake3 droid – great game and graphics
asphalt 6 – another great game, reasonable graphics
google goggles – for identifying those odd things
kindle app – for reading on the train
bbc news app – for keeping up to date
trillian – all my messenger clients into one location (yahoo, gmail, msn, skype, twitter, etc…) synced with pc
ebay – obvious
kies air – turns phone into server for downloading stuff to pc /backup/managing via browser
voice commands, esp driving mode – for reading out texts etc whilst driving etc…dan1980Member
On my Samsung S2:
GoSMS. Better than the standard SMS clientPosted 6 years ago
GoKeyboard. Better than the standard Samsung S2 keyboard (Gives you a comma on the main keyboard screen!)
BatterySolo – good battery display
Opera Mini – fast browser, useful when you have limited signal
Advanced task killer – keeps my battery happy
Thetrainline – free train time app.
Mytracks – Handy gps logging thingamygig
Angrturds -because the bloke at work likes playing it
Plants vs Zombies (dubious legality!) fun “tower defence” type game. If you go looking for the .apk, make sure it’s the 74MB version, not a really dodgy rip-off 2.5MB one.
BeautifulWidgets lite – A useful clock/weather widget that does what the HTC clock does.
IMDB – Handy pub argument setting app.OllyMember
Set to monitor 6 music podcasts, and whenever its in wifi range, downloads them.
mine is set to store 10 only, and dumps the old ones.
