Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

Not sure how Droids compare to iphones but i use my phone all the time and only charge at night. But if im using navigation i usually plug in my car charger, and if im teathering my computer is charging it.

One thing that sucks though is after about 6-8 months our batterys start to suck pretty bad and you need to charge more often...... im just starting to get there with the my current droid.

I have the original droid with the stock battery, and it is really starting to suck now. I have to charge it multiple times a day, especially if I'm listening to music, streaming music or using navigation. I need to buy a new battery.

Yes... I upgraded through costco and got 2 samsung galaxy s phones for 99 bucks the day they came out. It was a very pleasant experience and it saved a ton.

Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

^Ive always gotten my upgrades through Verizon. Im starting to think the better route would be to buy from retailers....

The Galaxy Nexus looks really nice, especially with that curved screen but im officially waiting for the Droid 4 (i really need hard keys) which should hopefully be out any day now. Im really hoping its initially offered through a retailer like Costco or Amazon Mobile and i can save 100 or 1/3 of the price.

I also got a question if anyone knows a bit about android stuff.

I am against locked bootloaders because they just seem to go against my principles, although ill likely never root or do anything real fancy with my phones so at the end of the day they likely wont impact me much. The thing that drives me nuts though is unremovable bloatware. Ive heard the newer motorola phones are supposed to have a option to remove it (or permanently hide it).

So knowing that I probably wont want to try and hack a locked bootloader does anyone know if bootloaders or UIís ever get updated by the phone company; in this case Motorola? It seems a big selling point for androids are what Android OS the phone is using, the newest being Ice Cream Sandwich which will/is replacing Gingerbread. So if I buy a newer phone like the Razr or the Droid 4 which both run Gingerbread out of the box, but with the promise that it will updated to Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as fully ready, will there be any updates to the Motorola UI when the new OS is ready? Are UIís tailored to the Android OS theyre sitting on top of?

Basically should a Galaxy Nexus UI always be (in theory) smoother on Ice Cream Sandwich than a Droid 4 UI that was originally made for Gingerbread, or will the Moto UI update so that its also designed for the new OS?

Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

Bumping an old thread here.

Does anyone know of an app that would record screenshots of your phone and let you basically create a video tutorial (with audio)?

My buddy's business has developed an app and he wants to create a brief video that showcases its features

well both android and iphone now let you take and save screenshots. you could make the video on a regular computer with youtube. I know it can be done, not sure the best software though. I know there are several free ones to create the youtube vids.

Running the iOS 7 beta now and... it's ugly as hell. Huge step backwards imo
