Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

So i thought id start a thread about apps you come across and really like or find really usefull.

I have a droid but it seems like there is almost always something comparable the iphone market and vice versa.

Here are the ones i like and actually use regularly:

tapatalk - heard about it on this forum. How else would i be able to to get on thewarpath when im taking a bathroom break? I actually like the layout of forums better on tapatalk then the real layout.

fastfood finder - sometimes you need to find the closest mcdonalds asap and get navigation to it in one click

urban spoon - shake your phone to find a close by restaurant to go to that night. You can set cost, location and type of food so you can narrow down your options

redskins news - constant updates on redskins news

the weather channel - whats the 10 day forecast?

TiKL - use your phone like a walkie talkie and make sure every at the grocery store gets to hear you and your friend laugh about that nasty girl you dont really remember going home with last night

trapster - avoid the cops

pandora - tunes man

tunewiki - listen to mp3s. This is the best option ive found so far

nubinews - most news sources in 1 spot. Im a major current events and news junkie so i got most news apps for the major sources. Out of all of them i think Thomson Reuters "news pro" is the best, but nubinews lets you skip around to different news sources pretty easy.


Alright what apps do you guys find really useful?

Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

Nice thread. I use Android 2.1

tapatalk - I agree, gotta be able to see what's going on!

shush! - pretty nice simple function when you silence the phone it lets you set how long, great for movies or other times so you don't forget to turn the ringer back on

HD Dolphin browser for the internet. Just like how it works
------ shiny shake for hd lets you shake the tabs to the left and right.

Handcent SMS - lots of nice functionality

K-9 Mail is my mail program of choice

the barcode scanner app is cool, lets you scan a barcode and get reviews of the products while you are shopping.

agree also on Pandora and trapster

Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

Also craigslist notification is a real sweet one. You put in what youre looking for and it notifies you whenever something meets your criteria.

Example: Personals: Casual Encounters: Key words: Hot, l18, blond, petite. Then whenever a girl fits your description you get a notification. It also works for the other stuff you might use craigslist for........

Re: Favorite Apps for your Smartphone

I can not say enough good things about the Samsung Galaxy platform. Apps I Like:
  • Timerific - Switching on/off phone features depending on time and day.
  • Appeak Poker - Great multi-player online Texas Hold'em game.
  • Listen - PodCast app by Google
  • ONN - Onion News Network
  • Redskins News
  • SportsTap and ESPN ScoreCenter - For scores...don't ever never use these app's widgets, they will suck the life out of your battery like nobody's business.
  • Opera Mini - Nice browser with support for sending compressed content.
  • Robot Defense - Desktop Wars like game.
  • Layers - App that points you the right direction if you're looking for an establishment.
  • Last.fm - Best music radio App IMO.
  • Google Voice - For those calls to Canada and my business partners in Nigeria.
