Being a newbie to the Droid world, I've found some really good apps and then some pretty bad apps. If you are a Droid user of any kind and use the Android App Store, here are my picks that every Droid phone should have installed! This list does not include apps that are pre-installed on the Droid like Gmail and Facebook, etc..
Pandora Internet Radio is simply awesome to have on your phone. With only 16GB's of memory on the current Droid phone, you don't necessarily want to be filling all of it up with music. Pandora is the easy answer for this. Once you type in an artist, it will play songs from that genre and most of the picks are great! I prefer the Irish Rock channel. I type in Flogging Molly and I'm set!
I make a lot of restaurant reservations. Let's say I'm in the city and my fiance wants to go to a nice dinner. I can make the reservation right from my phone and meat her at the restaurant all with the touch of a button. This is a must have for foodies!
Twidroid is a great Twitter app and although it has a paid version, the free version works just fine. It's easy to check tweets and make them and your phone lets you know whenever there are new ones. This is a great app for all of my fellow Tweeps out there!
Let's face it, if you text a lot it can get expensive. eBuddy makes IM's and Texts virtually free. Texting and IMing is completely free when using eBuddy and having this along with Gmail talk, my texts have gone down a lot. This is another must have.
I'll admit it, I really wish that the Droid would hurry up and release ESPN MVP or SportsCenter like they did for the iPhone and other Verizon Wireless phones, but for now, I'm really pleased with SportsTap. The articles are great and it's wonderful for a big sports fan like me to get all my news on the fly.
Say goodbye to all those ridiculous yet useful discount cards you have in your wallet, giving you a big pain in the butt. With Keyring, you just scan or type in your cards barcode and it's magically stored in your phone. All you have to do when they ask you if you have a Borders Rewards card is whip out your phone!
Having Amazon.com on your phone is just genius! Whenever I go to a store and see something I like I always say to myself, "They'll have it cheaper on Amazon." Now all I have to do is whip out my Droid and order away and say 'no thanks' to $40 dollar Blu-rays at Borders right in the store!
