    you're missing out on the coolest apps...

    psxroid - PS1
    gameboid - Gameboy
    Snesoid - SNES

    Just download game ROMs off the internet and these emulators play them perfectly. Better than any game app Iv found on the app store! And you can store the ROMs on SD Card.
    Iv also got

    Qype - Searches for bars/restaurants/banks etc. near you + ratings and reviews - free
    SmoothCalendar - simple calendar widget - free
    SwitchPro - easy widget to control bluetooth/wifi/3G/silentmode/sync/brightness etc. - 60p
    AstridTasks - cool task program and widget - free
    Abduction - Like DoodleJump on the iphone - free
    BattStatt - battery % widget that tells it in words e.g. "seventypercent" - free
    Tajm - time widget like battstatt so like "Seventeen minutes to eight pm" - free
    ScoreCentre - score widget and app made by ESPN, can add your fave teams from any league, displays real time scores and stuff. Awesome. - free
    RemoteDroid - install the remotedroid program from their website and the app, then you can use your phone as a wireless touchpad for your PC/laptop - free http://www.remotedroid.net/

    I have been thinking about them games, but im shit at all that Dloading send'n sync'n rooting bullshit so i didnt bother.
    Tajm is pretty kool ive got it under my calender (Jorte.)
    The battery widget ive got is Gauge battery widget, its like a speedometer which is pretty kool.
    SDMove is a good app, lets you know what programmes/apps etc can be transferred onto your SD card to save space on your phone.
    Multicon lets you place 4 small icons in the space of one normal icon. Great space saver, lol ive got 7 home screens but need more.

    The market is ok, i find it much better to search a website for apps as they have more options to search such as latest content, most downloaded in the last 24hrs / 7 days etc. www.appbrain.com

    Also I find its better just trying an app rather than going on ratings and comments as some apps dont work with certain phones as they do others, you can all ways uninstall it.



    What phone has everyone got?
