Android Apps and Tips please

I'm having soooo much fun with my new Android. I have just downloaded some free apps. Games etc. I've got Skype now, Angry Birds, Solitaire and Bubble Shooter. My kids have already said goodbye to me! LOL.

What freebies does everyone have that they really like and where did you get them?

If you like to read, you can download lots of books, even some modern books for free. I've got books by John Grisham, Janet Evanovich, and The Left Behind series as well as some Louisa Mae Alcott and Agatha Christie books. Have fun!

it's a game where you start with 4 elements, water, fire, wind and uh..one other...and you combine them to create other elements, then combine those elements to create other elements. Things like life, moss, men, sandwich...lol it's fun to see what u can come up with :). It's a free download.

Alix, I have the Droid, for now, but didn't your phone come with a "Market" icon? That way you go directly to where the apps are and can download what you want directly to your phone. Here is where I go to look through the apps though AndroLib, Find all the applications and games available in the Android Market for your Android Phone, Droid, Galaxy S etc...

pacanis, yep it sure did. However, some of the apps that are on that market are free elsewhere. It also didn't have a Skype app (which I just found elsewhere) so I went searching.

I have, however, just done something nasty to my phone. LOL! Somehow, no one can now hear me when I call. I'm just a big dead zone to them. CRAP! I wonder if that was the skype app? I'll figure it out...I hope!

alix, google a search of top 30 free android apps.

you must get open advanced task killer. it's great to help save battery life and when you don't know how to get out of a jam or shut things down.

also, get google sky maps. the coolest app for looking at the stars at night.

Not free, but I downloaded iCam on my pod. Now I can monitor my employees from home on my days off.....hehehhe :)))
It's a nice little security device as well. If your webcam senses any movement or sound during the middle of the night it can alert you on your phone and you can immediately see what's going on.

How do you keep from setting it off yourself?

I can't set it off because I'm not at my place of business during the middle of the night. I'll be at home snoozing.....:)))

I love my Android phone but the built in alarm is garbage. Alarm Klock is way more reliable and lets you set multiple recurring alarms. I would highly recommend it.
