Killer apps for Android?

Since there's an iPhone version, I figured I'd start a Droid version. After being handcuffed by Sprint's SERO plan for the past two years, I finally ordered my LG Optimus S last night. It'll be here in about 24 hours. So, what toys should I play with when it arrives?

that's exactly what i was thinking. i had situation the other night when that would have been perfect. i also would like to play a youtube playlist or some other audio, and have it output over hdmi to the tv with a visualization like winamp or whatever. that'd be nice too

The mobile app is not capable of HD. With my video quality set to "best" on my Netflix account and 20+ Mb speeds via WiFi neither my phone or tablet have ever gotten HD quality video.

The HD version of netflix will only be on certain phones

as a side note the Photon is MUCH better at HDMI out than the EVO on all aspects

Let's hope they manage compatibility checks through the market rather than the app so we can sideload (like I'm forced to do on my Xoom).

If you're not using Tasker, you're missing out. Big time. I never toggle anything, because I've already set up the Tasker rules to direct my phone to toggle based on my typical behavior. It's great.
I decided to check tasker out based on this post. You say it helps your battery life? I read a lot of reviews that said they loved the app but it cut their battery life in half.

I've never had battery issues with Tasker. It makes my phone more efficient, which in turn improves battery life.

If you don't have HDMI out on your phone, you can't. Plus, you need an app to mirror it and none of that will work unless you're rooted.

I just dumped my PalmPre after 2 1/2 years. One of the things I really liked about it was that the developers programmed it to spoof an Apple device when hooking it to my PC through the USB cord. I would open Itunes and it would show up as a device and I could easiliy sink my playlists to it.

All of my music is in Itunes.

I just bought the Samsung Galaxy Touch. What is the best way to my my Itunes music onto my phone?

Thanks Fish. I wasn't able to get it to work and someone in the comments posted about isyncr which was easier to use and only $3. I wouldn't have found it without you.

BTW, I love the SGS II. It blows the Pre out of the water.

I looked it up and it doesn't which sucks I don't have cable but found an app that plays some of the college football games from ESPN. That would have been huge.


On another note: Whats the weather widget the HTC HD2 & Evo use? I love it and would love to get it on my Nexus S.
