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?

Does it work the same as rooting and using the hotspot feature?

So I have the Google Nexus S....not really smart with these new smart phones....just getting used to typing texting with the touchscreen keypad and still annoying considering I've been using the slide out qwerty (sp?) keypad.

So anyone root w/ this phone, as previously posted, the sprint guy says not to root your google phone etc. I dont know how so I wouldn't do it myself, but will it allow me to access more wifi etc?

Sprint reps will always tell you not to. If nothing else, you break the warranty on your phone if you do it. (And there IS a possibility of screwing your phone up while trying to root it, though it's fairly small as long as you follow whatever rooting instructions someone who knows what they're doing gives you.)

To me, the biggest benefits of rooting are:
1. Having access to root-only apps. Google "best android root apps" or something like that to get the idea, but WiFi Tether is the big one. I also love Titanium Backup, as it lets me force apps to the SD card, which is a big help on my phone and its puny amount of storage.
2. Being able to install custom ROMs (software). This probably isn't as big of a deal with the Nexus S, since it's pretty clean (in terms of being "pure" Android rather than a Sprint-modified version). You can get some performance boost from some custom ROMS, though.

The process is somewhat technical, though, so it's just a matter of whether those benefits are worth the hassle for you.

Oh, and consider trying Swiftkey X. It's $5ish in the market, or free from GetJar. It's a great alternative to the stock Android keyboard.

I don't know shit about rooting man. All I know is using my 4g on here is faster than stealing the neighbors wifi.

The nexus S is one of the easier phones to root as it is a Google developer phone. Google posts how to unlock the bootloader ( three simple words ' fastboot oem unlock ')

Rooting will void your warranty but there are internal sprint memos telling techs that they must support/ fix rooted devices. YmMV

I got an nexus S for my wife and have yet to root it

I root for wifi tethering and to use titanium backup to backup my Apps etc

On my MoPho I also rooted to hack the webtop mode to work without any webtop add on devices.

If I had a Nexus I would unlock the bootloader to run cyanogen but otherwise the pure google experience is something to writers home about.

If you have no interest in free wifi tethering or running custom firmware then you can just leave it be
