    Default How can I set default app associations?

    I'm a new G2 owner, I came over from the HTC EVO and I was wondering if there was a way to set app associations on the g2? On the EVO there was a setting that let me set my default browser, mail client, messanger, youtube/hyperlink app etc. is there any way to do this on the g2?

    Absolutely — these default app association settings are built into Android. If you have multiple apps installed that can handle a given action, you should see a dialog prompt asking which app you would like to use. You can reset this association in Settings > Apps, by selecting the currently-used app and using the 'clear defaults' button.

    Usually when performing certain tasks or open links, the phone will prompt you to select a default method of opening said link or app. Click on the one you like, and select always.
    Like Pat said, you can reset preferences within settings

    Thanks. Is there any way to view what apps I currently have set though, or is there only an option to reset it?

    Settings > apps > menu > reset default apps

    This will show you a list of default apps.

    Just download "Default App Manger" from Play store. it does everything you need for free. I use it now and then and it works great. Simple and easy to use.
