Here's what I got from my understanding: You see a picture or media file or something else on your phone browser. You then just click and drag and drop it off in some box? I use the stock browser and didn't see a box or anything and I didn't see how you can drag stuff either.

I'm getting forgetful in my old age, so I find a little app called COL Reminder very handy. Sure, you can put events in your calendar, but that can be a tad clunky, but COL Reminder is cool because you can set it to remind you to dial a number from your contacts or make a text note to read at a certain time, or even alert you when your parking meter is about to expire.
Anyway, it's free and the developer continues to improve it, plus I think it genuinely counts as one of the more truly unknown apps, which this thread is all about!

Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

ClearCheckbook: Awesome bank account manager that syncs to a website companion. No personal info is needed (name, account numbers, etc...)
Our Groceries: shopping list that you can share with other people. The lists automatically update on all phones. Great when wife and I are out and about seperatley and we need to know who picked up what. Available for Blackberry too....not sure about other OS's
Craigslist: Craigslist Notification lets you set search parameters then will notify you when new posts are available. Allows for multiple cities, replies to posts and much more. Free and Pro version.
NewsRob: Access to Google Reader is an awesome layout. Widget available with Pro version
Those are my "must haves" right now.

Best apps no one knows about:
NoteEverything (especially paid Pro version): yes, I know everyone makes a fuss about Evernote, but I like this better. Textnotes, Paintnotes, Photonotes, Checklists, Reusable Checklists, storage to SD card, excellent develper support.
iRT Calendar replacement app: Makes Google calendar do so much more in a nice UI
OI Safe: My favorite password storage app

I like Car Mode - touch the icon and it changes your incoming phone calls to speakerphone (I don't use bluetooth.) - you can turn it on and off from the notification bar.

I might end up with a list of more than 5, but these are my most frequently used apps:
Artis Fancy Contacts Widget
Android Agenda Widget
Lithium Music Player
Oh, and the Quit Smoking app is a wealth of useful information too. I've save $481 since June 7! LOL

How about a good facebook app? I can't seem to find a decent one
- 07-19-2010, 12:08 PM #348
(facebook touch site) ... gives a better UI than the Android version of facebook and should be able to be updated independent of platform. Only glitch I have encountered is that only some of the contacts are listed in a page and the right side arrow to go to more is not selectable. I tend to search for a contact anyway, so not a deal breaker. Worth a look.
There is a case for a number of web centric apps to be replaced by well thought out, touch based mobile sites but that is a wider debate ...Thanked by:

"ireader" is a good book reader. "Calendar in status" bar is nice. "Col reminder" a nice alarm app. "FireKeys unlimited" is pricey but really helps, especially since I am not used to the onscreen keyboard. It enables you to create your own dictionary and generally makes typing much easier. . I like "group ringtones", can set ringers for all members of a group. "Spillmap" -- i live on the Gulf and this tracks the spill. "No lock" does what it says; the switch on the EVO is such that an accidental turn on is not likely. "World Watch" is good for travel -- gives time and weather for lots of cities. "autorotate on-off" toggles autorotate. Mostly found and installed usieng "AppBrain"

I always have to pimp , it's a great concept - stream your media over the Internet to anywhere. There's an app (I bought it) but you can also try browser access, apparently works very well on Flash/Froyo. You'll need a running on your home computer (free).
The is great. Puts my CA friend's iPhone seismograph app to shame and wins extra geek points.
I've got a few techie apps no one seems interested in, but they're worth mentioning just to get them some attention. helps to pass the time until IPv6-ready LTE is available. The dev for needs some love.Galaxy Nexus (VZW)
Motorola Droid X (WiFi)/Motorola Droid 2 Global (VZW)
Motorola 9505A (Iridium)/HP Zeen (WiFi)
