    Default New droid user, Looking for guidance

    Hi all,

    Just switched to the Droid from a BlackBerry Storm. Not going to get into the usual "why doesn't my phone do this" it's a pretty big adjustment. I'm just looking for some guidance on the best apps for a new user. Also trying to find a good weather/clock widget for the home screen. Thanks!

    I use Shapewriter now for my small keyboard, and force myself to use the hardware keyboard to get used to it. I didnt enjoy it much on the first couple of days using it, but have since started to become more efficient...
