    Do not forget Llama from the app store. Great app that can detect and trigger events based on the cell tower your phone is locked to. It can auto-magically turn on/off WiFi and nearly any other setting in Android.

    I seriously spent the last hour just browsing the app store. Being an Android newb, this is all amazingly new to me! So many cool things out there.

    1) Touchdown - for syncing to Exchange email.

    2) The new browser looks pretty cool, but from what I've seen, I still think Dolphin browser is going to be more polished and feature rich.

    3) Go SMS Pro - Same as above. At the same time, I'm hoping that ICS's SMS app is good enough. I have concerns about Go transmitting all my data to a China server based on a discussion I recently had with one of our better known experts here (nuff said).

    4) Sonos - if you have a Sonos player, you will understand that one of the most awesome HiFi systems in the world is controlled by an equally awesome app.

    5) One of the several apps that display a callers city and state for inbound phone calls.

    6) The second this phone is rooted - the first app to go on the Galaxy Nexus will be AdFree.

    7) B-Secure Folders - totally dope password storage app that syncs seamlessly with any computer you've configured it to do so.

    8) I'm still thinking I will use Launcher Pro over the stock launcher. I should probably branch out and try some other launchers as well. I also like to hide apps I will never use, like Google Books, Latitude, and other Google apps I find more suitable replacements for in the Market.
    Cory I remember about a week ago when you posted about tapatalk not playing nice with ICS. Has that issue been resolved because I use that app religiously.

    I will be upgrading from a DroidX. I want to continue to have a Tethering app for use of the Unlimited Data plan. Is anything available for that on the Galaxy Nexus?

    Default Now that you have your Nexus - What Apps are you getting?

    I'm trying to figure out what the app is that makes the LED glow when you receive notifications. Anyone know?

    Anyway, what other apps are you getting and loving?

    First, the Galaxy Nexus does have a Notification LED.

    A great app for setting repeating LED, vibration, and sounds is Executive Assistant

    Yes the GN does have a working notification LED I'm using it currently on mine.

    Got to setting and then display and check the notification light. If you are running SMS Pro you can go to settings and in basic click to enable New message notifaction as well. Same goes for any other notification you may want.

    I'm still looking for an app to repeat notifications for texts and missed calls and alerts for anything you don't check. I don't understand why this trivial thing is still left out on the best of phones. Doesn't anyone miss it? I can tell no one does cause there's like 2 apps for this.

    help?

    Its AMAZING to me that no one seems to care about notifications, this has been on every other phone I have ever owned outside of Android. I thought they would have written this into ICS. Anyway there is a program called Missed Reminder I used for the Epic 4g but it doesn't seem to work on ICS properly. I gotta email the developer.

    Also, I found a cool little program called "Gotya" that I didn't see mentioned here. It takes a pic if someone jacks your phone and it emails the pic to you. You would then use seekdroid and locate the phone and then .....

    If your in NYC you go get your boys and go get your phone back.
    If your in Texas you go get your gun and then go get your phone back.
    If your in Cali you make a call to a guy (who owes you a favor) who goes to get your phone back.

    Everywhere else you call your local PD and they take care of it.

    evperry, I'm using Phone Alarm right now. It will only notify you 4 times unless you upgrade to pro. It's ok, it allows you to control, sound, frequency, vibrations and colors for the LED for separate things you want repeated.

    This is a handy app for using the Wifi Hotspot on the Galaxy Nexus. It's a one-time purchase, no monthly fee, and it doesn't require root:

    https://market.android.com/details?i...rs.wifihotspot

    Or search Android Market for "Wifi Hotspot and USB Tether" by SVTP

    Anyone using the Kindle app having problems? I can open it 3 or 4 times, and then it just freezes on a black screen, or the opening screen with the kid under the tree. Force close, and then it works again for 3 or 4 times, and have to do it all over again.

    Already uninstalled and reinstalled. Any thoughts?

    Oh, and keeping in line with the thread, I will compile a list of other apps.

    Can anyone make a suggestion to me for an app that I can use to automatically switch on and off wifi based off of my GPS location. I use VZWs on my Bionic. When I tried using it for the Nexus it tells me it is not a Verizon phone. LOL

    Not to be "that guy" that doesn't help you and also questions your request...but, why would you want to keep GPS on all the time but turn wifi-off? Wifi is not a huge drain on your battery, but GPS is.

    Again, sorry for not being helpful
