    Default New GS3 user, thoughts?

    Hey y'all. I just switched from an iPhone4 to the GS3 and am loving every minute of it so far. I went kicking and screaming to the iPhone from the PalmPre (launch) just to see what the hype was about, and the fact that the Pre was pretty much squashed once HP took out Palm. What I would like to know is what apps are a must with this phone and if you can direct me to some great threads that have the tips and tricks to get the best out of this phone.

    My only issue is that I can't use doubletwist to sync my GS3 to itunes because I use a Mac, unless one of you good folks know the trick. Thanks in advance.

    The author of the app admitted he sent the wrong files to various app stores. It's since been fixed and works fine.

    Here's his take on the issue: GSam Labs

    It was updated Sunday but I hadn't experienced any problems previously.

    Good stuff.... thank you all. Finding so many ways to use this phone. Feels good to have a little more control over my experience again.
