    This will be my first Android phone. I have been scouring Appbrain.com to find some cool applications for the past couple weeks. So I pose this question to you android pros: "What app do you think is excellent for impressing friends and family? What app will make them want an Evo/android also? I'm not talking "best or most useful" I'm talking pure impressibility

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    There's an app.. (I forget the name, sorry) where you can control a girl bouncing on a trampoline. Pretty sweet app. lol jk.. There's quite a few to be honest. I would sort by Top Rated to be honest.

    There are a plethora of Live Wallpapers in the market..YouTube "live wallpapers" and see what they've got, I think that speaks volumes as to innovation..

    Also be sure and show them "Compass Mode" in Google Maps, it uses your GPS, Accelerometer, and Digital Compass to give you "real-time" Street View that displays based on where you're facing

    The shear customization options for Handcent was enough for me. If that's not good enough, pure messenger widget is great and so is any home/launcher replacement will again show off the customization features of Android.

    Why are you worried about impressing others? Aren't you getting the EVO for yourself to enjoy using? Don't get caught up in the "I have to impress others" game...

    Well, I am surrounded by mostly non-technophile women. The product of being a sexy beast and also having 5 sisters So a big shiny screen on its own does not make their heart race as it would you and me. Therefore I need to show them something a little more substance oriented

    Thanks for the psychoanalysis! However, I want my friends and family to enjoy the device and see the benefits of owning one. I want the device to do well and utterly crush the Iphone; Sprint to do well and keep giving me my stellar rates and service.

    It has more to do with sharing excellence with the people I care about and less to do with any insecurities I may have. I have a trophy girl and a sports car for that

    Look for Metal Detector. Run that, lay your phone on a table, and pass objects over it. Metal ones will make the phone vibrate. Non-metal won't. Doesn't work with aluminum, but most other metals work.

    I did that last weekend with some iFriends and they were quite shocked and impressed that my phone can detect metal. Seriously, try it, it works!

    Ha ha, funny stuff. I downloaded it on my older sisters Cliq at dinner tonight. To our chagrin, her kids started innocently playing with it thinking the robot and vibrations were cool. She looked at me with an exasperated expression and said "great you have my kids playing with DILDROID!"

    There's an app called "remoteDroid" that runs off wi-fi and controls your pc/laptop.
    So for me, that would be the best show off app if I'm at the house, considering the laptop is hooked up to my TV.
    Dunno if the app actually runs on the EVO though.

    Do you know anyone else that's getting the EVO? If you do, you could show them the video chat function!!
