    This app sends your GPS coordinates, latitude and longitude to your friends via SMS or email.

    The link can be opened by any smartphone, iPhone and BlackBerry users.

    Can be used as a parking app to set the coordinates of where you parked your car.

    Long press the map to send locations other than your own.

    Allows you to automate just about anything. I have a profile that puts it on vibrate during church, turns on the gps when I open maps or navigate, and a more complicated on that turns the cell radio on and off during work hours to save the battery (my workplace is just on the edge of cell range and the phone searches for signal quite often).

    Just found this today. It solves ALL my settings access needs or issues. It is now my number one recommendation (ok, maybe number two next to AppBrain...apples to oranges..)

    I've spent a lot of time customizing my Evo to be able to have the fastest access to certain settings when needed. I've tried a lot of widgets and so forth but have always wished I had fast and direct access from the notification bar, especially when in the middle of using an app and needing to access them.
    I found one called Quick Settings in the Market today that is beyond perfect. I even proceeded to delete some other apps and widgets that this now replaces for me.
    It has fast access to system settings (including direct GPS) as well as ROM, RAM, Drive space info AND a flashlight allowing a choice of screen or LED. The settings and configuration are really easy and fully customizable. This type of setup should be standard in Android or all phone makers for Android!
    Check it out and make sure to use the menu/customize option for the many setting options not set to view by default.

    The cherry on top...: you can set the notification icon to be active but hidden thus saving space on the bar!
    Enjoy!

    Been using this for a while now. Try using it with Quick Battery. You get the battery icon showing battery status(several to choose from) that when you hit it, it takes you to Quick Settings. Hard to beat the combo of both.

    I agree with everything you said, it's a great app to have and I've been able to drop some apps because it just does so much for me.

    FYI - CESD, developer behind Pimlico Software, announced less than a month ago the imminent release of an Andriod client for Pimlical, the new cross-platform, desktop "version" (it's a new app really, built from he ground up) of the amazingly awesome DateBk6 for PalmOS. Can't wait!

    BTW, anyone have any luck downloading this app: Slide Screen by Larva Labs

    ME
    Datebk6 on a smartphone is exactly why I haven't gone to anything yet - I'm still running it on my Garmin iQue 3600. I'm now salivating over a Samsung Captivate - I hope it is sooner rather than later that CESD makes this happen!

    The ones I've found useful, so far...

    -ChompSMS - greatest idea ever
    -Barcode Scanner
    -Calorie Counter by FatSecret (especially love the barcode scanner function, this sets it apart from my SparkPeople app)
    -Cashflow (both paid and free, I use free) - checkbook register
    -NoLock (prevents screen lock, I look at my phone a lot and having it lock up is a pain so this is a godsend)

    I know there will be more, but these have been my base and most favorite.

    Ameelia, NoLock prevented the system alarm application from displaying the dismissal screen on my Evo.

    1. EasyMoney. This is the best checkbook app ever! I use it to track multiple expenses, set my budget and bill reminders. I've tried several other finance apps but they either do not allow me to have multiple accounts tracking or does not give me a detailed report of my spending.

    2. Barcode Scanner. Everyone probably needs this on their android phone, makes things so much easier.

    3. Tap Tap. One word, addictive.

    Hmm a few gems I've uncovered would be:

    1. USA Today.
    Keeps me updated and it's so easy to read!

    2. EasyMoney.
    I think people usually overlook the importance of tracking their finances.
    I was at one point of a time spending so much because I didn't keep track of my expenditure. With EasyMoney I saved a lot and stop spending on redundant stuff and no more late credit card payments!

    3. Slide Puzzle.
    Good time killer and keeps me awake!

    Music Junk - found it on the slideme.org app web site.

    It's free and allows you to easily download MP3s for free. Not that I would do such a thing. But if I did - this would be a good app for it.

    How is the repeat event functionality, and the event entry process? I might buy and try, but I can only do that once before committing

    Sems to go to stock, but does so easily and quickly. Seems to have complete repeat sequence. Also the "search" mode acts like an agenda.

    iSilo is a great app that I have used on every mobile platform I have ever had (Palm, WM, BB, iPhone)...
    You can download free books, and the desktop client will grab internet articles or even entire websites and convert them for later viewing, you can set it for specific times of day to grab the article...

    iSilo
    iSilo is the bane of book lovers. It uses a closed, proprietary format for which there is no way to convert back to a more universal format. It's only redeeming quality is that they do make a port for just about every system (unless, of course, you want to read some of your books on a nook, or a Sony reader, or any number of other readers that support standards but will never support iSilo's proprietary format).

    epub, rtf, txt, html, these are worthwhile formats for ebooks.

    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
    Ok, took the plunge on Note Everything (pretty obvious advantage for notes) but when I'm looking and reading about iRT Calendar, I'm not sold, especially at $6. So what is it that sets it apart from all the rest? Right now I'm just using the stock calendar along with Launcher Pro widget and that seems fine but lacking, so what does this do that has it on your best app list?

    Thanks for your feedback.
