    I love the icons. Also the widget: a full calendar with icons is available, and two clicks gets to a nice agenda view. There is also a "next appointment" widget that gives time until the next appointment and also details. I have contacted the developer twice with questions and both times received a quick answer.

    Audio Manager Widget - allows you to see the volume levels of everything, and to adjust.
    Newest version of MiniInfo allows you to do the same!

    Dazzle Configurable Switcher - widget that you can choose the size, and choose what it will do - ringer, sync, WiFi, BT, GPS, airplane, or brightness.
    Oh how I wish this widget was complete! I love that it gives you so many options to choose from. But I don't understand why the GPS toggle can't simply turn GPS on/off (just like the Power Control widget does).

    If possible, I'd also like to see other toggles included, such as one for Flashlight, Auto-Rotate, LED Lights, and Always On (screen).

    I'm going to try a new widget switcher, too, and read something while searching for it that there's a Google prohibition against a one-button switch for gps for some reason. Why oh why is anyone's guess, but I'm gonna keep looking for one! Maybe one will make it under the fence and then we just don't update it!

    DOODLE JUMP update

    received in my email:

    Thank you for your email. We understand your frustration with the current version of Doodle Jump on Android. We too are frustrated. Here is the situation:

    In terms of issues that have been mentioned in the Market Place comments, we have had a build ready to go for some time. Thus far the licensor (LimaSky) has not given greenlight to the builds due to discrepancies between the iPhone and Android version. With the iPhone platform, developers are developing 1 single build to fit one device, whereas with Android, we cover over 90 different devices which come in many sizes and form factors. This is why it has taken us a very long time to get the update out to everyone.

    In our current state, we believe we have achieved about 95% of what’s needed for the greenlight. We are very, very close in other words. And even though it seems that we have neglected this issue for too long, the situation is the absolute opposite in reality.

    Recently, September 2 & 3, LimaSky and GameHouse were physically together in Helsinki working to get the absolute best Android game to you. Given our track record with the long delay, we don’t want to commit to a specific date for when the update will happen. One of the great things about the Android Market is once we have approval; the updated build will go up immediately.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will play Doodle Jump when we do launch the update.

    You know, I can't remember the last time I saw a corporate communication to a customer/client/end-user that was so clear and informative. There's usually a lot of euphemisms, vague promises and off-point cheerleading. The apparently honest "here's the deal" is great to see.

    Sorry, wanted to get that off my chest.

    Handcent SMS
    EStrongs File Explorer
    Google Voice

    The first four are the ones I've found the most useful (though I have a couple of others I'd suggest putting up there, but they're mainly for those of you using SSH - ConnectBot and AndFTP). Google Voice is promising to become more useful with the widgets it comes with allowing me to more easily switch between sending calls either via my cell or GV number. Thing is, I can't remember the last time I got voice mail ...

    Oh, and don't ever download Hypnotoad. It's a piece of cra-ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!

    TuneIn Radio - Android app on AppBrain
    Music Junk

    TuneIn Radio is cool because it collects AM and FM internet radio stations from all over the world, and its easily searchable by topic, station, location, or even language.

    The 2nd link, Music Junk allows you to search for mp3s on your phone, preview and download them. Usually has good variety

    I use free caddie pro. one time fee of $14.99 or something. Has a simple interface that gives you yardage to green, bunkers, hazards. Also, has a fly over view allowing you to see the entire hole from above, and allows you to click anywhere to get yardage to that point. Also lets you keep your score and upload to save your scores.

    For the price, I think it is the best app that gives me what I want. Be warned, the gps burns through your battery. With stock battery, you get 18 holes, and then I had about 30% battery left. With extended verizon battery, I get 18 holes and still have 70% battery left!

    Oh, and they let me transfer my fee from windows mobile (I had a samsung omnia, what a piece of crap btw) to android. No questions asked! Highly recommend.

    Hope this helps.

    Just found a new one today, hopefully not a repeat within the 35 pages so far.

    Multicon Widget- allows four widgets in the space of one. You also have the option to shortcuts within the multicon so that you can have four direct call numbers or messages. Check it out, its free!
    Great widget! One quick question: How do you set direct call numbers?
