    Allright first post on this side of the Cenral world (Precentral user). Just recieved my first Android powered phone Samsung Epic 4G .... etc. a couple of days ago. Former Pre User.

    Because I bought the phone through Amazon I got $5 to spend at the Amazon Appstore. Being that I have limited experiance using Android, wife has and EVO 4G. What should I spend my $5 bucks on. All opinions count just looking for some ideas that I might not have seen in the browsing of the appstore.

    Thanks

    Definitely get the amazon app store. I get most of my paid apps for free. They have a new one daily.

    Not speaking from experience, because I haven't bought the bullet (so to speak) of purchasing the app, but I hear Tasker is the android equivalent to Mode Switcher, an app I dearly miss.

    Yeah mode switcher was soooo good. So many options it was almost too much. But so great.

    I got my favorite that I had on my Pre, Newsroom!

    That was my first app for Android!

    And use the Android 's 'Market' app!

    Search for just the free apps of you want to.

    Swift x keyboard is free @ Getjar (as is Beautiful Widgets, but that one hasn't been talked about yet in this thread )

    I'll add a +1 for SwiftKey X. The text prediction is great and saves me a lot of time. If you want to put together a great lock screen, I highly recommend Widget Locker ($2) it lets you put customer sliders (tons of themes you can use) and add a lot of useful stuff. I started a thread about lock screens

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...ckscreens.html

    That also includes a few images of what people used as well as a couple of links to XDA for some custom themes.

    As someone else noted, you have to get the Amazon App store for your phone (free) and every day they have a paid app that they give you for free. I've picked up quite a few full verisons of apps I was using a free version of.
