Hi all,

Just switched to the Droid from a BlackBerry Storm. Not going to get into the usual "why doesn't my phone do this" it's a pretty big adjustment. I'm just looking for some guidance on the best apps for a new user. Also trying to find a good weather/clock widget for the home screen. Thanks!

check out the FAQ at the top of the droid forum page... its got a lot of the answers ur looking for usage. i recommend beautiful widgets for a clock/weather app it looks great and is customizable. also weather widget is nice its free to try but the donate version is a lot better. what kind of apps r u lookin for?

Try looking at the apps forum and just snooping around for about 30 min. you will find all you need and more.

Welcome to DROID world. Some much better then putting up with the Crap Storm.

You may also want to look into SlideIT, I used swype keyboard for a while, thought it was nice, but SlideIT is similar to swype

I use Shapewriter now for my small keyboard, and force myself to use the hardware keyboard to get used to it. I didnt enjoy it much on the first couple of days using it, but have since started to become more efficient...
