Official Android Discussion Thread

I just wanted to discuss and share a few things with the DROID!

Apps - Here are mine:

Locale - After the update, this app has worked wonders. It changes your settings (wallpaper, ringer, volume, etc) depending on your location via the GPS.

ShopSavvy - Scan any barcode and look for the cheapest price of the item online and/or locally.

Where - App that tells you restaurants, hotels, gas prices depending on your GPS location.

Shazam - "Listens" to a song and tells you the name and artist.

Ringdroid - Cuts and MP3 and turns it into a ringtone. Very Nice!

FartDroid - As dumb as it sounds, its pretty damn funny!

GMote - Cool app that lets you turn your phone into a mouse, and gives you the ability to control your desktop or laptop.

WiFi Analyzer - Does it what the name says. It recommended me changing my channels, I did, and my network is running alot faster.

A few others worth mentioning: AK Notepad, Bubble (Level app), Compass, Rehearsal Assistant (Voice recorder and more)

I also wanted to share some wallpapers with you guys.. Hopefully you like em. I didn't create these, but I did resize it to fit the Droid perfectly. Enjoy!

(To install Wallpapers, Create a folder on your SD card labeled "Wallpapers" and throw all of them in there. Then go to Gallery, view the Wallpapers folder and assign the picture you want as your wallpaper)

I can't wait for an auto-tune app.

I love saving the soundboards to use as ringtones too.

Re: Official DROID Discussion Thread

Thanks for the wallpapers. I installed the last one and it looks great.

Some apps that I'm using (that haven't been mentioned):

Places Directory - I use Where as well and they are somewhat similar.

Astro - file manager let's you manage the files and directories on your phone and SD card.

NESoid and SNESoid - Nintendo and Super Nintendo emulators

Cardio Trainer - Keeps track of workouts. Great for running outside since it keeps track of your route via GPS and acts as a pedometer. I also use My Tracks which keeps elevation gain as well which will be great for hiking.

aCar - Keeps track of maintenance, fuel economy and more for your car.

Update on the camera autofocus issue:

Yes, this is exactly what is happening.

There's a rounding-error bug in the camera driver's autofocus routine (which uses a timestamp) that causes autofocus to behave poorly on a 24.5-day cycle. That is, it'll work for 24.5 days, then have poor performance for 24.5 days, then work again.

The 17th is the start of a new "works correctly" cycle, so the devices will be fine for a while. A permanent fix is in the works.

The camera is working great after the update. The focus is alot better (always getting green corners) and pictures are coming in crisp from all lengths. The only thing that sucks is that the flash is so bright..

Regular with a 2 year contract is normally $299 with a $100 mail-in rebate (if you order online at verizonwireless.com they have an instant rebate.)

I got mine for $150. $100 instant rebate + $50 New Every Two discount.
