Post your suggestions here. Games, utilities, etc.

Once it starts filling up, I will move it to the LTF for permanent reference.

Yelp really came in handy when I was in NYC.

Enabled GPS on my phone and could tap Bars on the touchscreen and a list would pop up with distance, reviews, and a map to the location.

its like an instant addiction to crack.

Though, I've been stuck on 6-12 for about two weeks now and have almost given up.

Z4Root (for rooting Droid X and other assorted Droids)

No love for Shazam or SoundHound?

All these apps needs my face on 'em...




The Comcast Infinity app I just got has potential too.

PS Express is handy.

Talking Tomcat is fun with kids or drunks. iSamJackson is a waste because it's all prerecorded. Would be awesome if it worked like TomCat.

Redbox

Two most frequently used are Weather Channel and ESPN ScoreCenter

...And let's hold a moment for the Chipotle app....

I love the Xfinity app. I can change the frikken channel...

...on my DVR with my ipod. Not to mention the fact I can set up recordings and listen to voicemail.

Xfinity mobile + the Xfinity VT app are where it's at.

Do you have the 'Seasons' version too?

the XMas Advent calendar has just 2 more levels to beat, but of course you cant unlock them til Midnight (Pacific time!) of their respective date

On the regular version I'm currently on 5-3, had to start over from 1-1 last week due to new phone. I've lost a lot of sleep trying to beat certain levels

No on the holiday birds...

I'm frustrated enough with the regular version.

I'm sure 6-12 is pretty easy, though I can't seem to figure it out. Frankly, I'm not sure I want to invest more time in it either.

HeyTell - its like a mix between texting and talking (it saves 'chirps')

Its pretty simple... you use it like a walkie-talkie and then it goes to the recipient in the form of a text notification. Once they open it, they hear it. If the app is already open, it just auto-plays the voice message.

Its not realtime like a phonecall, but that has its advantages. For example, I was having a conversation with a buddy of mine while eating lunch... which allowed me to chew and swallow my food, and formulate a response in my head before replying. and its much faster than texting, plus you can detect the tone of their voice (important for sarcasm).
