Apps you can't live without?


Dec 14, 2011
I am new to this board, and new to the Motorola Triumph. Since I know people here take their phone seriously, I was wondering some of your favorite apps. So far my favorite are

Dolphin Browser HD
Music Junk
Multi Sms
Speed Test

Some ones I'm looking for are a good music player ( one that can download album art, and let me change the name of the track/artist in the application), possibly a more intuitive camera app, and others I can not think of at this time.

Also, on a side note, I have my facebook synced to my phone, but my contacts do not have their facebook pictures displayed , or links to their profiles. If someone could help with that or any suggestions I would appreciate it very much.
Kindle App (Amazon books)
CoolReader (epub books)

EnhancedEmail - Good email client.

CalenGoo - Nice views and seems to be fully functional.
BatteryMix - Nice graphs of power usage and lots of details when you dive in.
UltraCron - Cool timer, makes me wish I had more stuff to time.
Phandroid - Able to read this site on my phone.
GoSMS - Great if you ever have have the need to send a single SMS to a group.
SwiftKey X - best $0.10 app ever. Now I can actually enter data on the virtual keyboard.

Below is a list I posted over at HowardForums.

Of course, since thing is a VM thread, I'll also add:

- Minutes Checker: Virgin Mobile

Here are a few of the free apps I use, in no particular order, all from the regular Android Market:

- Parcels: Track packages, with notifications

- TV listings for Android

- Key Ring Rewards Cards: So you can scan your rewards cards, and not have to keep them all in your wallet.

- WiFi Analyzer

- My Tracks: To track your walks and such via GPS.

- Bluetooth File Transfer: A file manager, and you can also transfer via BlueTooth to other phones, your PC, and other devices. I recently used it to transfer some files off my old phone to my new phone via BlueTooth.

- Pandora internet radio

- GasBuddy - Find Cheap Gas

- Battery Watcher Widget

- Missed Call Reminder: For Phone, MMS, SMS messages

- Craigslist: Automatic notifications for your searches

- QuickPic: Much batter than Gallery

- DiskUsage: Graphically shows what is using your app space and SD card space (among others)

- Remote WAV Free: For playing WAV formatted voicemail messages you receive in your e-mail, like from Comcast/XFinity voicemail.
