Yes, you have to buy & setup the hardware' but after that using it is totally free.

I refused to buy an Android phone until Sling Mobile for Android became available. Sling is one of my most used apps & IMHO is worth every penny.

Using it and loving it, works great on the X. The Moto widgets don't really work with it, but that's minor imo.

jmorton10,

What Digital Clock and Weather widget(s) did you
come across to resemble Sense 2.5?

Much Thanks in advance.

All the Best!

Beautiful Widgets & 'Weather & Toggle' Widgets are both paid apps (less than $2.00) that do a great job of looking like sense and also have a ton of free skins to look like almost anything.
'Fancy Widget' is a free one that looks just like sense paddle clock & gps based weather. It's been forced off the market by HTC, but is still floating around via torrent I hear.

Thank you and Thanks given.

Looking forward to getting my Droid X.

Re: Must Have DroidX Applications

Regarding the cost of a slingplayer setup, I got a Solo of Craigslist for fifty bucks. That makes it 80 bucks to get up and running. Don't forget you can use it from any computer too. Anyone with a cummute should look into it.

Re: Must Have DroidX Applications

One thing I don't like about the home screens is the rigid 4x4 grid. I was primarily a MobileShell user under WinMo, and the layouts were very free-form. Allowed a lot of creativity in design. I've found a few things that get me close to this:

More Icons:
http://www.ree-yees.com/node/40
Puts 4 Icons into a 1x1 grid. Has several widgets that will allow you to put up to 16 icons/toggles into a 4x1 (complete row) space.

Launch-X
http://android.yuvalsharon.net/launchx.php
I like the look of this one better than More Icons, but I had already purchased More Icons. I might still buy this one. More Icons has system toggles (bluetooth, Wifi, etc) that Launch-X doesn't appear to support. Launch-X does support some really cool multiple page options and layouts.

Both can be found in the market.

When I get real fancy, I will figure out how to post QR codes to these things

Re: Must Have DroidX Applications

Fancy Widget:
As I indicated earlier, this is a Sense Clock clone. I like it a lot. HTC has asked for it to be taken down, but I think it's still available for a limited time. I found a QR code for it:



Scan this with your barcode app and it should take you to the marketplace entry for it.
