all rest i just have but i just got the droid yesterday. so well see as time passes.
I want to add Handcent SMS to my list as well. This app is just an awesome alternative to Google's native messaging app. I had previously read about it on a thread poll asking which messaging app you used, and honestly, the default messaging app is good enough for me, but Handcent splits up your texts and automatically sends 2 separate texts when you reach the 160 character limit. I'm sure as most of you can tell, I'm rather long winded, so this was a must.

When I downloaded it I was completely overwhelmed with the options and some of the customization options. You can change the background, color of chat bubbles, change the LED color, blink pattern, and so much more. It's great! One of the best features is the pop up box when you receive a text. It displays the sender, their picture, the text message itself, and offers you a few options straight from the box, one being a TTS feature which just reads the text aloud via that sexy robotic voice some of us have come to love, hate, or just cringe at. Anyway, Handcent SMS. Highly recommended.

Re: What are your top 5 apps?

Great Lists so far, heres some that i use that haven't been mentioned yet:

1. Sports Tap - great for checking scores from pretty much any sport out there

2. Gmote - works great for controlling your computer from a distance, has alot of potential

3. Linda File Manager - Prefer it over astro because it allows you to download certain files from the internet

4. wheres my droid - great app if you misplace your phone alot and like to keep it on vibrate/silent for the most part, allows you to text your phone a predetermined phrase and it automatically turns on your volume and blasts the ringer for about a min.

5. apps organizer - One of my all time favs, allows you to categorize your apps and assign quick shortcuts to your home

6. movies - uses gps to find the closest theaters and show times among many other things

7. wordUP - easily the best free game i have found

Re: What are your top 5 apps?

Has anyone else played with the walkie talkie PTT lite? A friend and I downloaded it as a joke to see what it does and its actually cool! It basicly turns your phone into a push to talk, you hold down an on-screen button, say what you need to say, release, and it sends an email to your friend with an audio attachment. If your friend has the app running, it will play the message when recieved. Its free with the option to pay 4 bucks for the full version that dosnt have ads.

Handcent also allows you to enter text messages by speaking into the phone using voice recognition to convert what you say into text. Great feature if your trying to respond to text while in the car, etc.

It is not too bad. About the same as any google voice search. The bad part is that it puts whatever it thinks you said directly into a text and you have to delete the parts that are wrong. I like on the voice search how it gives you what it thinks you said, and gives you a chance to cancel the search.
