Thought i would post a thread on this as most people probably own a phone or iPod that uses 'apps'.

I own a HTC Hero which runs Android by google. These are.my top/reccommended apps;

1. Gmote.

Install it on the phone then install a small program on your computer. I can now use ny phone to control my laptop. It's best uses include a 'clicker' for PowerPoint presentations, controlling music & movies. I can also wirelessly control my mouse (using the touch screen on the phone) which lets me do pretty much everything (Browse files, talk to people on MSN, open the internet, post this thread and more).

2. Beeb Player

Basically an Iplayer app on the phone. Sucks the **** outta the battery but is pretty decent quality and useful in lectures :D

3. Opera Mini

Don't like Opera on my computer but I use it to browse the web on my mobile phone. A lot better then the original browser and also quicker.

4. Soccer Livescores

All games, all goals, all the action, one app ;)

5. MeeboIM

Used for MSN & Facebook chat. Plenty of applications out there for this and it's probably whatever you go for first would be your favourite, this was mine.

Anyone got any other reccommendations? for Iphone, Android or otherwise?

I forgot to add;

Peep - the twitter app that came with the phone.

Facebook - the Facebook app, but it needs a lot of work - I tend to use the m.facebook.com.

The only thing I don't like about my phone?

I can't play Paper Toss :(
Yes!

Paper Toss version was released for Android. Anyway, few apps/games recently that I am enjoying...

Abduction - fun game, think it's on Iphone also. Gets pretty tiresome after a while though.

Blow Up - Cool game where you plant bombs to blow up a building, have to get all the parts of the building to fall beneeath a certain height to win.

Falling Ball - simple game where you tilt the phone to make the man move and avoid the balls. Not got over 1 min yet :(

Downloaded a few games today including Angry Birds, Doodle Jump and PoolStar.

Would really reccomend PoolStar as the graphics are superb. Angry birds is also fun but I get easily frustrated XD. Where as Doodle Jump is just to repetitive.
