drjekyll: is swype a 'paid app'.. i can't find it when i go looking..


Its still in beta mode and not in the market. check out http://beta.swype.com/ but I think beta is closed. There are alternatives that do a similar thing just not as good, like slideIt.

TeMorituri:

Whats the best avi player ap please? I have many movies I wanna watch..taking one or two with me when i am out might be an idea

I have Google nav/ the maps ap updated but how do i make it speak to tell me directions ( like.."take the next left" and die horribly in the congestion that is aucklands spaghetti junction ) It shows me the route but it aint speaking.

Suggestions where i have gone wrong ?

Also wanting to secure my apps and contacts on the sim card IF the thing gets lost or stolen..what aps do you guys use to lock the damn thing too??



Try Rockplayer for .avi.

For turn by turn have a look for Maps Brut, its a hacked maps app and it works fine.

I think this is the latest Maps (Brut) available. Works well for the price!

Edited with the right link!

kiwitrc: Trillion beta up for grabs http://www.trillian.im/learn/tour-android.html


Cheers for the heads up. Just installed it. Looks promising! Finally an app that has been developed for Android from the ground up, and not some cheap port from iPhone and/or Symbian :)

Have a look at systempanel app. http://www.androlib.com/android.application.nextapp-systempanel-iFtq.aspx

In a nutshell SystemPanel Lite integrates a task manager, system monitor, and detailed device information.

Hi ALL
New to this but have a HTC Desire(which is probably the best phone I've owned) but seem to have alot of duplicate contacts. Not sure whether I should dump the exchange sync(outlook) and go to google.
If so whats the best way to get rid of all your duplicates as I cant seem to seperate google contacts from exchange ones on the phone.

People->Menu->View  Tick only what you want to see (Sim, Exchange, Google).  The other contacts are still there but won't show up in your contacts app (people)
