You have struck a favorite subject of mine. You don't say which Galaxy model you have, mine is the Galaxy II Fascinate that I have been using since the day it came out and which is on Verizon.
It has it's draw backs, but once you figure out how to get around them, it is a great phone. I still cannot justify replacing it....... BUT that Samsung Note 3 sure is tempting me.....
My single most favorite app which I only recently came across is Battery Doctor. That app is the single most efficient app for Android phones I have come across. What it does is let you kill all of the background apps that are hogging your battery power.
My phone's battery life is typically about 5-8 hours depending on whether I am talking or not. Seriously, standby time w/o talking it is good for about 8 hours. With Battery Doctor it will now go 2 days and me still be able to make/take a few phone calls.
The secret to using it is to envoke the Task Killer button each time you are through with the phone and want to put it to sleep/standby.
Now, what other apps? I have a whole slew of good ones that I use all the time depends on what area you want to delve into.
is great if you want to know who just called and you missed them.
is tops on my list of useful intergrating apps. I keep my life stored in Evernote and it follows me around everywhere. Phone to desktop to laptop, no matter, enter info once and it syncs to the Evernote cloud.
Email apps for Yahoo and Gmail (comes with phone)
, there are 11 apps on my phone, ask if you want to know which ones.
- In Case of Emergency. This one is so the LEO or EMT can look at your phone and find out if you have medical needs and who to call and alert to your situation.
- Kelly Blue Book
to my banks, very neat since they have added the Scan & Deposit check feature. Never used it yet, no one sends me checks anymore
will sync your apps to the playstore
- I like this one because when I take a picture, it is automatically uploaded to my Photobucket web account.
That is most of the great ones.
