I got a Smart Phone, now what?

#120240 2 years, 8 months ago
So I finally got a smart phone yesterday, a Droid Bionic. I'm not really feeling smarter yet, but I did have fun playing with ring tones and apps until all hours last night. I managed to figure out how to download Google Goggles, and scanned a QR code to get Vibe Vault, so I can listen to archive.org, and I've got my Kindle hooked up, but not much else. BTW, scanning that QR code may have been the coolest technological thing I've ever seen; talk about Star Trek-y!!

So I'm looking for any and all suggestions on cool apps, functions not to be missed and definitely lessons learned the hard way.
Any words of wisdom for me as I move into the 21st century?!

Ustream app of course!! Its free

Pandora or Wolfgangs vault. I dont have many apps on my phone. But I'd recommend the GD Radio app also.

Without love in a dream, it will never come true.

Thanks for the tips! I got ustream now i just need a show to stream. Wow this small though. But this is a lot more fun than reading People while I get my hair cut.

You can also use it to listen to streams! Just plug your phone into a pair of speakers and you got yourself some nice sound!

My cable tv app (optimum) is really good. Lets me watch tv on my ipod touch plus see what's on tv. Also lets you record to a dvr (if I had one). Probably great for a sportsfan.

And solitaire, what can be more cutting edge?
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

The good ones have all been mentioned but there is also
Tonepad -- more fun than twiddling your thumbs.
NPR News and Music apps
AroundMe - tells you all the stuff near wherever you are at the time. Great for traveling to a strange place.
Flashlight App is useful
