smartphones and Apps

all right i retired my rotary,shrugged of the PRC-25 for the last time,and went out and bought a smartphone,a Droid Bionic.It's a great phone so far,couple pots of coffee later and i had managed to turn it on and get my email to work,kidding.What i was wondering from you guys is what Apps,free or not have you guys found most useful and glitch free? maybe a top ten list would be a good comparison,mine so far;

1.Pandora
2.Google Earth
3.Google maps
4.Google streets
5.mapquest

that's it so far i'm looking for transportation,gun related,weather,road conditions,restraunts,anything but shopping/jewelry/girl shit

two lucky

coast to coast.. free.. not just UFO, cutting edge stuff one step away from tin foil..
the Hill.. free.. conservative news letter "think" Drudge report is free to, not sure..

Oh .. just forgot "the View".. make up, hair styles, shoes..

Ha ha.. got rid of the prick huh..

A "fill in" for those of you who are wondering what lucky meant with the PRC- 25 that's a mil spec number for a back pack carried small unit communication radio/phone.. called ..the prick.

I have no idea,

I sit in front of a computer all day every day, the last thing I need is a fucking phone that can access the internet...LOL My kids and friends have them and some of the "app's" are pretty cool but for me it ain't worth the cost, that's ammo money baby!

phone apps RE lucky.

I'm not a smartphone user yet but soon i will be.there is a rangefinder app I've heard of,an app to make your phone work as a radar gun,and a buddy of mine is(unsure if its nationwide or not)making a shooting range finder app that includes peoples input about the ranges and info on public or private cleanliness etc.ill get ahold of him and post info on completion eta and the app name. my wife is an i phone junkie,says she's surprised she hasn't found an app for gunshot yet...maybe in the future?

It is a smart phone, it is probably censoring your "ugly mug"...
