I meant to say in the kast post. I found this static background on xda developers site. its nice how I can center the jpeg where I want, then when loaded as a static, it gives the screen a 3d look

I cannot paste the link, as I do not know where it is... :smileytongue: But the falling Android robots wallpaper is called "Shake Them All!" Maybe that could help...

Live wallpapers do use a little bit extra of your battery. That is because the phone has to keep up with the animation/moving parts in your wallpaper, therefore, using more of your battery to keep it going. I think it's worth it, though. There are definitely some very cool live wallpapers.

I agree WB, the live wallpapers are worth the battery drain. I had Thunderstorm Live and was so mesmerized by it that I had to uninstall it. It was making me dizzy when I looked at other things on my homescreen!

Yes, the live wallpapers are worth it. I will have to give "Thunderstorm Live" a peek/try. Rico, it's great to know that you have the falling robots wallpaper. You can configure the settings to make up to 50 robots instead of just the standard 10. You can also change the colors, etc. I wish it was a little cooler, but it still is acceptable for my taste.

Call History

CALL HISTORY (by TAN)

 

I needed an app that would allow me to filter incoming, outgoing and missed calls the way my trusty old HTC Tilt2 (TED1) used to do.  This app does just that.  It tells me when the call was made and tyhe duration. You can also click on the number and call the person back from within this app.

 

ADDED Feature:

Before installation, my android would always stay on the dialer screen after hanging up a call. After installation, I get a pop-up allowing me to set the on-call-end action to display either  the Call History or the Dialer Screen. I set it only once, an now at call end, my android navigates to the call history . COOL?

 

 

 

(Note: the app interfacing is smaller than shown here, this is magnified to give you a good view of what it contain)

I'll have to give that CallHistory app a try later on tonight. I haven't been able to find a solid call log on my Captivate, most of which just include messages and just a few calls. I would like to have a log specific for calling that is unique to itself.

 

I also plan on downloading a few other apps tonight such as games and maybe some more live wallpapers. Maybe there's even some good utility apps out there too that I have left undiscovered. I really like the flashlight one that I currently have. Doubletwist and CallHistory are at the top of my list. :smileywink:

Will do. I am mainly searching for live wallpapers. I have had my current one for almost a week now and am sort of getting "too used" to it. :smileytongue: I like that one that Ann154 posted in a screenshot of her Aria. That one is pretty cool.

I was referring to the middle one on the Aria. I find that pretty neat. The one on the Eris is pretty cool, too.

VTL.Launcher

 

  • This is an alternate Home Screen Launcher posted on XDA-Developers Forum.
  • Nice glassy dimensional look, docking scrolls left and right at the bottom of the screen instead of to the right (like Launcher Pro).
  • Easy to install / uninstall

 

I have tried it on the Streak, its ok, it's got all the  setting options including number of rows and columns per screen to display app shortcuts,  but I like my Laucher Pro!

 

 

 

From your android browser, go to this link (it will download)  http://vegantab.gojimi.com/download/Launcher_1_5.apk .

I downloaded "Nexus Revamped" for my Captivate and it is now my new live wallpaper. Much like the original pre-installed one, but this one is completely customizable and has a cleaner look. That's one nice wallpaper. :smileywink:

Cant wait to see what that screen looks like. I still only have just one or two installed live wallpapers. Nexus Revamp sounds interesting. Im logging into the market now to also see Speedtest updates. I wonder if theres any feature updates in addition to UI?

  • "Select All' button batch delete/cleanup old or unwanted emails (no more manually deleting one by one)

This resolved mass the mass cleanup of hundreds of emails sitting in other folders that woudn't sync after i've cleared them out on the client side. Now, my phone "and" the client side folders are manageable from my android.

TEXT WIDGET (by Tampiss)

 

            android3.png

Text Labeling Widget (not a text messaging app)

This is a basic widget for labeling your home screen(s) to give them a custom title. 

You can also create shortcuts out of the labels such as make a "Facebook" label and assign a click event to it that takes you to Facebook.

 

Home Screen Custom Titles

I am using it to give each of my five home screens a title that sum up what the related set of widgets and shortcuts are on each page: i.e. "Phone and Messaging", "Office and Calendars", "Games", "Online Connections" displaying set of browser link icons, radio streaming, and the market connection, and finally "Android Settings"

 

Create Custom Interactve Shortcuts

This is an Android Market screenshot where someone using the text widget to creat distinct labels formating the fonts and background, then setting the click event that navigates the screen to each respective location or other phone function.
