How do you like the Elixir App that you've installed and briefly commented on a few months ago ( See Message #62 )?  Does this app track data usage per app such as, say, if i used "Twitter" (which do do not) for a certain period, would Elixir track the amount of data used when this app is activated?  Or is this mainly a resource to track battery usage ?

Sorry, I never did get a chance to test it out. Smiley Sad The person who brought it up at the "other" home might still be using it, but I would need to search over there for posts mentioning it.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have: POWERAMP (purchased)

[ Edited ]

Ok, I took the plunge and purchased the full version of PowerAmp. Its the same full options you get in the 14-day trial version, just an unlock key. It does enhance the sound from my Streak, especially when its connected to computer/stereo speakers or in the aux input in the car... I just got tired of reloading and rescanning album art every 2weeks... Especially when mp3 counts in upwards of 300+ Any other equalizer app anyone recommends?

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Rico, is this a nice music app? I currently have the MP3 Music Download app on my phone that syncs my downloaded music to my phone's integrated Music Player. I like this app because it's simple to use and all of the music is free.

Does this app - PowerAmp - have any advantages over the other, would you say?

Hey WB, I love MP3 Downloader too! Really meat! Actually found "Tonight Tonight" by Hot Chelle Ray, new somg. Hey if you got it where your music player is already synced, stick with what you are using. I just like tje interface on this app. But u should dowload the trial copy and see if it adds additional layers for you? Smiley Tongue

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Okay. I'll test it out and see if I'm interested in buying the paid version.

Buddy, tell me more how you got the Mp3 Music Downloader to sync with yoir stock music layer? I like a setting like that! One thing I do like about PowerAmp is that its an amplifier/equelizer type app. Tons of settings and you can create ringtones from within the app but I like Ringdroid for making ringtones and syste notification sounnds. I lt helps enrich the sound . Adds more crisp, treb/bass to the output.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

With the MP3 Music Download application open, I think I remember going to some setting in the Settings that enabled new songs to sync with my phone's stock Music Player. It wasn't very easy, if I remember correctly, but at least I was able to do it. Smiley Happy

Heard of but have not used (a paid application) My Backup Pro


Free app combination
Backup of SMS > sms backup & restore - saves to sd card
There are others that send sms to an email address.
If you want mms messages to be backed up, you will have to go with a paid application.

Estrongs or Astro to backup your applications. Data and settings for the applications won't be saved (Backup Pro is supposed to do this)

Unsure about the call log if there is an individual application. I am sure that there is one out there. Lookout (antivirus app) will backup the call log and is what I currently use.

Anything else you want to backup that hasn't been mentioned?


 

Anndroid154! Thank you for remembering this posting! Ive added tags to it this time round.  I was searching by tag and just couldnt locate anything.... and here it was on page 1!    I am royally embarassed!!!

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have: RINGDROID RIngtone Maker

[ Edited ]

I've found the best ringtone app for the android device is none other than:

 

R I N G D R O I D

 

Create your own custom ringtones from mp3s you have saved on your android device. You can also create custom Notification Alerts and assign these to events such as New Message, New Email  and other system alerts performed on your android.

 

 

 

 

I've created several "NIFTY" ringtones using the exact portion of the song I wanted by

    1. Starting the application

    2. Load the mp3 from my library

    3. drag the start and end gray sliders to the specific location in the song.

    4. Preview and adjust the gray sliders until the prefered clip is highlighted

    5. Save (I like saving my custom ringtones with the rt_ prefix ie. rt_Calling All Angels)

         This way, it helps group all of my custom ringtones together when viewing in file explorer.

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

Android Market Rating:

Number of Downloads to-date and 5 Star Overall Rating

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

I think Ringdroid is something that would be helpful to me. I have songs that have my favorite parts in them, but I can never find a ringtone to have exactly that specific part. This would probably work very well.

I'll add this to my download list, as well as Elixir or whatever the name of that other cool app was.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

+1 on the Ringdroid. Although I am sure I recommended it before here "somewhere".

I don't use it very much myself because I have all the custom ringtones I want already and HTC has a ringtone trimmer built in to their phones.

The one thing I do like about the application is it creates the same folder structure on the SD card that the android system defaults to looking for when loading the ringtones.
