    I'm also loving 2.1, I don't think I'm going to upgrade my phone's OS again, what with the end of my contract approaching now. I downloaded the newest version of ADW Launcher yesterday and my phone has virtually no slowdown now, it's AMAZING!

    Have you got the update before that.. the one you get online... ?
    Cuz if you havent updated it at all.. you wont be able to skip it and get the new 2.1.

    The actual update 2.1 can take a while.. make sure your in a place where you wont lose 3g or wifi signal, whatever your using. It can appear to be freezing at times.. your phone will "turn on and off" .. reports of it taking 30 mins etc with some people. so be patient
    Thanks, finally got it all downloaded and stuff (: much better then 1.5!

    I've recently moved from iPhone 3GS to Desire, and I LOVE it but I'm not particularly lovin' the apps situation. Apple's App Store just seems easier and, well, nicer. Can anyone recommend me some good ones? I've got Advanced Task Killer and that's about, really. Gimme a top ten? +rep, for what it's worth, haha!

    There's absolutely loads of apps to recommend, just when your watching some TV go throug the list and see what catches your eye really, but so far I've got

    App Organiser -> erm organise your apps for your front page.
    Shop Shavvy / barcode scanner which is effectively like red laser, barcode scanner for the android.
    mp3 download -> Hear a song, like it and download it.
    Aloqa find slike th nearest restruant/atm etc for you
    discount calculator - um yehh you get it.
    Facebook
    last.fm scrobble music to your last fm player.
    msn talk for msn
    london city for tube map for london
    tv guide for tv guide
    voice search same as apple voice control thing.
    twitter - twitter.

    that's pertty much it
    Games on the other hand I have traffic rush, which is like the one that ipod has there a crossroads and you have to make sure cars cross safely etc.
    spot the difference amazing time burner.
    alchemy which is like a sciency game but doesn't have much science involved for example you drag two elements together to make something else.

    umm that's all I have so far, hope that helps. So yeh if your bored google around and see what people reccomend etc.

    Don't use a task manager!

    Also, at this stage, pretty much anything you had for your iPhone can be found in the Android Market.

    I've used Cronos Froyo for a while now and tbh, I rate it over anything else. Cyanogen haven't done a full Froyo release yet and I'm not to keen on the Team Villain devs tbh.

    I'll be upgrading to 1.1 when it's out.

    Yeah, well, the app store is exclusive to the iphone/touch, whereas the Android Market caters to all Android phones, and there are major power discrepancies between the android handsets available.

    theoreetically but almost every app has reports of people complaining it doesnt work on their phone.

    although its hard to know if its just their specific phone for whatever reason or a problem with the model in general.
