PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, today I finally joined the ranks of millions and millions of Android users, meaning I now have access to three of the major mobile platforms (Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7). I am, however, a complete Android noob, and I'm suspecting there will be many more Android noobs in the years to come - among OSNews readers as well. Hence, I figured this might be as good a time as any for an OSNews Asks item: Android all the things! Okay, technically that's not a question, but these are: what are the best Android applications? The most useful widgets? The most beautiful themes? Should you root your Android device? Is there any reason to add the Amazon App Store? Are there any tweaks to improve the Android experience? And so on.

I've bought my first Android phone a few months ago. It's a Samsung Galaxy S II. I absolutely love it. I like the fact that I can access freely all my files in the device. A nice feature is the ability to pull down the status bar (at the top of the screen) which gives quick access to a manager that helps you enable/disable services like sound, wi-fi, bluetooth, gps. The only issue I had was with Kies which prevents you from connecting your device to a Linux box. The trick is to enable debugging USB, then pull down the status bar and connect as USB storage. I also killed Kies, just to be sure.
