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.

Definitely get the Amazon App store as it gives you a free app per day. Beware, however, that if you reset your phone, apps that you download for free cannot be redownloaded for free later (after they've gone back to paid). I tried redownloading an app and ended up paying for it.


Huh? You're doing something wrong, I've never had an issue redownloading a promo app after the sale or giveaway is over. Make sure you install it from the "My Apps" part of the app store instead of searching for it.
