  • Crossroads ESV Bible app for Android 05.01.11

    Since getting my Motorola Droid last year, I’ve found many great apps (all free – save one) and some not so great ones too. One of the very first apps I installed was LifeChurch.tv’s Bible app You Version which is still amazing with it’s easy navigation, numerous translations and integrated reading plans, etc. I highly […]

  • Froyo no-no 11.08.10

    So now that I’ve had a chance to play with the Froyo Update on my Motorola Droid, I have a few comments. First, I am happy to report that I was among the first to get the official update for the Droid phone. Many people, like me, have patiently waiting for the official OTA upgrade […]

  • Enjoying my FroYo 11.08.10

    I just got the notification that my phone (the original Droid by Motorola) is ready for the Android 2.2 upgrade. This is something I’ve been looking forward to for some time as the added features should make my user experience that much better. While I’m upgrading my Droid phone, here’s some highlights of what I’m […]

  • Your attempts have failed 14.04.10

    Since getting my Droid phone, I’ve been using Google Voice for my voicemail messages. Its great, I get to check messages online or on the phone, plus I get transcripts of my messages and I can listen in what ever order I like. Another feature of Google Voice is custom messages. Basically, I can have […]

  • Droid 2.1 03.04.10

    I just installed (over the air) the latest OS for my Motorola Droid phone and so far it seems fine. That is, I haven’t done anything except replace my gallery widget and added the Google weather/news widget (which may replace my Weatherbug app. With Android 2.1, Motorola Droid users will get multitouch pinch-to-zoom capabilities (using […]

  • More on Google Voice 18.02.10

    Dispite the funny transcriptions you get with Google Voice, I still think its worth getting. If you do sign up, there are a couple of things to consider. First, get a Google Number. There’s more features this way and you can always start giving it out as your number or keep it secret for special […]

  • Talk dirty to me 17.02.10

    One of the ways that I made my Motorola Droid phone work for me is signing up for a Google Voice number and using that as my voice mail service. So when you call my cell number and leave a message, that message is actually saved to my Google Voice number which offers online retrieval […]

  • Keeping up with…everyone 12.01.10

    One of the features of the Motorola Droid (and other Google phones I guess) is that you can use your Gmail contacts as your phone contacts. I talked about importing my old phone contacts before but one of the results was a plethora of duplicate contacts and overlapping contacts. For instance, I usually had one […]

  • Picture Pages 21.12.09

    One of the things I like about my new Droid phone is how well it integrates my Google account and all its features. One thing it does is use my Gmail contacts as my phone contacts (including email, birthdays, addresses, etc.) One of the features which it uses on the phone that I didn’t use […]

  • DROID 16.11.09

    I’ll try to avoid the usual puns regarding the name but I thought I’d take a moment to tell you about my new phone. This won’t be an exhaustive review because quite frankly, I haven’t played with it enough to tell you all the details. But I will tell you this, I like it. It’s […]
