You are welcome anytime and I mean that.

Try the app called Catch, I really dig it. Especially with the widget because you can do a note or picture very quickly.

Calendar Pad's week view widget is excellent. You get both the week's agenda as well as a sweet calendar in the corner. Plus it scales well so you can make it any size.

Samsung Galaxy S here (the one with Avatar loaded in it).

Highly recommend the free endomondo and parkdroid. Tracks your runs and never lose your parked car ever again.

And, of course, Angry Birds.

Google Translate - live conversation translation

Thanks for the tips on some good apps.

My next month will be wasted trying to figure this damn thing out.

I am such a techno idiot

I just found out about and started playing with Google Translate for Android. It will perform live, voice translations for some languages and written translations from spoken words in more languages.

More about it here: http://techcrunch.com/2011/01/12/android-translations/

Free.

Go to the Android Market and look for Google Translate.

The voice is a bit computer-y but it was pretty good at understanding my speech.

Can't say how it'll do with an Alabama accent ;-).

Works perfectly, I held a lengthy conversation in spanish and it never missed a beat. These are amazing times.

I'm guessin the translator needs to be connected to the internet to work?
Probably wont help much while I travel overseas, but may be handy to practice my russian with while here

Thanks for the tip

Doug

Evernote

GoMarks, useful if you use Google Bookmarks.

Both work well for keeping track of stuff found online.

Craftycoders Dual Sport Maps ap is fantastic! It is the most expensive APP I have paid for by a mile but worth every penny.

It allows you do download about any map, any where and use it to replace your GPS with your Droid. Fantastic!

I get nothing for this and I am not associated with the company but it is an app for riders by a rider and I am digging it the more I use it.

Check it out!

I have been playing about 5 games of Word Feud at a time... I am hooked.

I am enjoying Fuel Log for tracking expenses and mileage for the bikes and cars, works great.

Armoured Strike, fun game...

OI Cound down. A great timer app for everything to counting down to Dakar (19 days) to timing the perfect egg or counting down to your next trip. I use it a lot.

Don't know if it's 205, but Trials Extreme 2 is awesome.

Thee seems to be an ongoing problem with the Marketplace. Plenty of people are not seeing their apps, even the paid ones. I just got a new phone and while they show up on the website, they won't show up on my phone. Apparently this has been going on for a few months.

NavFree. Offline routable maps for free - for when there is no cellphone coverage. Not tried it in anger but it looks very nice.
