Hi 3lusive, I'm subbed to this now so I'll chime in with any help I can offer...
Any apps you recommend?
I'v currently downloaded Juicedefender, Chrome, Whatsapp (awesome), Tapatalk (can't find bittech), BetterBaterry, UK Jobs, Swiftkey X (good but screen too sensitive still) and Facebook.
I'm an Android noob still as I'v only just bought it this week, loving them though.
Bit-tech app. Not that I particularly recommend it.
I also gave up on Juicedefender in the end, I'm sure it made next to no difference and I leave the phone charging whilst at work anyway...
I am not a big mobile gamer, so I only have a few installed. Here are my favourite apps though:
Airborne Mouse Free
Android Assistant(18 features)
AndroZip File Manager
BatStat Battery Widget
Bloat Freezer - Root
DroidCam Wireless Webcam
Mr. Number Text, Call & Block
Now And Then - Date Calculator
Official eBay Android App
PocketCloud Remote RDP / VNC
Root Explorer (File Manager)
Stopwatch & Timer
I also use Swype keyboard. It take a little getting used to but once you are it makes typing on a touch screen child's-play.
Hopefully that list will give you some ideas.
Thanks shirty I'l check some of those out.
I'v tried swipe method but didn't like it for the first few mins. May give it another go now, although I'll have to disable swiftkey I think.
I'm still looking for one which will allow me to reduce the display's sensitivity to touch input?
I just got a xperia s from a blackberry bold.. texting now is a major pita but that is my only complaint. Incredible what I can do on it compared to what I've been used to.
Will look at swift key, tho it may just be a familiarization thing
xperia phones also have swype style entry, give that a bash, just trace out the word over the keyboard in one stroke, you might find that good, my missus loves that on her Arc S.
If not enabled by default click on the spanner on the keyboard and enable gesture input also let it put the space in, then you can just scribble words all day long, no accuracy required.
Trying swipe again now, it's actually pretty good. My thumbs are just too fat (and the display too sensitive) to type accurately on the One S with normal input (and in portrait mode). With swipe though, you can only use one hand to type with it seems
Gave swiping method a proper go tonight (called 'trace keyboard' on HTC phones). And I'm loving it now.
So far it's much better (for me with the one S) than having to touch type normally. Probably not as fast as on a button keyboard but then again I used to type in shorthand, whereas now I type the fullword because it predicts it.
Only issue I'v come across is the fact I sometimes have to input a new word into the dictionary, but as it builds I should have to do this less.
Separate names with a comma.
