    One of my favorites is the Key Ring app. Keeps all your store cards on your phone and has weekly sales flyers there as well. Was recently updated and its better than before.

    One of the most useful ones I've got is our groceries. It's shared between the wife and I so we can both add or delete items needed. Run multiple lists for everything from Costco to Home Depot. And it's free.99

    :notsure:
    Just pull the icon for messages to your desktop if it's not already there. Or you can get them through the notification bar. You just pull it down and click the message.

    The UI didn't bother me, the shitty battery, and fact that nothing worked as well as the iPhone solidified my choice. I have the 4S, completely happy with it right now. Curious to see what comes out this fall. It hurts android that the OS is made to work on shit hardware, and good hardware, where the iPhone is the only thing running iOS, and its apples only and best phone ya know? Apple doesn't have to worry about making it work on free phones that you would give to your kids and stuff....

    I saw that Kies Air was already on my phone. According to the Play Store, it's not a tethering app. It's an app to share data between your phone and your PC (e.g. transfer pictures over wifi instead of hooking up the phone to the computer).

    To the other Android users complaining of bad battery life. Go to Google Maps > Settings > Location Settings > Location Reporting - Do not update your location. Somehow recently this wasn't checked on mine, and made a noticeable impact on battery life.

    I upgraded to iOS 7 beta1 last week and it is awesome. They just updated to beta2 the other day which fixed a few minor glitches. Overall the new OS is GREAT and very easy to install. Just follow these instructions.
