What I’m Doing Tonight

Here’s a video to give you a hint.

After waiting a long time for a decent smartphone to be offered in our area, I picked up a HTC Desire Android phone today from US Cellular. It’s essentially the same as the Google Nexus One, except is is a CDMA phone offered by regional carriers. I’ve been playing with it all evening, installing apps and learning how it works. Overall, I’m happy with it.  It came with Android 2.1 on it, but I’m already looking forward to the 2.2 update so I can install apps to the SD card.  It’s fast, it’s sleek, and the screen is incredible. I’m excited to see how I can integrate it into my workflow for church. Already, I’m looking forward to not having to carry my iPod and my phone everywhere I go.

Here’s a list of the apps I’ve installed so far.

  • Bible app from Lifechurch
  • Evernote
  • Dropbox
  • Pandora
  • 1Password
  • Google Voice
  • Advanced Task Killer
  • Barcode Scanner
  • Amazon MP3
  • Dolphin Browser HD
  • Google Goggles
  • Amazon Kindle
  • Mint
  • Photoshop Express
  • RunKeeper
  • Remember the Milk
  • ScoreCenter
  • Seesmic
  • Shazam
  • WordPress

What did I miss? Looking forward to trying it out over the next few weeks.

    Do you think they'd let me upgrade my phone? Maybe with a "repair" issue or something involved?
