Re: Must have apps

I used to like Slacker Radio but got bored of it. I do not know who likes House, Dubstep, Depp house & Trance music but i have downloaded Digitally Imported on my Xperia S. Its all the songs you do not hear on the Radio plus more. Its a free app but you can also pay & use all the features. You are able to control the speed & how much data it can take on Mobile (3G/4G/LTE) & WiFi as well.

This is by far my favorite music app on Android, Apple & Blackberry.

Re: Must have apps

For a lost or stolen phone, this app is a must: AndroidLost Check it our, you will be amazed at what it can do, and free, too!


Here is just some of the things it can do from the web site:


- enable wifi, gps, bluetooth, or sound

- fins exact location your phone is in case someone stole it

- silently takes a picture from your front or rear camera

- if someone puts a new sim card in, it will report you the number

- you can wipe the phone contents remotely so the thief cannot view your personal photos/texts

- so much more!

Has anyone ever tried Zedge?


They have the best wallpapers you can imagine. I probably change my wallpaper every week or so.

Hello Choprafamily

Zedge is the best for ringtones, Live wallpapers & other things as well. I would highly recommend that app!

If you own a phone with a flashlight, I highly recommend this one: Disco Light LED Flashlight
