Hi guys new to the forum and new to android, should be getting my LG tomorrow . I was wondering what your top ten apps are for the LGo 2x. I did see some other threads for other phones but maybe because of the awsome power you would be using other apps for this one ?

Or after rooting what shoud be the first apps to install ?

Anyway thanks in advance for the advise..

Well if your going to be interested in installing custom roms Titanium Backup is a good app for backups restores etc.

As for the apps heres a list of my most used ones:
  • Androidify (fun)
  • Barcode Scanner
  • Chrome to Phone (if you use Chrome)
  • Dolphin browser mini
  • eBay
  • Facebook
  • Motion Fart (haha!)
  • Root explorer
  • SwitchPro widget (very useful)
  • X Construct
  • Wireless Tether
  • Where's my droid
  • XDA app
  • LauncherPro Plus

Thats my most used apps hope its useful!

For me:

Tasker
PowerAmp
Market Enabler (needs Root)
Titanium Backup (needs Root)
NewsRoom RSS reader
LauncherPro Plus
Beautiful Widgets

Loads more, but just to get you started In particular I recommend Tasker, its the most powerful app on Android bar none - don't let the learning curve put you off, once you get it its amazing (and replaces dozens of other apps on the Market).

There's no need to use Chrome - you could use it for Firefox with Fox2Phone. It uses the official extension, just makes it usable in Firefox.

Out of interest: Why are you recommending Dolphin Mini? The 2x has no problems with handling Dolphin Browser HD which I am currently using - is there a reason to switch?
