I guess, I won't support this thread anymore. Our device is not good anymore, and our Wildfire's can't use all new apps because of very slow Arm v6 processor and GPU lack. But anyway, if you have any good ideas - write it here.

I hope, that this thread was useful for everyone. Maybe I'll back, but I guess, it will happen only when I will buy new phone, so I won't back coming soon. Thanks for everything.


Hi. I had very much problems with apps. I didn't know which is better and which is really usable. So I will try to help you with apps - this is list of the best apps:
For all users

Everything for browsing:
Browsers:
1. Opera Mini: The fastest browser for Android, but it doesn't support flash, JavaScript and etc.
2. Skyfire: an alternative browser with flash support, but quite slow.
3. Opera Mobile: fastest browser if you using Wi-Fi. Supports flash and JavaScript.
4. Dolphin BrowserŽ HD: Quite fast browser, but slower than browsers from Opera. But this browser is very customizable has very much Add-ons, themes and etc.
5. Dolphin BrowserŽ Mini: Something between Opera Mini and Dolphin browser HD. This browser is slower than Opera Mini, but faster than Dolphin HD. Also it is more customizable than Opera Mini, but not as customizable as Dolphin HD.
Social:
1. Facebook: If you using Facebook you must have it.
2. Tapatalk: For going to forums like this.
3. Skype: I think you know what is it. It's just mobile version...
4. Google+: App for Google+ users.
5. K-9 Mail: The best email client for Android.
6. TweetCaster for Twitter: The best Twitter app. Simple. Fast. Many features.
7. WhatsApp Messenger: With this app you can chat with your freinds for free (requires internet). Also there is a group chat.
Other apps for better browsing experience:
1. FeedR: An RSS reader that works as both an app and a widget.
2. 3G watchdog: This app shows your data usage. This app is the best, because it doesn't include Wi-Fi data and shows notification.


Customizing:
Launchers:
1. Go Launcher EX: I think it's the best Launcher. Many functions (I think the best is folders in app drawer, or hiding apps in app drawer), many themes. But it eats more RAM than other launchers.
2. Launcher Pro: This launcher is very fast, but not as customizable as Go Launcher. But if you want the best performance you shuold this launcher.
Homescreen:
1. Fancy widgets: The best free app for widgets (like htc style clock and etc.).
2. Beatiful Widgets: The best of the best widgets app (But this app costs).
3. PicSpeed HD Wallpapers: This app has very much high quality wallpapers.


Multimedia:
Music:
1. MixZing Media Player: If you don't like stock music player or just need more functions like equalizer and etc.
2. doubleTwist Player: One of the best (or maybe the best ) music player for Android.
3. MX Video Player: Really good video player. Customizable, nice and fast. P.s. you must download Arm v6 codec to use this player.
4. SoundHound: If you listening radio or just music from somewhere and you don't know name of the song - just open this app and it will show song that you're listening name. This app is better than Shazam if you are listening Electro, trance or something like this.
5. Shazam: Something like SoundHound, but it is better if you are listening rock, rap, pop and other non-electronic music.
6. TuneIn Radio: The best Internet radio app. If it works in Lithuania it must work everywhere .
Photos and videos:
1. Camera Zoom FX: Camera app which has very much effects and functions.
2. Vignette: One more camera app, which also has many effects and features.
3. PicSay - Photo Editor: I think it is the best photo editor for Android Phone.
4. QuickPic: This is video and photo gallery. It has more functions and it's faster than stock gallery.
5. VidTrim - Video Trimmer: With this app you can trim your videos.
6. SyncMyPix: A nice little photo syncing app for contacts; basically it imports your friends Facebook photo's into your contacts.
YouTube:
1. TubeMate YouTube Downloader: With this application you can downlaod videos from YouTube.
2. Listube: With this app you can play music from youtube in backround. For example: You can listen music from youtube while you're browsing. P.S. This app also playing video, but you can't watch video in fullscreen.
Reading:
1. Aldiko Book Reader: With this app you can read books and etc. This app supports .ePub files (with these files your reading will be much more comfortable)
2. IDEAL ePub Creator: With this app you can convert PDF, DOC, DOCX files to ePub.
3. Documents To Go: View, read and edit all .doc,. docx,. xls,. xlsx,. ppt,. pptx and other files.


SMS:
1. Go SMS Pro: Really good sms app, with many functions like password on sms, themes and etc.
2. SMS Backup & Restore: Simple application for backuping and restoring your sms.
3. SMS Popup: This app provides a convenient popup dialog when a message is received that allows you to quickly read and reply to messages..

1. Safe notes: You can write notes with this app. Why it's safe? Because you can put password on your notes.
2. Hide it pro: You can hide videos and pictures with this app.
3. Call Blocker: Sometimes we need to block calls or SMS from someone. So, this app will help you to do it (It works not in all countries (countries list in this app description - in market))
4. Fake-Call Me: With this app you can make fake call, so you can can get out of awkward situations :P.
5. avast! Mobile Security: One of the best (or maybe the best) antivirus app for Android. Why? Because it has a lot of features, blocks many viruses and it is faster than others. There are many viruses for Android, so if you are downloading apps not only from Google Play - you should install this antivirus.
6. Perfect App Protector - FREE: App that will let you set password on other apps.

Entertainment:
1. Rage Reader: I think you know what is Trollface, Rage, forever alone or other memes. With this app you can find many comics with these memes. Comics gets updates every minute .
2. TrollCamera: One more funny app for memes lovers. Take foto and add any meme.
3. RoidRage Rage Maker: With this application you can make your own meme comics.

Thanks mate really useful.

I would like to add 2 facebook apps that actually work. (smoothly)

1- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1200207 (real deal)

2-Friendcaster pro.

Oh, I almost forgot Brits! "Rainwatch" is the Uber weather app for us. It basically is a local cloud map. Which is what matters here

Thanks, is a great list of apps.

One thing I would ask, is can apps be rated for how speedy or laggy they are on the wildfire.

For example GO SMS is lovely, particularly with its flip screens but I am using Pansi SMS and it is much faster, and has a less cramped text box.

A few apps the I really love that worked really well on the wildfire are :

Beyond podcast
Gtasks
Flext9 voice recognition software, there was the occasional glitch on WiFi, one time out of 10 that dictation would fail, fine on 3G . rocksolid since rooted.
