  • Google Voice is a service that is so useful I consider it one of the top benefits of Android itself, especially since Apple rejected the Google Voice app for the iPhone. It gives you a phone number that can ring to multiple places or devices and it allows you to access all of your voicemail and text messages over the Web. The Android app integrates even deeper. It can make outgoing calls look like they're coming from your Google Voice number so that you can keep your real mobile number private.

      all 70,000+ apps are in the android market. There are actually more than that but I wouldn't recommend installing apps that are not on the market since they could be malicious.

    Item 14. Gist .. could have done a better job removing those email addresses. Those are still pretty visible if you ask me.

  • One important app is missing

    I do not see B-Folders. I use it every day on my phone and my computers and it is a real life-saver. Please consider adding it.
