Top 25 Apps for Android 2.1 (Eclair) Thread Launched
Following the success of similar threads for the Windows Mobile platform, XDA member jerry43812 has initiated a thread designed to collect the most valuable and original Android 2.1 applications available to the XDA community.
In the thread, Eclair users are encouraged to share the apps that they don’t think they could live without. What jerry43812 is trying to do differently is to focus on the less heard-of submissions to the Market, so that they can get more recognition for their ingenuity. For example, we all know how innovative something like Google Goggles is but some of us may have missed the extremely useful Titanium Backup.
Both paid and free apps and games are being considered in the thread, with votes being recounted regularly as new posters give their input. The aim of the thread is to end up with an evolving list of the top 25 best apps for Android 2.1.
You vote for your favourites in the collection thread.
Thanks for the tip, jerry43812!

Google Drive for Work, Google Apps for Work (paid edition), Education and Government customers will not be affected by these changes and can continue using...
One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
