Video, Movie and TV Apps on the Droid Update

As stated in my first and second blogiversary posts, the most popular post on my blog has been Video, Movie and TV Apps on the Droid, a collection of applications to watch assorted tv shows and movies on the Android based phones. It was a request from the comments of one of my other posts because VCast wasn’t available for the Droid at that time, but that has since changed. After a year and a half, it’s time to update the list.

The New Android Marketplace

This week, Google had their latest round of Android announcements this week and coming out of it came two major products. The first was Google’s Android OS 3.0 for tablets, code named Honeycomb. The second is Android’s new web based market to compliment its phone based market, but does the new market bring on par with Apple’s iTunes store?

Games for the Droid

Everyone carries their cellphones wherever they go and with the high resolution on the screens of the Motorola Droid, Droid 2, Droid X and other Android phones make for a potential gaming platform to rival the Nintendo DS, Sony PSP and other handheld gaming platforms. When there’s downtime, it’s the perfect time to reach for your phone and play a game, and these are some of the best available for the Droid phones.

Must Have Apps For the Droid Pro

The latest Motorola Droid to join the Android lineup is the Droid Pro. The Blackberry like design with the physical keyboard mixed with the multi-touch 3.1″ screen like the other Droid phones have. And just like the other Droid phones, the Droid Pro needs apps to truly expand the uses of the phone. These are some of the most useful apps to be used with the new phone.

One Click Rooting, Screenshots and Free Wifi Tethering for the Droid

I previously wrote about how to root the Droid, but since then, there have been updates to the Android operating system, which would require you to install updates, which may have caused the Droid to be unrooted or simply a new phone which was not rooted back then. Since that time, it has become a very simple, one click process to root the phone and add features not normally part of the Android OS.

Social Media Apps for the Droid

I previously went over the major Twitter clients for the Droid, Droid X and Droid 2. Of course there are other major social media outlets available, so it only makes sense that it should be accessible. The following are some of the major social media apps.

Book and Reading Apps for the Droid

When traveling with your Droid, Droid 2 or Droid X, sometimes it’s good to have something to read with you. When are in a position where you can’t actually carry a book, it’s good to have an app that will let you keep up with your reading without the bound paper in your hand.

Anime Apps for the Droid

Growing up, there were a few cartoons that were brought over from Japan and rebranded for American kids. We ate up Starblazers, Battle of the Planets and Voltron, unaware of its true origins overseas. With time, Japanese animation grew into its own and Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and their ilk grabbed the hearts and minds of a new generation of children, as well as their older counterparts who watched more adult oriented anime. Now, watching them isn’t limited just to the television, but to the Droid, Droid 2 and Droid X as well.
