    For our anniversary, my wife got us new phones. Mine is a HTC Evo 4g, and I am blown away by this thing. However, browsing CU and other forums is a royal pain in the butt, pinching and sliding around. Anyone know of any good Android apps that help these issues, a browser that works better for forums, or some tricks and tips to make the experience easier?

    I'll talk with SR and get back with you, there's is an android app that our software is now compatible with that makes it easier.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    I'm doing pretty good on battery, turned down the screen brightness, turned off the GPS, don't actually have 4G service out here to run the 4G antennae, and don't do too much heavy duty computing activities (right now), but I'll definitely look at that for some more help.

    It is called the tapa talk app but we have to have SR activate it first on his end.

    battery defender shuts all services except text and calls when ever the screen is locked. your phone will not lose any power in this mode.

    problem with droid, is that none of the browsers really work well on it. they all have problems and bug out

    You go to the market app on your phone search for Tapatalk, it costs three bucks but that ain't bad. There are hundreds of other forums.
