    Not likely as long as the streetview imagery isn't owned by Google. :(:thumbdn:

    Any recommendations on an app that can read HTML files saved on the sd card?

    I've been using Swype for a while, couldn't imagine going back to a standard on-screen keyboard. Typing is so much quicker and reliable.


    Try brut maps, it's not perfect but it's slowly getting there. It now has map caching and toll/main road avoidance options as well.

    Well when I upgraded Google Maps last night, it installed 'Navigation' as well. I would assume from this it would mean that an Aus release is around the corner. (Surely they wouldn't force the install of it if they had no intention of releasing it in our market - as the Android Market is 'regional')

    Fingers crossed!

    "RealCalc" has been the best scientific calculator I have found that allows the use of brackets etc, but without being a PITA to use. Would die for one that (somehow nicely) replicated a TI-83 interface.

    I've installed Exposure Calculator. Seems to work right, though I haven't really had a proper play with it yet.

    I'm stumped finding 3 sorts of applications.

    1. A Reception Monitor:
    Something that will allow me to bring it up, and monitor the signal strength on 2G/3G/HSPDA networks. Tis not a huge issue but would be nice.

    2. A Data Monitor:
    Something that will split up data between Wifi, 2G/3G/HSPDA if possible. Also would like a Home widget for it. Tis not a huge issue as I can SMS vodafone for a check on data, and Netcounter works ok.

    3. Something that can edit MS Office documents. Not crucial but would be nice.

    and any other sites that are good, not Android Market, and safe to download and install apps from.

    Thanks :)

    =================

    EDIT: OnePunch Notes is worth checking out. Really easy to use and you can have numerous seperate notes attached to the home widget.

    Have you tried APPBrain?

    On another note, map brut was telling me to turn on to Warringah Fwy when there clearly is no road to turned to. I guess that's a reason why Google Nav's not officially release here yet.

    I use 3G Watchdog. You can set your monthly quota and reset dates to track how much data you're using. It doesn't count Wifi, though. It comes in a 2x2 or 1x1 widget, plus a tiny icon in the top menu bar with extra info in the pull down blind (Is that what it's called? - the notification drop down menu).
    When you go into the app you can see daily history too.

    ColorNote works quite well. Different coloured notes available. Choice of a blank notepad, or a checklist, and you can drop 1x1 icons all over your home screens for individual notes.

    Data counter widget does Wifi and Data.. it's quite detailed. Has a widget (duh!). It's good, use it :)

    Also Quick Office for your other app request. I haven't edited any documents but I often view Excel spreadsheets for work purposes. Loads quick and works well enough for my needs (which are very basic ;))

    I cant find anything that shows dBm but 'Cell Viewer' is what ive found works best for side-by-side comparison. I use it to gain a rough idea how good signal strength will be for site offices requiring nextg routers.
