    installed it last night and uninstalled after an hour. annoying keyboard design, and the buttons are even smaller. and whats with the putting a full stop after a word when you push space??? odd.

    thats because the space is automatic, you don't need to actually type it in.
    I'm quite liking swype, I just miss the dedicated emoticon button :(

    So how can I make better choices in what apps I use? Or is there somewhere that reviews the security of apps or something? Using the 'everyone else is using app X too.' isnt good enough as the article shows.

    Edit, might be using scare tactics...

    Looks like a much better version of Settings Profiles and Locale. Better as in more features and better as in better designed / presented. I own Settings Profiles but skipped Locale after it left beta.. they are ~ $5 and $10 respectively.. and Tasker would be approx $5 also. I'll have a play this week.

    I assume it has a backup to sd function so once you do set it up it's not a big deal.

    Just added an app called AutoTeeth. It auto turns on Bluetooth when it detects the Wifi disconnected from an AP. When I was looking, I was actually wanting something to schedule my Bluetooth switch on for drivng to work and home.

    So far I think it works pretty well. When I got to work this morning, I saw the wifi connect and the bluetooth turn off. It's great cause it means I don't have to turn BT on to connect to my car kit, it will happen automatically.

    Possibly, although why you'd try editing video on a phone...

    Old :p

    And for those with MMS issues, either double check your APN settings (mine are fine with 3, pm me if you want to check)

    Or try downloading a different messaging app that supports image downsizing! As my issue with MMS sending was the image was too big, and 3 impose a maximum MMS size.

    Which handset are we talking about here? Or is this a general Android problem?

    My Desire scales images easily for sending via message, and quick too :thumbup:
