    ditto, I uninstalled ATK and my battery usage was better. Just use the clear memory phone option if you are having performance issues

    Anyone know of a Poker Machine style game instead of the old school Vegas ones?

    I can only find old school slot machine type ones.

    I've been trying out Locus and it can export various formats, including KML for Google Earth/Maps.

    Unfortunately it seems that Google Earth for Android doesn't support KML - at least I can't get it to do so.

    Is there any game that you can play over 2 android phones, like LAN style?

    I been trying to find a game that we can play together on 2 diffrent phones, instead of pass-n-play

    Story mode is short.... But there's multiplayer which allows you to play with others on an ipad, iphone, computer, mac or android.

    Probably asked a few times but this is a big thread! Any free anti-virus recommendations? most popular in the marketplace include Lookout and AVG. I'm not really sure what I want it to be able to do, I just thought I should have anti-virus to make it harder for people to steal my datas :Paranoid:

    no matter how you secure your system, your personal data can always be acquired elsewhere, look at PSN lol.

    there were also reports that Google Mail server did get hacked...

    I bought Guerilla Bob, great game. Also Gun Bros is good and is FREE :thumbup:

    EDIT: does Lookout take up much battery? I have just installed it and it is running as a service with task bar icon. I do not have picture backup enabled.

    Recommendations for a good remote lock / locate / wipe? Using prey currently but can't wipe the phone.

    Could gps tracking from lookout be a battery killer? Not sure.....I reckon either that was on or a browser was open the other day and my battery was dead within a couple of hours. Probably the browser??

    Are you using the stock ROM? If so, you will notice that the GPS doesn't go on standby when it is turned on. In CM7.0.3 the GPS goes into standby mode automatically until Lookout uses it.
