  2. Google Apps
  3. Amazon Apps for Droid



LunchCast – Droid APPs and GPS

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

I own the Motorola Droid, and I keep looking for new apps that work and are usable.  There are a lot of apps out there, but after reading the comments on most of them, they seem to have problems or they are in beta stage of the software development.

I found this App called GPS Tracker which claims that it is free.  You can then track the phone via the website for all to see.  Is there security to only allow the people you want to see where you where?  The website is provided by

Some other apps that I really like are the Google Shopper, Shop Savvy, Google Goggles.

Verizon Motorola DroidHave a new Droid Phone?  I have purchased my Droid at Walmart and found it to be a great deal.  $188 out the door without having to deal with mail in rebates like you would at the Verizon Store.

One of the many great apps that I have used so far is QIK.COM. [qik user=”dkwizard1″]

With this app, I was able to stream video of my sons soccer and cross country events live to the internet.  Being new to the app, I didn’t realize that the default setting was set to private instead of public.  Once I changed it, everyone was able to watch the events live.  I liked the chat interaction from the people watching from the live stream.  I did notice, as time went on, the lag was almost up to 4 minutes.  I am guessing this is due to data congestion on the network.  However, once I stopped the stream and restarted, all was ok again.  I also noticed that It recorded the event on the website instead of my phone.  That is a great space saving feature.  At this point, I am not sure how long or how many videos I can save on the website.  The best part about this app, is that it is free.  One of the cons about the app is that there isn’t a zoom feature.  One of the comments was that the viewers needed binoculars to watch the event live.
