  • Need Droid wallpaper help

    I just got a droid 2 after my EnV 3 went belly up (a circuit shorted out causing battery drainage and and high heat on the phone).
    So, I have been reading and reading about this and haven't gotten a good answer. I want a wallpaper (prefer from my gallery) but I somehow want the whole picture without cropping out 90% of it. I tried re-sizing it two different times to 2 different sizes (one a guy at verizon told me one my brother told me) but that just doesn't work. I don't care if it's pixalited much as long as you can tell what it is.

    How can I do that? And are there places within the phone (market?) where I can download some for free (other than the ugly ones that come with the phone)?

    And what are some good free apps that are helpful?

    Market - Apps - All applications - Top Free...or Just In.

    You can scroll down and find wallpaper, animated wallpaper, and theme sets with a tiny bit of searching. As far as creating my own from my gallery - never done that as I like the animated ones that came with my phone. (HTC Incredible) My wife does it with her Droid X and the photo automatically scales.

    As far as free apps... depends what you are into. My favorites are:
    • Bubble
    • CamScanner
    • ConvertPad
    • Compass
    • Earth
    • Google Sky Map
    • IMDB
    • Lookout
    • Metal Detector
    • My Tracks
    • RealCalc
    • ScanLife
    All the rest I use came with the phone...

      Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

        Other apps that I find useful:

        *Calendar Snooze
        *Astro File Manager
        *Delete old messages
        *Handcent SMS (My favorite for texting)
        *Movies -can also deal with Netflix queue
        *Scrambled Net (game for network geeks)
        *UltraChron (there is a lite and paid version)
        *Wifi Analyzer
        *Words Free

        There are others (Angry Birds) but I'm sure that'll give you a lot to get going with. :-)
