Anonymous

I am absolutely thrilled to be getting my brand new S3 on Saturday. I want to have some fun exploring it and all its features. To help me celebrate and to get the most out of my new phone can anyone suggest what are the must have apps?

 

Oh and on a more serious note, i have saved some texts on my old phone for legal reasons. How do i transfer them to my new mobile as I want to flog the old phone!! slight_smile

Apps are a personnal thing so what I like, you may not wink

As for backing up your Text messages, try this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature=search_result#...

I use SMS Backup+ which is ideal for me as it links directly into my GMail account as a seperate label under the inbox.

As Mi5 said its a personal preference, the three I use the most are BBC news, Sky sports News and Met office.
I forgot whatsapp, this is a must have.

Hi, nice 1 I hope you enjoy the s3. 

Have a look on androidforums.com there is a section for the S3 & loads of threads about apps/games/tips/troubleshooting etc.... very helpful & informative. slight_smile

Everything will be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, then it's not the end!!

I can never understand why people insist on adding extra apps to their Android phone to perform tasks their handset already handles!

Juice defender/battery monitor/power monitor/advanced task killer etc......

Extra memory used, extra battery - defeats the object surely? tongue

I think some Android users have caught i-phone-itis, ie/ "there's an app for that"!! wink
