Buying a Droid Incredible Today? Verizon Recommends These Apps

In case you haven’t heard, the Droid Incredible has gone on sale today at Verizon stores around the country.  You can get your hands on the latest super phone for $199.99 with a 2-year agreement.  If you head to want to save yourself some money, head to Wirefly and pick one up for $149.99 with the same stipulation.  Once you get your phone, these are some of the first apps you will want to download.  That is if you follow Verizon’s recommendation.

  • NFL Mobile – Exclusive to Verizon Wireless customers, NFL Mobile provides the latest news and information, including in-depth profiles of current players and draft prospects, team updates, mock drafts, expert analysis and more.  NFL Mobile is free for a limited time.
  • My Verizon – Customers can use this free app to access their Verizon Wireless accounts to get balances, usage numbers and payment information and to update features, services and Family SharePlan® lines.
  • Breadcrumbz – This free app allows customers to create personalized picture routes, which can be shared with friends and the world to use at a later time.  Using images, maps and voice markers, customers can build routes that go off road or inside buildings.
  • Visual Voice Mail – Instead of dialing in to voice mail, customers can use Visual Voice Mail ($2.99 monthly subscription) to access and manage voice mail messages by scrolling through their inboxes to pick the messages they need to listen to, delete or reply to.  Customers can choose to respond to their voice mails immediately via text message or callback.
  • Skype mobile™ Another app exclusive to Verizon Wireless, Skype mobile allows customers to make unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls for free anywhere in the world.  Skype mobile is always on, so customers remain connected anytime, anywhere in the United States.

Any seasoned Android owners out there have any recommendations of their own?  Share them in the comments below.

    Ha! I remember Breadcrumbz! It was one of the first apps in the Market, and as I recall was a winner in ADC1. When I tried it, it was confusing, impossible to figure out how/what to do with it. But that was almost two years ago, maybe they've updated it since then…

    The Droid HTC phone dialing application is a piece of junk! There is no hands free dialing it takes 3 screen touches to get a number dialed assuming it hears your voice command correctly. This means while driving you have to take your eyes off the road and look at the device 3 times at a minimum to make a phone call !!

    It is the worst voice recognition software I have seen in a while. The Droid HTC app gets it wrong more than 75 % of the time. I had a three year old LG flip phone that with a push of the button enbled full voice dialing without ever looking at the phone. The voice recognition was accurate 95% of the time. A very safe phone for use while driving.

    It is criminal and bloody stupid that manufactures are able to even put a phone like this on the market. Just another feature like texting while driving that makes our roads unsafe. I see it a dozen times every day on my commute to work! Arrogant and thoughtless people! May you all have very expensive rear end collisions tomorrow!

    These so called smart phones are mostly junk and dangerous. There needs to be a feature that if the device is in motion texting ceases to operate. When we kill enough of us maybe something will get fixed here!

    My not so incredible Droid HTC will be in the trash can shortly!
    The Droid iIcredible is far from incredible, what a lot of hype for nothing!
