How To Install An App on Droid X | Top Best Droid X Apps of 2011

7:47 PM

The Droid X runs on an operational system called the Android 2.1 and is soon going to get an update to the even more amazing Android 2.2. It has a 4.3 inch HD screen and an 8MP camera which blow the competition out. It also has a OMAP 3630 1GHz central processing unit built by Texas Instruments which allows it to be the only cell phone which supports true multitasking and also makes it twice as fast as the other similar Smart Phones such as the Apple iPhone 4G, HTC Evo, and others.

Calorie Counter pulls up the nutritive data on all food groups. It gives the total calories, fat, protein, and conjectured net carbs. Inside only one or two days, you will be in a position to see your eating patterns. As it goes wherever you go, you don't need to attend to get home to log everything in.Simply select which restaurant, (and there are hundreds) and it will bring up the food menu where you simply select your food item, right away you get the nutritive information. As you are aware Motorola and Google have mixed to bring us the Droid.

The Barcode Scanner. This application is cool and useful in equal parts. You can use your droid to scan barcodes at the grocery or supermarket, and fetch relevant product information. There is another application that does a similar thing. It's called "Calorie Counter." When you use your droid to scan the barcode, it gives you the nutritional details of the product.

You can also add photos, webpages, emails, or snippets of text with hyperlinks and then send them via email or SMS. You can add media by taking a photo, scanning a product, using an existing photo, or making an audio recording. The latter is a great feature while on the road.

However, it has one serious shortcoming that I hope will be remedied soon: it will not allow you to sort items within a list, but strangely it sorts lists. Go figure. Accordingly, for large lists, you may wish to find another application that will sort items internally. For just my shopping list, I chose a Shopping List for this purpose. It does the job, but does not allow imports/exports or additions by voice.

The best way to figure the whole thing out is to grab a Droid Bar code Scanner app (or whatever smart phone you use) and start playing around. Search the Droid Market for "bar code scanner" or "qr code" and try a few of them out. Once you get the app you'll start to become aware of how handy this whole thing is. The possibilities are staggering for what can be done and for what you can gain by using these things.

First off most of the bar code scanners out there can be used on normal bar codes. For example, go into a Walmart or any store and find an item, any item, with a bar code. Let's say you're shopping for a second monitor. Open the app and scan the bar code on the monitor tag and something very cool happens.

Having an app developed for your business that can be used internally amongst your employees and partners is a good idea if you want to automate or synchronize the applications you are using with your iPhone, Droid or iPad. Think of the FedEx guy that delivers your packages.

They carry a handheld device that logs the time and place the package was delivered just by pointing it to the laser tag in the labels and all the information is updated to their main system including Fedex's website. Imagine having that capability right in your own pocket! You can update your timesheet, log in to your Inventory system or make a quick entry to your Accounting records in just a matter of seconds.
