Mar 2, 2010 7:31 AM –
20 of the best Backflip Apps… Now that AT&T has joined the Android revolution, the first question new Android users will ask is “what Android apps should I download”? Luckily we’ve created a simple guide to get you started:
First we’ll start with the operating system version of the Motorola Backflip at launch, which is version 1.5… the latest and greatest to date is 2.1 (with majority of users on 1.6). This may affect your ability to download some apps as they are compatible with higher versions of the OS. Why is the OS version so out of date? Motoblur… Motorola tricked out the software for social networking ease however they have not released Motoblur on the latest and greatest Android OS. Don’t fret an update is coming soon.
Now that we’re over the OS hump, we’ll recommend some of the best Android apps for your Motorola Backflip… many for free!
