I checked out DROID Apps on the device for speed and functionality… Impressed! New to Android and need a few apps for DROID suggestions? No worries, AndroidTapp.com whipped up a good lineup of 50+ Android Apps to get you started (reviews include QR Code to scan with Bar Code Scanner app or launch app in the Market from your Verizon DROID).
