Yup - and the same goes for the Swiss (Intl Airlines) app. Their offerings include iPhone, Windows and Blackberry - but no Android. The mind boggles.

If you can't wait until then there is a very good app on the market called Timetable Switzerland. It seems to use the SBB data base. I find it very accurate for info on platforms and delays too.

yeah, good question.

Anyway - it's out already and offers the same functionality (e.g. tickets can be bought from within the app) as the WP7 and iPhone versions

Handcent- FREE

A messaging replacement app that completely replaced the default one...
So I installed Handcent and it's mucho better than the stock Messaging.

But, now Messaging stills starts automatically, so when I receive an SMS, I get two notifications, one from Handcent and one from Messaging.

I can stop Messaging from the task manager, but how do I stop it restarting automatically when the phone boots? Or even uninstall it?

You can disable notifications in the settings menu of the old messaging app.

Have you tried Meebo? Or am I not understanding what you're after here?* Personally, I find it slightly annoying that it doesn't start automatically and I have to remember to switch it on when I leave WiFi.



*Given my level of technological aptitude, this is highly likely.

Re: Android application reccommendations

I highly recocmmend the following apps:

Go Launcher is a homescreen replacement )like Launcher Pro) except imo quicker, and has all the features that the paid version of Lp has for free. Very, very nice.

Go SMS is a messagin proigram a la Handent, and again is very fast, slick, with a great interface.

Disable the notifications inside the stock messaging program?

Re: Android application reccommendations

My contribution to this useful thread : Navdroyd.

It is a navigation software. The big plus is that you can download maps to your phone so you don't need a cellular network connection. Quite useful when you are abroad : no more roaming!

Price : 6 CHF

Re: Android application reccommendations

I wrote another free app. I got sick of annoying timer apps where you had to press up/down several times to set a timer so, I wrote my own. You can download it from the Android Market:

https://market.android.com/details?i...roidgram.timer

or with the QR code:
