FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

The Droid X Diary Day 2

It is actually more like several weeks but what the heck I needed a title. I mentioned lack of documentation for the Droid X. I went to the downloaded manual to find out how to add customized ringtones. The manual had butkus, zip, zero on how to add ringtones. I surfed the web and discovered that if I downloaded music I could then hold the icon down for that song and it would ask me if I wanted to use it for a ringtone. Why that isn’t documented is beyond me.
Of course my son then proceeded to show me an app that allowed me to do ringtones even easier. No download time needed. Arrgghh, I’m supposed to be the family techie.

The apps I have tested and use so far are:

Bubble Burst Free which is an apparent clone of my old favorite Bubble Breaker.

FBReader which is successfully reading the epub format books I have copied from my computer to the phone. Formatting works and reading is seamless.

Adobe Reader which I have used so far on the downloaded manual for the Droid X.

How Far Am I which tells you how far you are from the center of the green on your chosen golf course.

RingTone which had the music I wanted to use for my ringtones.

WordDrop is a word game similar to the famous BookWorm without all the bells and whistles. It still is a good time killing game.

QuickOffice which I did not download, it came preloaded. It handles Word and Excel files quite nicely.

If you become frustrated with your smart phone google your problem with the name of your phone. I have found many forums that have a wealth of information on how to get the most out of your phone.
