Hello, just a couple days ago I finally got a hold of a android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3, this is my first android phone, I really wanted to finally get my foot wet with android phones, forking over the big bucks but it seems like I'm not using it as much as I could be, I mean the phone cost an arm and a leg but I've searched and searched and really haven't found a app or game or anything really, that I couldn't live with out or simply didn't interest me.

Heh, currently all I'm using the phone for is well what phones are made for but also the small game Pocket Frogs and Pandora.

So I thought I'd jump on here and ask for suggestions on what apps, games, widgets so on and so forth, I should take a look at, I don't really wanna spend money or very little unless its really worth the price, so more interested in free stuff but open to things that cost, anyways, thanks for any posted suggestions.

Oh right now I'm looking for more ringtones that are free, music or anime related and don't require me to sign up or require my phone number.

Again, Thanks!

Well, Android will play any MP3 file as a ringtone. Just connect it to the PC, and drop them into the "Ringtone" folder at the root of the internal memory drive. So you can edit them as you please on the PC, and just drag'n'drop.

There are TONS of free games out there, so many I won't even start to get involved in. Go to the Google Play Store and look by popularity under free games, and you'll find a million. Most free games are ad sponsored, but in most cases these ads only show up between levels.

For gadgets and apps, I'm addicted to Handmark gear. I use the Pro version of Tweetcaster (I have three twitter accounts for various purposes and this lets me handle all three in a simple windowed mode). Sportscaster is awesome if you can't watch a sports match. And there are a couple others in closed beta that are cool (but I can't mention details until the beta goes public).

Have fun with your new phone! Android is VERY open to modification, and there is tons you can do with it! The one thing I will say is I was never a fan of the Touchwiz OS shell Samsung uses, so you may want to get an clean Ice Cream Sandwich build (or Jelly Bean if it is available) and load that over the stock ROM. I'm running a Samsung-built Google Galaxy Nexus now, which runs pure Android, and it is LOADS faster, and less prone to desktop "random reboots." Kind of like when Windows Explorer suddenly decides it needs to quit and reload, and on my old retired Galaxy S Touchwiz did this all the time.

Give Dead Trigger a rip, Google Sky Map is fun to use and Wifi Analyzer is handy for those who work on networks and a must have is a flash light app.

Sweet a zombie game I love em. Thanks!

Also, any one know of a free game that you work at, I mean um not sure if any one has heard of Pocket Frogs, um hard to explain, something like Stronghold Kingdoms on Steam, like the sims, you know where you do a set of activities to keep something alive or running but you often have to give other things time to do, build or reasearch, games they you don't have to devote an hour or two out of your day, you can just hop in, research this or that, feed, this, mine resources for that or this.

Any games like that out there, I guess free or not?
