    New To Android?!? Check This Out!

    Hello and Welcome to the forums!


    I’m just putting this together to help out all that are new to the Android OS. Its hard coming from a non-android phone and trying to just jump right in. So here are a few (well, a lot) of links to get reading on to help you become familiar with the operating system.

    Will add more so check back!! You can skim through and find which article(s) suit you.

    NOTE: just because I post it, it does not mean i agree with it. One example is the use of task killers: some people use them, others (including me) do not. its up to you what you ultimately choose to run on your phone. I’m just posting these to help ease into the new OS and get some helpful tips to create a setup that works for you. Your mileage may vary and, as always, every (An)Droid is different!

    (this is a repost of my DX write-up, with more generalized links used)

    Is this stickied yet? This is a great resource even for some long time users. Not just new ones. But perhaps it should be in an easy to find location for people?
