The one where I pick just the right picture | PSF


I’ve had my Droid now for 6 months.  I really like that I can access my email (and occasionally facebook and twitter), but I’ve sort of been app-less.

A coworker of mine is very pro-Droid and likes to tell me about his discoveries.

I listen because I never take the time to learn about them and search for them.

He showed me Handcent which makes my text messages look like an iphone.

I had to pick out a picture to represent myself.  You know, so I know which text messages I send.  And, unlike the teenagers, I just can’t be that person to turn my phone on myself and take a picture.

So, I resorted to the next best thing.  A picture of one of my kids.

This one was a requested (by her) silly face capture at the school Christmas party.

I thought it was a good choice.

And, my choice was confirmed when I saw the picture (with a crop) in action.

I’m quite certain I made the right choice.

    1. I’m liking it. My only complaint is that if I have a home and cell number for somebody, I don’t know which number to pick to send the message.

      1. Okay, never mind that….I just checked the settings and now I have it set to only mobile numbers (I guess the problem with that is if I don’t have it set to “mobile.”

  6. sad? i had to ask joe what you meant by “looks like an iphone” and he was all don’t you remember what it was like b4 you had the iphone…and i was like no. how sad is that?? truly i don’t remember.

    1. I think you’re getting old, lady..getting old.

      And, I never knew what the iphone looked at until I checked out the site with the auto corrects on it.

    1. It has it’s pros and cons..I wish I got a faster one with more memory.

  7. hi! i found you through our mutual bloggy friend, amanda, and to jump out of the shadows with this post. i, too, have had a droid for 6 months and no next to nothing about apps. i will have to try this handcent one. i love the look of the iphone texts! you should check out retro camera. it’s basically hipstamatic for the droid. 🙂

    1. I’ll have to check out retro camera. My camera is soooo slow, though, I wonder if this would make it slower.

      Glad you jumped out of the shadows and said hello.

  8. I’m app-less too. I need help! I’m gonna look at that one. 🙂

    1. Did you get it? What do you think?

      I’ve got words with friends now, too. It used to be just for iphones..except there are a million and one ads.
