Bing Music is a really cool app. You can pick any year back through the 1950s or so, and it will randomly shuffle through the Top 100 songs of that year. There is a little Bing ad after every 5 songs, but you can skip right past it.

NBA Jam is a must buy. Once you get used to the controls it great fun. Plays just like you remember. The game state saves so you can drop in and out when ever you want. Best mobile game I've ever played.

It's nice when you are reading something in Safari or playing a game - if you get a text you can respond right away instead of switching to the SMS app, typing the message, sending it, then switching back to the other app only to repeat the process when the next text comes in.

Same if you want to send a new text while you are in safari. You can create it without going into the SMS app.

I have Words with Friends on my Droid, and it crashes all of the time. Its really annoying too because when it does that, I have to log back in. I used to play Word Feud, but switched to Words with Friends because mostly everyone I know uses that. Word Feud never crashed on me once.

The app is pretty terrible. I primarily use it on my iPad and it works fine there. Its buggy as heck on my Droid X, though. To the point where I almost abandoned it. Too much fun, though.

Has anyone tried Chess with Friends? Seems like it would be pretty addicting like WWF... that is, if you know anyone who can actually play chess.

It works fine on my Ipad too. Unfortunately for me, my wife always uses my Ipad and I am stuck with the Droid.
