I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    Regarding Auto Finder. I use MyCar Locator, which has a much larger user base.

    Cool apps this week.

    Type your ring tone desperately needs to be able to set ring tones by contact before it will be useful.

      I’d only use it so the Id record specific names. I found ringtone that say things like your sister/mom/boyfriend/doctor is calling. But I’d use this for specific names or things like Walmart Pharmacy or Uncle Steven or Cousin Rachel or Dr Smith etc
