    Lightbulb New To Android?!? Check This Out!

    Hello and to the forums


    Im 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!!


    NOTE: this is the DX one, the general android one is in the new members area


    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 taskillers: some people use them, others (including me) do not. its up to you what you ultimately choose to run on your phone. Im just posting these to help ease into the new OS and get some helpful tips to create a setup that works for you.



    Motorola's site covers the basics of using the DroidX and Android OS
