So, as you might have already have heard, after what feels like a lifetime of Apple and iPhone (Since 3gs) I'm on to an android phone.

I've grabbed a few podcast app recommendations thanks to all, is there anything else I need to be looking out for? Anything I've been missing out on? I've just got the standard Twitter app for example.

So far so good, I like the screen although my hands feel like they might slip off the side of the screen and the photo quality seems better than my 6plus, looks like it deals with bright lights and daylight better.

The autocorrect seems to have a mind of its own now, and as I used the word fucker earlier it now jumps to that every time I press the f button.

Fenix is the Best Twitter app as recommended to me by Benjo, that's pretty much all I used TBH.

Oh, Also uTorront if you want to download any Torrents (Legal Ones obviously)

I also used to use Nova launcher as I didn't like the Android setup that came installed.

Awesome.

Cheers for the shout out Daz, already changed my keyboard and will check out the twitter one and something somethings torrents.

I'll see what that nova gig is too, this is like learning to phone all over again.

The launchers just modify the OS, the one I mentioned gives you a lot more functionality and customisation options, whilst making it easy to revert back to the original setup

Fenix Twitter app is good but the dev is rewriting a new version at the moment, so not sure I'd recommend the current one as it's likely to be a new purchase.

Don't tend to have many apps on mine, but some of the ones I use are:
-Nova Launcher (and Prime addon thing, only grab it if you don't like the Samsung Homescreen )
-Feedly - just use it for news feeds
-Flash Scores - to see how bad your football team is doing
-Relay - Reddit app
-Pocket Casts - Podcast
Fenix - Twitter *new app coming*
-Google Rewards - Free money innit
-SwiftKey - keyboard replacement

Good that it works on Chrome too, so you can easily sync between mobile and PC /Mac. I personally prefer to keep my newsfeeds out of my Twitter timeline so I can just see stuff from real people on there and all website news and stuff on Feedly. But maybe that's just me being all old school and anal!
