== Applications I use ==

A more up-to-date [[http://www.appbrain.com/user/tamasrepus/|list of Android applications on my phone]] is over on my [[http://www.appbrain.com/|AppBrain.com]] profile.

== Replacing Gallery3D with Gallery (2D version) ==

Android 2.0 and above (and their respective Cyanogen ports) replace the Android's original 2D Gallery application with a fancy one (known as Gallery 3D) with whiz-bang 3D graphics.

Unfortunately, it's painfully slow on devices like the T-Mobile G2 (aka HTC Dream) and T-Mobile MyTouch 3G (aka HTC Sapphire/Magic). However, if you've rooted your phone, you can remove the 3D version of the app and replace it with the 2D one, which is significantly faster.

{{{#!highlight sh
adb shell rm /system/app/Gallery3D.apk
adb push Gallery.apk /system/app/
}}}

Download the 2D version of Gallery: [[attachment:Gallery.apk]]
