I wish to introduce "Handcent SMS". That is a very nice SMS client. Firstly, it looks much better than the black and white Default SMS Client.

Moreover, it supports "Text to speech" and "Voice Recognization"(I can't test it because I have not installed recognizer"). In additional, there is a set of SMS template. Yeah! I love it a lot. It saves me a lot of time to type, becuase my sms messages are always something like, "where are you" and "I'm running late.", those kinds of simple stuff! Now, I just need to select from the template for the reply!
Google Chat Send a file
Google added a new feature in iGoogle and Orkut. That is the "Send a file" for Google Chat in the widget of iGoogle and Orkut.
I used this feature, that is quite good! I don't need to install any plug-ins. I just logined into iGoogle and click a contact in the "Chat" Section. Lastly, I clicked the menu option under "Actions". That is it! The file is sending now!

Sadly, GMail has not this feature yet!
I was wondering where is the facebook app in Sense UI. In the settings, there is a section to enter facebook details. There should be an app for this. Today, I found it. We can see our friends' status updates under People! That is a good concept, grouping the facebook into the contact list. That is much better to have a standalone facebook app!
SenseUI - Timer
I found another great stuff in Sense UI this morning. Sense UI comes with a Timer and Stopwatch app by default. Before I upgarded to Sense UI, the default Android 1.5 has not any applications for timer or stopwatch. I had to download some third parties apps. Their interface is not as nice as Sense UI - Timer and Stopwatch. HTC should released Sense UI upgarde earlier! Now, I felt I entered an "improved" Android world!
SenseUI - Stopwatch
I found a lot of improvements in Sense UI. The first things I found, the email client got a new interface. You can choose to view the email grouped by conversations, rather than the traditional inbox. That makes more "Sense"! Because in the most of cases, I was dealing with a few issues at the same time. So, a lot of replies back and forward. Without the "Conversations" mode, I will lose the track of discussions! Yes, that is the reason I love Gmail a lot. Now I can use it in my Android Phone Email client too!
