For now the list will continue from no. 11 and to have a look at the 1 to 10 list of Must Have Best Android Apps for Xperia X10, head here.

11. MyBackUp

As i mentioned in my post here, that it is very Essential to BackUp your Data Frequently and there are a few android apps that help you do this job pretty eaisly. MyBackUp by Rerware does the job pretty quickly for you and would backup almost anything for you on your Xperia X10.

12. ThaiDail Pad

The most complete Smart Dialing Solution on your Xperia X10 is perhaps the ThaiDail Pad. It would eaisly take over the Default Dialer on your Xperia X10, unless you are in love with it’s look and feel.
ThaiDial Pad searches for your contact as you start tapping the Numbers on the Number Dial of the ThaiDial Pad. It not only searches for the T9 keyboard key combination of letters for the First and Last name of your Contacts, but it also tries to match the number irrespective of where it appears ( which part ) on the Contact Number.
Like it would also search for the contact if the ending digits of his mobile number are 99. To read more about it or find more detailed solution for Smart Dialing on Xperia X10, head over to this post. 🙂

13. Sim Checker

In the last post i mentioned about Where’s My Droid?, but it doesn’t that well when your phone is actually stolen. So, you might want to get a Total Anti-Theft Solution For your Xperia X10.
Sim checker almost does that completely! I said almost as if the thief is smart enough, no App can stop him from Flashing the Phone to some another Firmware or even factory resetting it. So, don’t get me wrong and think that this is not a good app. It does it’s job quite perfectly.
Incase your Xperia X10 is stolen, you’ll receive a message from the sim that the Thief tries to use it on the Xperia X10, and as soon as he connects to the internet, you would get an email with the Geographical co-ordinates based on GPS as well as Mobile networks cell co-ordinates PLUS the call log of your Xperia X10. 🙂
So, that would be more than enough for you to identify and track your Lost Xperia X10. 🙂
Although, there are a few limitations on the Trail Version of the app and you wouldn’t get the call log either, if it’s not the PRO version.
So, give it a try and if you like it do, buy it to ensure the Security of your Xperia X10.

14. Color Dict

Color Dict is a Universal Dictionary for your Android Phones, so you don’t have to look for Different Apps for Translation from one language to another or even thesaurus. Like if you want to have a German to English Dictionary for your Xperia X10, just install a German to English Dictionary File which is saved on your SD card and then you can search the word in English or German without going through multiple menus and you have the dictionary at the same place as well.
The Best part of this app is that it supports Quick Search Boxes, so you need not Open up the App every time you want to look for a word, just start searching from the Google search widget on your Homepage and you would get your word from the dictionary as well. 😀

15. handyCalc

The most complete Calculator Solution for your Xperia X10. I was a bit disappointed by the Pre-Installed Calculator of the Xperia X10. Sony Ericsson tried to modify the look of it as well to not match the original stock Android Version, but why did they leave it so ugly. And no Functions added either. So, i looked for few apps in the market which does the same job but in a better way.
I found quite a few of them, but HandyCalc does it like a scientific calculator, and not only that, it has a lot of other features like Currency conversion and others.
It’s a must have app on your Xperia X10, even if you use Calculator once a week. 🙂

17. ColorNote Notepad Notes

The most beautiful Notepad application on the Android Market. It does the it’s job pretty neatly and cleanly but it makes to this list out of several other Notepad Applications with much more features than this because, it give you the option to have colorful sticky notes on your HomeScreen of your Xperia X10. And that is what is most important to me from functionality and usability point of view. ( There are several other Notepad apps in the market, which offers much more specific options for notepad application, and i’ll try to cover all of them for you in another post. )

18. Google Goggles

In last post i mentioned that Google’s Gesture Search makes it to the Top 10 List, so Google goggles is not Far Behind either. With the Update that Google’s Goggle got a few days ago, this one certainly makes to the Top 20 apps for Xperia X10.
Now with the Update, you can actually translate from one language to another. And thats a really cool feature to have in a phone as many a times you get a picture of something described in another language and you simply can’t use any Translation tools to translate that, but with Google Goggles you can do that. 🙂

19. Voice Recorder

There is no Voice Recording App pre-installed on the Xperia X10. So, it becomes more of a necessity to find one good voice Recorder for the Xperia X10. There are a two Apps which does the job equally well, but Voice Recorder wins just because of the Interface. 🙂 Voice Recorder for android is pretty simple in basic and you can send the recoded voice directly to Gmail.
Well, you can still try Virtual Recorder by androiX, and you would be pleased with it’s performance. 🙂

20. Fring for Android

The most comprehensive Instant Messaging solution for the Xperia X10. And it does the Viop Calls too. 😀
Making free Skype calls from a Wi-Fi connection on your handset is a pretty neat feature in itself, but Fring aims to be a universal call and chat coordinator. It pulls in your phone’s contacts and matches up names with the add-on services you plug in, making it easy to call someone on Skype, and then chat them over AIM if they don’t pick up. If you give up on free services and just want to call that person, you can do that too.

    1. Yes, It’s not a Prob, there is a Crop Button at the top, use it to select the portion you want the Goggles to search, before you click the image. And everything should work fine.
      Let me know, if that worked for you! And If it didn’t, i’ll try to find some other solutions to it!

      1. I tried to use the crop button to focus on my PSP and some wine bottles but it could not recognize them. Haiizzz … I think I’ll uninstall this app. But thankz for your help !

  1. I m usin Xperia X10. It doesnt recognise a phonebook call if contact is saved without country code or saved with zero.
    e.g. if a no. is saved as 9422++++++ in the name of Mr. X, if u receive call from this no., the phone dosnt show that Mr. X is callin. Instead it shows an unknown call from +919422++++++.
    Any remarks on this?

    1. This is a Android 1.6 bug! to get rid of it temporarily, Export your contacts to google and then update your Xperia X10 to the latest software! ( R2BA023/R2BA026 ) And then re-import your contacts from Google by synchronizing them!


    1. Xperia X10 is a good phone The only drawback is Outdated Android Version on it. But Sony Ericsson has promised that it will get an update to Android 2.1 in Late Q3.
      You can also look for other options available in that range as Motorola backflip, HTC Wildfire, Samsung Wave, etc.

    1. Skype is not yet available for Xperia X10. There is a beta version that works on Xperia X10, but it’s of no use as it doesn’t allow VOIP. You can just chat with your Skype contacts. ❗
      Will let you know if i get a working version of Skype that does VOIP as well. Watch out for this space. 🙂
