Switching from Droid or another Android device like the Samsung Facinate to the new Verizon iPhone and curious which are the best, most must-have apps you need to make yourself feel at home? Well read on for TiPb’s top 5 most recommended, most must-have apps to get your Android experience maximized on iPhone.
The Verizon iPhone is almost upon us and it looks like many of you are making the big switch! Whether you're leaving the AT&T iPhone or moving from BlackBerry or Droid, you'll have to move your data over and maybe look for ways to keep some of the functionality you're used to. That's the topic for this episode of TiPb TV!
Sure the iPhone is popular and famous for being easy to use but It can be stressful to leave a network or device you're used to and comfortable with and pick up something new. The good news is if you're going from the AT&T iPhone to the Verizon iPhone you're just an iTunes backup and restore away from the simplest switch imaginable. If you're going from BlackBerry or Droid, however, the differences will be more pronounced.
Rene and I go over how cloud services like Gmail can help you get your contacts over (and provide push email, contacts, and calendars!) and App Store apps like Kik Free - (iTunes link], Waze [Free - iTunes link] and others can help replace things like BBM and Google Navigation.
If you're used to rooting on Android or themes on BlackBerry we'll also introduce you to Jailbreak and the new ThemeIt store for iPhone. And if you need any extra help we have Verizon iPhone Forums just waiting for you as well as our TiPb Guides and TiPb Tips sections with tons more info.
So are you ready to make the switch? Watch the video above and let us know how it's going for you in the comments!

Phil Nickinson from Android Central has done a full review of the Verizon Motorola Droid 2, the second coming of the first Android phone to really rocket into the mainstream. With a big screen, ample app marketplace, full hardware keyboard, and Android 2.2 Froyo, it seems to improve upon the original in every way, even if it now faces stiffer competition from its own sibling on its own network, the Droid X. How does it net out?
Our sibling site Android Central has just published a full review of the Verizon Droid Incredible -- the latest Google superphoneAndroid competition to the iPhone. (And yes, it does seem like they're coming more than once a month now -- we feel bad for Phil!).
