Default Android Owners...

I just bought the galaxy s iii. Changed over from the iPhone. So far enjoying the phone, except for typing and it's darned word finishing and small images on hbt and in texts.

They sold this thing as having HD viewing on the device,, but images texted to me are about 1/4 the size of the screen. And if someone posts a pic here on hbt it's smaller than a postage stamp.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Also, recommend some fun apps?

I'm trying to find the OBD interface App I used to reprogram the ECU on my old car. Went from 250hp to 300hp for free. Woohoo!

Dashcommander has a free version, Torque is 5 bucks.

Either requires a bluetooth OBD2 adapter.
