Updated the first post with some softwares I've been using recently. Bumping this because I see a lot of software questions popping up recently. Feel free to post your preferred application and I will add them to the list!

I wish I had your luck when it comes to videos, Gevrik. I am having a lot of trouble with the default Video Player. Until VLC or GOM puts out a Video Player for android, can anyone suggest for me a player (one that is not just a gui skin that uses the existing player).

Thank you so much.How long do you think a video can be played with wifi off? Does the device work while being recharged? Can it be recharged via usb? How long does it take to fully recharge?Sorry, too many questions in perhpas not the best thread :S

If not it takes around 2 hours. (might be because of the way I had to use an adaptor for the US power connector to an EU then another adaptor to get a UK plug.
I ordered a PSP charger (it's the same) so when that arrives I'll let you know if that influences anything in regards to charging.)

I had to tweak the settings to get games to load. Just play around with them and it will work. Here is a video of me playing FF3 on the aPad via SNESoid

Thanks!I will try that out tonight. With No Multi-Touch, RPG and Puzzle are pretty much the only game that can be played with the virtual keyboard.

I thought the aPad had Multi-Point screens? doesn't that mean the same as Multi-Touch?? Just wondering because, that's what was said in the ad I looked at.

No multi-touch on the aPad. A screen that supports that would boost the price of the device by 100%.

I was lucky, I had a mini speaker with the same end so did'nt use the converter plug thing - Looked quite dangerous anyway so no bad thing!Rockchip iRobot 3.5hybrid cfwiPhone 3g Jailbroke

Games / EntertainmentRobo Defense...this game has got to be one of my favorite things about my aPad. My wife hates it b/c I end up playing it from the comfort of our bed late at night while she's trying to sleep.^^Click image for YouTube videoNote: The game would crash with the default firmware (as well as many other apps I used), so I upgraded to the hybrid aPad/Archos firmware which you can find here. I'm running the 4.1 firmware.
