    Question Car Cradle and Desk Cradle apps. Really? What for?!

    Might as well ask you guys something else, too... (while I am making a pest of myself tonight! LOL!)

    Whatintheheck are the CAR CRADLE and DESK CRADLE apps for?! Do any of you guys actually USE 'em?!

    They came pre-loaded, and for the life of me, I can't figure out their value?! Does the screen not go to sleep when those apps are running, or what?!!! And if not, then aren't they just silly battery-suckers?!



    THANK YOU!

    There are special cradles you can buy like one for your car or desk. The car cradle makes accessing key features quicker and easier and the desk gives you a nice clock for your well... Desk

    Actually I use both and are very handy. Car cradle makes it easy because there are 5 apps that I use while driving instead of having to fumble through menus and such. Also desk cradle is similar concept main feature being alarm clock with weather, music etc. Just makes things more handy.

    Thanks... I guess that's what I thought... but with the phone going to sleep after a few seconds, it seems rather... I dunno, pointless to me, I guess. I thought I must be missing something!!! LOL!

    Thanks, Paul, I think we were posting at the same time.

    Well, it's good to know that there is someone out there using 'em and liking 'em! See? What do I know?! LOL!

    Thanks again!

    The screen shuts off on desk cradle after a while so it's all good. On stock froyo the car cradle screen shuts off as well (annoying) but on PW it stays on like it should.

    On that note there is also an option to keep screen on while charging if it turning off annoys you.
