I've seen that you can replace the default launcher app with something like LauncherPro, the onscreen keyboard with Swype or ShapeWriter, and I've heard of others. Does anyone have a list of all default apps in the base Android OS (version 2.2 preferred) that can be replaced?

  • Strictly speaking, neither of those examples are part of the Operating System. Sep 14, 2010 at 16:37
  • That is correct - updated question text.

1 Answer 1

  • Keyboard can be replaced
  • Browser can be replaced (Opera, xScope (i like), Dolphin HD, etc.)
  • Launcher can be replaced
  • Gallery can be replaced (3d gallery is my favorite)
  • Camera can be replaced (Camera 360 (drains battery like crazy), Retro Camera, etc.)
  • Hell you can even replace the kernel if you root.
  • Not an app, but you can add search providers like getting the DuckDuckGo app which allows you to search using all search tools, but ddg vs google.
  • Also, phone, contacts and sms apps can be replaced.
