The built-in mobile web browser in the LG Chocolate needs a lot of improvements to be a truly top notch web browser, so it is quite natural for LG Chocolate owners to look for a third party alternative.

Hiding a file from view is one of the best ways to keep it secure from curious people who get a hold of your phone. This app gives you the ability to set the status of individual files from Visible to Hidden or Hidden to Visible. You can protect access to this app by setting a password, which means even if someone knows you have hidden files and you have an app that hides them, they still can't do anything about it because they have to know your password before they can set those hidden files to Visible.
There is no question that GMail is one of the best free email service providers available.
