New Apps on the Android Market

This post will appeal to a very small group of my faithful blog readers, but I thought I'd share anyway.
 
There are a bunch of new apps on the Android Market from T-Mobile today.  They're releasing all the apps for the launch of the new MyTouch 3G, which is great because it benefits us G1 users too.
 
There are a couple ways you can get all of the apps.  T-Mobile created an AppPack which you download from the market.  It basically just takes you to a page in the market with all the apps recommended by T-Mobile.  You can also just search for "mobile recommends".  It accomplishes the same thing.
 
Among the most notable of the new apps are Sherpa, which was released yesterday and seems to already have an update today, an updated My Account, which uses more of the T-Mobile branding and adds new functionality, and T-Mobile Visual Voicemail, which you have to call a T-Mobile representative to setup. 
 
The setup for Visual Voicemail is pretty simple.  As I mentioned above, you simply call T-Mobile and they change your data plan from the G1 data plan to the Android data plan.  According to the rep, the plans are exactly the same, but the Android plan adds visual voicemail.  There are no cost differences or anything and the rep I spoke with was very nice and helpful.  I have to say I've been pretty impressed with T-Mobile lately and I'm excited about what's yet to come.
 
In similar news, there's talk of an official Facebook app for Android devices and it may be released by the end of the week.  We'll see what happens.
