    Whats your best app to date? It doesnt have to be a game. Mine would have to be Bike or Die 2 and Touchgrind.

    Ever for games were loopy laboratory, and lux touch. Hoping for LLv2 one day, and looking forward to Lux DLX.

    Non games, definitely NetNewsWire, use it every day on the journey to work.

    Honourable mentions to snail mail, ocarina and PuzzleManiak (specifically untangle).

    The GF's favourite is Kyodai.

    cyber chess, (amazing to be able to play on a real chess server from my phone, against opponents on pcs), fieldrunners (simple but addictive), solitaire city, tetris, galcon.

    I also use the facebook app very often, the chat feature is great.

    Best app:
    1) SomaFM on Safari (Slightly cheating, but still awesome to have Soma playing in the background while doing other stuff compared to all of those other apps that stop streaming upon exit, just wish they could somehow get in track/artist names instead of the Quicktime logo)
    2) Things

    Best game:
    1) Scoops (Don't hate...I love me my ice cream)
    2) Pipes (What can I say, I like simple games to play on the subway)

    I couldn't pick just one. So here's my top 5.
    I put the app store links in for everyone, too... If for some reason they don't work, there's a search bar in iTunes. :D

    My Top 5 Best (or most used) apps:

    TextGuru - Great text editor. You can even code webpages and preview them. And the devs in the chat on their site are helpful with any questions and even let you know what's to come.
    TwitFire - It's the simplest Twitter app I've found, and with some innovative features and layout. Twinkle's on the runner up, it just takes twice as long to post on there.
    AirSharing - Pretty much a wireless flash drive. I use it often, and got it for free when it first came out.
    Facebook - Addicted.
    RunKeeper - I take a lot of walks and it's nice to track where and how far I went. Not so much as it's getting colder now though.


    My Top 5 Best (or most used) games:
    (36 games so far. I can say my productivity went downhill since I got my iPhone :rolleyes: )

    Super Monkey Ball - Of course.
    Touchgrind - I have confidence that in future updates this is going to be one of the best skateboarding games on any platform.
    SPiN - Such an innovative game. My mom and dad love it. :rolleyes: And from a great set of devs.
    Topple - Another innovative game that reminds me of a game me and my family used to play when I was little. Thanks for the memories, ngmoco:).
    Quick Draw - Pictionary on steroids. Very addictive. Just needs some harder categories (though "landmarks" is damn near impossible at times).

    Top 5 favorite apps (not games)
    1. BeeJive IM - Spend at least 40% of my time on iPod using this! Definitely worth $16 (to me anyway).
    2. Juxtaposer - photo app, lets you cut out pics and place them over others, for example: putting a cat head over a picture of one of your relatives) HILARIOUS app!
    3. Face Melter - another photo app, lets you morph pictures, very funny
    4. Wings - nice and relaxing
    5. PocketGuitar - I don't have a guitar (saving up) so this is always fun for me

    Top 5 games
    1. Bike or Die 2 - Sooooo addicting, 2600+ levels, extremely challenging!
    2. Guitar Rock Tour - I love Guitar Hero, naturally I love this game. :p
    3. Fuzzle - I love to play this once in a while and listen to my music when I have a few minutes to waste
    4. Tap Tap Revenge - overall fun game, and free
    5. 2079 - fun and addicting $1 game :D

    Drop Ship

    My first game I downloaded was Drop Ship my ngmoco. I love the controls and the interface as well as the retro feel. I love all the games I have downloaded but Drop ship is the one I return to after playing all the rest besides our own game ;)

    I hope ngmoco comes out with an updated version. I still think they nailed the best ship and shooter controls yet. I would like to see it integrated into more space/flight games.
