    I don't think that I have that many that I use frequently, but my tops are:

    Ambiance: great ambient noise application, comes with a large selection of relaxing audio that can be mixed together and played back. Great if you need ambient sounds to help fall asleep.

    USA Manual: Declaration of Independence, Federalist Papers, Constitution, Emancipation Proclamation, Gettysburg Address, amongst others..all in your pocket, all for 99 cents.

    Stanza: Thousands of great books, all for free.

    Man this thread seems like the perfect incarnate of a thread to not be in the GAMES forums.

    faves not in any particular order;

    •Stanza - great free ebook reader with lots of customisable view options + free content
    •MyRail Lite - UK only rail info - locate nearest stations (even non gps iPhone) & live train info - (don't know why it's called lite - planning one to buy e-tickets?)
    •Tuner - Internet radio streams - has my faves like Secret Agent and KJAZ
    •Filemagnet - with Desktop app can sync files quickly from Mac to phone and vice versa
    •Joost - Film and TV streams - I've been catching up on early series of Peep Show etc
    •OldBooth - take a picture of friend and give them a weird retro look - fun at parties
    •Movies - good to check if a film on TV is worth watching as well as Theatre releases
    •Shazam - find out what that great track playing in bar is and link to iTunes
    •Truphone - great VOIP app - worked a treat when I was in Dublin at free wifi bar
    •WritingPad - clever - just make shape linking letters on KB - no need to tap
    •iFooty - has link to BBC live football match feeds and news (not sure works worldwide)

    Huh that's nice, I searched iTunes and couldn't find any of those games! Guess those games haven't been released in the US app store.





    Damn you know I'm bored when I'm being a smart-ass about these spam threads being in the games discussion forums

    Oh my god...iCam is the coolest easiest app I have downloaded to date. It's amazing. I'm even using an xbox live cam hooked to my home iMac...and I can view streaming video directly from my iPhone

    Documents to go's syncing with the desktop is very good.
    Tap forms is very good.

    Spellchecker with email is perhaps the app that I use the most.
