    Tap forms
    Jaadu VCN
    Stickies
    Notebook by Appigo
    Air Sharing
    Toodledo tasks

    Thanks

    I just picked up "Infinite SMS: Send/Receive Free SMS Texts", but didn't have a chance to use it yet.

    Beatmaker is a great music making program.

    Star Walk is a really nice astronomy app.

    BeeJive IM: Pricey but the best IM client IMO. It's worth it.
    Facebook
    Sportacular: Gotta check my scores, and the Favorite Teams feature is great. Plus it's free.
    Air Sharing: Got it when it was free, and it's worth it even now.
    iHeartRadio: If only I could find wifi in locations other than my house (I'm on an iPod Touch) this app would be so handy.

    Facebook's the only one I really use. It's ridiculously limited, though.

    simply outstanding

    Trunk - a personal wiki with search
    iThoughts - a mindmapping app
    Writepad notes - natural writing notepad

    All 3 have progressive improvements over time from developers who are responsive.

    Nothing currently beats them in their app sub-genre

    :cool:

    Distant Shore can be a fun diversion (see the long thread in this very forum). Like some others have mentioned, LastFM is useful for discovering new music. Now Playing is very handy for local cinema listings/times. I like Klick for uploading photos to Flickr quickly. OldBooth is a silly but fun photo app for making your portrait into old-style images (but it needs to work better to be an essential purchase I'd suggest). Wikipanion is good for looking up Wiki entries on the fly. WootOn! is great if you're a Woot! addict and just HAVE to see the daily Woots. I also like Facebook and Yelp, and recently discovered InstantFAIL which simply allows you to stamp the word FAIL on any of your photos. Totally puerile but fantastic!

    I really like Text Guru. I picked it up for $.99 a long time back.
    You can use it to create, view, and edit (a few formats) text documents. It has local copy/paste and you can download documents from the web.

    Please respond to the thread, whoever gets it. It would also be very cool if that peson could post a short review of the game :)
