    Thanks dmapr, a rather useful program at a reasonable price at that. :)

    I will be sure to mention it to my iCultee friends :D
    Thanks hf1khal, please post your experience with it, when you do.

    Although Shizam would be perfect candidate for posting this... here's another recommendation. I love the TrackID app on my SE, and now iPhone has Shazam available which is similar. One of the iPhonites in the office said it was the best free app he downloaded so far.

    Midomi also does song identification. It generally only needs about 10 seconds of sampling, but it also handles singing or humming the tune.

    Here's a few other apps I recommend for their quality:
    Epocrates RX - medical drug reference
    MySpace - slick interface for MySpace, but no blog support yet
    eBay - quick access to auctions
    AOL Radio - streaming music
    WeatherBug - detailed weather info with radar maps
    BoxOffice - movie information and showtimes
    Google - basic, but it has autocomplete and is quicker than opening Safari then getting the keyboard up

    Other good ones that I haven't used much, but should be popular:
    AIM
    Twitterific
    Flashlight
    PhoneSaber

    I also like a few sites that are designed for the iPhone:
    ESPN
    PicasaWeb (have a lot of photos on here and this makes it easy to show them off on the iPhone)
    Google Calendar (and Gmail, etc)
    USAA

    And on a lighter note, iPint is as unbelievably cool as it is utterly useless :D But hey, it's free! ;)

    This technically isn't an App, but it virtually is. On your iPhone (or iPod Touch) go to The Weather Channel. It should bring up the weather for your location. Then bookmark it to your home screen and viola, a nice weather app.

    It displays current weather, 10 day forcast, radar map (with motion), cloud cover map (with motion), and cloud and radar map (with motion). Best of all you don't have to download anything. Just have some type of internet connection.

    I think I've got myLite now. It lets you specify the color, and also various strobe effects that rotate between colors. Oh, and there's also a lighter with flame.

    My new fav thing is a Web App (not sure the direct link) but it's the card game Phase 10, the only downside is you can only play against the computer, not other real players, but if you're looking to kill time, it's a great way to do it.

    I recommend these:

    For your PC, QuickPWN to jailbreak your iphone. Takes 10 minutes and it is so easy it's foolproof!

    Via Appstore:
    WeatherBug - More detail than the default iPhone weather app.
    Shazam - Identify title/artist of songs
    AOL Radio - Listen to CBS and AOL Radio stations
    Pandora - Make your own radio station.
    Last.fm - Similar to Pandora
    FStream - If you like Shoucast and you need AAC support, this is the best.
    Tuner - Listen to Live365 stations and a lot more.
    Parlingo - Much better than AIM, plus support for MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, etc.
    Fring - Use your favorite VoIP service and save on minutes and long distance.
    i.TV - Your favorite TV listings. Scroll through a time grid or search your favorite shows.

    Via Cydia or Installer:
    SwirlyMMS - Send/Receive MMS on your iPhone
    WifiToggle - Turn off/on WiFi with a single touch.
    swapBT - Turn off/on your Bluetooth with a single touch.
    VoipOver3g - Spoof apps into thinking they're running on WiFi.
    Cycorder - Record video on your iPhone
    PDANet - Tether your iPhone's 3G to your laptop via WiFi. Turns your iPhone into a WiFi router.
    Chronus - Back up your Installer and Cydia apps. You'll need this every time you upgrade your firmware.
    BossPrefs - Hide/unhide app icons, change home button behavior, change your battery indicator, and some other perks.

    Here is my current is of favorite apps:

    Bloomberg - gives a lot more market details etc.
    Google - the voice search and general search is very goooood!
    Recorder - improved versions now can pause during playback
    TruPhone - if overseas, cheaper calls to anywhere via wifi - free iphone to iphone - of course works in the US too.
    i.TV - listings of movies, TV , theaters, and Netflix
    NY Times - gives the paper in a readable format
    NPR Mobile - chose and listen to npr stories
    NPR (from NPR website) - same, but a different interface
    Tuner - FM tuner for stations around the US - I use the live stream of NPR from Boston
    BoA - Bank of America iPhone interface for mobile banking
    Yelp - locates you and tell you what food is nearby
    mSecure - a good way to password protect your important numbers- Credit cards, ss#, etc
    TWC - The weather channel. more details than the native iphone app. can have multiple cities
    Conversions - what is a meter in inches?, $$ too.
    Livestrong - track your food, weight, exercise - synch with webpage - over 450K food, restaurant nutrition listings listings
    Shazam - I.D. that radio song that you don't know the title of
    Pandora - picks and play music streams
    AOL Radio - similiar to Tuner but complements the stations
    MotoChaser - road game using the iPhone accelerator for driving
    Translator from a choice of foreign lang to english
    Amazon - you know
    eBay - you know
    Mobile Fotos - for uploading and viewing photos with Flickr

    Also there are Solitare and Soduku games a plenty - still fooling with them.

    There are some spreadsheet, word programs, but I haven't tried them.

    If I may... Cydia and the apps below it are for jailbroken phones only.

    I haven't seen the need to jailbreak my phone yet!

    I just want to add this link: iPad/iPhone App News and Reviews :: App Advice as they review apps and also list some of the apps that go for free. I have seen many good apps go for free (however most of the apps are games). Just keep on the look out.

    Not that many. I have about 268 apps. With your post you just reminded me that I need to clean up the unused. With that I think I will end with close to 200.

    For those that go to the gym or even work out at home and are looking for a nice app to track your progress as well as your workouts, "Easy Gym Tacker" is a great app that you should check out. There is a spot to record all the workouts that you do as well as the level of difficulty. Here are a few screenshots of this app:

    Lets update this, many new apps have come out and also many new iPhone users.

    Thanks much.

    I had a problem to solve for a friend- transfer any file over local wifi or Bluetooth to other iOS devices ( not on the same apple ID) or to a Mac laptop. And not using the Internet. I think Dropbox requires an Internet link.

    Works pretty well. Tried a photo and a word doc. Called InstaShare. Maybe other apps are there but this works. Works like Airdrop on the Mac
