Default Just bought an iPhone, recommend your fav or most useful apps!

Well I've finally taken the plunge after much coverting and bought a iPhone. I love this phone!!!!
Ok being an iphone virgin I thought I'd start a thread for any of you techno loving people out there to tell me their:-

1. Favorite apps.
2. Most addictive apps.
3. Useless and wished they hadn't bothered apps.
4. You must have this or your life isn't worth living apps.
5. Most bizarre app (anybody have Ipoo out there?)

I leave this in all your capable, learned and sometimes perverted hands.

Lightbulb Re: Just bought an iPhone, recommend your fav or most useful apps!

Apps:

PS Mobile by Adobe free photo adjusting app i.e. trimming, adjusting light balance etc.

Shazam what's that record playing, tag it, find out in seconds

Wattpad free books to read on train etc. Got $200 of Terry Goodkind for free off there.

Facebook mobile

Google mobile

Also, don't forget when surfing you can add sites like this to your main screen by tapping + and add to home screen giving you quick path in.

Start in middle and spread two fingers appart to make screen view bigger.

They are all one marketing decision away from obsolete ... HTC Lust is next followed by the HTC 3G-Spot and finally the HTC XTC.

You bought an iPhone in April. The new one will be released in 8-10 weeks. FAIL.

Although my most used app in the xe currency one, keeping an eye on the exchange rate. Got quite a few games, I like TapTap Revenge, and also have Facebook app.
