  • Your favorite iPhone apps

    What are your favorite apps? Mine are:
    1. Shazam- used to identify music by sampling. AWESOME when you want to know the name and artist of a song but have no one to ask!

    2. Pandora- streaming "intelligent" internet radio that has you input your favorite bands, then creates playlists for you. By clicking on the thumbs up or thumbs down, it learns what you like and narrows your playlist. A great resource if you heard a new band and want to listen and decide if you like it before you go buy it!

    3. Photoswap- OK, this one's just fun. You take a photo of something wherever you are, and it sends you back a photo from another random user. You can "message" the sender back with other photos if you like what you're seeing. Yeah, the usual caveats apply to this one, but there is a "report" feature.

    4. the Audi racing game- it's basically an autocross for your iPhone. Annoyingly addictive.

    5. Urbanspoon- helps you randomly choose a restaurant based on location, price range, or type of cuisine. Links to directions, reviews and phone numbers.

    6. Bubblewrap- just like the real thing, and keeps hungry kids entertained for a LONG time when you're waiting for your food to arrive at the table


    Share! What are your faves? What should I go download next?!

            Pandora

            Facebook Mobile

            Craigsphone (Craigslist Mobile App)

            Flashlight (super simple, but handy at times)

            I haven't been super-impressed w/ Shazam, it fails to ID a lot of things I throw at it. I suspect their library is mainstream-oriented.

                iTreblid -- Dilbert cartoon to your phone
                Sol Free (solitaire) and Backgammon
                AP Mobile News
                Star Wars FX

                I'm trying the TV.com app as well. So far its pretty neat, but audio is often out-of-synch with the video, which is annoying.

                  I use the flashlight and voice notes all the time. I also have and use the local traffic cam app. The altimeter and iHandy level are neat but are rarely used, as are some of the free games I got. I do use the iFart now and then to wake up the boys at work some mornings over the intercom.

                    Dood, are you listening to Afghan prayer chants or something? I listen to some pretty obscure stuff, and it almost always finds my music!

                              well as far as what I use the most:
                              Lux Touch (like Risk) perfect 5 minute waster
                              Shazam (I've had success with college radio and I've never heard of half of what they play)
                              AOL Radio
                              Slacker
                              Facebook
                              Now Playing (movie times)
                              iTreblid (Dilbert daily)
                              and the one that makes me smile every time: iWhip lite. Just a picture of whip and a motion controlled whip-crack. Everyone loves it.

                                      An S2000 app would be cool, just the engine start button that you push and you hear the car start up.

                                      Someone get on that! lol.

                                        Bill Gates bans iPhones and iPods from his home

                                        Even his wife has iPhone envy: "And even Melinda herself admits to an occasional pang of Apple envy: "Every now and then I look at my friends and say, 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone.'"

                                        His kids are at just about that age that I feel very, very sorry for them. Who wants to be stuck with a Zune or Blackberry with no or few cool apps when all of your friends have an iPhone?
