    Anyone have any useful / cool Iphone apps?

    My favs are:

    Google (Love the voice search function, no typing required)

    USA Today

    The Weather Channel

    weather channel

    urban spoon is very cool, finds you plaes to eat in your area.
    shazam, listens to music thru the mic and tells you what song it is.

    few crappy games, Ill start lookin at the pay ones soon.

    I have MLB.com "At Bat Lite" (gives me scores) and a AAA discounts application that shows discounts close to where I currently am.

    These are all free:

    i.TV is handy. Shows TV listings, and if you Netflix, you can link it to your Netflix queue

    TV.com. Watch clips or full episodes of shows.

    Simplify allows you to link to your computer's iTunes library, effectively giving you access to your full library wherever you are. (iPod Touch requires a wifi connection, of course).

    Remote acts like a remote control for iTunes.

    Flixster and Fandango finds local movie listings.

    If you have any desire to read USA Today, there is an app for it.

    As far as mindless timekillers:
    - Dactyl is addictive.
    - If you have kids, they'll have fun with Pumpkin. You make a custom Jack-O-Lantern by scrolling through various eyes, noses and mouths.
    - Zippo Lighter is silly and kinda cool in that the flame will flicker if you blow in the microphone. It also responds to which way you tilt your device.
    - TnL (Thunder 'n' Lightning). Tap the "Lightning" button when you see the lightning, then tap the "Thunder" when you hear the thunder and it will tell you how far away it was.
    - Speedtest will tell you your Upload/Download speeds.
    - WildWest is a pretty good pinball app, but not super. The creator is releasing a new pinball paid app, so they made this one free (used to be paid).

    - ESPN Cameraman is a bit addictive and frustrating if you like "find the differences in these two photos" type of thing. It's all sports photos.

    MLB at bat is a must have if you are a baseball fan. It streams at least one game a day to the phone plus you can get the audio from either teams radio gamecast.

    Around me is pretty good and if your phone is jail broken with cydia a real funny app is Bob Sagat. The Sirius XM app is ok but Stern isn't on there so I canceled it.

    Rebel, we have iFart, too. The other night we ran our iPhone through the car stereo and blasted some sweet iFart goodness while cruising through select parking lots. It rocked!

    do any of these aps do anything useful that can't be done on any other smart phone?

    I mean, far be it for me to question the significance of the IFart or the little zippo lighter one...it's just that I'm curious as to whether or not there was something more to this whole Iap thing.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Let me know when they get an iPhone app that simulates the functionality and reliability of my Blackberry.
    "Look, I'll pay you for it, what the f**k?!"

    "If I don't make her happy in the bedroom the wife gets bitchy for days at a time, but when I come to bed ready for action she laughs and laughs. She even laughs while I make my moves so I know I must be pleasing her as only I can do."

    I have a blackberry and it seems like all the phone/mobile device I could ever need. It allows me to talk to people like a phone and it allows me to surf the links like a computer.

    what the hell else could I need?!

    Maybe a thread to talk about cool Blackberry Apps?

    I've used the Storm and it just doesn't have the ease of use that the Iphone does imo. Apple is really good at keeping things simple.

    If the BB works for you, then that's great.

    I dont know what blackberry does, but probably about the same.

    as far as useful... well the fact it has GPS, so I dont need to buy one.
    and that GPS is used by other apps, like weather, resteraunt finding etc..
    I also have the chase bank app, so I can bank from my phone, and yes, I do.

    Yes, things like the banking could be done from a web page on the iPhone, but the app is degigned for the phone, so MUCH easier to navigate and use.

    I only had it a week, so about as much as I can comment,
