    Default I-Phone

    Okay, so I finally gave in and got an I-Phone. It was actually fairly cheap w/all the extras I got (2 car chargers, an extra wall charger, Otter box, and a holder). So here's my question for all you I-Phone users: when I download an app, say the It's Always Sunny In Philapelphia app, does it use my data plan mintues each time I use it? I have WiFi access at work, so I'll mainly use it then-it's not like I'm working in my field thinking, "Hey, I wonder if I have an email?" Any other app recommendations? I've heard Pandora and AroundYou/AroundMe are good apps.

    I've had an iPhone for almost two years and have tried a shit load of apps.


    Here are some of the best I still use all the time:


    Around Me

    IMDb - Internet Movie Database. So awesome. Better than the website.

    USA Today

    AP Mobile - The Associated Press app. Awesome for news.

    Sportacular Pro - scores update extremely fast, has fast push notifications

    ESPN Radio

    Shazaam - Freaking amazing app

    Flight Track Pro - If you fly a lot you gotta have this.

    AppBox Pro - Utility app with flashlight, wallet, shit like that. Love it.




    Then there's things like the eBay app, craigslist, paypal, etc. that are very good. Use them quite a bit.


    I think I've tried every sports app there is as far as needing scores, standings, etc. Sportacular offers the most I think and scores (especially football scores) update quicker on this than any others. Very fast plus there are a ton of other features on it. It's a great app.

    Yes but only if you are using your 3G data plan at the time. If your using Wi-Fi for downloading/surfing, then it wont chew into your data usage. If you have unlimited data, then surf and download all you want. But if you have a data cap, say 150mb, then I would download and surf as little as possible because some of those apps and sites can use up that much in just one visit or use.

    Personally though, I would use wifi anytime you are downloading an app or surfing on sufari only becuase Wifi is consistently faster over 3G. I know it defeats having your data plan but using wifi for everything doesnt cost you a dime. Just my 2 cents.

    I have the iPhone 3GS - absolutely adore it.

    Some of the best apps I've downloaded:
    - INTRIX Traffic - provides up to the minute traffic overviews of whatever area you're in...if you're a commuter like me - this thing is a necessity!!
    - Facebook - I actually like using this version better than the 'real' version
    - TyroTuner - tunes your guitar
    - Google Earth - again, better than the PC version

    From what I understand - these all need to use data plans to work properly. But it's not that massive....I have up to 1GB per month - and rarely use more than 500MB (that with using it primarily as my work email phone / downloading the occasional song / app and surfing the web while taking care of some 'business'
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    Urban spoon is a good app. And MLB at bat is a must for any baseball fan. And why didnt you get the unlimited data plan? They'll tell you they dont offer it so you gotta birch tO get it.

    when I download an app, say the It's Always Sunny In Philapelphia app, does it use my data plan mintues each time I use it? I have WiFi access at work, so I'll mainly use it then
    If you're on WIFI the data uses that connection so you won't be using your data plan. The phone is built so it defaults to wifi any time it has the connection. The thing you need to be careful of is apps that do any kind of background data updates (like a weather app). The app will attempt to connect and pull data. If there is no wifi when the app needs a connection, it will use the 3G and get the data it wants.

    Usually this isn't a big deal because the data it downloads is very small and you probably won't even run into problems. However, don't attempt to watch any videos on 3G, this will chew through data quickly.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Agreed. I've used that in a crowded bar/rest. several times and it picks up the tunes.
