What Will Perfect My Life: Recommended Apps for My New Iphone

So, I got an iPhone. What apps do you love? What apps do you use constantly? I am compiling a list of things to look into when I have time to download them and am not in the complete boonies. I am assuming that once I have downloaded said recommended apps, my life will become perfect.

Right? Right?!

    Lots of great recommendations already (and some I need to check out myself).

    When I was still into Twitter I used Tweetie (although Jason’s rec of TweetDeck may be better if you’re still on Facebook).

    I use Flixster (and sometimes Fandango) to see what movies are playing and to purchase tickets. IMDb has also recently released a new (free) app, but I haven’t used it much yet.

    I have one called “AroundMe” that’s useful when I’m in an unfamiliar city. It uses your phone’s GPS to identify nearby restaurants or shops or what-have-you. I also have one called “RepairPal” that I’ve not needed to use yet (luckily), but it will supposedly help you find a nearby repair shop, etc. when your car breaks down. If I had AAA I suppose I wouldn’t need this.

    Get Amazon.com’s store app if you buy a lot of stuff there (and I bet you do). You can look things up, add things to your wish list, and (of course) make impulse purchases.

    Since you have a WordPress blog, you might want to get the WordPress app. It’s very well done; you can make new posts or edit previously published ones, check comments, etc.

    Games: I like “Fieldrunners”, “RastaMonkey”, “Rolando”, and “Canabalt”. I have definitely gotten my money’s worth out of “Fieldrunners” and “Canabalt”. Great time sinks.

    Oh, and “CatPaint” is a LIFE CHANGER.

    Thanks, Lyle.

    And Lyle, I am scared to ask what CatPaint is. . .

    Currently playing with the initial apps I downloaded, and haven’t gotten bored with those yet, so can’t wait to see what all of these do. Only have so much time, though!

    And I think Todd is getting jealous of my love affair with my iPhone.
