There’s an App For, what?

posted in: Personal, Tech | 3

So, given the way the new iPhone 3g S release brought in a couple of features I had always thought were lacking in the iPhone (copy/paste chiefly), and happened to coincide with both my birthday this weekend and our AT&T cell phone contract being up for renewal, and upgraded equipments, I couldn’t help but assume that getting an iPhone was simply fate!

So, today my iPhone was delivered. It’s been activated, and I’ve downloaded a couple of apps that I already knew I’d be grabbing, like Evernote, Tweetdeck, Google Mobile App, Facebook and Tripit.

What else should I be downloading? What free apps do I need to try out, what pay apps do you find were well worth the price? All suggestions welcome!

    Free apps: Kindle for iPhone, Phoneflix (if you subscribe to Netflix), Google Earth, icanhazcheezburger, Nozbe (if you have a Nozbe.com account), A Free Level, Flashlight.

    Paid apps: Trism (if you're into Bejeweled on slanted steroids). Photobuddy (for photobugs that need an exposure/DoF calculator for shooting in manual).

    Novelty stuff you may want to try and then delete: iFu, Ustream (this thing is unbelievably laggy, even on wifi), Yowza.

    I also recommend jailbreaking it when you feel up to it. Installing themes and skins is worth the effort.
