What is your favorite free app (or app that used to be free) in the app store?

Mine is: Tunnels (it used to be free!)

Tunnels is one of the best apps I have including paid apps. I am addicted to it!

Shazam for its amazing ability to know what ANYTHING i am playing is
You Note for being a full featured notes app
WeatherBug
FLIPBOOK (too much fun - it distracts me from everything else) OOPS, but that ones not free..they have a free version out soon though

Gotta be Twinkle, I just can't get over how much better it makes Twitter.

Graffitio. Deffinitely.

Graffitio is highly addictive; being able to post invisible messages everywhere you go that other iPhone users can read later is freaking awesome.

Palringo = Messenger

Best free app for me. Able to link all my MSN, AIM, googleTalk accounts together so that i can chat with my friends when I'm on the road. Great App so far. Will be better if it is able to continue monitoring my conversations when I'm out of the ApP. Waiting for new updates to allow that.

I've tried Palringo, but it was crashing everytime I opened it. So, I ended up deleting it. I should redownload it now that there is an update.

For me it is a three way tie between:

Facebook
Box Office (now removed from the App Store)
iTunes Remote

This new app makes Facebook a little easier to use; while Box Office makes finding movie times, reviews, and trailers unbelievably easy; and the iTunes Remote was one feature that I wished was included with the iPhone and iPod touch from the first place.

Shazam is my favorite free non-game app. It comes in handy almost everyday!

Zenbe - Great list making app, even if you don't use the online and syncing abilities.

Twinkle - Twitter for the Gods.

YPMobile - When you gotta have flowers to her door this afternoon.

Showtimes - My BoxOffice replacement.

Tris FTW. By far my favourite app from the good old days of jailbroken iPod's, and it was finally released yesterday on the App store. The only other free app that comes close is Cube Runner, which is very good in it's own right.

I'd really like to say Facebook just because I live on it but it's lacking some important features. For example, Notifications. God, you can't even add a friend. It will be good when they get the next update in.

My favorite APPS:
MySpace
MobileChat
Pandora
iGold - simple, but very useful for me.
Bloomberg - Needs some minor updates but very useful!

Wish I could find an APP to monitor the price of oil!

Now that it's back on, an obvious answer:

Box Office aka Now Playing

I'm not sure if Parlingo will be able to add that functionality. The iPhone has a strict limit of only running one app at a time. So even if the Parlingo programmers wanted to add that functionality (which I imagine they do) they probably won't be able to. :(

Once Apple finishes their Push Notification service, in September, it'll be able to do that.

For me it's Aurora Feint.

Any app can run in the background with the help of insomina. You need a JB phone.

I just tried this app, and I have to agree, it's a great idea.

I can think of numerous fun--and useful--functions it can serve for me. I've been adding walls in places I go (major places at least--no need to create clutter unless I have a comment to post) to get the local ball rolling.

But my FAVORITE? Probably Pandora Radio. Who needs FM?

Shazam is pretty amazing! It cuts through loud background noise and people talking and still has a very high accuracy rate! Even when I shortened the scan time to 10 seconds.
