Your strongest recommendation

What is the one app you think everyone else should hear about?

Since games are such a huge chuck of the app market and I am more curious about other apps feel welcome to mention a game but please also pick a non-game app you love.

Mine would be Stanza. I have tried just about every ereader app and while most are fine Stanza blows away the competition for me. The ease of adding in your own .epub or other files (like stories I converted to epub from online [i.e. fanfictions ]) and the well executed features such as smart zoom text resizing and sliding the middle to change brightness come together to make an iPod touch a great reading device.

The Kindle 3 has since replaced Stanza as my go to reader because I fell in love with the vivid eink display, but Stanza is still something anyone interested in using their iPhone/iPod as an ereader should check out especially if you want to add your own files.

Enough about my tip, what is your gem?

Week Calendar - quick loading, great customization, and most definitely the best weekview calendar out there!

MomoNote - Awesome Note is great, but syncing to Google Docs or Evernote produced triplicates and quadruplicates of the same note. MomoNote has accurate syncing, and it has the 2nd best interface imo.

Bluefire Reader - I prefer Stanza, and I'd love to know if it's possible to convert ePub DRM to a Stanza format.

Due - fast loading, quick reminder entry, snooze, and deferral, well it's all just fast and simple.

Bloom - when I'm severely lacking in sleep, and stressed right out, this app helps me calm down and focus a bit more while just taking a rest (not a nap, I'd never trust myself to get back up when I needed to).

Fluent News - Some might complain of the subscription cost, but it's a superb aggregated news source, and at just a dollar a month, I'm not complaining.

TIME mobile - Just cause I enjoy Time articles.

Alarm Clock Pro - Playlist support, that's pretty much all I need in an alarm clock app.

Outliner - lists, brainstorming, online back up and sharing.

1Password - Back up all important logins, passwords, and credit card info to my DropBox. Quite secure with the 2nd master code being as damned complicated as you wish it to be.
