    I just went through my phone, and realized I have like 10 apps, and it kind of depressed me. I went through some of the top 2011 apps and added a few more, but still the cupboard is pretty empty.

    List some of the apps you use all the time (sometimes too often lol), cause I want to add many more apps.

    I use these the most by far:

    1. Facebook
    2. Tweetbot
    3. Tapatalk
    4. Words w/ friends/wordfued
    5. Score Mobile

    There are so many apps out there, would love some of your feedback.

    That's really about it for the non-games that are available without jail breaking. If I included games there'd be another 10 or so apps that I play all the time (I love you World of Goo). Always have something fun to do when I run into some free time.

    List Master -- allows you to make lists including, but not limited to checklists (Packing lists, Grocery lists, To Do's). Allows rudimentary file transfer through DropBox.

    Week Calendar -- greatly enhanced calendar application that uses the iPhone calendar database, so syncing with your calendar of choice (Google, etc.) still works. Coming from Palm PDAs (RIP), this doesn't come close to replacing DateBk3,4,5,6, but it helps.

    Downcast -- very feature-rich podcast app. No one thinks the iPhone Music app is meant for Podcasts, do they??? Don't get me started.

    IMDb and Netflix -- self-explanatory.

    Real Racing 2 -- I've never been big into these types of games on any platform, but this one pulled me in. I've gone thru "Career Mode" on "Easy", "Medium", and now set to "Hard". I think my screen is slightly indented under the accelerator pedal.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Apps are funny to me because I love downloading apps but my attention span for them is only minutes before I get bored and never use again
