    Granted this is a long shot and so many people will have different answers but besides my banking App and weather app what are some good Apps for the 5?

    I would like a good texting app with smileys etc..

    Starbucks if you like their coffee.
    Downcast if you listen to Podcasts.

    iMessage is a good texting app with smileys.

    Hey there,

    If you like smileys just enable the emojis.
    setting > general > keyboard >keyboards >scroll down to emoji
    you'll get tonnes of emoticons that way .

    as for a cool app i really enjoy SONGZA (it streams music playlists)...all different playlists are found by different methods...mood. genre, popularity...etc..fave bands

    Did you bother to look in the iPhone and iPod touch Apps forum? There are a ton of threads like this.
