Were gonna try and keep this thread continually going. Just list your top 5 favorite apps at the moment. You can make a new post as often as you like if your favorites change.

Here are mine:

1 - Jailbreaker (So addicting!)

2 - i.TV (love to know whats on and the favorites section tells me if any of my fav shows are on without having to browse thru the guide)

3 - Redbox (nice that I can reserve a movie during the day then go pick it up at night)

4 - Chase (deposit checks on my phone!!!)

5 - Wordflick (love my word games!)

I don't have a lot of apps but I prefer to pay for them because, I think, they are more reliable. I also can't pick my top five so I have my top 6...One more won't hurt.

1.Skype (my boyfriend recently moved to vietnam and I needed some other way of communicating with him cause my telephone bill this month was 340euros!
2.Twitter (I use it for work too)
3.Career Test (neat personality and career test)
4.iMovie
5.Angry birds just for stupid fun
6. Howcast app (I really like this app cause I use it when I'm cooking or at a friends party and want to know how to make a cocktail or something)

That howcast app looks pretty cool. Does it have pretty much anything you can think of on there?

1. Transitmaps - now I don't need to carry around subway and bus maps :)
2. Pandora, I listen to it all the time at work
3. MenuPages - best way to find restaurants in big US cities!
4. Grocery IQ, so my fiancee & I can coordinate shopping trips
5. I feel sort of bad plugging my own, but I use it more than any other app on my iPhone: FlashCards++ (to study flash cards on the go)

Tried that! It's a sweet app, but $4 is a little spendy. You think prices will drop ever? Cuz like you said, I would use it to study all the time!:D

Evernote, iXpenseit, Lose It, Camera+, and Twitter.

As silly as it sounds, apps that have updated themselves to take advantage of the retina display are more enjoyable than those that haven't.

Favourite apps:
  1. Beejive IM
  2. Twitter
  3. Sleep Cycle
  4. AccuWeather
  5. My Account (by Rogers)

I love Beejive IM & twitter. Together they meet the needs of my social life. Sleep Cycle is technically the app I use the most (as it's on while I sleep), it's a great app. AccuWheather is a nice simple replacement for the default weather app, as I just want to know what to wear before going outside. And My Account is great for keeping track of my plan usage (minutes, data, text, etc).

Favourite apps for school:
  1. iStudiez Pro
  2. Awesome Note
  3. Cleartune
  4. Karajan

iStudiez Pro is great for keeping track of class times and assignments. Awesome Note is awesome for taking notes. Cleartune is the best tuner I've ever used (very useful, as I'm a music major). Karajan was my first paid app (and one of my oldest apps that I still use), it's great for ear training (musicianship).

Favourite games:
  1. CoD:WaW:Zombies
  2. Miner Disturbance
  3. Solitaire 3D
  4. JellyCar (1 & 2)
  5. Amateur Sugeon

I don't play too many games, but those are my favourite.
