    I know there is a sticky to discuss apps that specifically support the IP4, but I'm curious as to know what free apps out there are a must. With thousands of apps in the app store and the top 50 free mostly games, I want to know what others determine "must downloads", and why?

    I miss my JB apps...FWIW

    Thanks in advance!

    for productive use:
    urbanspoon - finds great restaurants...lived in columbus for years and it picks ones I never knew of
    chase bank - handy for keeping an eye on Chase :rolleyes:
    balance - handy mobile checkbook, great for keeping track of expenses a certain bank (cough) takes days to post/posts in incorrect order
    flixter - linked reviews to rotten tomatoes now, and you can buy tickets
    chipotle - duh
    red laser (amazing) - finds deals on pretty much anything with a UPC, and handy links to online ordering too
    myWireless - great to monitor data/min. usage, pay bill as well

    for fun:
    TALKING CARL...halarious :D...says anything you say, and you can poke him haha. my little nephew loves it
    facebook - stalking is mobile...yesssss
    backdrops - amazing pics from interfacelift.com, best background app IMO
    iFart - halarious named farts...you can even record your own (gross). also you can set a fart, leave the phone, and the next person who touches it activates the sensor and it goes off. dont this many times :)

    Their* also, how many times have you actually used that feature with more then 1 device? A couple of times? If that? Anyway, why don't you just enjoy your evo and stop being immature ?
