    I know you have probably heard this over 1000 times, but I just bought the Iphone and was wondering what I should do now. Apps, Music and so on, your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Depends on your needs.

    Are you on Twitter,Facebook,Skype
    Will you need to do office work on the go? iWork is available
    Find near me is pretty cool
    Internet radio app like Pandora
    New weather app
    UrbanSpoon the rest is up to you make it your own

    Music is a preference. I can say put Jazz but if you don't like Jazz why bother.

    Hit the app store and start with the top 25 free apps and work your way down. :) And of course, Angry Birds and Frisbee. But it really depends on what games you like to play.

    For stock phones, these are the ones I recommend to everyone--

    AroundMe
    Point Inside (great locator app for finding your way around airports and malls; excellent for travel)
    Twitter and Facebook--if you use those, because their mobile web experience pretty much sucks
    Camera+ for pictures
    SoundHound
    Something for quickly transferring photos from the phone to the computer (or vice versa) without cables--I use Photo Transfer App & recommend it, but there are others.

    Most of these are free or cheap, all are surprisingly useful.

    I also wouldn't be without Navigon, Notebooks for iPhone (and the iPad version), and OmniFocus, but those are neither free nor cheap, so you have to really need them and plan to use them regularly for them to be worthwhile. They're among the most used apps on my phone and iPad though!

    Yelp is a must have. Soundhound, flixster, google traslate, and orgeon trail are all great as well, oh and also get geo defense (and swam) and 7 words.
