    I use:
    http://lottoapp.com/#_home for checking lottery results
    http://moviesapp.com/#_moviesapp to find local theaters and movies
    http://www.google.com/m#search for looking up things on Google
    http://www.springlets.com/phone/searches/wikipedia.html for looking up things on Wikipedia
    http://iphone.jiwire.com/query.html for finding nearby WiFi hotsopts
    http://scicalc.belfry.com for a scientific calculator
    http://converter.aapl.org.uk/converter.php for converting several types of units
    I'm evaluating https://talk68.beejive.com/ajax/ which is an Instant Messenger
    I also regularly use a link to my Credit Union

    There are hundreds of games available. You can easily look for them and use the ones you are interested in. The only game I use regularly is http://www.enjoysudoku.com/play.html

    Right from the Apple iPhone site, you can find links to some great ones.

    My current favorite is Podcaster.

    Would love to find a chess tactics one.

    Must get a local app from the SDK for password manager soon though. That, and an external speaker are the only two things keeping the Touch from being my perfect device. (Bluetooth would be nice too :)

    I agree with above, beejive is an excellent AIM app.

    I also use facebook (http://iphone.facebook.com), IMDB, macrumors, and SportsTap.

    I have an idea! Why don't you just JAILBREAK IT?

    (meebo.com is a nice IM client, though!)

    In all honesty, I have no reason to Jailbreak. I did and I went back to the official firmware. Since you have to be on WiFi anyway, you might as well just use Webapps.

    if your new here, two things
    1. Jailbreak it
    2. Dont call it an iTouch, touch is cool

    my $.02

    As for webapps, unless you live in the wondrous land of total wi-fi coverage, they arent much good, but they are nice.

    What do you mean, 'have to be on wifi'? Part of the reason I jailbroke my iPod in the first place is because there are no wifi spots here in Tokyo and without wifi my Touch was an overpriced iPod - once I jb'd it, it was like a breath of fresh air. Tons of apps, none of which require wifi. Jailbreaking turned my overpriced iPod into a highly useful PDA (which happens to have a pretty cool iPod app) ... ;)

    I like http://www.streamingscores.com to check my sports.
    I check it everynight on my thing-I-bought-that-states-on-its-box-:apple:-iPod-touch. That should cover it too, or is it to, or maybe two?
    Oh brother.
