    Rybold. Can I recommend you use the 1st post to update? that way it's much more accessible to read. Much easier than trudging through potentially a long thread :)

    You'll be having fun sorting out the >600 odd Apps i'd imagine.. here's to crowd sourcing !

    Good idea. I'll do that. I'm hoping that people are not going to list every single app. I have an iPhone and one of my friends is contemplating getting one but doesn't know if she will use it. So, I'm trying to create a list of what the iPhone does.

    Say you are driving your co-worker home from the bar, because they are too drunk to drive. While in route said co-worker passes out. You can steal their ID to look up their address and use google maps to find their house.

    This happened to me last night, and I was happy to have my iphone.
