    List your 5 favorite Non-Game apps . . . mine, in no particular order:
    Instapaper: I can’t live without it!
    Easy Note: best To-Do list I’ve found.
    IKoyomi2: love the way I can show 2 months at a time, with notes.
    Tie USA Today/NY Times: because off-line newspapers are great.
    WiFiTrack: finds networks at lunchtime.
    If this was baseball season, I’d have to add MLB At Bat.
    Honorable mention: Awesome Note, Key Ring, AppShopper.

    Twitter - Just works for everything I need, best free Twitter app by a long shot
    Hipstamatic - Cool little camera toy, makes for some pretty pictures
    Tumblr - I'm addicted to tumblr and this is the best way to read the feed on the go
    BBC News - For free this app is spectacular, especially with news24 over wifi. Beautiful.
    Remote - I like being able to control my music from a distance

    An honorable mention to the Inception App. It is barely a game and is wonderful to just pop on for a while.

    I noticed whilst writing this; I have only Inception (which I mentioned is barely a game) on my phone, no real games at all...
