    iPhone 5 will be my first iPhone and I'm wondering what some of you would consider are "must have" apps? Especially interested in free apps, but would love to hear any and all that would be considered essential. Thanks.

    DMB For Life! One of the best live acts touring today, if not the best. Not to mention they have one of the best drummers alive today.

    Hate to say it, but stand-alone Google Maps App is a priority for me... the minute it becomes available...

    Path is an amazing app, if you have friends on it. Also, Rdio is my choice for streaming music. Better than Spotify is you ask me.

    While hilarious, I personally prefer The Onion over Fox.

    Adding this thread to my reading list. I'm not a new iPhone owner (have owned every version), but I am curious to know what apps other people rely on most. A couple I will throw in as must-haves:

    - Twitter
    - Facebook
    - AP News
    - Engadget
    - Mac News
    - Wikipanion
    - IM+
    - eBay
    - Deliveries (for tracking that next crucial package ;p)
    - Pandora
    - FlightTrack
    - Trip Advisor
    - Comixology
    - Lose it! (for calorie counting)
    - App Advice
    - Enigmo

    Many, many more but these are some that I use most often...

    Wow, just goes to show how expansive the app store really is and how many different lifestyles it fits. I've had my 4 since 2010 and the only apps on your list I've used are twitter (everyday) and pandora (once or twice)

    If you email groups of people at once, Mailshot is a must. You create groups from your contacts within the app, then you simply type the name of the group in the email subject, voila, it emails them all. iOS should have this feature, to be honest.

    Yep! Hit my 13th 14th and 15th shows this summer in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Will go to the fall/winter shows in Charlottesville if they do it this year!

    How about you?
