    I, along with probably at least a few others on here, are new to iPhone. What free (or pay too I guess) apps do you veterans consider must haves?

    For other new users, I've found these useful apps:

    Facebook
    Flashlight.
    ATT mywireless
    Remote
    Speedtest.net

    and probably weather eye as the regular weather app is garbage..

    Bento
    Shazam
    Grocery IQ
    1Password

    I've got a few more, but these are the ones I use the most.

    [app]Now Playing[/app] is a must!

    I agree with Shazam and Grocery IQ. I use the latter much more than I thought I would.

    Twitterrific is the best one but it is $4.99. Twitterfon is free and Twitterena is .99. They are good, just not as colorful and dont make tweet noises...lol

    ebay is cool too if you use it like i do. Craigsphone is free too, which is Craigslist.

    Darn. Just got my first iPhone yesterday and was looking forward to downloading 1Password for it for free -- it looks like it is not free anymore. I must have missed a window or something. I am a 1Password desktop user, but I think even in that case you have to shell out the $4.99.
