    Hey guys;

    last week, I won a $500 iTunes Gift Certificate. I would like to put a lot of this towards apps that will increase the functionality of my iPhone; I am looking for great apps and games. I want things that are solid, not (for lack of a better word) crappy apps.

    So far, I have purchased:

    - Super Monkey Ball
    - Asphalt 4
    - Jaadu VNC
    - Appigo's Todo
    - Appigo's Notebook
    - Beejive IM

    Any other ideas? Price isn't really an option because they're technically free to me, and I love to support developers. Thanks!

    P.S. I've also purchased most of the apps in the top 100 that intere

    Galcon is a simple, but very addictive game. Especially on online multiplayer (4 player)

    Congrats on the gift certificate!

    Whoa, that's a lot to win, congrats. Spend wisely!

    I would suggest Ocarina ($1) and Real Soccer 09 ($10). Both great apps.

    Games can be fun but dont necessarily increase the functionality of your phone. If it was me, I would start downloading things like Spreadsheet, Things, File apps like Mobile Studio, Datacase, etc. Project apps, depending upon your line of work, Shopping App, etc.
    I have one small screen of apps, but I try to only download others that will try to make my phone as functional as something like a Blackberry or Treo, but allow me to keep the iPhone, great screen and great media capability!

    It would be hard to spend that much to make your phone more functional. I would buy beejive. Other than that buy what you want but it costs around $100 to get anything you could ever need.

    i loaded punch o meter ($1) today. you can send a punch to a friend as a text message and also get high scores posted on their website...my new favorite app.

    Trace is free and kept me busy for a while. simple graphics but fun.

    koi pond ($1) is cool too.

    I would get an RSS feed for news. I recommend Newsstand, which works awesome for me. Then get a task program like Smart Time. Bill Minder is a nice app for tracking your bills. Track your weight with Weight Bot. Get a password management program to store your website passwords, credit cards, pin numbers, etc. Perhaps get some language apps to learn other languages.

    Outside of gaming, what are your interests?

    Do you travel? Into music? Fitness? Sports? Food? Wine? Art?
