    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!

    If you haven't purchased Apple's poker app, i would highly suggest that.

    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 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.
