    With a bunch of new iOS users, I'm sure they'd love a jump start on what's best in the broad App Store.

    You can just go on safari and go to the mobile site. :rolleyes: Stair dismount is a good free game. Facebook, twitter, and windows live messenger. :p Evernote is a nice app to have.

    I'm mainly a browser person (boring, I know), but Instapaper and Dropbox are two of my favorites. I doubt you can get a definitive top ten considering the amount of apps in the store and people's different preferences.

    I am t-pain wuld be amazing once they give us video capability and fix the mic playback problem (for 4th gen iPod touch) other than that I don't like the fact that if you do something while it is downloading a song for the app the song is blank. But with the cam a great buy for when music videos r allowed for iPod touch 4g. And wait around to see if it becomes $.99 anytime soon cuz it does every once in a while

    I want one that will let me turn my iPod Touch into a voice recorder so I can record my lectures and upload them to my laptop before editing them and turning them into MP3's.

    Might be better if people list what all the application entails.

    AppBox Pro

    My most useful App is AppBox Pro There are a total of 31 applications, stashed in this meta-app. Believe me it is one of the best .99¢ you will ever spend. Below is a screen shot of page one, there is two pages. You also have a choice of icons as well.

    I have always thought it is just common courtesy to include a hot link to any thing i refer to on the net.:)

    Well, I'm a gamer so I definitely have Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Solomons Keep. I've also got Ace Budget for personal finance and NYCmate for a subway map. Still exploring others.

    Have looked for some of the apps listed above - seems a number of them aren't available here. In any case, not a top ten below, but perhaps some that are of use:

    Shazam - free song recognition app. [Using microphone.] Also provides additional information and links relating to the songs you find. Have used it enough times to identify relatively obscure music - even at a distance - to say that it is essential.

    Tunein Radio - largest international directory of stations that I've been able to use. International blocking introduced by one US company a few months ago meant my own access to some of my favoured news / sports stations was removed, but it shouldn't be an issue for anyone in the US. Also allows recording and playback of previous shows depending on the station.

    eBuddy Pro - instant messenger app. I find it has better functionality than the windows live app, which is the only other one I would consider using. Some may prefer Beejive. - free. Watch streams on Works surprisingly well, and in my case, often better than when using a computer. Broadcast function is apparently forthcoming for the new iPod Touch in the next update.

    NHL Ice Time - entirely dependent on level of interest, of course, but this allows me to watch highlights and listen to games that might otherwise be blocked via standard radio apps. Waiting for new release.

    Picture Safe - manage locked photo albums and videos [with additional bought update].

    Worms - Classic game. Disturbingly addictive.
