    Yeah, well.. I got some extra money left and I have decided to use it for apps buying.. (for iPod Touch).
    Well, all I need you guys to do is to tell me about the apps you like the most..
    It could be games or anything else which could pass my time =]
    I don't really care if they are paid or free apps, just tell me which apps you like the most =]

    Pocket Informant - task and event manager, syncs to free online services (far better than Apple's inbuilt calendar.

    Picture Safe - Lock pics, and organize pics into folders and the pic order.

    Groups - put contacts into groups

    Beejive IM - great IM app

    myVideos - download YouTube to HD, and bids from other sites (including ones of interest to males). Also locks and hides folders of vids.

    Momo - locked notes app, with tags, and full search. Syncs to online free service.

    Stanza - best ebook reader imo

    AppSniper - keeps track of new and discounted apps.

    Encyclopedia - most of the wikipedia text on HD.

    Oxford Deluxe - best dictionary/thesaurus app

    Galcon - online strategy game, can be fast paced.

    Bodybook - great workout log app with graphs of improvements.

    Readdledocs - download email attachment docs, online docs, and docs from iDisk.

    Assasin's Creed - Best action game imo

    Uniwar - online turn based war strategy game.

    Zenonia - best rpg imo

    BBC World - download BBC articles to hardrive for offline reading later. I download in the morning while I'm taking a shower.

    Sportacular - Sports news and updates.

    Favorite Apps

    I'd highly recommend "Peggle" it's an incredibly addictive game with a great sense of humor that you can play again and again... lots of fun.
    Also, "ShakeIt Photo" which simulates Polaroid photography for the IPhone camera... it's not just a cute Polaroid frame and noise, though... it actually simulates the oversaturation of colors that old Polaroid cameras have... the results are very cool.

    Looking forward to it too!

    Someone mentioned NFS. I hope the OP didn't buy it yet, as Sunday night, it went down to $6.99 according to Pandorabox.

    To hijack this thread. Know any app that syncs facebook birthdays to the iphone? ibirthday does not work on mine.

    My recommended best app is twinkle which you can twitter and facebook updates at the same time.

    To further take this thread on a tangent, I've added birthdays in the address book, but they don't show up in my calendar. I've got MobileMe, and I've enabled birthdays to show up on the calendar from the web MobileMe site, and they show up there, but not on my iPhone calendar. Wonder if I missed a step somewhere.

    I suppose if one has a lot of people with birthdays on Facebook, it would save loads of time if the birthdays could be synced via an app.
