    BSD Subsystem: It is required to run any app.
    Summerboard: Customize your iPhone!!
    Make it Mine (MIM): Set your own fake carrier name!
    Gemlogic: Bejeweled with a twist, awesome game
    iSolitaire: 'nough said
    Light: Turns your iPhone into a flashlight
    LightsOff: Game that tests your logic
    Pumped: Log in your car's gas consumption and see whats your gas mileage
    Converter: Converts between many different units (example: kilometer to mile)

    This are the ones in my opinion that are a must have to pass through boredom times and through any general situation.

    Edit - This are the essential applications for me, but I have way more than the ones listed here.

    Well I do love posting lists, so here is mine. And it is the difinitive iPhone app collection. Hands Down

    • AppTapp (Given)
    • Fring (IM that actually works & VOIP)
    • BossPrefs (Handy settings plus access to hidden apps)
      [*]SummerBoard
      [*]HWInfo (Tell you EVERYTHING)
      [*]Make It Mine (Set alternate carrier name)
      [*]Poof (Hide apps from springboard)​
    • Touchpad Pro (Use phone as trackapd for your Mac!)
    • Converter (Pretty self-explanatory... it's prety good)
    • PhotoBoard (Full touch manipulation for your photos)
    • Sketches (...Paint for iPhone)
    • Funiculus (Guitar tuner)
    • weDict (Dictionary)
    • SuperPong (Like Brick on old iPods)
    • Tris (Tetris)
    • iSolitaire (Funnily enough, Solitaire)
    • Pianist (Piano emulator)
    • PocketGuitar (Guitar emulator)
    • Pool (Billiards:) )
    • Labyrinth (Good for showing off accelerometer)
    • TapTap Revolution (Best game ever - kinda like Guitar Hero)
    • Backgammon (funnily enough, backgammon)


      Well, there it is.
      You may have noticed no Customize... I like to do modding myself over SSH



      Doobs


      PS - kinda unrelated - anyone noticed that "Featured" in AppTapp actually shows featured apps not just a list of bugs?

    I use VNC and iPhone Remote A LOT when I'm not at home. I love being able to access all of my videos (in combination with component cables) at a friend's house on a big screen.
