    And why?

    Here's mine.

    Measures (a currency, weights and measures tool) - I travel a lot for work so this is invaluable when I'm outside the country. Cost: .99

    Gamecenter - This one is brand spankin new but I'm a big video game dork and I've been on this one daily since I downloaded it. Game specs, cheats, game controls (great idea!), news, reviews... blah blah blah. Cost: Free

    iEmoji (emoticon app) - I downloaded this one about a month ago and love it. The emoticon library is great. Cost: .99

    Weather - Another daily use app so I know how to dress. Cost: iPhone stock app

    Facebook - Almost daily I'm embarrassed to say. Cost: Free

    For me, Remember The Milk is an integral part of my daily life. My memory is appalling, and I always used to forget stuff, both in personal and work life. Since I started using this service a couple of years back (before the iPhone app existed), it's totally turned things around, and I'm actually pretty productive now. My job is very task orientated and having a good GTD system has really worked for me. The iPhone app is superb and simply makes it even easier to quickly jot stuff down as it occurs to me. There's also now a plugin for Google QSB on the mac for quickly firing stuff off to my lists when I'm at my computer.

    Other apps I use on a daily basis (other than the obvious Safari, Email etc.) are Tweetie, Facebook, Newsstand (Google Reader RSS app) for obvious reasons. Documents to Go for doc/spreadsheet editing, DropBox for accessing files from the cloud (synced to my documents folder on my mac), FFM 09/10 (fantasy football management), Strands (for logging my runs and bike rides), and lastly Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for my nightly reading fix :)

    You don't need the older version. The steps listed work with whatever the current version is on the App Store.

    Edit: I forgot to answer the OP :p
