    I'm going to be moving from an ipod touch to the iphone soon. I have several apps but find myself bored with the ipod sometimes and want to shake it up a bit. What are your top 5 apps that you have on your iphone now?

    Aside from the Facebook, iPod Music, Messages, Mail and Safari apps, these are six of my personal favorite and often used:

    -Chess With Friends (it's like my crack cocaine)

    -Dropbox (free cloud storage and great for syncing documents on your phone, iPad, and Mac)

    -Flashlight (have your pick, there's a million free ones)

    -Runmeter (great app if you're a runner or like to walk and track your progress)

    -Shazam!!! :)(needs no freakin' introduction!):)

    -Grindr (if you're not a gay male looking for nearby hookup, this ain't for you)


    Two others that I consider must-haves are Instagram and Flixster. Both free in the Appstore.

    LOL. The straight version of that is Blendr. Although I'm sure the success ratio is very different. Guys on Grindr are all business. ;)

    -Whatsapp: use it all the time for international texting.
    -Splashtop: nice VNC app that lest me manage my at home computer from uni.
    -Skype: self explanatory.
    -Dictionary: I like new words :)
    -Moxier Wallet: keeps all my passwords, account info, etc handy and safe
    -ShopShop: best shopping list app I've tried yet. remembers everything you buy so its east to add again, tap items to cross them off, shake to remove them.

    1. Music
    2. Safari
    3. iStayFit
    4. OmniFocus
    5. Maps

    The built-in apps don't get shout-outs enough. I think that if you could view apps by most frequently used, these would be my top 5.

    LOL..... I have a gay friend who has that app. I laughed when he told me that it measures the distance as to how close in proximity someone is to you for some serious hookup. LOL.... that is some serious app. And your right, I imagine the success rate would be less for those that have "Blendr". How many women would even have that as their top 5 app. (LOL). Hilarious!

    ----------

    LOL.... Your funny. I heard about app # 6. When my friend was showing me that app., he was texting to someone in Florida. What a coincidence if it were you. This is all in humor.
