    While we all have 5-9 pages of apps, we have our daily regulars. What is yours?

    I wake up in the morning and I check my Mail using the default mail app. Then check weather using Weatherbug Elite Before leaving for work i sync my to do's with Things Desktop.

    Before work starts I browse my RSS feeds and Twitter/facebook updates ueing Tweetie/ facebook app and Byline.

    During my lunch, and dinner I typically read ebooks using Amazon Kindle, or Stanza.

    At night i usually need to have a .pdf or document i need to show somebody at work, so i send it to the iPhone using File Magnet.

    Regular apps
    file magnet
    weatherbug
    things
    stanza
    facebook
    tweetie
    things
    byline

    and some semi regulars
    wikipanion
    istat
    mint.com

    It took me a little while to finally give in to buying things (along with the mac client). But the productivity that i have gained was definitely worth the small amount it costed. such a beautiful app/experiance

    [app]Pocket Informant[/app] for my schedules. I have a lot of irregular recurring lessons I teach, the time bars in month view are helpful. The odd task with a deadline shows up on that day, so while I've tried some great to do apps, I didn't open them often enough to keep on top of bills to pay and other stuff with deadlines. It all backs up online, so if I ever have to restore or I lose my iPhone, I don't lose this data (backing up via iTunes on my old PC takes far too long).

    [app]Safari[/app] to check my favorite forums and research.

    [app]Instapaper[/app] to save articles for later reference.

    [app]Fluent News[/app] to get my news from multiple sources. It can be read later offline.

    [app]Wisdom[/app] English-Japanese dictionary for everyday life here in Japan as well as teaching lessons.

    [app]Uniwar[/app] - an online turn based multiplayer war game.

    [app]Instaviz[/app] is the most versatile mindmapping, flow chart app I've tried yet. A learning curve to use, but it's not limited to just mother to child nodes. Any node can be connected to any other node, it's great for problem solving.

    [app]Outliner[/app] makes a great listkeeper, task manager (for tasks with no due date), project manager, and brainstormer. The notes section under each entry and sync to online account make it all the better.

    [app]Touch Goal[/app] quickly records and tracks habits.

    [app]Tweetie[/app]

    My regulars are:

    - Facebook
    - The Weather Channel
    - Mail (along side with PushGmail)
    - Safari
    - Checkbook (when I buy stuff, duh lol)
    - Sportacular (for baseball & football games, push ftw)
    - Google Reader (I know it's just a link and not an app, but I find it more useful than other RSS readers because I can add subscriptions from the computer and view them on my phone)

    And of course Messages and Phone if you wanna count those too.

    Beejive: Using IM is so much more convenient than using SMS. I love always being connected.

    Twitbird Pro: Default twitter Client for now (thinking of purchasing a better client, but waiting on the update before I make any hasty decisions. By the way, if anyone knows of a twitter client that auto-refreshes and has badges on the app icon that reflects new tweets, please let me know. )

    Pocketmoney: My virtual checkbook and budget. I use this every single day!

    Istudiez Pro: To keep track of my grad school assignments.

    Facebook

    Iwore

    Photogene: I love editing photos.

    Yelp: So helpful when looking for a new place to eat in the city!

    The Weather Channel


    Mail and Messages

    AP Mobile

    Appbox Pro: Just purchased this. It seems to be full of useful tools such as a tip calculator, translator, unit converter, etc...)

    Bargain Bin: I love app sales!

    FML: I need to laugh daily. :D

    I have a few:

    Police Scan
    Emergency Radio
    XM-Sirius Radio
    Fizz Weather
    TWC Max
    iStat

    Out of 180 apps, these are the only ones I use dailey. The rest I am thinking of just deleting from iTunes such as ToDo, Things and OmniFocus and many others. I just bought them because they sounded cool but I haven't used them past the first day or two. Oh, and Navigon and TomTom as well as IGO and G-Map and a few other GPS apps are no longer on my phone. Went back to my Garmin.
