    Couldn't find any "essential" lists on here through MRoogle outside of iPhone Hacks, sooo..

    Name your essential app for each category:

    1. Free Game app
    2. Paid Game app
    3. Free/Paid Navigation
    4. Free/Paid Event/Schedule app
    5. Free/Paid Music/Video (listening to) app
    6. Free/Paid Social app (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
    7. Free/Paid Sports app
    8. Free/Paid Shopping app
    9. Free/Paid Management-type app (money management, file management, etc.)
    10. Free/Paid News app

    BONUS: Name any three other apps or additional apps that may not top one of the categories, but you use or rely on just as much.

    My list:
    1. Paper Toss
    2. Real Racing
    3. Maps (I haven't really looked for any other)
    4. iCal
    5. Last.FM
    6. Tumblr
    7. Sportacular
    8. shopkick
    9. Mint
    10. Mashable!

    BONUS: MobileRSS for my Google Reader, Netflix despite how flaky it can be at times, and WolframAlpha. I don't use Wolfram that often, but I rely on it a lot when I want some specific info about something that a Google/Wiki search would take too long for.

    Anyone else?

    Ah, I've never heard of Cube Runner, but it definitely looks like a game I'm gonna play now. I used to play some game called Steve Young or something in elem. school similar to this. You were just a football player running "trying to avoid being sacked".

    And have you used Evernote? If you have, how is it compared to SimpleTask?

    1. I don't really use any free games. Most try to get you to spend money in some way.

    2. This is hard. I'll name a few: Doodle Jump, Real Racing, Angry Birds, ...
    3. I don't use navigation apps (besides Google Maps, LOL)
    4. Just Calendar for me
    5. Pandora, for sure!
    6. Facebook, but I'm not really into any social apps
    7. I'm not a huge sports fan, but a friend of mine wrote a great app called Fantasy Football Monster (it's so much better than the Yahoo or ESPN versions)
    8. Red Laser
    9. Dropbox
    10. NewsRack and Instapaper

    Bonus: Epicurious, Adobe Ideas, Pro HDR, and if I can plug my own app (which I use to get up every morning), Nightstand Central :)

    1. None owned. Got N.Y. Zombies for free, but it's normally a paid app.
    2. UniWar
    3. Maps
    4. Pocket Informant, SaiSuke, and the Calendar app (syncing with Gcal only)
    5. Top 100 (don't often listen to it, just occassionally like to see if there's anything I might like).
    6. Facebook
    7. Sportacular
    8. None
    9. Pocket Informant (tasks) and Active Money Pro (personal finance).
    10. Fluent News (I think the offline, multiple sources, and custom categories are worth the yearly subscription cost, I prefer it to even my desktop news sources).

    Wow a lot mote variety than I was expecting. I only hear or read about so many apps and I assume it's what almost everyone uses heavily; apparently not. I'm going to definitely check some of the productivity and game apps out.
