      Hi Mike,
      Here are some of my favorites:

      AVS Forum
      Yelp
      CBS Sportsline (and the Football version)
      Golfshot GPS
      Some financial ones - personal banking, etc.
      WootWatch
      MidnightBox
      Amazon
      Groupon
      Angry Birds - semi-addicting
      Rhapsody
      Sonos - very, very cool if you have their gear
      SoundHound - just picked this up and seems to outperform Shazam
      Pandora
      Engadget
      And a shameless plug for my employer (& profit sharing): Southwest Airlines!

      Yeah, that list was probably a bit long, but I do use the majority of those regularly...

              I was playing some videos on netflix last night on my touch, but I have never been a fan of watching tv or movies on a screen that small, but regardless it is a really cool app. I find it incredibly useful for searching for movies to put in my instant queue to watch on my roku (or xbox or dvd player...).

              My favorite app is the Insteon Controller. Yeah, its pricey at $20 but it is the best darn remote for whole house lighting I have ever used.

              I also love the Sonos app. Considering its free it makes more sense buying a 8gb Touch instead of Sonos's $350 controller.

              Kindle is another great app.

              If you have kids or nieces or nephews the Disney app has some cool games and stuff kids like.

              Directv app is a live saver sometimes. So easy to record away from home.

              Idealyzer is a nice app for getting a rundown of all the daily deals on one page (ie Woot, NewEgg, etc..).

              and for fun Angry Birds, Virtuoso lite (piano), and drum kit lite.

                    You are welcome.

                    I bought an Amazon Kindle, but haven't tried the iPhone app yet.

                    Got an email from Plaxo notifying me of their iPhone app yet, but haven't tried it.

                      Angrybirds I hate this game as I play for ridiculous amounts of time trying to get three stars

                      Dropbox Use the link to the left and if you sign up I get extra storage. This is cloud space that is automatically synced for any file added to the folder on your computer, ipad and allows access to all files in your account.

                      IMDB's app...I use it constantly during almost every movie I watch trying to figure out how I know that actor or actress
                      Web Albums - This allows me to share have all my photos from my Picasa account available on my Ipad as long as I have internet.

                      Netflix

                      Flipboard - Great to have all my facebook, twitter stuff in one spot magazine style.

                        I'll check those out.
                        Isn't Flipboard only for iPad, not iPhone?

                        A few more:
                        - Star Walk
                        - PeakFinder
                        - Ringtones (haven't used yet)
