    Question What native iPhone application/feature do you use least?

    Title says it all. I would add a poll to this thread but the possibilities are endless. So how about it, what native iPhone application/feature do you use least on your phone?

    1. Spot light search
    2. Bluetooth
    3. Apps that I never use from Apple -

    Stocks - Bloomberg lets me track my stocks and how much $$$ I make (or lose ).

    Weather - Incredibly lame and really gives no information, Weather Bug Elite.

    Youtube - Bored with watching idiots do dumb things.

    iTunes - I always compare prices with AmazonMP3 before I buy songs now.

    Voice Memos - It's 2009...no need for this.

    Notes - Awesome Note, because it's awesome.

    Contacts App - Not sure why this is even here, looks like it provides "duplicate functionality" to me with what's in "Phone"; lulz Apple.

    Youtube, Stocks, Weather, Voice Memos, Contacts (I usually go through the phone app), Calculator (I'm good at math, no need for it), iTunes, Notes & Compass.

    I barely use the calendar.

    Probably would have been easier to name the ones I do use. Lol.

    Stocks for sure.. Contacts I rarely use because I go through the phone app.. Calculator is rarely used now that I'm not in school. :P

    Stocks. I wish with an un-jailbroken iPhone one could remove said items, or better still Apple made those icons show on page TWO of the screen of icons...

    Dang, a lot of you say clock, I use that for the alarm almost everyday, lol

    I use youtube all the time, stocks I don't as I use better apps like bloomberg and dailyfinance

    For me, the native stocks and weather apps, as well as voice notes. I don't ever open the compass app but it is useful when it integrates with google maps, so i guess i use it.

    You can move the stocks icon to any screen you like, just like any other icon.

    Voice Memo: though I actually like it
    Stocks: I use Bloomberg, it's much better
    Calculator: But I do like it
    iTunes: This is the only app I wouldn't mind if it was deleted altogether from my phone.
    Jailbreaking the iPhone is like dipping iOS in Android sauce - DELICIOUS!

    Yea all these people saying they don't use the clock. What do you use for alarms or timers since other apps can't run in the background? I use the alarm every day. I use the stop watch at work to time experiments if I have to leave the lab or when I go to lunch, love that Apple added lap times in 3.0. I use the timer at home all the time for cooking and grilling.

    stocks. Apple needs a way to keep apps installed but hide them.

    Thanks, I was aware of that. But, saving me having to move it in the first place, it should be on screen 2

    Never use:
    iTunes (If I want to listen to a song, I'll YouTube it)
    Weather (WeatherBug Elite is a must-have for my daily bike commute to work)
    Stocks (Doesn't investment cost money?)
    Contacts (I don't see the point in this one, given the duplicate functionality in "Phone.")

    In fact, I use each of these so infrequently, they're hidden from view on my jailbroken 3G.

    Those I use but thought I wouldn't:
    Voice Memo (Often snag blurbs of songs off the radio or from live performances as a "learn to play this" reminder)
    Spotlight Search (It's quicker, in fact, to spotlight search a contact to call than to navigate through the Contacts or Phone Apps, at least by two taps. No Voice Control love for the 3G, I'm afraid--I see Voice Control as a complete replacement for most of the handy functions of Spotlight)
    Calculator (One of those "You don't miss it until it's gone" apps)
