    I realize this is probably something that gets asked a lot or from time to time, but I figured since there is a new carrier there might be a wave of brand new users. I have a little experience with iOS from owning an iPad, but wanted to get some suggestions from experienced iPhone users. I assume other soon-to-be first time iPhone users might appreciate this as well.

    RedLaser is a REAL sweet barcode scanning app!
    Chipotle. Yeah, ordering Chipotle from your phone... heck yes!
    Starbucks. Great for those that are regulars there
    Words w/Friends
    Scrabble
    Cut the Rope
    GasBuddy

    And that's about all I can think of since I don't actually have an iPhone, but have used these apps on some of my friends' phones

    Cut the Rope is a really fun game, Plants vs. Zombies. I like to keep time killer or time filler apps handy. You never know when you will be waiting in line at the DMV.

    Songkick app will let you know about every concert in your city and lets you track your favorite bands. In my opinion it's the best app for the iPhone. That and Twitter.

    I just use the stock maps app. Its not turn by turn voice activated so you have to read where you are going and switch between the map to see where you are.
    Definitely not the best, but i don't use it that often so eh.

    I'm sure some others can give you better recommendations.

    Productivity- Evernote, Wunderlist, Genius scan, timecard pro
    Utility- Appzilla 2, Converter, Dragon Go!, The Weather Channel
    Shopping- Ebay, Amazon
    Reference- Kindle app, ibookstore, bible, red cross first aid, appbzr, Pulse
    Entertainment- Pandora, Stitcher, TuneIn Radio, hulu+(if suscribed), video time machine
    Games- Angry birds, super stickman golf, metalstorm, tetris, bejeweled, fruit ninja, infinity blade, plants vs zombies, harbor master, tiny wingss, sonic 1&2, pocket legends, quarrel

    The list goes on and on.
    This should definately help get you started. Cheers and Happy hunting!

    THE FATE OF THE YETI CHIEFS AND THEIR TRIBES RESTS IN YOUR HANDS!

    Ive found this little gem of a game. Ive been getting sick of the usual Angry Birds type games and I was looking for something new. This game is it.

    Its fun, simple, yet challenging. I cant put it down.

    Look at the sticky thread in the Apps forum, where this is now located, and you will see everyone's top apps. You will also find several other threads along similar lines being even more specific.

    Note to newbies - search first. Don't start a new thread if you haven't already done some digging.
