Must have Apps for new iPhone users?
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
Cut the Rope
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

-HuluPlus is a must for me!
-HBOGO is awesome!

Yeti Confetti rocks!
THE FATE OF THE YETI CHIEFS AND THEIR TRIBES RESTS IN YOUR HANDS!
Iíve found this little gem of a game. Iíve been getting sick of the usual Angry Birds type games and I was looking for something new. This game is it.
Itís fun, simple, yet challenging. I canít 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.
