    With 50K apps, listing top five discovers little. I have just gone through this entire thread without identifying a new app that I want. Few of my favorites make anyone else's list. Therefore, I propose a new list to be called "what do you use your iPhone for?" I now have a few pages of apps that are organized around uses. Only one is fully populated; some have less coherence than others but I have a

    News Page (RSS, WSJ, NYTimes, Bloomberg, USAToday, Weather Channel, 1Tap Movies, i.TV, MLB, All Things Digital, Slate, Wimbledon......)

    Travel and Navigation (iMap, OpenTable, Exit, BART, Metro, NYC Metro, Station Stopper, City Transit, Flight Status, Airport Status, WorldMate, Exit, Have2Go, ....)

    Communication (Easy Wifi for AT&T, Messaging, Bump, Skype, TruPhone, Dial 0, SlingPlayer, AIM, AOL radio, MPR Radio, TWIT.........)

    Shopping and Banking (Amazon, (Wachovia) Banking, PayPal, VIP Access, Splash Shopper, My Wireless, App Store, Deliveries,..........)

    Utilities & Tools (Air Mouse, Remote, Calculator, 1Password, Voice Memos, Fast Contackts, Camera, Photos, Notes..............)

    Entertainment (iPod, e-Reader, Kindle, Stanza, uTube,

    Reference (Constitution, WikiTap, Roberts Rules,

    Games (a few classics)


    Please tell me your categories and give me some of your favorites in each. Thanks.

    I don't see too many people saying either Safari or iPod or iTunes. What gives?

    Just curious if anyone could tell me what the best app for diabetics would be. I need a huge food inventory that specifically tells me how many carbs everything is....any help would be appreciated~Chris
    Nutrition Menu is probably the largest food db on the iphone (that doesn't require an internet connection anyway). Costs three bucks.

    I did mention iPod. I distinguish between my use of iPod for music and for podcasts; one program but two separate applications.

    I use Safari and have more than a hundred bookmarks. However, I prefer apps to browsing for the same information. For example, there is no information that I can get in my Bloomberg application, that I cannot get through Safari. I just prefer the app.

    Finally, I use iTunes to sycn my iPhone, for the store, and for managing podcasts and downloads.

    I think that it fair to say that I use Safari, iPod, and iTunes more than any of the apps that I mentioned.

    Funny thing is... I don't use the iPod (I like CDs still) or Safari (usually near a PC and if I'm not, I don't want to browse). I find it to be a better messaging tool.

    Excluding Apple's default apps;

    1. BeeJive (the push is awesome, works better than multitasking on WM)
    2. TyroTuner (free guitar tuner which actually works and doesnt screw up my tunes, it tells you if your string is too high or too low)
    3. Bejeweled2 (out of all the games I bought this one I play the most )
    4. iDracula (cool game if you and friends try to beat eachothers highscores)
    5. TCT Lite (free periodic system which actually has a lot of useful info such as oxidation numbers, electronegativity, etc)

    For what it's worth:

    My top 5 aps :
    - iBody - keeps track of my blood pressure, very useful!
    - Notes - I've tried many different word processing aps, but I keep coming back to Notes
    - Maps - beats out my car navigation system half the time!
    - iBlueSky - I do lots of cluster diagrams as a tool to assist brain storming - this is a useful ap
    - Clock - still the best alarm I've found

    My top 5 entertainment aps :
    - Aki Mahjong - I'm addicted, and it's kept my interest over six months
    - Cross Light - crossword puzzles, again, for when I'm in the mood
    - Bloom - this is not a game, but a creative music ap, a superb relaxer
    - Galactica - again, not a game, but a visual relaxer - I get drawn back to it
    - 3D Coaster Rush - I sense I'm going to get tired of this one, but I like it best of the games that use the accelerometer that I've tried (these include many good games, but they tire quickly ... SolarQuest, Star Trek, MotoChaser, etc.)

    Regarding iPod, I've discovered AudioBooks and am listening to them a lot now - both in the car while driving and at home as a means of relaxation.

    Think most people think of "other apps" rather than those built in? That is my first impression.

    Funny thing is... I don't use the iPod (I like CDs still) or Safari (usually near a PC and if I'm not, I don't want to browse). I find it to be a better messaging tool.
    Wow, I bought the iPhone mainly for the web browsing experience and having the iPod with my phone. Funny, if messaging was the primary driver for a mobile device for me I would certainly have a Blackberry! I can type ok with the iPhone, but if I texted a lot, I would get frustrated. But to each his/her own - that's why we have choice!

    I personally use Email, Safari, messaging, iPod, Slacker, Twitterrific (and/or Tweeterfon), the camera and then a lot of news apps - WSJ, ABC, NYT and the new CNN app. And oh, since I have had it for only 10 days - the SpeedTest app!
