Hey guys,

What are your favorite apps for the iphone?

I just got mine last week and im still discovering things.
post #2 of 26
Here's some of the apps I'm packing.

Utilities:
iSSH for SSHing my server
iTeleport for VNC
iMonkey for media monkey (like itunes but better) remote control
Air Video to stream videos from my computer to my iPod.
ToDo: To do list
Shazam: Music identifier
Dropbox: Self explanatory
Sleep Cycle: Alarm clock that analyzes your movements when sleeping, and calculates the best time to wake you up based on how deep of a sleep you are in (My most useful app)

Games
Angry Birds
Doodle Jump
PvZ
Traffic Rush
Pocket Tanks
Cut The Rope
Sudoku
Tap Tap Revenge 3

Thats not everything, but those are my top apps.

Also, consider jail breaking. It really adds so much more functionality.

I dont want to turn my phone into an iBrick, currently im on v4.2.8. Jailbreaking guides usually go out of date after a firmware update it seems so i'd prefer a recent explanation before doing it.

Anyways, my current tops are

Pandora
Redlaser
Shazam
StumbleUpon

With some others like facebook, skype, xblaze, and aroundme.

it is pretty much impossible to brick an iPhone. Just follow the guides and it is quite easy.

I liked my iPhone when I got it, I loved it once I JB it (but still despise having to use iTunes).

Yea, i just found it about 3 weeks ago. Great little tool for checking on my server and folding rigs quickly. It is only one of about 4 apps that I actually found useful enough to buy. I usually stick with free versions and deal with the ads, but this was worth it.

Media Monkey. It's one of the greatest things (software-wise) that's happened to me.

Make sure your iTunes is up to date and redsn0w can jailbreak 4.3.3 which is currently the latest iOS firmware
