Just got my IPhone today. What are the IPhone apps that I've just got to have? I've got a $100 credit at the app store to use.

starbucks
pandora (if you have lots of data)

I must have 50 apps, use those three most often. Also Star Walk is pretty cool, worth the $4.

Hipstamatic (http://hipstamatic.com/the_app.html) is my fave. Take new pictures that look old. I took this one on Friday (two days ago).

I still love Bike Race, and its free.

The multi-player is fun since you can race other folks. My son and I have been racing each other for months....

MotionX is a nice GPS/mapping app with road maps and terrain maps. Works good on the phone for hiking, and on the IPad its fun to have in the truck for navigation.

If you do a lot of road trips without set itineraries (VW Bus life :cool:), there's an app called "Camp & RV" by Allstays that shows various and assorted camp grounds, gas stations, supply places (Walmarts, camping supply places, etc.) based on your location. We took our honeymoon in our '62 bus, and used it extensively to find cheap/free places to camp and such. Don't leave home without it. I want to say it was around $5-$10.

I've been wasting a lot of time on CSR Racing this week. Graphics are pretty impressive for a free game.

if you have a gmail account and travel alot, TripIt is so awesome.

you basically configure it to watch your email box and every time you get a travel confirmation for flights, hotels, rental cars, etc. It automagically adds all of the information to the app on your phone. no more printing confirmation emails, no more searching your inbox for your itenerary, it does all of that for you. it will tell you the best way to get from the airport to the hotel, all kinds of great stuff. The reason it works is because you don't have to do anything at all ever. Just tap the app and there's your flight information. It also picks up info from any email with travel info in it that other people send you and adds that. So your friends are flying in for the weekend and forward you the "woo hoo booked our tickets" email, it adds that, then you know what airline, when it lands, etc for when you gotta run to dia to get them. it's free for the regular version which I use. The pro version tracks and manages all of your frequent flyer miles and rewards.

Did that and got kinda bored after a bit.

Downloaded Dirt Trials 2012 and EnduroXT FR, but those were pretty easy too.

I've been playing with Passbook and TripCase for stuff like this, maybe I'll try TripIt too.

Thanks for the tip, Kipper. Our company provides the Pro version for free for employees, so I just spent the last 30 minutes getting it set up. Looks really cool.

So I was out running around the other day and thought - man, green chile soup sounds kinda good. I wonder what is in that recipe that I could pick up at the store on the way home. I bet there's an app for that.

Does anybody know a recipe app? Free is best if it works good.

Also just found puregas, also pure-gas.org on the web. Ethanol-free gas. We only have 3 in the Denver area :(

Which one? I have three on my iPad, but none of them are as good IMO to Safari. Some take forever to load, others don't display the images, another has ads... I have tried, but can't seem to beat the browser. Which one do you like?

my favorite is cPro+ craigslist client by Escargot Studios LLC. I like it so much I won't search craigslist on anything else like my laptop. I liked pauls search but it really needs a thumbnail photo. That's the biggest thing I like with the CL apps! you can seach multiple locations, set up alerts etc.


the ebay one is good too.

x2 on cPro+. I have used that to score many a sweet deal. It's addictive!
The only time I use Paul's site now, is when I'm scouring nationally for cars. It does multiple cities much faster, and you can see the posting date. cPro doesn't do that very well....
