    iPhone Apps..........?

    OK, now that my daughter has moved to Canada, I get my iPhone, finally

    What handy apps do you have on you iPhone, free is best, but if something is really useful, I'll gladly pay for it.

    I have:

    Compass
    eWiFi
    Google Earth
    Flash-Light
    iHandy Level
    PreSize
    Solitaire
    TanZen Lite

    What Apps do you use all the time and find handy?

    Cheers!

    Dictionary.com, Japanese dictionary and Tokyo subway. Dictionary.com is free and the other two I bought.

    Thanks Alex!

    A translation dictionary would be welcome for sure!

    Stu,

    I know you are a big Skype fan so do you have Skype on your iPhone?

    Those I find I use most are
    Facebook
    The weather Channel (do they have one in Japan)
    DocsToGo ($9.99 - allows you to open, edit, email, etc. Word, Excel, Powerpoint docs)
    eBay
    PhoneFlicks (Access Netflix que)
    BoardFoot
    PS Mobile (free Photoshop)

    A couple may be of no use in Japan, sorry.

    my son fills his with games... He signed up with 'http://freeappaday.com/' and they make an app available for free each day.

    Two of the guys at work here use theirs for watching their diets -- they have "loseit" which is in the health section, and free I believe. I gather there is a database with calories and the like so they track their intake.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I'm not sure that you can use it on your iPhone, at least in Japan, that would be cool!

    Stu,

    I use it on my iPhone (skype) here in the states.

    of course I use mail, contacts, maps, weather, voice memos, along with many games to pass the time waiting in doctors offices etc.-- Hope this does not violate the CoC but I have the Book of Common prayer on my iPhone..

    Some free, some were purchased, some used more that others:

    AppBox Pro (all sorts of handy apps rolled into one)
    Pandora Radio (tunes)
    Radio Paradise (tunes)
    iCarPark (where did you leave the car?)
    GasBag (gas station prices)
    TaskPro (to-do lists)
    Grocery G (grocery shopping lists)
    Theodolite (a thoedolite)
    Carpenter (levels, rulers, and a plumb bob)
    Scanner 911 (live streaming police and fire scanners)
    I.D. Wood (wood identification reference)
    Need for Speed Underground (racing game)
    Need for Speed Shift (another racing game)
    Midnight Pool (8-ball and 9-ball pool)
    Moodagent (music playlist generator)
    RedLaser (bar code scanner and web-based pricing...more nifty than necessary)

    Not nearly a complete list, but those are my favorites.

    It's only a violation if you start posting quotes from it.
