Ok, so my best friend just upgrated to an iPhone 4 and was very generous in giving me his 3G. Yaay! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I LOVE it!!!

However, I'm quite the iPhone noob, and would love to know some of the must have apps that you can't live without! For now, I've been using the facebook and twitter app obviously, but I'm also having a blast with Tap Tap Revenge!

I would love some app recommendations, please. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Get TrueHDR (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/truehdr/id340741871?mt=8). It takes great pictures, especially in lower-light conditions.

RedLaser (http://redlaser.com/). Scan a barcode, and it gives you info about the product, reviews, and (most importantly) runs a web search for prices at competitors so you can decide whether it's better to buy it there or order it later.

Don't forget the usual useless but amusing apps like the lightsaber in case you run into rogue sith in a coffee shop, the zippo lighter for concerts or garage bands, the carpenter's level for poster and picture decorating, the starfleet communicator for pretending to talk to the Enterprise..

...and the Marvel and DC apps if you wanna read comic books, they also come with several free issues to download.

Is there an app that will allow you to use it as a phone (http://smallbusiness.aol.com/2010/07/06/the-iphone-is-ruining-my-life/?icid=main%7Cmain%7Cdl7%7Clink3%7Chttp%3A%2F%2Fsma llbusiness.aol.com%2F2010%2F07%2F06%2Fthe-iphone-is-ruining-my-life%2F)? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Woo, thanks for the suggestions!

The DC app is SWEET! I love comics, so of course I'm getting use out of that. I'll dload the Marvel one as well. I think it would be pretty sweet to have one of my own comics on an app, I'll have to see who to contact about submitting something. That would be freaking awesome!!!

I'm really digging the Oregon Trail game. I loved the older game when I was a kid, and this app is amazing. Does the game justice, I am so addicted to it! Also loving "My Japanese Coach"!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

My next game will probably be "Plants vs Zombies". I hear a lot of great things about that one.

YAY I have acquired an iPhone since posting in this thread last time.

I am ADDICTED to the Words with Friends game - let's play?

I also of course have the Facebook and Twitter apps, and discovered the DC Comics before I even saw it in this thread http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Has anyone heard of QRANK? It's a daily quiz game and you compare your scores with your facebook friends. It's insane!!! And free. So I recommend it for everyone, because I want to compete with your scores anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
