The Android app thread was good, thought I would create one of the Apple peeps!

Offline Pages - It allows you to save pages for viewing later, while offline.

Google Earth - just cool

Yelp - Great place to read restaurant reviews near you

HBO GO - Almost all of HBO's original series available at your fingertips to stream.

TuneIn Radio - 10,000's of radio stations across the country.

Shazam - tells you what song is playing

Zombie Hwy - Fun, free Zombie shooter game, addicting

GTA3 - the full version of Grand Theft Auto 3. This game is redonculus!

Relax M. HD - Sound machine

Star Walk - Point it up to the sky and it matches what you see but labels all the stars/planets/constellations

First time I used it it blew my mind that mars is actually that reddish star in the sky.

The ones I use most frequently are:

Convert Units - self-explanatory, user-friendly, everything from volume to currency to speed

Flixster - use it to check out upcoming DVD reviews, showtimes, and Rotten Tomatoes reviews

Last.fm - better than Pandora

Camera+ - some decent editing and effects

iExit - geolocates you when travelling on an interstate and tells you what's available (gas, food, etc.) at the next exit

Around Me - allows to search for all kinds of things (ATMs, coffee, gas, hospital, food, bars, etc.) in close proximity to you based on your current location

ESPN SFTC - necessary only if you play SFTC

Rotoworld - for all your football news

I have

TuneIn Radio - great to listen to some sports talk when going on a long run.

KeyRing - upload all your cards like your VIC or AutoZone or Gym pass to your phone. Can scan them.

MapMyRun - similar to Nike+, uses GPS to track your run and keeps weekly stats and your work out.

Gas Buddy - type in a zipcode to find/compare gas prices around you.

Score Mobile - not as user friendly as I would like, but basically a datebase app for all sports scores/stats/schedules

Yellowbook mobile

Road Ninja - good app for people who travel a lot by car.

Weather Channel - prob the best weather app I've found so far that's free.

InsideCarolina app - nothing special but keeps track of everything and anything tar heel related. Made by "Inside Carolina"

Other common, must haves I own:

Words with friends, Scramble with friends, QR reader, flashlight, Pandora, Shazam, ESPN mobile, Draw Something Free

SoundHound is better than Shazaam, IMO.

I have several Trucking specific apps I use.

Modern War is a cool little game.

Does NC state credit union have an app? I searched for one and couldn't find it, but I thought I have heard they do.
