Killer aps for the iPhone?

My wife finally got her beloved iPhone. I admit that I can't stop playing with the thing either. Anyone have any favorite apps? I've downloaded some freebies: facebook, wikipedia, sports updates, flashlight.

What are some must haves that are actually worth paying for?

Why the hell doesn't the HTC 6800 have apps? That really is the advantage of the i-phone. It's not like it's head and shoulders better than other phones on the market as far as how powerful it is. It's just the user interface is one that you can add programs very easily and it is user friendly as far as I can tell.

Just an FYI. I fired up my wife's old phone, and it works fine on wifi. Says "no service" all the time, but if you're in a wifi network it works just like a touch.

I work for ATT Wireless...It will work for a while but eventually the system will recognize what's going on and it will stop working

If that is the case, why gimp the hardware just because somebody isn't using their old phone as a phone. Thats just dumb.

At which point I would imagine jailbreaking it would fix the problem.

What is the point of simplify media anyway? Wouldn't it be easier to just put the songs you want on the iphone rather than stream?

Storage, for one. I have roughly 30 gigs of songs and a 16 gig iPhone. If you have a 32 gig 3G S, this probably isn't much of a problem. You also apparently can access music other people's music.

Also, for me, since 3.0 went live, I can't play songs through the iPod function on my Sony dock. Pandora and everything else works, but not the ******* iPod.

I downgraded back to 2.2.1 on my Touch. I didn't like 3.0 at all. Once they get the bugs worked out I'll go back.

WTF retarded shit are you smoking? I'm not trying to take away from what the iPhone can do, but that's a terribly ignorant statement. Windows Mobile has far more apps than the iPhone does. The iPhone is hot shit right now, but your HTC 6800 is far more versatile than even the most current iPhone. I'm a huge Apple geek, but the iPhone is just now getting features that Windows Mobile has had for years. Windows Mobile is the most flexible mobile OS ever. And it's dominantly been that way for over 8 years, while the iPhone is just now catching up with WinMo features.

I don't think you understand what all you can actually do with your Mogul. Less than a few months ago.... this was absolutely true:



That's absurd for the price difference between them at the time. Apple has since solved MMS, C+P, and a few other features that the iPhone has been stupidly slow on implementing. But still. Think about it.

The iPhone is definitely a very very cool phone. But it has had to overcome some serious shortcomings. And it hasn't done it gracefully. Stuff that WinMo has done for years.... Plus it's outright expensive as ****. I could configure your phone to do 98% of what the iPhone does for a mere fraction of the cost both service plan and software purchasing wise. If you think your Mogul is limited application wise, you are clueless as to the extended funcionality of your phone. I used to own one.

Seriously. Start a Windows Mobile thread, and I'll help you to get your Mogul to do whatever you want. Your phone is capable of so much, it pains me to think you believe it's limited compared to the iPhone.

Read this: http://www.testfreaks.com/blog/infor...mobile-part-2/

Maybe it will lift your spirits... because most of it is still true...

And go here and look around:

http://www.xda-developers.com/
http://www.ppcgeeks.com/

Just about all the shit you will see there is possible on your phone.

[Sorry to threadjack.... let's talk about the iPhone.....]

Depends on what type of app you're looking for. You can control your iTunes library with "remote". Works great.

Shazam is a good app.

I have Grocery IQ which is nice for grocery lists. Though I paid for this one. It is only .99

Get Pandora Box. It lets you know all the price drops to free. I have picked up several quality apps thanks to that little app.

Showtimes is good for movie showtimes. Also, check out Shazam if you're a music fan. Very cool app.
