I finally broke down and bought an iPhone. What are your favorite iPhone apps (free or pay)?

Am I the only one who still doesn't have a cell phone? What is the cheapest one would pay for service now? I would only want one to use in emergencies or if I absolutely had to call someone when away from home. I looked at Walmart yesterday but wasn't too impressed with the pay as you go phones and their prices.

You should explore the Tracfone website: http://www.tracfone.com/e_store.jsp?task=buyphone. You can get a basic phone for $10-$30 (they also have reconditioned models). You purchase a card for 400 minutes for about $100 (good for one year). Spread out over one year, it comes out to about $10 a month. I think (it might be an urban legend) that all cell phones, even phones that aren't signed up for a plan, can dial 911. If it was strictly for an emergency (i.e. 911) you could probably pick up a used phone for free, keep the battery charged, and you could at least dial 911.

Don't feel bad. We are all going to have to keep "pay(ing) for it"

I don't have an iPhone, but I do have an iPod Touch and it gives me access to all the same applications.

As far as free apps go, I have an Ebay app that I will use to check in on auctions a lot. I also have a couple of Bible apps, one being a complete Tecarta NIV Bible that I can pull up for reference with or without an internet connection (I might have paid for that one, but I don't remember). I've also downloaded Google Earth, Paypal and Facebook apps. All for free.

When it comes to games, I really like Zombie Smash and I just downloaded Doodle Jump. Both are awesome games that only cost $1-2 each and they rival the fun factor that you would find in many $50-60 Playstation or XBox games. They also offer more in depth games like Final Fantasy and Myst. Each only costs about $5 and they are complete versions of the games, not just watered down ports. You can also get free games like Solitare, Hearts, Chess, etc.

I was considering buying a PS3 or Nintendo Wii a few months back, but I'm glad I got the iPod first since it's made those consoles almost completely unnecessary as far as I'm concerned. I just wish I could get Legend of Zelda on the iPod, because then I would never have to buy another video game console again.

I can't see myself ever playing any in depth games on a phone. Granted, it could be a time killer when away from a real gaming system.:laugh: My eyes are bad enough without having to squint at such a tiny screen.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to find an app to get the entire ESV Bible on my iPhone for free. I also found the Constitution. If you get the amazon/Kindle app you can download a lot of "Classics" for free. For example, I now have Conrad's Heart of Darkness on the iPhone to read when I have time.

I've got the Droid X.

One of my most used apps is Kindle for Droid. I'm not likely to carry a book around (or even the larger Kindle device if I had one) but I always have my phone. I find myself with some free time and read a few pages. I used to love reading but the last several years I just didn't have time. With Droid, turns out I do have some time.

Other apps I find useful are:
GolfLogix GPS - Distance to hazards, greens, etc.
Places - look up restaurants, bars, gas stations, etc. in the area.
Calendar - handy organizer/reminder
Facebook - ya know.
Google Maps - navigation
Of course, the camera and camcorder are cool.
Flashlight app (uses the camcorders LED)
Email
Text Messaging

I went on a trip last week and never turned on my laptop. The Droid has practically replaced it.

You must get Epic Citadel for the iPad/Touch. It's a demo of a 3D engine by Unreal Technology & it's amazing. They're planning to come out with a fantasy RPG in 2011, I believe.

I've also got Netflix, the Bible, iBook (Made in America is kinda jacked up thigh, I'm bummed), & a few others.
