Facebook
WunderRadio - Has most radio stations from around the world, great!.
National Rail - See Departures/Arrivals/Delays at any UK station. Shows where trains are. Journey planner. Good app, just expensive.
Sky News
TwitterFon - Best twitter app Ive used so far.
Backgrounder - Allows you to multi-task :)
Navigon GPS - Not too bad as a Sat Nav, really good actually, although tomtom is going to be better.


Shazam - Its poor compared to Sony Ericcsons TrackID in my opinion.
