Been enjoying AppsGoneFree a lot - some quality apps and games for free each day, and given there is a certain criteria app developers must meet before their apps are included on the list, the level of crapware is low. (though not all games and apps are that good)

Some of the gems I picked up: for games - Beat Hazard Ultra, Jenga, Nuts, Reflekt, and QuadPong (from our own member Rudy). As for apps: PhotoSender (batch Facebook photo uploading app), FiLMiC Pro (camcorder app, lots of tweakable options!), and SmartSync (syncs Facebook photos and profile information with your contact list).


Looks nice, never head of it. Will try out. Thanks! (Y)

I personally can't live without TuneIn Radio, gMusic (anybody try anything better for Google Play Music?), and as of 20 minutes ago Jasmine. I personally wish Google's YouTube app for iOS 5/6 allowed for background playback and it wouldnt have stupid seeking issues. This app actually uses the QuickTime layer to play and honestly feels native again too. Only request of Jasmine is that it syncs with the history of my account and not just itself but it is well done considering also it comes from one guy. Kudos!

Ultimately it's dependent on user preference, but here's a list of the apps that I utilize most often:

Facebook - I'm pretty sure you guys know what this is ;)
Google Earth - Who wouldn't want the world in their pocket?
Engadget - Because what self-proclaimed geek can go without their tech news?
Words With Friends - Digital friend vs. friend scrabble app
YouTube - As the second most utilized search engine on the planet, who doesn't have this?
Angry Birds - One of the most successful iPhone games of all time...
Wikipedia - Because I like to look stuff up on the fly
The Weather Channel - For snow and stuff ;)
Instagram - Cause taking just plain ol' photos isn't always enough
Simple Note - Keeps me organized and allows me to brainstorm on the fly

I saw this being talked about on the news early this morning but didn't realise it was only for Apple, but thought it was fairly cool idea anyway so...

Thought I'd give this thread a bump: if anyone is looking for the best video player for iOS, give nPlayer a try.

 

Highly customizable, has hardware acceleration, SMB/SSH/FTP/etc connectivity, and most importantly, renders SSA/ASS subtitles perfectly. VLC was the other player that did this rendering properly, but it lacks hardware acceleration and doesn't do SMB.

 

It's $5 but pays for itself especially if you've got more than one device. :)

Ohh... Smb support looks nice :). I'll probably check that out.

I've been using AirVideo HD which is a nice solution if you need a wide range of file type support. Only downside is that a server on your PC is required for transcoding non H.264 files.

Some apps that have come in really handy for me:

Duo Mobile - It's a wonderful multi-factor authentication app, and you can even develop your apps to feature push authentication via the app. 

ToDoIst - Manages Recurring events really well and also works as a great to do list manager

Google Voice - Visual voicemail is always handy

AWS Console - If you manage AWS servers this bad boy comes in handy for quick changes on the road. I know you shouldn't need to do quick changes, but if something goes wrong you want to be prepared. 

Amazon Price Check - Check for lower prices on amazon with your iphone camera 

Dropbox - For accessing files on the road

CloudOn - For editing files on the road

Pushover - Custom Push notifications, so easy to implement.

IFTTT - IF this, then, that is an automation app. it's really nifty and allows you to automate tasks you do everyday

Photoshop Mobile - For those on the road selfie fixes

Spotify Premium - I use it because I like it.

AlienBlue - Reddit browser, comes in handy when I am waiting between meetings

theChive - This NWS app is one of a kind awesome picture viewer

 

 

The obvious ones:

Facebook, Twitter, Square, Plants vs Zombies, Cut the Rope, Tinywings, FindmyiPhone, Google Translate/Search/Earth/Maps, Flipboard, Pandora, 8tracks
