byline - 2way syncing with your google reader account. after mail, my second most used iphone app. ive tried netnewswire and other rss-readers but as a google reader-user, there is nothing that can beat byline.
tweetie - awesome. there are good free alternatives but for me there is nothing better.
beejive IM 3.0 - a very nice IM with push. worth the money, imho.
instapaper free - the online bookmarking tool for the iphone. there is a 7,99€-version, too but i am good with the free one
camera bag - nice filters for the photos taken. really love it.

games:

seek'n'spell - this is gps-powered real world scrabble. huh? google it! awesome with friends. really.
kingdoms live - you could replace that with imafia, imob, rockstars live or whatever, like a browser game but nice and addictive. it somehow has push now, at least the last time i installed legend points it asked me if it could send me notifications, i havent got any yet, though.
steppin - a nice, casual stepping-game. like in school, with chalk and all. quite challanging.
flight control - addictive. nothing more to say. awesome app.

i must add that i dont really like "real" games on my iphone. i have tried a few, heroes of sparta, which is only 79cents now, asassins creed and brothers in arms and all and while they are all awesome, i find myself installing them, checking em out once or twice and then never open them again. i prefare casual timekillers.
except for one game:

the effin BEST iphone game in the world, seriously:

ENVIRO-BEAR
! the first and only bear-driving-a-car-simulation.
its almost not to control but that is okay, mind you! bears dont know how to drive either. :p

those are the iphone apps i would buy/install everytime again. add facebook, which is nice and does the job and mobile butler, an app to track your minutes or messages left on your t-mobile contract, which offers the iphone in germany.

Heh no mention of WifiTrak so far :huh: - finds and connects to wi-fi networks, much better than the builtin function.

The kingdom games, etc push notifications arent notifications as such, they just popup a red notifier with how many new events over the app icon when you are net connected.

Say you were attacked twice out of client, in your springboard a 2 should be imposed over the apps icon

The new update to NewsStand now sync's with Google Reader which makes this IMO the best RSS reader.

+1

It is now actually useful. If your phone crashed or you needed to restore, adding all the feeds back use to be a pain in the ass. Great app, very usable.

The thing I like most about byline is the offline storing of messages, which I use on my iPod Touch. The Twitter feature of Newsstand is nice though.

see, i didnt even use newsstand long enough to realize it didnt have offline storing which i use alot on my iphone with byline since i work at a hospital and i put my phone in airplane mode. i then read the news offline.

i didnt use it though because it was too slow for my taste and there wasnt actually anything with byline that really bugged me so much that i felt the need to switch.
