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.

PandoraBox is a great app. It lets you know if any other apps are going on special promotion for the day. You can get some of the most popukar apps for free if you were lucky!

I second Mephistopheles' suggestion of Stanza, it is by far the app I use most (along with Safari) on my iPod Touch.
