I've had an iPhone for a couple of months and have a few apps, but that's it. What are some of your favorites?

I have a flashlight app that I use when walking in the morning. Easier to carry than a flashlight, but takes longer to turn on when needed.

If you like sky maps/guides (I do!), Star Walk and Distant Suns are great.

Depending on your cable provider, you can usually get their app to control the dvr and check guides, etc. I have the one for FIOS.

Many very good medical apps, Deb. I suggest you browse the App Store for them.

One of my favorite apps is called SoundHound. If you're ever watching TV or out shopping and you hear a song that you like but don't know the name of, you just click on the app and it will listen for a few seconds and then tell you the name of the song and who sings it.

I'm still waiting for a Dave's Garden App but I'm not going to hold my breath!

Dropbox is a great app/idea especially if you are a person that works on different computers or devices in different places. I'm constantly adding files while at work so I can access them at home and vice versa and the few times when I've needed a file while I wasn't at work or home it's been a life-saver.

the one thing I found with drop box.. if you drag & drop a file.. it won't copy it.. it moves the original one and does not leave the 1st file there.. you need to copy & paste if you want a backup copy on your computer.. pretty annoying actually

Have Dropbox but have not used it much. Evernote is another great one.

I have a lot of favorites, but sure do wish Daves Garden would get up with the times and do an ipad/ tablet app.

For travel I like Inrix Traffic to see trouble spots ahead on interstates; Around Me to find coffee and restaurants and neat places to see in unfamiliar areas; Rest Area Finder for the obvious reason; Yelp for restaurants etc, Trip Advisor for hotels and restaurant reviews;

Dragon Dictation allows you to speak your email message instead of typing it, and then lets you review it for typos and send it to anyone without ever typing a word.

Directv app lets me record a show on my home tv from anywhere; TV Guide gives me a quick look at what's on, and it syncs to whatever service you have, including just a converter;

HPePrint lets you print from anywhere to your home printer;

IDocs HD free lets you print from Google Docs;

Spider solitaire comes in handy waiting in a doctor's office.

Weather Live is my fav weather app, but I have the other main ones too.
