    Had a look around, and I don't believe a thread exists for discussing favourite apps, so let's start one.

    What are the apps you have on your phone that you couldn't live without?

    Feel free to give some reasons why, and don't be shy about asking questions.

    Link to the App Store if you would like to, or at least give enough info so that the apps can easily be found.


    Here goes with my current favourites:

    Yamaha's AV Controller (for controlling my home theatre)
    Apple Remote (for controlling iTunes on my Mac)
    Twitter
    iBooks (for reading)
    Kindle (for reading)
    Google Maps (the GPS/turn-by-turn function is awesome)
    SkyPaw's Decibel 10th (for checking just how much noise I'm making: record is 100dB)
    Flixster (for digital movies that aren't compatible with iTunes)

    I'll have to try that Decibel app at a football game, just to see how loud the crowd is.

    It gets better. There's an option to take a photograph of whatever is making the noise, with the dB overlaid. The app is free, by the way, with minimal advertising.

    SwiftKey.
    I think its the best keyboard out there.

    Voice Memos.
    If you have an important conversation that you may need to refer back to this is really useful.

    Music.

    What's the scoop on the World-Fi Map, app? I guess it finds Wi-Fi spots? What if they are secured or password protected?

    Thanks
