In honor of the release of Skype for iPhone here is my list of essential apps.
Evernote: simply awesome and the new 2.0 is so much faster
Last.fm: still on the list for now but if the CDN pay plan comes in this is off the list
Skype: VoIP on the iPhone. Nuff said. Although you’ll need to set up an American account to get it and the call quality has been inconsistent for me so far.
WordPress: using it now to write this post. Obviously only useful if you have a wordpress powered site.
Twitterfon: best free twitter app.
Facebook: they’ve done a good job making it more stable and useful although access to events and phone book would be helpful.
Google Reader: perfect. Star, share, comment, catalogue all from the iPhone.
Buxfer: got me to move my personal finances into the cloud.
Wikipedia: there are a couple store apps available but honestly the official mobile portal through safari is great enough.
PDANet: 3G tethered modem. Awesome
Clippy: cut and paste ahead of the 3.0 update.
SBSettings: quick access to settings without having to leave apps.
