There's an App for That..

Yes, I am the proud owner of an iPhone *let the music pour from the heavens*, and I love every minute of it. In this list of my favorite apps I am leaving out apps such as Facebook, and AOL Instant Messenger; its safe to say those applications are virtually everyone's favorite. I am choosing to include applications that others may not have knowledge of, I know I get excited over discovering new apps and its annoying to see lists of apps you already have.
Lets Begin! (In no particular order, FYI all screen shots were taken from google images searches.)

1. TwitBird Lite -- This is a FREE Twitter Application. Having tried Twitterific and Tweetdeck I can hands down say this is the BEST Twitter App for the iPhone. You have ALL the perks and I have not come across any drawbacks. *two thumbs up*

2. Awesome Note -- Its a paid app that stores notes. Why would you pay for a note application when the iPHone comes with one FREE of charge? Well I wanted something more astetically pleasing. Also You can create folders, color code those folders and choose cute backgrounds for your notes. Also you can password protect those color coded folders. *one thumb up...would've been two if it was...FREE*

3. Topple (1 & 2) --Everyone needs a really great yet simple game application. This is that application. Although it is a paid application it is also available for FREE (so you know i got the FREE Its a simple block stacking game, but the best part is the blocks make the cute faces and tell you if your stack might fall, etc. *two thumbs up*

4. NY Times -- Yes, I'm a geek and I love reading the New York Times. What better place than to read it from my iPhone. The news comes to me! Although nothing beats holding that paper in your hand, but us strap hangers on our commute, sometimes you need that extra hand. Oh, did I mention its FREE!!! *two thumbs up*

5. -- This is a money management application (we ALL need one). And its.....FREE!!! You sign up for a free account on its website, put in your bank information (online log-ins...its VERY secure) and it automatically tracks your spending, and tallies your budgets, etc. It also give you suggestions on saving money and curbing spending, etc. This is must-have application for anyone who needs extra help sticking to your budget...i.e. ME. *two thumbs up*

6. CoffeeSpot Lite -- Working in New York City, and having to do events across the city my co-worker and I are always looking to grab some coffee before heading to an event, because usually its the end of the day and we need a pick-me-up. Why stand and look around or walk around aimlessly when you have a handy dandy application that can point you to the closest Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, etc. And its...FREE. *one thumb up...I mean its just coffee, SO not two thumbs

7. Stick-Fu -- Another game for my young at heart iPhone users. Who doesn't like a FREE Kung-Fu fighting stick figure, I know I do. Need I say more? *two thumbs up*

8. HopStop -- I'm a Jersey Girl, so getting around NYC can be very confusing. Thanks to HopStop I never get lost. Its give a detailed description of how to get from point A to point B, and even offers alternate routes. Its also FREE. *two thumbs up*

9. FMC -- This one is for the ladies, so guys PLEASE skip over this This application allows you to easily track your menstrual cycle. Nothing big and exciting here, but it allows you to note the length of your cycle, when you have intercourse (protected and unprotected...preferrably protected ladies!), and it tells you when you're most fertile (don't do the do on those days..or do the do VERY All in all you get a lot of bang for your buck (pun fully intended). *two thumbs up*

10. Sheep Launcher Lite -- I'll end this on a whimsy note. Sheep Launcher Lite, yes the lite implies that its FREE. I mean you get to TOSS SHEEP!!!! *two thumbs up*

Thats my favorite TEN iPhone applications for now. I'm sure I will discover more and to a part 2 to this list. ENJOY!
