iPhone apps

Picke dup an iPhone a few weeks back. Normally, I enjoy being an antisocial old git, so was happy with my very old phone that people could rarely reach me on. Now I find myself with the iPhone always in reach, annoying my gf when I'm checking the blogroll whilst we're out shopping.

Does anyone have any good Apps they can recommend? Any/all suggestions welcome. I was hoping to find some games that'd catch my eye, but nothign leapt out at me yet. Something in the AdvanceWars / Fire Emblem / Shining Force genre would be cool. Hey, if anyone wants to put together a 2da editor for the iPhone too, that'd be sweet....!

Wyrin - Nothing comes to mind in the game genre you suggested (Inotia is probably the closest) - though Moto Chaser, Tap Tap revenge, Pinball RC,. and Stone of Destiny are all fun). If you play guitar, Guitat Toolkit is indespensable. My Weather is my favorite weather app (complete with radar). There are also quite a few recording apps - great for jotting down mod ideas. Have fun with the new Toy!

Welcome fellow iP-junkie! I'm not a Apple-guy but I'm so in love with it that my wife suggests I should put it on the pillow letting her sleep on the floor insted :)

My favvo app for the moment is Frotz and the Zork module for it (of course) Otherwize it's some of those brain trainers that I use most.

Thanks both for the pointers: will check out. So far i've been enjoying Shazam - lets you identify any recorded music playing - ever with background noise and short snippets from what I've tested.

Personally I liked that casemod someone over at the Fallout forums was making for his iphone...[url=http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Pip-Boy_3000]A Pip-Boy 3000[/url]. He was also working on an app for it, to round it all off.

Though I guess it's not really what you are looking for...

I can see if I can dredge up the thread in the Bethesda forums for you. ^_^

I still don't even have a mobile phone! Guess that makes me an "antisocial old git" as well and getting older. ;)

Mind you, I never go out anywhere anyway. LOL!
