8mm video app. Shoots old time looking videos. It's awesome. I shot a run down the mountain top to bottom of my buddies at Stratton last season.

Twitter (for reading)

Reeder (RSS feed aggregator. I hook it up to my google reader feeds)

Instapaper (I send long articles I see on the web, or articles linked in twitter that I don't want to open and read right then to IP)

These are probably my most used apps along with Kindle.

I, uh, read a lot...

Is there a good "car finder" (as in, finding your car in a big mall parking lot) app for IOS that any of you like to use? Had one that was great for my old droid, but haven't found a good one for my iPhone since I switched.

Surprised no one else loves Tune In. Figured with all the huge amounts of sports talk we clamor we listen to, having every AM station on 4G LTE would be a huge draw.

For some reason WFAN doesn't allow to be broadcasted through Tune In, but I enjoy the daily ESPN lineup more anyways.

I like the apps that offer deals, like foursquare, groupon, living social. I also like yelp for FINDING nearby places. Fandango and the AMC app help give you movie showtimes and even purchase tickets in advance (link it with an AMC stubs card and don't pay the fee). Pandora for all my music needs. Flashlight app is good, obviously it uses battery but it's not like I'm a mall cop, I only use it in a pinch. Love the Chase App. For the past 3-4 years I've only ever had to set foot in a bank to deposit a physical check that some douche had given me (seriously people? it's the 21st century), but now the app lets you just photograph the pic and deposit it. I actually also have this parking app from DC that's pretty cool. You don't have to find the municipal meter and use quarters anymore, you can just pay online for street metered parking. Also have MapMyRide to help keep track of my bike rides, and Zombies, Run for jogs (this one costs 8 bucks but it's great. it basically lets you play your own music in the back ground but cuts in with a zombies attacking storyline. Then you have to run faster to get away from them or they "catch" you).

ParkMobile is the greatest app ever. But, yeah, shhagg, it's probably not offered in most cities. It revolutionized parking in DC. You park on the street, log in the corresponding code for that street, and then pay for a period of time with a saved credit card. When you are at the bar/restaurant/store, it alerts you when time is running low. You then push 1 button to extend the time a little longer. Even in 1/2/4 hr parking limit zones, Im pretty sure you can get away with just letting the time expire and then re-upping. It probably doesnt matter as much in cities like NY because you guys dont really ever drive, but DC is still a big driving city, even for going out on weekends.  It's great when you have kids too, because you obviously dont want to have to drag them all the way back to the car just to dump another quarter in the meter.

Topo Maps

I think it may be a tad pricey but gives you access to all USGS Quadrangle maps. Comes in handy for hikers.
