After over a year of using iPhone apps (and almost a year of using an iPhone 3G). Here is a list of my top iPhone applications that I will continue to use in 2010:
Byline: a Google reader client, supports caching as well.
BeejiveIM: an excellent instant messanging client.
Simplenote: notepad application with online sync and many features.
Evernote: another note syncing app/service. Only recently they added offline note viewing.
Amazon Mobile (US store): if you ever buy from Amazon then make sure to install this app. Makes the process of shopping at Amazon easier.
WeatherBug: checking the weather, more detailed than others.
AppBox Pro: includes unit and currency converter.
WordPress: manage your WordPress blogs.
TrackThis: tracking packages with support for push notifications.
Gowalla: add your favorite location on the map, excellent social networking app.
LittleSnapper (Mac client here): takes screenshots and photos, a picture sharing tool/service. LittleSnapper for the iPhone has been acquired by a new company and will be released under the name Cinder.
Shazam: finds music by listening, just let it record a part of a song and it will find it.
Prowl: send Growl notifications to your iPhone via push notifications.
Dictionary: because you will need a dictionary app when there’s no Internet connection.
BargainBin: help you find discounts in the App Store.
Nice Trace: trace route network tool.
Skype for the iPhone.
Moodagent: Generates playlists based on mood sliders that you can set.
Facebook app: a better Facebook interface than the Facebook website.
