    I really like SoundHound, which lets you record a bit of a song on your phone and it will contact its server and tell you the name of the song. There's another app that does the same thing that was shown in an iPhone commercial a while back (can't remember the name) but I tested both and found SoundHound to be quicker.

    The mobile apps for Yelp and IMDB are also useful, and if you use a major bank they probably have an app for accessing account information and using your phone's GPS to find the closest ATM.

      Not sure about for the iPhone, but Driod has "Shazam" which has the same feature.

      I like CalorieCounter, which has a pretty good range of both fast food and regular food and gives you a pretty good estimate of your daily intake. It can also take into account your daily activity and give you the net gain/loss of calories for the day.

      Haven't found a sports widget that I like yet.

        SportsMobile (I believe) is a good way to check on scores on anything but college hockey.

        Also I enjoy the MLB App because of the nice boxscores and whatnot.

            I only use a couple apps for my Blackberry at the moment (besides the stores themselves).

            MLB At-Bat ($15) - The price tag is the cost of the radio broadcasts for the year that comes with it, so the app in essence is free. Has Box scores and live gameday. Gets better with each update, as it just became compatible with BB this season.

            Weatherbug (Free) - Lets me save several locations for quick weather info when I travel to visit family and friends.

              I have an Android:

              Google Sky is probably my fave

              I use the Dolphin Browser instead of the stock one...it is the Dolphin is the Mozilla browser.

              I have way too many apps

                I have a Black Berry Tour with Verizon.

                I like the Amazon and Weather Channel apps.

                I bought a "white noise" app for $2.99.

                I also use KQ-92 (Minneapolis radio station) and Pandora quite a bit. The NHL app is also pretty good for catching scores, and hockey news.

                  ESPN Score Center is a MUST.

                  The CNN app is very good too.

                      I've got a blackberry storm with VZ.

                      Youmail: Voicemail app, sends me emails/texts when I get a voicemail and has several pre-loaded messages to give callers (even on a per-caller basis... that ex you don't want calling? Yep, you can prank him/her with a couple)

                      Pandora/Slacker Radio: I've got both, as both have their +'s and -'s.

                      Skydeck: Syncs contacts to my phonebook and will "name" unknown contacts based on who the # is registered to. Has become pretty useful and runs in the background without slowing my phone down.

                      Quickpull Light: Simulates a hard-reset with the battery pull that so many of us blackberry users know all too well.

                      Blackstar: GPS addon that can track speed/location/altitude and is ideally suited for geocacheing, although I'm not using it for that.

                            G4 gave this a 5/5 rating in their review.

                            They said the only thing you might not like is that the accelorometer only works in 1 direction (i.e., turning it right it will shift, turning it left it won't) . Otherwise it does everything great.

                            It made me want to get one since its running Android 2.1 and the HTC UI. But I will have to wait till after September. I don't want to re-buy MLB At-Bat for this season.

                              I think android apps are tied to your google email address, so you would be able to just redownload it on your new phone. Unless you have it on some other platform and then you can just ignore this.
