What’s The One iPhone App You Can’t Live Without?

According to All Things Digital’s Media Memo, there are 6.6 million iPhone apps currently being sold each day, Peter Kafka wrote: Photo by: mind on fire

…let’s note that the velocity of apps Apple (AAPL) is delivering is increasing: It took Steve Jobs and company a little more than a year to serve up the first 1.5 billion apps, which averages 4.1 million downloads per day. But Apple moved the next 500 million apps within 76 days. That’s a 6.6 million-per-day average.

Today Apple sent out a press release stating that two billion apps have been downloaded to date. There are now 85,000 apps in the App Store.

Not including the apps that iPhone includes, what’s the one app you can’t live without? Why?

    1Password. I always need passwords to websites and application all the time.

  • adamriggins

    BeejiveIM would be mine… I use it more than any other app…

    Zenbe Lists – it remembers my several to-do lists and other stuff to remember better than my brain does :) I use this app many times a day. easy to use, convenient desktop access via the web and effortless sync.

    a close 2nd would be 1Password, but I tend to rely more on the desktop version than the iPhone version of the app.

    Oh nice! I might have to give this one a try. Thanks.

    Scrabble. Nice!
    My Dad, brother and I use to have some serious Scrabble sessions. I'll
    check this one out for sure.


  • webslog

    Online private or public games with up to four players. Archives
    every game you play. It is absolutely wort6h the money. (9.99 i think)

  • aaronstepanik

  • Dave Delaney

  • Galley At Bat 2009, because I know I can get a baseball fix wherever I am.

  • Dave Delaney

    I haven't seen that one, but it totally makes sense to me.
    How are the Blue Jays doing this year?

    1Password as well and MyNetDiary – it's amazing how the latter helps me stay healthy!

  • Dave Delaney

    MyNetDiary looks promising. I'm always looking for a way to better
    track what I eat. Thanks.


  • caliberstone

    As of right now, it's a toss up between Things, Awesome Note, and iFitness

  • Dave Delaney

    I dont know those. I'll need to check them out. Thanks.

    Having only had my phone a few months i am really in the app discovery phase, I have purchased a few apps now and download a heap of free one. The thing with the iPhone is that you can have so many apps at you finger tip, so picking just one is way to hard. So let say top 5 at this time, not including games….

    Pocket Weather – Australia (just found out it was made in my home town which is kind of cool), I think they have a world version….great app

    Things – Sync with my mac version, very cool 'to do' app

    Road Trip – great log book for car, first thing I bought

    Grocery Gadget – Syncs with web and therefore updates on any iPhone linked to the account, just got this, but it will make the weekly shop much easier.

    Commbank – Again Australia only, but let me check account balance on the run and also ATM locations.

  • Dave Delaney

    Great selection Simon, thanks!

    Twitterrific by The Iconfactory.

  • Galley

    Not well; 4th in the AL East.

  • Dave Delaney

    Great call Chris! I love my Twitter apps.

  • d3bruts1d

    Probably 1Password or iBank. Use 1Password to store website login info, safe combinations, and other important bits of info. Use iBank to keep my financials in order. Back when I was on the road a lot for work, I used Gashog to track mileage and gas costs.

  • Dave Delaney

    Interesting. The password management and banking apps tend to be quite
    popular. Thanks.
