I've gone from Mr. "Cell phone? I don't need no damned cell phone!" to Mr. "Damnit, why am I always so resistant to new technology? - The iphone is kewl."

Anyway, aside from weather/silly photo stuff, I haven't gotten any super useful apps. Which ones make your life easier every day, or are just downright weird and entertaining?

Logworks and Dynolicious

Angry Birds

GorillaCam is kinda kewl

eBay, PayPal, USPS and Craigsearch and you won't hardly need your laptop to buy or sell crap.

Race Monitor for viewing laptimes at an event

Bolt & Nut for determining the proper sizes, etc.

Evernote for keeping track of your notes/lists (its cross-platform sharing capability is damned handy)

G-Meter, Trapster, Units, MapMyRide, Log Box, Photobucket, NASA, Speed Test

Skype, Find iPhone, Sound Level, Wikihow/eHow, etc...

I have an android phone that I'm content with. The wife got gifted an ipad2(lucky duck). I like google navigation on my phone, just wondering if there is an equivalent for the ipad2(it has a gps as its the 3g version).

Android apps I like are Trackmaster and kindle. Google Navigation touchdown(its a ms office interface) WRC, you can get live streaming info from wrc events I also like MLB's app, yet it really doesn't like my phone.
