    Very cool. Thanks. Do you have the Pro version? Is Blurtooth transfer the only major difference with Pro?


    BMW Parking Assistant - If you use parking meters, you want this free app. You put coins in the meter, you hit a button, it counts down the remaining time and remembers where you parked in case you forgot. If you tell it you're shopping or dining it calculates the time needed to get the check and walk back where you left the car.
    Is this basically a GPS pin on a map with a timer?

    No doubt about it. I also use it to get product information. My son wants an iPhone dock, I'm in the store, the package is lame, the sign says nothing. Scan the barcode, get really good product detail.

    WiFi Photo - no, I only use the free version, not sure what the pro version does. When we get home from a day out, my wife wants the photos off her iPhone. Used to be I had to drag out the USB cord, go into My Computer, drill through three folders, find the photos she just took. Now, I make a bookmark in Safari to the 192.168... address, tap the WiFi Photo app, boom, there are all the photos.

    BMW Parking Assistant - yes, but no pin, just a really cool rotary timer, alarm, countdown. It'll also get you step-by-step back to your car if you're lost.

    iReal is invaluable. They have Pop, Brazilian, Latin, Blues, Jazz - all those enormous Real Books vcome to life. Choose the tempo and play along. As I repeat often, my wife and I entertain ourselves with "karaoke" (playing music)...I sang "Golden Lady" with the iReal and she was pretty impressed.

    Okay, make that very impressed.

    Guitar Pro is a MIDI engine that plays whatever TAB score or regular score you have loaded. You can download TABS and it will convert to regualr notation. For learning and playing along.

    Evernote - use it for all my notes and random crap, and you can sync everything from your work, home and cell all in one place.

    Keyring - keep all of your discount cards scanned and on your phone.

    Waze - user generated traffic reporting app - a must have.


    Also Yelp, Flixster, ebay, PayPal, The Weather Channel.

    +1 to all of that; in a similar vein I use a field recorder app called FiRe; all recordings get uploaded in the same way.

    Installed CamScanner, iTorch and Clear. Found something called Sleep Pillow that is a white noise generator that will be useful for sleeping at work.

    iHole The quintessential proctologist app. All you have to do after you click on the app is to shove the iPhone up your ass and you can get an instant and free diagnosis by the Richard Gere Proctology Institute.

    iFap For those private moments in the airline terminal bathroom when you realize that the hotty that sat next to you on your previous flight won't go near you again in your lifetime. This app records her saying to you "Of all the people I have to sit next to it's you" and will synthesize her voice and provide a near perfect raunchy dialog (in her voice) for your enjoyment.

    Parkmobile - if you live in an area that offers this parking service.

    Find a parking spot - you don't need change. Enter the spot number into the app and pay by credit card through the app.

    2 hour limit expired but your still at dinner? No worries. It sends an alert to your phone that time is running out and you can buy more time without ever getting up.

    Mapquest for iphone (free) has voice-guided, turn-by-turn, GPS navigation. Works great.
