    I use WinAdmin (10 bucks) - I use it all day long. It's great for managing servers from any location - uses RDP. Works great even on 2G. It has great user controls for right click, double click, copy and whatnot. So far it's been worth way more than 10 bucks in the time it has saved me. You can also open multiple pc sessions at a time.

    pTerm SSH Client (5 bucks)- This works great for anything linux, same as above for server administration and whatnot. This works great on any network, all i use is bash, so theres no GUI. great for DB work away from the office or just web server stuff. I love it.

    These two are the reason i will never give up my iPhone.

    I'll share a few of mine:

    Of course, there's Cydia and Winterboard to customize. With that you can add Cycorder to record movies, even on a 2G/3G

    Then, with Installous, you can get all the paid apps.

    If you like tower defense games, try "Knights Onrush"

    Hi How Are You


    And regarding Installulous: I'm all for previewing things before wasting $5 or whatever on them, but if you find an app that you like especially if it's from an independent producer, show some support and buy it. Not only does it encourage creative and independent game/app production but you'll always have the most up-to-date version of the game/app.

    I totally agree! But considering the boatload of crap in there, I really prefer to take a peek before paying (not all apps got free "lite" versions)

    Personnaly, my Cydia serves me principally for customizing (themes, ringtones, etc).

    Hey I just got a 32gb iPod Touch. Loving it!

    Assassin's creed is pretty good, apparently it is the DS version, only with better graphics. Looks and plays really well.

    Anatomy

    Really cool way to learn all the bones and muscles etc. Some of the most useful info I haven't learned yet... Anyway it's a little game where it shows a color diagram of a human skeleton or organs/mid-section / brain etc., then it says a word like, "Patella" and you click the knee cap. It's like pin the tail on the donkey, but you quickly learn all the bones in a human skeleton, where each organ's at and so-on.

    There's a demo called "Bones Lite" that just does the skeleton. It's free. Get it if you want to try this one, but the $0.99 one is like 10x more complete. Definitely worth a dollar for this kind of education on human anatomy.

    Note Tutor
    Best program I've found so far to help you learn to read music.

    CTC Lite
    The free version is so fun. You just throw a boulder at a castle made of brick etc. You hear the people scream when they die and little pixel blood splats out. Awesome. I bought the retail one ($0.99 for a few more levels and build-your-own)


    PS Mobile (Photoshop Mobile)
    One of the best iPhone apps I've found yet if you use the Camera a lot, which I do constantly.

    It was free. You can just take an image and quickly make it brighter (effectively) or crop something out. Super fast, and it can host the images online or something. But I just save new copies.

    Lux Touch
    Like Risk

    TouchTerm
    Free SSH/telnet client

    Imp or Oaf
    Weird game that's semi-fun the first few times you play. Really amazingly cool music and sound effects. Seriously worth downloading for this alone.

    TCT Lite
    Learn the periodic table sucka

    Discovery
    If you like electronic music, this app is worth checking out. You slide between digital/organic and between faster/slower, then it picks a song and streams from its library that matches that criteria. Tinker till you find the sound you want. This was free.

    Drum Kit
    fun

    Torx you should try Trace if you haven't yet. It's like an Atari 2600 platformer or something.

    I've played far too much of Angry Birds this week. What's not to like about angry birds bombing pigs?
