What apps do you guys use/like the most?
For me it would have to be Tiger Woods PGA Tour.
Or a non game app would be MSN Messenger

SkySafari 3 By Southern Stars
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or late
As just reviewed in Sky & Telescope magazine, SkySafari 3 is "revolutionary" and a "game-changer". SkySafari 3 will change the way you do astronomy!
SkySafari 2 was "the most comprehensive astronomy app available for iOS" (iPhone Life, March-April 2011). Now, SkySafari version 3 comes in three versions, and all three offer more than ever before.
This is basic version of SkySafari 3. It shows you 120,000 stars, plus 220 of the best-known star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies in the sky. It displays the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes the best-known asteroids and comets.
SkySafari 3 accurately shows you the sky from any place on Earth, at any time up to one million years in the past or future. It includes encyclopedic descriptions of the constellations, stars, and planets written by professional astronomers. And it contains hundreds of images from NASA space missions, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the world's foremost astro-photographers.
If you have an iPhone/iPad with a compass, or an iPod Touch with a gyroscope, SkySafari can help you identify stars and planets by holding your phone next to them. Tap the Compass/Gyro button (or shake your phone) to activate the compass - now, as you move the phone around, the sky chart follows your motion. Search for any object in the sky, and follow the arrow on screen to find it!
SkySafari 3 has a "Night" button to preserve your dark adaptation as you're exploring the night sky. The Time Flow feature lets you animate the night sky using simple VCR controls - follow the motion of the stars and planets as SkySafari compresses days, months, and years into a few seconds.
SkySafari 3 includes SkyWeek - the mobile version of Sky & Telescope Magazine's super-popular "Sky at a Glance" column. SkyWeek features interactive sky charts for each day of the week, and links to more articles on S&T's website. SkyWeek shows you all major sky events: eclipses, conjunctions, good meteor showers — miss nothing!
And all this is just in the basic version! Don't be afraid to start small - you'll end with the universe at your fingertips! SkySafari's streamlined user interface puts both power and simplicity into your hands - and turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into an invaluable tool for exploring the night sky. SkySafari is more than just a star chart - it's a celestial travel guide!

Other half has for his blackberry it was free, not sure ifit is now. Got a godd review.
GPS Tracker application makes use of Blackberry’s own GPS to have a website updated about your position, along with a track of just where you’ve been. In other words, you could simply see where you are in real time. For example, if you’re riding down the road, you could see ‘you’ moving along the down the road on the map. GPS Tracker is a free app that can be downloaded from Blackberry App Store.
Unless you are on the roll of any spy agency, you can safely have GPS Tracker app on your Blackberry. The most productive fall out of this app is that your dear ones (or you) could see where you (or your dear ones) are any moment. For example, if your friend is in a restaurant to which you’ve never been, and you are lost in the city, you can just send your location to him/her so that they could navigate to your position. The app also lets you record wherever you’ve went in the last couple of days.
Mr. Number app for Blackberry is a call blocker/manager application for your smart phone. You can set the app to block unwanted calls, with exceptions specified, let your friends know when you are free to talk and when you’re busy, and if you are a US customer, you can even find out who is calling if you don’t recognize the number. Mr. Number for Blackberry is a free application that can be downloaded from Blackberry App World.
Features of Mr. Number App
In a sense, Blackberry Mr. Number app brings in the concept of IM status to the mobile phone domain. When you are busy, or simply when you don’t want to talk, you can let the app send incoming calls to your voice mail and in turn send the callers a customized text message conveying your current status. You can even let the caller know when you prefer voice communication and when you prefer text. The app can even let the callers know about your current status, and when you’ll be free to take calls. This feature comes handy in situations wherein you are away for some time, whether it is from work or a short vacation. Also, there is an option wherein the app will notify you about the blocked calls in your inbox.
he free Instango BlackBerry App is a multiple IM chat program for BlackBerry that lets you to connect to major instant messaging networks such as ICQ, AIM, MSN, GoogleTalk, GaduGadu, and Yahoo.
Flixster is certainly one of the apps that have a universal appeal. As the name suggest, Flixster Blackberry app is all about movies. It presents the movie info in neatly presented interface, and easy to use menus. If you are a movie buff, definitely you would like to have Flixster installed in your Blackberry phone. Flixster can be downloaded into your Blackberry free of cost from the Flixster portal.
Once you open the Blackberry Flixster app interface, the top of the screen has got a navigation menu that presents to you with five options: Box Office, Theaters, Upcoming, DVD, and Search. The Box Office section shows the movies that are currently in theaters, and have them listed out by most popular under Top Box Office. For more information on any specific movie, click on the title, and you’ll get a range of options such as actors, rating, run time, and even check show times, plus an option wherein you get to watch the trailer of the said movie and reviews written about the movie by other viewers.
Blackberry users will acknowledge that accessing internet in your Blackberry over WiFi in your office or home is far more quick and efficient than 3G. But things can be tricky if you are on the move. True there could be many WiFi spots in your city. But many want the user to pay for using their WiFi network. This is where Free WiFi Cafe Spots could step in for the user. This Blackberry Free WiFi Cafe Spots app lets you find out the nearest WiFi hotspot with respect to your current location, in 115 countries worldwide. It comes in-built with a database of free WiFi spots in various cities/countries.
Free WiFi Cafe Spots app for Blackberry finds the WiFi hotspots near your location using the phone’s GPS. The interface looks a tad primitive when compared with other applications. But the app is fast, and its international database of WiFi hotspots would mean that you are never too far away from a free WiFi hotspot.

My bro in law has on his andriod phone, camera apps, he loves camera stuff. These are some of his favorite apps, on his android HTC.
Retro Camera/Retro Camera Plus - Free/£1.49
Retro Camera let you choose between five different types of ‘camera’ each inspired by a traditional film cameras: The Barbl, Little Orange Box, The Pinhole Camera and The FudgeCam. Each comes with its own settings each suiting to a different shooting condition. Each has its own unique style, so it's worth experimenting to see what you like.Tap the screen to take a picture. Processing takes longer than conventional cameras, so you need to keep the phone steady, and it can be slow swapping between screens.
From the faux viewfinder you shoot through, to a gallery pictures 'drying' on the line and the ability to send your picture via ‘postcard’ to Facebook, detail is phenomenal and clearly lovingly crafted.Although there are less features than Vignette Demo, it’s far more user-friendly and certainly one of the best looking camera apps we’ve seen. Although if you have a low ad-tolerance level we’d suggest paying £1.49 for the ad-free version.
iVgnette Demo/Vignette Free/£2.49
Vignette replicates the effect different of film stock and huge range of effects available makes up for a slightly rudimentary interface. The most obvious ones to try are Vignette, Portra and Velvia, but beyond that there are heaps more if you've time to try them out.
The fiddliest part of the app is actually taking photographs, landscapes or anything with a wider depth of field are fine, but when shooting close-ups you have to tap an icon to focus, then awakwardly move your finger to take a shot. As well as taking standard photographs, options include Fast Shot, Steady Shot, Strip (which can be used for DIY passport photographs) all of which can be applied before or after. In this demo version the filters only let you capture 0.3-megapixels pictures (the picture above is actual size), which means shelling out £2.49 for the full version, but for the range of features on offer we think it is worth it. If you're happy with a few effects, go for Retro Camera instead.
Pic Paint Free
Pic Paint is a basic photo editing app that lets you apply filters, tweak the white balance and select scene modes. In post-production you can apply more filters via ‘Pic Wiz’ (our favourite is XRay, which gives everything an inverted feel) and crop and edit.
Unfortunately, you can’t use filters on photographs you’ve already taken - which means you are forced to use the app. And in terms of camera feature PicPaint lags behind many smartphones (like the Samsung Galaxy S2) while HTC handsets have better filters from HTC Sense. Sure, it is the highest resolution Android photography app, which means the pictures are a decent sie, but ultimately Pic Paint is best suited to owners of more basic Android smartphones that have fewer native photographic features.
EyeWitness is a collection of photographs taken by the Guardian’s photographers, updated daily, with brief description and Pro Tip. What EyeWitness provides is a snapshot of the topical news, mixed with timely images. So pictures from the London riots and riot clean-up (right), are next to fossil hunters in Dorset and the construction of the new One World Trade Center. Store up to 90 pictures on the phone, select favourites and share them via Facebook and Twitter. For copyright reasons you can’t download or email pictures, although you can send a link.Even if you don’t consider yourself a photography fan, the sheer diversity of images available on EyeWitness means you’ll find something of interest. At the very least it's a thought-provoking snapshot of the world around us, by some of the best photographers.
hoto Grid- Free
Use this well-designed app to create photo montages comprising of: 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 pictures, selected from your everything stored on your handset.Shake the phone to change the layout and swipe to try different frames, although most of them are a little poster-book style.
Although it’s easy to use, once a selection of pictures has been allocated you can’t exchange them, nor you can’t swap between portrait and landscape annotations or add text. In addition while you can share to Facebook, Email, Twitter etc, you can’t access your Facebook pictures. PhotoGrid is useful for quick post-holiday or pre-Christmas collages, but not something you’ll use every day.
Floating Image- Free
In this simple app photographs float across the screen as a slide show. And that's about it. Select from a range of sources, including those stored in-camera, downloads or by adding individual feeds from your Facebook, Picasa and Flickr. The highlight is undeniably Flick compatibility; search for ‘cats’ and your screen will fill with pictures of cats - how cool is that?
Customise the slideshow from the type of movement (our favourite is floating images), interval and transition speeds and drop shadows.We had a few issues getting some of the movements to work, and it’s a real shame you can’t select individual pictures in phone - the only way is to create a folder first via plug and play on your computer.
Floating Image won’t change your life or teach you anything, it’s just a nice app that should make you smile
Action Snap- Free
Capturing movement can be really difficult - a slow shutter or wobbly hand can lead to blurred pictures.
Action Snap lets you capture four or nine shots taken at intervals from 0.1 up to 5 seconds. At the end result all the pictures are in the same frame. This is pretty cool in itself for getting artistic juices flowing, but even better is the ability to apply a selection of retro-effect filters such as: Lomo, Sepia and 1972.
Upload pictures directly to Facebook and Twitter, or to Steply which is a social networking app for photographers. Of course you can take standard singular photographs and HD Beta boosts picture quality
Action snaps is a little niche for most people, but essential for any photography fan
Photaf 3D Panorama/Photaf 3D Panorama Pro- Free/£2.42
A panoramic photograph is something guaranteed to draw ‘oohs and aahs’ from friends and family and this amazing app makes them exceptionally simple to create.
Tap ‘Create Panorama’ then pan your phone right. Automatic Picture Taking is supposed to take each shot for you, but we couldn’t get it to work, however so long as you take pictures at intervals ensuring there is slight overlap and follow the spirit level to avoid wobbles, it's not a big loss. Stitching takes a few minutes depending on the size of the picture, then you can email it or post it to Facebook among other options. Our picture below comprised of four pictures, and has a native resolution of 1821x417 pixels (approximately 2.7MP), which isn’t poster size, but fine for email and social networking. Upgrade to the Pro version for HD pictures, although for most people this simple but very effective app will be adequate

Get ready to make Android your own.
Androidify yourself by customizing the little green Android as yourself, your family, your friends, anyone! Stretch it , shrink it, add a hoody, style its hair, throw on some shades, or even give it a parrot and a pirate hat. Arrrgh!
Once you’ve personalized your Android, share it with your friends, set it as a photo in your contact book, or use it in some inventive way we haven’t thought of yet. Have fun, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Developed together by Google Creative Lab and Larva Labs.
Annotate, edit and save your photos & scribbles… fast
Skitch, the popular desktop app has gone mobile. Annotate an image with arrows, shapes and text. Sketch something new and markup an existing photo, then save your creations to Evernote or share them with other applications.
Drawing attention to your images has never been easier. Here are some ways to use Skitch:
- When you’re at a conference, take a snapshot of the people you meet, annotate it with their names and save it into Evernote.
- Annotate any image, screenshot or photo saved in Evernote thanks to a streamlined Skitch/Evernote integration.
- Download a screenshot attached to email. Open it in Skitch and add your comments. Save to Evernote for later review.
- Take a snapshot of something awesome, resize it, draw an arrow, add a caption, then post the image on Twitter or Facebook.
- Grab a picture of a whiteboard in a meeting or lecture, add a comment and save to Evernote.
- Quickly sketch out a map, diagram or unicorn!
Powerful features to help you get even more out of Skitch:
- Zoom and crop images.
- Create smooth, lines and scribbles to explain an idea.
- Add text using a special high-contrast coloring scheme for readability.
- Markup text with the semi-opaque highlighter tool.
- Re-position and delete shapes, text and drawings at any time.
- Share your work with with any application that accepts images.
Skitch is fast and fun!
Finger-painting apps look magical on touchscreen devices – and parents will certainly appreciate the lack of clearing up required afterwards. Kids will take to PaintJoy, in particular, as it’s takes just a few seconds to select a brush-type and colour before they can start squiggling their little hearts out.
The app offers a good range of brushes and the width of their strokes can be edited too, by dragging bars across the screen. This is, however, a bit of a faff on smaller or less-responsive Android screens. Each action can be undone, but there’s no support for layers, so everything you create is on the one canvas. This means that more sophisticated editing is unavailable (create a doodle on three layers and you could adapt or re-do each one separately), but this certainly won’t worry most kids.
Finished masterpieces can then be saved to the phone and then sent as email attachments, or replayed from start to finish in ‘movie’ mode. A simple tap clears the screen, ready for the next piece.
The free version is ad-supported, so you get the occasional pop-up, but otherwise gives you pretty much everything the paid-for does although the screen-size is slightly reduced.
SketchBook Mobile is a great smartphone drawing app which has just been reduced in price to £0.10 ($0.10) in celebration of 10 billion downloads from the Android Market. What better time to get creative with this excellent tablet drawing app?
In a lot of respects SketchBook Mobile is the drawing app we wanted Adobe Ideas to be. Although this app has the word ‘Mobile’ in its title, it works perfectly on an Android tablet where you can naturally sketch your outlines with a great deal more detail than a smartphone.
Similarly to Adobe Ideas, if you want to create a simple pencil drawing you can do so by modifying the thickness, opacity and colour of your strokes. Unlike Adobe Ideas, SketchBook Mobile includes a broad selection of other brushes, effects and design options.
This range of available options elevates the app to the point where you can create something not at all shabby or just have a huge amount of fun messing about. Importantly, you can layer your drawings on top of each other so, for example, a bold paint brush outline can be shaded in with some swish spray can stylings without ruining the original image.
The one area where SketchBook Mobile does slouch a bit is in its user interface. There are no easy select tools meaning you’ll have enter a menu just to change one aspect of the way you draw. Despite this lack of quick button, the menu system is impeccably intuitive to use with most options available within three touchscreen taps
All in all, SketchBook Mobile may be lacking in polish but all the core ingredients for a sublime drawing app are here and ready to use. Ultimately, that’s all that counts.
