Pocket God is fun. If you use Gmail you'll want the Google app. The Yelp app is pretty handy, SureFire has a simple shot timer tool which is pretty neat. Red Laser is awesome, it uses the iPhone camera to scan barcodes of different products and then checks prices and availability via Google and Amazon. I picked up 'Classics' for $2.99 I think, and it has 23 classic novels loaded on it; stuff like Treasure Island and HG Wells classics, The Art of War, Frankenstein, etc. Library in a pocket!

Cydia + Winterboard

I had my iPhone less than a month before I jailbroke that sucker. I find it dumb that its hardware is capable of so much but the software keeps a vice grip on your balls. Now I enjoy multiple apps, customization, folders, 3rd party apps and tons more.

There's a new app called "Mark the Spot" that allows iPhone users tell AT&T when they drop calls or have little to no data coverage.

You can turn off 3G and it lasts a good bit longer.

Also might be a bum battery. First phone I got only lasted 6 hours so I returned it. The one I have now lasts about 2 days.

Can someone tell me why you need the Google App is when you can use Google Sync?

Not only that, but doesn't the phone already do everything the Google App does?

I've haven't lost any data with my Jailbroken iphones. Jailbreaking for me is just for the extra features that you can't normally do on the phone. As far as the worm goes, it only applies if you installed and use Open SSH and leave it on without changing your password. You just need to change the password on SSH. If you don't change it, it leaves the default pw which everyone knows.

This is the more expensive app. I bought it in the first few weeks it was out for a discounted $6.99 + all updates.

It seems to work perfectly.

I like the surefire shot timer. I used it just now on my air soft gun. On full auto, it shoots 11.2 bps. Battaries low. Now, I can't wait to use it on a real fire arm. I been wanting to buy one of these in the longest time.

I have used the Taurus Shot Timer at the range and it works just great, and it's free.

http://www.taurususa.com/iphone.cfm

And after the iphone is jailbroken, install SBSettings, which allows you to quickly turn services on or off to extend battery life. I'm now getting 2- 2 1/2 days out of a battery charge.

Oh and the Direct TV app, you can schedule your DVR to record shows from anywhere. When I had a TiVo I used the TiVo app to change channels via it's Wifi.
