    Yeah, it's probably games and multimedia software (photo/graphics/audio editing apps) that'll eat up noticeable chunks of space. For example, Dungeon Hunter is a game that's similar to the PC, action RPG game Diablo, and this has a footprint of 224MB. Others that feature fancy graphics and seemingly large levels/features can go around 20 to 90MB each.

    I'd totally forgot about this thread of app reviews, ... ahhhh ... love the breath of fresh air of folks who "use their device" sans all the gripes and moaning on other threads, ... er ... OT there's quite a difference between those who are higher end users and fanboys ... this thread is an example of why I originally came to BH, news, reviews, and how to get the most out of your device, carry on ... oh yeah, BOT ...


    Application: (the new) Weather Channell
    Price: Free
    Requirements: None?
    Grade: A
    -------------
    Now includes video more amusing than anything, and new feature which was flawless on a recent east coast trip, current location.


    Application: (the new) Dragon (Dictation)
    Price: Free
    Requirements: None?
    Grade: B
    -------------

    This may have been mentioned before. I bring it up again because it is a great deterrent to texting while driving ... or it may be just as bad, who knows. Works well even in car, downside, can't seem to do Spanish names like "Graciela." I've almost completely moved away from note.app for short messages to Dragon. The options to send are what you'd expect: text, email, copy, but NEW are twitter and facebook, have not used it but ...


    Application: Starbucks
    Price: Free
    Requirements: None?
    Grade: D
    -------------
    Totally sucks now in 11 states (just finished a college east coast tour) ... from West coast to East coast it is hard as heck to find an actual Starbucks to use this app at ... shame on Starbucks, got me all excited, in Silicon Valley no less, several stores looked at me like I was crazy ... oh well, I guess I didn't read the fine print, "this app is only useful in select elite stores that no consumers actually buy frapps in." LOL

    I have been away from BH for a some time...caught between a Palm Tx and Ipod Touch. I am still using both but leaning toward Ipod Touch.

    App: Awesome Note
    Cost: $3.99
    There is a free lite app to try it out.

    I have not been able to sync Outlook Notes to Ipod touch so began the search for a Note app that synced to Evernote or Google Docs. This one does both. I moved all my Outlook Notes over to Evernote and synce with Awesome Note on my Ipod Touch. I am in heaven. The app allows categories of notes with quick notes that can be written with you finger. It also has the ability for Todo's with notification. I have never looked back at the standard Ipod Touch app.
    Note: I have paired an old Palm Bluetooth keyboard to my Ipod Touch and now use Awesome Notes as a replacement for my Daynotez app on my old Palm Tx.

    App: Fastfinga
    Cost: $1.99

    This app allows you to write on the screen with your finger. It is a great fast note taking app. I bought this app before I found Awesome Note app. It is great way to do screen write notes and save them in folders. I actually use both of these apps almost daily.

    Naughtypic, how does it work? Any limitations? In my experience, if something sounds too good to be true (free int'l iphone-to-iphone calls, etc.) it usually is.

    This is a little out of date now that there's a Verizon iPhone, but might shed some light:
    Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

    Application: Cross Fingers
    Price: Free
    Requirements: any iOS device
    Looks great on iPad but is a little cramped on iPhone when playing higher levels of difficulty.
    Grade: A+ A must have iOS game.
    Review here.

    This app is for iOS what Nintai was to Blackberry. A game that is unplayable with a mouse but is a heck of a lot of fun with multitouch. Check it out!

    Application: Snap-A-Note
    Price: Free
    Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. Requires iOS 3.0 or later
    Grade: A
    -------------
    Incredibly useful app especially if you tend to be forgetful. Follows the theory of Picture Superiority Effect (PSE). By simply tapping your screen, you can instantly take a photo of the item that you need to remember such as a price tag, book cover or wine label, and send the picture you took to your email or your friend’s email.

    Photos can be scaled into three different sizes: Small (33.6KB), Medium (81.2KB), and Actual Size (500KB). You can even include a written message/note when you email the photo you took for a better description of the task or item that you or your friend have to do or purchase. Also allows to send your photo note to multiple addresses at once.:)

    Application: Star Walk
    Price: $2.99
    Requirements: iPhone 4s/4/3gs/3g, iPod touch 5/4/3

    Absolutely in love with Star Walk, probably all stargazers would love it. You just point your iPhone towards the sky and it says what you're looking at!! With the bunch of info and facts about any constellation, star or planet. It has all moon phases and a calendar of celestial events like eclipses and conjunction, so you can always set a reminder for it. All my family loves it sooo much.
    Hope you guys enjoy it as well :)

    That seems fairly expensive for an app specializing in soup recipes. The Times did a good survey of recipe apps, and most are either free or $1 for many more recipes. Not to mention great websites like Epicurious.com.
