- AIM - 'nuff said! I'm seancorfield on AIM (just in case you're not on my list of 200+ buddies). It works except for a repeatable crash whenever I try to view my "coldfusion" group. Not a big deal since I mostly go through the "All Online" view. Hope that gets fixed.
- WeatherBug - weird but interesting. I wish the radar would automatically zoom in on the selected station.
- AirMe - I think Flickr is really dumb but this app will have me using it a lot. It lets you take a photo and it will automatically tag it with the current location and weather and upload it to your Flickr account. Easy enough that I'll actually take more photos on my iPhone and publicize my photostream!
- Twitterific - I tried this and didn't like it (or had some issue with it?). Anyway, it did not stay installed for long. Twitter via the web is fine on the iPhone.
- Evernote - I'm just starting to use Evernote but haven't really figure out what I'm going to do with it yet. Having the application on the phone is easier than working via the website. We'll see.
- People - This is Yahoo!'s White Pages and I like being able to look people up by name or phone number and then add them to my contacts / address book.
- Dobot Todos - I don't know whether I'll actually use this. I've gotten used to 43actions via my iPhone (I'd love to see a real application version of that!). Dobot Todos is a nice, simple to-do list.

Just a quick post about everyone's favorite blog topic: the updated firmware for the iPhone and the new AppStore. I was away in Vegas (more later!) so I missed all the trauma/drama that some people suffered. I updated my iPhone yesterday with absolutely no problems and my wife updated hers with no problems either. Yay! So it reset my home page layouts (boo!) and reset my default ringtone (grr!) but otherwise it was very smooth. So then I went off to the AppStore to see what was useful / interesting:
