I'll check ebuddy, that could be a big help, txs!
Enjoying the world cup loads, a good stats football/soccer app is knocking around too I noticed but lost the name.
"Instapaper" "web offline" are useful for storing webpages for offline.

Note that stars are out of 5. :)
Any Assassin's Creed game (I have ACII:M and AC:AC) ****
Chaos Rings *****
Doodle God *** Really fun, but then there's nothing to do after you beat it.
Galactic Empires ****** Yes, really, 6 stars. This game is amazing. If you get it, add flaimdude as your reference and search for the chaosFlare alliance. ;)
Guitar Hero ****
NOVA **** An oldy, but a goody. :)
Pocket God *** Fun, but gets old after a while.
Battle for Wesnoth ****
Tap Tap Revenge (1-3) ****
Final Fantasy I and II *** they're both really good :)
Sword and Poker 1 & 2 **** Ditto
Zenonia 1 & 2 **** Ditto
Battle of Puppets ****
Zippo Lighter ****
iGlowStick **** (yes, seriously, it's a lot of fun lol)
Engadget ***** epic.
Particle Zoo ***** for nerds like me! :D
Sunlight **** pretty cool.
NIV Bible ****** ;D
Blades of Fury

G8 to see what ppl are finding useful/awesome!
Charadium (ngmoco) looks v fun, this company who did rolando are usu good.
My old iPhone does not do GPS apps functionality otherwise some of those bike/run map/calorie/km trackers/trainers would be there also - damn!
Will check Galactic Empires 6* eh?!!

A lot of apps to check out.
Just got "momento", a nice journo for anyone doing some travel...
Also there are a few "bleep test" apps out there and will report back if the one I got works end of week when I take the test! Phew!

Hah, I like "Mr. Space", a little arcade-y reaction time game. Intensely stressful.

Topping up this thread with some recommendations I recently tried up:
Spider: The mystery of Bryce...
Very addictive! You are a species of jumping spider (notice the jumping & twiddling fangs distinctive of this species) spinning webs to gobble down various insects, g8 graphics and fluid gameplay. Very relaxing.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - on a sale, all 5 chapters for very cheap price compared to ds, v fun script game.
Neither as fun as PL, needless to say, but top titles.

A few space games I've looked at but not bought as they are only SPG not MMO's but look good:
Warpgate - EVE Online (without the mmo) for the iphone
Dark Nova - Elite for the iphone
I did purchase SmartGo - Great for learning the ancient Eastern game of Go eg (Othello/backgammon)
