AOL radio is right near the top for me. I ain't kidding you, this was the third or fourth song that showed up for me...

I'm finding AIM to be a little buggy.

Cube Runner is da bomb. It's old school gaming fun at its best.

That's a good one for a fast food-aholic like myself.

What movie app do you guys like the best? I'm liking Showtimes the best.

So far Remote and FiatLux are very useful. ...so are PayPal and Ebay.

I like Alarm Free only cause others find it annoying Very Happy

Showtimes
GoogleMobile
AIM
Pandora
NetNewsWire
Twinkle

Those are what I've found the most useful thus far.

Edit: Oh, and Remote, but I am waiting for something better, something like what RemoteBuddy or Sailing Clicker could do, ya know.

Hmmm. ..

...the perfect App. would be one that allows you to remotely access your Mac or PC, that would rock, just incase you forgot some important data at home or at work

I don't know how possible that is, and if it is, It'll likely not be a free App.

Mocha VNC allows you to do this, haven't tried it yet, but there's a lite version for free in the app store.

It seems cool, but you need to install RealVNC:

http://www.realvnc.com/index.html

..and for Mac's you need to get the enterprise edition, which is $50, not bad if it works smoothly. There's a free version available too, or trials, so maybe I'll try it on a PC first, and if it works ok, I'll just get the Enterprise edition for my Mac. ...which I guess I'd need to licenses, one for my laptop, and one for the iMac or Mac Mini, and than maybe an other for the Windows Server at work.

OK, so I tried this out last night. You need to enable Apple Remote Management in order to use this (which is built in to the OS, so save your $50 bucks on RealVNC).

I have had, for some time, been using Screen Sharing to allow my other Apple desktops to VNC in and access it, but this pre-existing set up did not work with the Mocha VNC, so I figured I'd give Remote Management a shot to see if it'd work, and it works smooth as butter - at least on my home wifi network - haven't tried it over Edge yet.

I'll give remote management a try, god idea. I've used it from Mac to Mac, but never from iPhone to Mac, but I'll try it. Thanks.

I was just playing around with the free version of Exposure. It's kinda nice if you use Flickr.

I don't understand why the eBay app isn't available in the U.K. when loads of U.S. centric apps are available here :S
