    I really miss a few apps I had on my iPhone:

    1) What's On...(it took me a while to find a good app on my Eris, Tv Guide for the US

    2) Wikipedia...I searched for this and never found anything

    3) Dictionary....it was a simple dictionary and thesaurus app. Any suggestions for a replacement?

    4) AllRecipes...I could not find one decent recipe app out there...PLEASE are there any I might have missed?

    5) Epicurious

    Are there any other good apps I'm missing? Please suggest some to me.

    Here's the list of apps I've already downloaded:

    AK Notepad
    Amazon
    AppManager
    Barcode Scanner
    BBCNews
    CameraZOOM
    CardioTrainer

    I actually contacted them right after getting my phone and they said it is in the works. I recommend everyone that wants this app on Android fill this out and let them know. The more people that want it, the faster they will work (in theory of course).

    itunes or some other "app" that allows for easy syncing of music, video and podcasts - double twist blows!

    1. Plink - just because it is so cool. Aim your camera at a work of art/famous painting and snap pic and it tell you who painted it and the name and all kinds of info

    2. Evernote - really cool for taking notes, keeping track of bottles of wine, etc that you want to check out later...just snap a pic and jot done some details. Snap a pic of invoices, etc. Can also be accessed on your computer.

    3. fb reader - for reading ebooks
    4. iskoot - for skype
    5. photoshop.com for mobile
    6. twitroid - for twitter
    7. bloo - a decent fb app
    8. QueueMan - for netflix queue
    9. sports tap
    10. Easy Shopping - for quick grocery shopping lists

    I am looking for a good montly budget apps. I have downloaded a couple but they are too complicated. Just wants something simple.

    Thanks for all the tips!

    So what is the best way to use skype on your cell? I just paid for a subscription and online number, and when I tried to use the skype app I think it used my minutes. Can people call your online number and reach you on your cell? Does that use data or minutes? I know that some people have mentioned Fring, iSkoot, etc...which app is the best? I want to use a lot less minutes.

    Agreed that Plink is lots and lots of fun. Most of the time, though, it's attempts to identify art are so far off base as to be hilarious. :)
