    Well I got a IPhone 3GS for my birthday this past weekend and I've got a few good apps so far (Transformers:Awakening, Pandora, Netflix, Vevo) and was wondering if anyone knew of any real good apps that are good to have. I don't mind paying for apps but not going to spend more then a few bucks for one as I don't get much time to play on my phone b/c of my job but looking for something to do on my down time.....any help is appreciated.

    Not sure if Infnity Blade will run on 3GS, but I was pretty sure it's supposed to. It's a pretty awesome game. Not the best game evar, but it looks really nice, and once you get a handle on the controls, the fighting is pretty fun. Gameloft is like the Konami for iPhone. A lot of their games are pretty damn good, and they know the handset well-enough to make the games work, even with touch controls.

    If you like games like Final Fantasy: Eternal Legacy
    If you like games like Oblivion: Aralon
    If you like HALO: N.O.V.A.
    If you like Uncharted: Shadow Guardian

    Samurai 2 is pretty awesome and Warpgate is a huge Space RPG, as is Galaxy on Fire.
    Across Age, and Zenonia 2 are good if you're a Zelda fan, and Dungeon Hunter 2 is awesome Diablo-style four player dungeon hunting. Real Racing is an awesome sim-type racer, and for the casual games, Anrgy Birds, Cut the Rope, Mega Worm (My personal favorite), Spider, and Trucks and Skulls.

    If you have netflix get the app.
    End of the month both Dead space and Devil may cry are coming to the iphone.
    Aralon is one of the largest games on the iphone
    Modern combat 2 is the best FPS multiplayer on the iphone market
    Seven swords is a good free mmo
    Street fighter 4 is well done
    Call of duty Zombies is a great survival shooter game
    Zeonia is a good zelda type game
    giana sisters is a super mario type game
    Chaos rings is an awesome rpg from squarsoft
    GTA china townwars is the same game on the psp and ds at 1/2 the price
    Battle bears is a hillarious shooter game where you kill zombie fluffy bears and rainbows come out of their decapitated corpses.
    Archetype is a good 10 player shooter where you play against other players over 3g.
    Zombie infection is a good Resident evil clone
    There is also RE4 and degeneration, but zombie infection is better than both.

    If you're into classic RPGs, SquareEnix has shown great support for the platform, porting over the PSP remakes for Final Fantasy I and II, with FF Tactics: War of Lions due in the near future. Secret of Mana just got released (its first release since 1993!), with some minor improvements (some spiffy new water effects, smoothed over graphics, and a bit tougher enemy AI. Loses multiplayer, though, unfortunately). They've also got a few lower-budget exclusive games, as well as the exclusive DS/PSP-quality Chaos Rings.

    Capcom's also been gathering a decent showing, with a great mobile version of Street Fighter 4, versions of Resident Evil 4 and 5, a full port of the first Phoenix Wright game (hope to dear god the others get announced), and a version of Devil May Cry 4 that's supposed to be due late this month.

    Ugh, Doodle God. It's interesting at first, but then you quickly run out of obvious solutions, and then it just becomes this frustrating game of trial and error. Just play the Flash version for the experience. Extra combinations or not, the game's not worth money.


    Devil May Cry 4 comes out next week. I'm curious as to how that'll turn out. Early impressions sounded good, but it'll be interesting to see if the whole game manages to capture the series' feel adequately with just the touch-screen. Just a 10 level Nero-only campaign right now, but Dante and extra levels are supposed to be patched-in soon.

    TrainyardEX is a very challenging puzzle game, plus it's free. However, I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have a decent amount of time on your hands though.

    My List of Good apps:
    Paid:
    Cut the Rope - Good little puzzle game. Try the lite version and you will be hooked.
    Angry Birds - Another fun game. Another fun puzzle game.
    The Price is Right - if you like the TV show try one of the two versions available. 2010 has a few more games and little bit better graphics and the older version. There are two ways to play. standard show (plays like a real game) and 3 strikes (fail an attempt at Contestant's Row or the Wheel and get a strike. Keep playing games, showdowns, contestant's row, etc till three strikes)
    Family Feud - Another TV game show game. If you like the show, try your brain at the home version.
    Plants Vs Zombies - Action puzzle tower defense game. Fun if you got lots of time like a long commute on public transportation.
    Geared/Geared 2 - puzzle game involving gears
    logic Box - collection of puzzle games

    Free:
    TrainyardEx - Get the trains to the stations. Fun free puzzle
    Lets Tans/TansZen - ever try that puzzle where you arrange shapes to match a silhouette? That is what these are. It is a good pick up and play for a few minutes game.
    FreeAppADay - Get hooked up with free apps.



    Glowpuzzle - a light up puzzle that is good for short plays.

    Non Games:
    Sleep machine is great as a white noise machine if you need help sleeping. Very good choices of sounds. I use the two heavy rain/thunder and the wind as my three sounds. Very relaxing. Get a decent iHome and you got it made.
    IPity - Mr. T phrases.. and it is free! buy it foo'!
    Soundhound - find out the name of the song on the radio. It works well. I got an Ipod Touch and since I need wiFi it just saves it and I can find out later!

    Game Center is fun, it pulls all the news straight from "ShackNews.com", keeps me updated with any big gaming news.

    I was using MLBatBAT 2010 because I'm a baseball nut and that was absolutely amazing, best app I've ever used.

    Game wise? If you like games like Final Fantasy, I suggest ... Final Fantasy. Costs some cash but it's a near perfect port of the original.

    Capcom Arcade is pretty cool. Comes with 2 versions of Street Fighter 2, 1942, Commando, Ghouls and Ghosts, and Ghosts n Goblins. You get three free plays a day but can buy more tokens if you want.

    Real Racing GTI is a cool racing game. "Words with friends" is kind of cool.
