A few of my favourite iPhone apps

I bought the iPhone 3G S on the day it came out on June 19 and I’ve been pretty happy with it. Granted, I went from a Motorola Razr 3.0, probably the worst off all the cell phones I have even owned and I've owned about four. Granted, it's definitely not a smart phone so it's probably a bad comparison, but even doing "dumb" things on it, like say responding to an SMS or making a call, was painful.

Ugh, it irritates me just talking about that phone...

Where was I?

Oh, right, iPhone apps. So here’s a list of my current favourites in no particular order:

  • ConvertBot. Sure there are probably faster apps for converting feet to centimetres and what not, but this app is so fun to use I just don't care about those possible extra lost seconds
  • Eucalyptus. An ebook reader type app which is essentially an awesome interface to the archives of Project Gutenberg. You get easy access to over 20,000 books! For free! Well, the app isn't free, but totally worth the price. I’ve been working my way through the Sherlock Holmes series.
  • TouchTerm Terminal access from your iPhone or iPod Touch?! Hell yeah! I’m telling you, it’s so good to be able to ssh into my shared account on Joyent and edit something in nano from wherever I am. SO GOOD!
  • BeejiveIM Instant messaging from anywhere?! Are you kidding me?! No, I'm not. It's great. You can long into MSN, MobileMe/AOL, Jabber, and Google Talk accounts all at once from a nice interface on you iPhone or iPod Touch.
