So I jumped on the iPhone bandwagon and have myself a cool new toy now (securely swaddled in a pretty teal Otterbox case)
What apps out there do you guys love and can't live without? Free is awesome but not required.
I'm thinking I definitely want something for grocery lists but other than that I just don't know. There are so many!

Thomas H. Cruise!
I just downloaded Tango (by recommendation of BGTB) which is an app like Skype, which allows you to videochat without the use of WiFi.
If you like boggle or scrabble you should download Scramble with Friends and Words with Friends- quite addicting games. If you like Pictionary- try the Draw Something app.
I also like the Flashlight App (because you never know when you will need a flashlight) and I use the Instagram App, because it makes my pictures look more professional
I use the My Fitness Pal app to track calories.

Shunnnnn the unbeliever. Shunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
Depends on what type of Apps you are looking for.
Mint.com is a good financial App.
Weather Radio sends me the severe weather updates for the current location where you are at
Gas Buddy will locate Gas Stations close to you and provide prices
Groupon and Living Social Apps make it all too easy to purchase their daily deal
I also have the local radar saved onto my home screen, good to look at the radar before turning horses out.
Nike GPS- will track your runs, how far and how fast
Pandora- I stream radio all day long, plugged into my Bose speaker system at work everyday
Pinterest- if you know what the website is, that is self explanatory
Mapquest- I like it better than the Maps App that comes installed on the phone
Waze- a social media type Traffic reporting.
As far as games go, my favorites are
Draw Something *Free*- its like pictionary with your friends
Temple Run- free
7 Little Words- its a word game, with crossword puzzle clues
Tiny Tower- addictive game, build a Sims like tower
Foursquare- yes I tend to check-in to places where I am at.

It'll be an adventure! We're going on an adventure!
I haven't yet entered the land of the i-phone, but I saw this thread earlier and then saw this article, so figured I'd come back and share it with you:
Looks like some neat tips on there... have fun with the new toy!

Thanks everyone! So far I've downloaded Facebook, Words with Friends, Instagram, Groupon, and Mapmyrun.
BG - I saw that this morning and read it thoroughly with my new toy in hand. I thought it was a very timely article
