Since it is so time consuming to try out most apps, I thought a thread needed to be started for us to recommend apps that we feel are good.

I would be interested in a game that is engaging, but does not have an option to purchase extra stuff (gems, coins or whatever).   I even tried a football app that had the option of paying $10 to gain extra skills.   I don't pay for extras, so I cannot compete against other online players.  It seems most games are this way.

As far as what I can recomment:

Iphone:
Worldcard - allows you to take a pic of a business card and it will automatically (and accurately) add all the info to your contacts.   I love this and it's free.  

Mapmyhike - records and maps you from start to finish (doesn't have to be a hike).

Speedometer - There are several of these which work very well.   It was neat while taking off on a plane.

Army of Darkness Defense - Pretty neat and addicting

Lapse It - Time lapse pic taking.   You can set it to snap a pic as little as every 2 seconds.  Then it will play it like a video (or GIF file).  Pretty cool to see how I flip flop at night while sleeping.

Action Movie - Just cool

Dropbox - Of course this made the list

Android:
I'll post some Android later as I don't have a device with me.

I love my GasBuddy and it's available for both Android and iPhone. It allows you to find gas by entering a zip code or if you have your gps turned on, it will simply find what's nearest you within a decent radius of your location. When gas prices fluctuate so often, it's a handy app to have, for sure!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I forgot to add that one.   It is fast, simple and accurate.   I use it weekly.

This is my personal favorite app, TuneIn Radio. It gives access to every radio station in the world & even Internet stations. It even plays previously recorded sessions like, DJ Shadow's Boiler Room Set & Old episodes of Darkness Radio & The Paracast.

I love the Gas buddy app too. I have more kid friendly apps on my phone than regular ones, but I use Songza almost everyday. It plays ad free streaming music and you can choose your playlist based on specific moods or activities.  The only downsides I've found so far is you can only skip a certain amount of songs per hour and you can't search for specific songs to hear. But the playlists are pretty good and you can save your favourite ones.  (I think it's similar to Pandora but since I live in Canada and don't have access to it I can't compare)

Sounds pretty much like Pandora. Can you search by artist?

I'm pretty sure you can search an artist but it will just give you playlists they are featured in along with similar artist playlists.

Action Movie FX and Flashlight are cool ones.  Police scanner, also.

I believe it is legal in the states.    Not in a vehicle in some states though.

Well I'm no ambulance chaser or gumshoe...
However the case is moot because I live in the UK.
I'll leave it to the ones who do get a real kick out of it.
I'm staying well away.

i think it is more a curiosity for me.    If you see a bunch of fire trucks go by and you want to know why.
